Are you a decision-maker or a procrastinator?


Procrastination is probably one of the main reasons most people aren’t satisfied with their lives.

Procrastination means giving up on yourself, it means paying too much attention to other’s opinions about you and the possibilities in your life, it means looking at successful people and asking yourself “What if?” when it will probably be too late to change something.

Well, I’m here (wait, Mr Hill is here) to tell you that taking action equals making decisions.

What do you want your life to look like?

Go out there, draw your ideal life on a piece of paper, and, after comparing your potential life with your current one, provide yourself what’s currently lacking, be it more resources, more positive associations or more powerful routines and habits. 

Spend the rest of your natural life waking up and going after your goals.

Remember that everyone has opinions, even people who shouldn’t, and the sooner you grasp this, the faster you can decide to not put up with people whose aim is just that of bringing you and your dreams down.

“Well done is well said.”

Go out there and do something, then excuse yourself.

Not the other way around.

Listen to everybody’s opinion, but be respectful to them.

But remember they’re just opinions.

Take them with a grain of salt: smile, thank the people who expressed them and do your things regardless.

Make decisions and stick with those decisions no matter what (only change them by yourself if you really need to).
