You hate the thought of changing
Change is hard – most people don’t tolerate change as a byproduct of being human. Many people move because of their needs and quickly realize that moving is stressful, expensive and they want to do as little as possible in their life.
Lifestyle is important
What was once heralded at Jones’ pace is now recognized as a legitimate exercise in maintaining value and increasing happiness.
