Kill Your Lawn

by Steve Prager on June 8, 2011

Following your inclination (in my case, blogging) is hard dad gum work.

First, you have to spend a fair amount of time giving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to your half dead dreams.   

Then you’ll spend 3/4 of  your creative time arguing with your inner critic (heartless bastard).

After you’re done with the rough draft, there’s the extra time it takes for cutting away the fat.

Add at least another half hour to fix the poor grammar and mangled syntax ( why, oh why didn’t I pay better attention in skool?)   

Don’t forget time for those brilliant insights you left out of the 1st draft, adding the photos and formatting the text.

TIME   TIME    TIME

being passable good at anything takes time – lots of it.

Nowadays, smart folks believe that TIME is the new currency, not $$.

Although we all get the same _______ seconds everyday,

Most of us waste a good deal of our time on stupid stuff.

WE CAN’T DO IT ALL

You get to Choose:

Family………..or  TV

Checking out facebook………. or Painting

Mowing the lawn……………………………….or writing your blog (novel, whatever) 

KILL THE LAWN

write a love poem

KILL THE LAWN

go paint instead

KILL THE LAWN

dust off that guitar

KILL THE LAWN

plant a wildflower garden it its place :)

Live out in the country and enjoy a wild landscape! Its all-natural, kid and dog approved… just let nature do its thing!
