It is amazing what can be accomplished when someone has a single, overriding goal in mind.  Despite every distraction, every possible trip-up, every attempt to be forcibly re-focused elsewhere, the truly motivated people of the world bear down on their goal and fulfill their mission unerringly.  There are many who use it for practical purposes, to accomplish a load of work in a short time, while others use this superhuman focus to assiduously avoid anything approaching work not matter what.  Guess which camp I’m in?

I did just enough work to prove that I was here today, and that’s enough to get paid for according to the Good Ole US Government.  Other than that, I single-mindedly pursued my goal of doing absolutely nothing else productive.  Even writing this post is more work than I’ve done today.  It’s Friday, short week next week, holidays, parties, fun, and amazing Scotch whiskey is on the way!  Nice.
