Now of all the things I did today, channel surfing was by far the least exciting/fulfilling. But I'm pretty good at it and if you don't use it, you might lose it. The proof of this is how often my channel surf board goes missing.
I caught an interesting wave that really pulled me in. It was an infomercial on a set of exercise dvds. What really grabbed me was the before and after pics. I'm a sucker for those! And these weren't the kind of before pics that have terrible lighting/no makeup/posed at a deceptive angle, they seemed honest-to-goodness (though individual results may vary) against the after pics.
Anyway the price for the dvds wasn't $999, $599 or even $399 but it was well over my $19.95 comfort zone. That's not the point.
The point is right at this very moment, you are a potential "before" and you have the potential to be an "after" someday.
That's a very exciting thing. Especially for a disorganized guy like me and a disorganized girl like my wife. Oh, there's many a Kodak before moment in our house. And that's how I'm going to approach each messy, chaotic nook and cranny. I'll target a bathroom drawer, take a before pic, have at it, "move that bus" and take an after pic. Just a little thing I thought up a few minutes ago that might make a great TED talk someday.
Now I can't let today's blog entry go until I mention that the Packers are in the playoffs thanks to cleaning up the Bears on the very frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field (3 degrees with the windchill). Go, Pack! Go!
