I’ve got a lot of shit to do by Monday morning. My stress level is peaking, but I have this thing that I do that keeps me cool. The trick is to take what you have to do today – and just go ahead and put it on your schedule for tomorrow. That way you can take the rest of the night off and relax. It works with pretty much anything, and the best thing about it is eventually things start to become obsolete. At this point you can just completely remove them from your to-do list.
Like, say your to-do list demands that you get a birthday gift for your friend, whose birthday is in 2 days. But you’re tired. Cross it off! Move it until tomorrow. Next day rolls around and a friend asks you to go bowling. “But I have to get a gift for my friend.” No, you don’t – go ahead and reschedule. You can get the gift in the morning. Too many beers at the bowling alley could lead to a moderate hangover in the morning. Nobody likes to shop with a hangover, so just move that gift buying shit one more day and take it easy. Then, all of a sudden, you realize that your friend’s birthday has passed, yet you still have this buy-a-gift nonsense on your schedule. Time for a sigh of relief – you just bought yourself a whole year.
I hope that helps you guys become better people. I’ve had about 20 songs sitting on my desktop for a while now and I’ve narrowed it down to 2 for this post. I would throw up all the others, but for some odd reason they all seem played out and obsolete.
