i’m working on copy for a brochure with a 6:00 deadline, and suddenly i’m thinking: shelves.

well, i definitely need some shelves. i figure i’m going to keep thinking about shelves, so i may as well do a quick search for shelving on the web. one search won’t hurt, right? one speedy little search and i’m back to work. soon i’m perusing home decorating ideas. i take a quick look at a do-it-yourself site. but what’s this? a cooking site with an easy recipe for gazpacho? i decide i better go see what that’s all about. and wait, i’ve been coveting some le creuset cookware. wonder if i can afford that…

and before my practical mind can even get a guilt-ridden or deadline-conscious thought in, i'm googling le creuset.

finally—after another 20 minutes of idly browsing kitchen utensils and realizing, for the 8th time, that I can NOT afford le creuset—self-discipline desperately kicks and bites through the thick layers of distraction. and i fearfully remember my deadline.

but then i think: well, i better get a quick blog entry in first…you know, just so i won’t get distracted again later…
