How To Channel Procrastination Into Productivity
The biggest mystery facing Americans today, besides this wacky childhood obesity issue or why guns keep acting out against us (WE LOVE YOU, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS???) is how to turn procrastination into productivity. People have gotten hideously rich off books about how to be a less disgusting person. Others have gotten $1.70 in monthly ad revenue blogging thousands of words about their deep, exhaustive musings on the subject of you fucking blow at everything you try to do. A massive amount of drunk human trainwrecks have vomited their wisdom and whiskey on strangers at the local watering hole/TGI Friday’s. Everyone insists they’ve got the key to the castle of not sucking shit all the goddamn time. But nobody else has come up with the one, true truth. Because nobody else is me. And until now, I’ve never shared this secret with the world. Maybe it’s all the coffee I’ve had or the whole napkin I ate with my burrito yesterday, but I suddenly feel compelled to share the trick. Brace yourself, because once you read these golden words, your brain will reassess its place in this world in a vaguely suicidal but mostly inspirational way, and the ride might get a lil bumpy.
