It would be static … boring … dull.” – Dr. Dennis O’Grady (2011, Rick) This quote resonates a lot with me because, although I am not naturally very comfortable with change, (mainly because they alter my many, many well-made plans), I believe I would be very bored if I felt like my life was not progressing forward....   [tags: Procrastination, Perfectionism, Good and evil]
