I am grateful for challenges?  I think so.  This has been a challenging week for me professionally and to some extent, personally as well.  I have learned to face challenges head on.  The quicker you take care of them, the easier they are to handle; if you wait longer to handle them, your task becomes greater.  I try to remind myself of this whenever I face a chanllenge, but sometimes Mister Procrastination invites me to do something else.  It is interesting that no matter how convincing Procrastination is…the Challenge always wins in the end.  I am faced with the challenge, no matter how long I put it off.  So I am learning that taking care of it, right away, usually pays greater dividends, than putting it off.  It is kind of like collecting interest on money.  Would you want to start collecting interest right away, or put it off and wait?
