NEW BOOK!

You waste time. You complain. You make excuses. And you procrastinate.

Are you tired of yourself yet?

Your loved ones are too nice to say it to your face, but there’s a reason you aren’t getting what you want despite being capable of achieving it.

You steal from your heroes and you plan all you want, and yet you are still standing in the same place. Why We Don’t Achieve Sh*t will outline exactly why you are more than capable and yet fail to see your goals through to the end. Toxic friendships, negotiable goals, procrastination, and lack of deadlines—Why We Don’t Achieve Sh*t addresses why you aren’t getting what you deserve and how to opt out of this loop.

That is, unless you’re seriously not sick and tired of this sh*t yet. Everyone else is.
