Summary


Everyone procrastinates. Whether it's cleaning out your closet, writing your life memoir or even something as simple as finding the right Banker for your business... Whether it’s personal or professional, we all are guilty of kicking task and projects down the path with no true direction or specific focus in mind. Something must change! As Anthony Robbins puts it, the pain of not completing the task will eventually out weighted the pain of completing it.
