“It is easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.”

Leonardo da Vinci

It is definitely a struggle to start. But when the going gets going, it becomes quite the journey — a worthwhile experience it turns out.

So what does it take to start?

Well, here is a theory I would like to share.

I believe our need to procrastinate comes from false fear. We start developing images in our minds of how things will not work out and so we start to justify to ourselves subconsciously whether or not something is worth the effort.

I would like to argue that everything is worthwhile if the intention behind it is. What makes an opportunity worthwhile is our intention and commitment, which leads me to think that procrastination firstly originates from our internal general fears about ourselves and our ability to come through.

Are we really cut out for the journey? For the disappointment that may bring us down?

It’s a hell of a journey to be alive. Many things required to live a full life are a thread of a needle across.

If we can trust ourselves, we might just get there.
