    I would guess most of us have used some of these excuses at one point in the past.

    Hahaha. I've had an argument with my lawyer before because of this.

    Them: @AgainstAllOdds, You need to resubmit this document on your company's official letterhead.
    Me: I don't have letterhead.
    Them: Can you get some?
    Me: Why?
    Them: Because then it's official. Otherwise they won't accept it.
    [I go into Word, write my company name and address in the header. Print out, sign, and scan same document. Then email it.]
    Them: Thanks. That's perfect!

    Going off this, any level of Workaholism is typically action-faking too.
    Get what needs to be done, done - immediately.

    I'll start some real work once I get my profile pic sorted. It's got to be really cool though - so I'll just search the Internet. Some time later......

    Yep - I did this yesterday :)

    I won't upload anything to SoundCloud until I've sorted my profile pic.

    Oh shoot... I forgot to do that part.

    Basically the trend here is that everyone is waiting for that perfect time to take action.

    MJ talked about this in his book. And yes I'm guilty of almost everything here.

    It's all part of the human trait of been superstitious and ritualistic. Waiting for the perfect time when the stars align in your favor. And the ritual of having an event where everything explodes and you make it big.

    But don't forget to just do it. Just by having some sort of plan you're already in the top 90 percent of the population. You may not be in the 1 percent but you're getting there.

    Thread changed to gold. Too much value in here. Life lessons. This is the type of thread everyone could read through annually, as a splash of cold water to the face, a kick in the a$$, or a reminder.
