I’ve tried at least a dozen productivity software applications.
I own eight word processing apps.
It ain’t the productivity software, is it?
It ain’t the word processing app, is it?
This has been on my mind lately, but it got pushed into the forefront when I got Brice’s Fish.
Brice, the General Manager at Pomegranate Foods, Sioux Falls’ Organic Food SuperHappyAwesome place, sends his senior staff some little thought to ponder each day he calls Fish. Lynn and I are fortunate to be on this list.
Here’s what he sent on Wednesday morning:
Have you ever met someone who is always late? Does it help if you give that person an extra ten minutes to get ready? No, it doesn’t. The reason is simple: The habit that creates the tendency to be late is not the clock, or the time of day. Instead, it stems from an inner habit–the tendency to wait until the last possible minute to leave. This habit, like all others, comes from inside the person and is reflected in his or her life.
People with more letters behind their names than me say it takes 30 days to build a new habit.
The best day to get started was yesterday.
Know the second best?
What are you waiting for?

I loved this post. I am notoriously late and have nothing or no one to blame but myself. I often get disappointed in myself too. It’s good to hear from the ‘experts’ that if I make changes in some areas, and consistently, that others will fall in to place. First step; getting to work on time and not feeding in to our “8:05 culture.” Thanks Tim!
You’re on the right path! Baby steps, yo. Remember what Kerouac said: “Walking on water wasn’t built in a day.”
