Isn’t that typically what you do? I do it too. You’ve got clients or your boss, family, friends, and everyone else’s priorities. You’ve got to get it all done first, right? So, that big idea you’ve got…you’ll do it next week. If not next week, then definitely the following week, right? At least by the […]
