I have never begun any important venture for which I felt adequately prepared.
I hate procrastination with a passion, despite being a much more avid user of it than I would like to be.Â It stops you from doing all the things you want to do with your life because you’re too scared, or you’re not prepared enough (At least, that’s what you tell yourself.) to...
