“If you put everything off until you’re sure of it, you’ll get nothing done”

Amen. I’m not sure of anything – I’m not sure I should have quit my real job. I’m not sure I shouldn’t have renewed my lease or that I should just be working these seasonal jobs. I’m not sure where I’m going to live. I’m also not sure that I should be “planning” to move … More “If you put everything off until you’re sure of it, you’ll get nothing done”
