you know how, when you have a task coming due, and you precieve it as daunting, you can think of one million other things to do that will just take a second? And so you can keep putting off starting the big-looking task almost literally indefinately?

don't do that. Leap in. Sin boldly. It's almost never as big as you think, once you get up close to it.

I wrote one hard email today, and am about to write another. And my magical husband did the clerical task that he always puts off.

And then I am going to shut down the computer, and meet him at a restaurant, and eat a steak.
A small one.

"Sin boldly"

I think I'll get that on a t-shirt, thanks :)

Not original, though, which makes it even better:

In a letter to his friend Philip Melanchthon, on August 1, 1521, Martin Luther wrote, "Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly... Pray boldly - for you too are a mighty sinner."

pretty good, huh?
