We all love a bit of procrastination especially when it comes to things that take us out of our comfort zone.
Sometimes the delay is intentional because it’s never easy to take the first step.
Procrastination is one of the main barriers blocking you from getting up, making the right decisions and taking the first step towards changing your lifestyle.
Recent studies have shown that people regret more the things they haven’t done than the things they have done. In addition, feelings of regret and guilt resulting from missed opportunities tend to stay with people much longer.
When you procrastinate, you waste time that you could be investing in something meaningful. If you can overcome this fierce enemy, you will be able to accomplish more and in doing so better utilize the potential that life has to offer.
