Somedays, I think it should be ok to just not do all the things. You know, just really make the decision to do nothing productive and not beat yourself up about it. Neutralizing the imagination monster is the first step..
Sometimes my brain doesn't cooperate.
I wish I could give it five dollars and send it on its way.
A really, really vapid magazine or web site (I love you, Cracked.com!) will also do the trick. Bliss!
PS: It was a terrible idea to go get the Cracked URL, I lost at least half an hour to "Things that all superheroes forget" and similar brain foods..
