I wrote this some time ago, but it's most relevant today, since another of my colleagues has proved to be a procrastinator...a champion of procrastination...a veritable czar of procrastination. He should have a tattoo that reads "Manana" on his head.
I am a single man. I care for two pets, my house, my yard, repairs, maintenance, my shopping, cooking, sewing and laundry. I do my own auto maintenance, house painting, cleaning and renovation. I have no outside or inside help.
People wonder how I can get so many things done, including taking four college-level classes during the last couple of months. How? I don't procrastinate, I don't sit and stare out the window or at my belly-button, I don't spend hours picking lint off my dick, and I don't waste my time by being hypnotized by the boob tube. I get up early and work, undisturbed, for several hours every day. Rain, shine or snow--during weekends and holidays. No day is different than the rest. I love what I do, and I do what I love.
