Take Note

I’m a reformed procrastinator. Instead of tackling an endless list of action items I’d do other things: Order food, clean, go out – you know… stuff. But it wasn’t until reading and watching numerous “24 Hours With” segments that I had an epiphany: People who get their shit done, get their shit done. They don’t complain, they just do.

Going to the gym first thing is smart (mostly because you forget you’ve been, plus the optimal calorie burn thing). Organizing the screenshots you take of places you intend to visit or eat is savvy – I’d invariably forget and have to text someone. Buying these slim-leg cotton trousers is shrewd – you’ll actually wear them through fall. But mostly (and from experience) know that giftcards expire. Use them!
