What are you delaying in your life?

LAKE OCONEE — In the early ‘90s, U.S. News and World Report told us that Chicago learned one price of neglecting the underpinnings of all its economic growth.

A quarter billion gallons of murky Chicago River water gushed into a 60-mile network of turn-of-the-century freight tunnels under the Loop and brought nearly all businesses to a soggy halt. It turned out that a top city official had known about the leak, but, acting for a cash-strapped government, had delayed repairs costing only about $50,000.

The final cost of the damage could run higher than $1 billion.

What are you delaying in your life? Might it have a tremendous cost if you keep delaying? Think about it. 

Wishing you much love and much light.
