The problem comes when I see other spots that I know I should clean, but I don’t because I detest them. With that in mind, our judges have put together this list of Top 5 places that I don’t like to clean. Continue reading “Top 5 places I don’t like to clean”

Now that Avengers: Endgame is finally almost here, we are bound to see plenty of pointless articles about the movie in order to draw in readers.
This is one of them. I will do whatever it takes to get more readers.
Whatever it takes.
I do, though, have several important comments and questions about the movie before it finally gets here and dominates the media and the box office.

Too often people talk about procrastinating as if it’s a bad thing.
Sure, there are good aspects to finishing projects quickly, but there are also numerous positives related to delaying your work.
Often when I am supposed to be doing something like completing a work project, cleaning the living room or tying my shoes, I get interrupted by important thoughts that must be pondered. I see this as a positive example of prioritizing. Continue reading “A few words in support of procrastination”
