climb that hill today!
Are you one of those people they call procrastinators? You are? Good, because I didn't want to feel alone in this. It's not that I can't make a decision or put things off forever, although there is a couple of things that still need doing around the house that have been there since we moved in almost five years ago! It's mainly because I choose not to do them. I tell myself there are "bigger fish to fry" and that it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things. And mostly, I'd be right. The point is, if your putting off major decisions because you're undecided, waiting for the right time or for all your ducks to be in a row, I'm sorry, but those things will never happen and so the thing you want to do, that important decision you need to make, will never be made. Do you think that mother duck calls to her ducklings, "Alright, we're going to cross the road. You all line up behind me now!" Nope, she just goes. And when she goes, all her ducklings line up and follow. Same will be for you. Make your decision, put yourself in gear, and go! All those things you were worrying about? They'll just fall into place behind you. Procrastination can help us in the short term, but it can be debilitating in the long term. Make that decision you've been putting off today!
