Increasing Urgency

There is a natural inertia. A gravitational pull towards inactivity and lack of productivity. The things in life that are worthwhile take effort and just plain old hard work. What we need is an appropriate sense of urgency in each circumstance, issue and situation.
Many of the issues we face at work and at home could be solved if the level of urgency around them was increased to the right level. Too often things don't SEEM urgent when they really are. Thus, the call to "wake up." My prayer is that we will give appropriate levels of priority and energy to the right things. Any area that seems to be frustrating to you because it is not changing the way it should is likely suffering from an inappropriate urgency level and could be well served by figuring out how to increase the urgency around it.
