Just in Time for Ice Cream

In the late summer, ice cream is my vice of choice. Milkshakes can cure what ails ya, and a carton of Moose Tracks is available in my freezer. During those phases, it’s not uncommon to find my ice cream scoop in the sink: dirty and in the way.

As soon as it’s clean, I scoop up some ice cream. Then it’s time to eat ice cream, not do dishes! Back in the sink it goes.

One could transmogrify this into just-in-time delivery. The scoop is available right as it’s needed, after all. But you can seek the truth and recognize that it’s nothing but procrastination and waste of space.

Think of your brain power, your workspace, your schedule. So long as stuff gets done, we can pass off all manner of dirty, wasteful habits as part of an overall efficient system. But the truth may lead to cleaner, useful changes you can make as soon as you’re ready to acknowledge them.
