…beautiful words by Ellen Degeneres
Ever since I was a small child in elementary school, I have been a genius when it comes to putting things off. (NOT something I am proud of, I must say to be clear.) The moment I had a task to do, I thought of ways to delay actually having to do it. As I got older, I thought of more and more creative reasons for not doing things. Like, I once clearly declared to my teacher that “I could not do my homework because I had special needs”. I distinctly remember my mom laughing and saying “nice try, kid.” Needless to say, this did not work out!
I would like to show you a stand up show by Ellen DeGeneres that is all about procrastination. My amazing wife introduced me to this video a few years ago. I think we both know it off by heart by now. I have shown this video to so many people that it has almost become a requirement if you are part of my life. Ellen talks about our society and how procrastination falls into it.

This woman is always my go-to… whenever I need cheering up for example, I right away turn to YouTube-ing Ellen. I am a strong believer in these videos solving any problem life could throw at me. Her Hidden Camera Prank videos are also something I swear by 🙂
