Essential Ingredients Every Master Procrastinator Knows

Tim Urban knows that procrastination doesn't make sense, but he's never been able to shake his habit of waiting until the last minute to get things done. In this hilarious and insightful talk, Urban takes us on a journey through YouTube binges, Wikipedia rabbit holes and bouts of staring out the window and encourages us to think harder about what we're really procrastinating on, before we run out of time.

As usual, TED delivers outstanding 15 minutes video of Tim Urban, the guy who perfected the art of procrastination. Why do you procrastinate? In fact, it is not you, it is instant gratification monkey that does it for you. Monkey see, monkey have. We do it all the time in our lives. We postpone and delay what needs to be done NOW. And later find ourselves with more stress and less achievements.

There is a very easy and simple way to break such a vicious cycle is to set deadlines for our tasks. That way you get reminded to stop feeding your inner monkey. Continue reading How to stay sharp and youthful when you age.

Why Are Children So Obsessed With Pants

How maid services help you to archive your goals

My family and I were taking a trip to New York for vacation. Before we went on the trip, many of my friends told me that they went to The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester and they really enjoyed the experience, so my wife and I decided to see for ourselves. We definitely made the right decision because my entire family had the time of their lives. When it was time to leave, no one wanted to go, because they were having so much fun! But that wasn’t the best part. Some of my friends also mentioned that the museum also had a special service for children who have accidents during their stay.

People donate their old pants to the museum for parents who forgot to pack an extra pair. This incident happened to us. My four year old is toilet trained but he sometimes still has accidents. This was the case when we were at the museum. Not long after we arrived we smelled something and we knew exactly what it was. My little son was having too much fun to bother asking for the bathroom! We had no idea what to do when suddenly, it hit me. The service saved the day! We went to the front desk were they quickly brought us out a pair of pants for my desperate son. We happily went home with a fresh pair of pants. I am sure we are not the only parents that are delighted by this amazing service that save many desperate parents. Thank you so much for this amazing addition to your museum that save so many helpless parents from going home from the museum early only because their child had an accident.

These pants were pieces of art, something between winter snow pants and sport runs with ripped strip on side. I thought to myself the 1st thing I'll do when I go back home I'll go through them in the garbage. Home I suggested to my son to change the pants to his regular pants and I put them on couch, I was little bit surpassed why he didn't ask me first. After few minutes I saw them in the same place and sweetly calmness while he was playing. The next day and the next day during few good months every single day after school, he ran to his closet to change his perfect pants to those synthetic ripped snow pants.

Definitely those pants had kind of magic. Why he was preferred them. And then I understood, when he got these pants in his eyes it wasn't just the piece of rug from the Kids Museum that gave him a janitor, but rather a special present from Big Big Famous Royal Castle. From his perspective it was a sign of love, care and value. I learned a lesson for myself that you can't buy love and respect for kids via money no matter how much you will spend. Only through true censorial love and care. But what you can buy is more time in your life when Cleaning Ladies And Maids do the cleaning job for you, so you can spend that time more productively.

How maid service can help you to be the one you always wanted to be

I came across eye opening audio book Staying Sharp. Started listening couple days ago, still can't stop.

The books are by the author of The Chemistry of Joy and The Chemistry of Calm and come a practical guidebook for building and maintaining a sharp, healthy, and vibrant mind. It is an awesome book, use your library card and get it on your cellphone or iPod, listen when you are on treadmill, walking, etc. Don't have time for this, sure you do. Consider getting maids and cleaning ladies to save you time for the book, they will do the job you hate and waste your precious time on.

Why do we procrastinate, and how to avoid it

Very interesting lecture by Dr. Tim Pychyl why most of us delay, delay, and delay tasks that need to be done. Apparently one reason is our eagerness to seek pleasure and avoid pain. Every time we move the task schedule for tomorrow, we just avoid the discomfort of dealing with the problem now. One of the approaches is to break the task into smaller, more manageable sub tasks. Make these sub tasks concrete, that way it is easier to start doing it now. And remember “How do you eat an elephant? The answer is Piece by piece.”

How to enjoy a stay at Horseshoe Ski Resort even more

Our mind was made up, we were going up north for a day of skiing. The forecast for that day was 60-90 percent chance of rain but we decided to go anyway. We bought ski tickets for the afternoon for the whole family for $394 and it was perfect weather in the morning.

While we were there, I noticed a sign: No refunds due to the weather, but I didn't pay much attention to it. After we bought the tickets, we decided to go to the hotel before we go skiing, unpack and eat dinner.

At five o'clock, we were ready to start skiing but as we left the front door, my heart sank - water was dripping on my receipt of $394! For a minute, I thought it was my tears but then the truth dawned on me: it was raining! I was devastated and had no solution to the problem. We decided to try our luck and go see if there was a chance of getting money back. I must thank the Horseshoe Resort staff for being so kind and considerate!!! They gave us back our $394 without any trouble.

We didn't want to disappoint our kids too much so we found a hill and brought a sled from home and all my kids had an amazing time sledding down the hill even though they missed out on skiing. Since our idea was such a big hit, we decided to do the same the next morning. On Monday afternoon on the way back home, my kids were thanking us for the wonderful trip but my husband and I were thanking Horseshoe Resort staff for their amazing service. The kids were happy that we stayed at the hotel, but my husband and I were happy with an extra cash in the pocket.
