*Definition of "best friend": someone you can count on to bring out the best in you, you can depend on them to always be there, and they are so willing to help you out.
I don't know why I am such a lazy deadline girl. I will put things off (unless I love them, of course) until I absolutely have no wiggle room left. I envy people who just seem to waltz through life effortlessly.
Enter the magical kitchen timer. I tell myself, PROMISE myself, that I only have to do the dreaded, put-off-for-hours-days-millenia job for 10 minutes. I then set the timer, knowing when the ringer goes off, I can walk away, guilt free! The ticking begins (I like the ticking ones the best).
Here's the lesson, the first ten minutes are the hardest. You can thank your friend the lowly timer for helping you through it, for bringing out the best in you, and for making you look like one of those organized self-motivated waltzers.
