The "P" Word


Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
-Mark Twain

It's Friday. Yay! But my "to do" list keeps getting longer and looks more like something you'd prefer to see on a Monday with a full week ahead to get stuff done. And it's sunny and warm outside today, and i've really been wanting to plant some potatoes. (Can you see where this is going?) So i started the day off with an unexpected wave of good ol' procrastination. Oh yes, it happens. And that endorsement by Mr. Twain didn't really help. So while i was procrastinating, i found this fun animation about procrastination:


The thing about procrastination is that it doesn't last too long, and i know that This Too Shall Pass...oooh! which reminds me of that amazing video by OK Go. These guys have made procrastination into an inventive and creative art form.


Now to get back to that list...or...
