When it comes to doing what needs to be done, there’s usually something else we would rather be doing, even if that something is nothing. As any student of success will tell you, what usually stops us from doing what needs to be done is how we feel about it.
Certain tasks can be a drag. Especially if we don’t feel like doing it. But choosing not to do it, and deciding to be comfortable instead, leads to piles and piles of regret over the span of a lifetime.
