Then I got home and turned on the news. Let's see if I missed any more 8.8 earthquakes. For the five minutes that I have to watch the news, I need the Cliff Notes version. Just give me the recap of the major events, and I'll be on my way.
Today Nate was asleep when I got home so I had a few extra minutes to listen to the World events. Brian Williams was talking about the magnitude of the recent Chilean earthquake. "To put it in perspective," he said, "the quake was so big it literally knocked the earth off it's axis and shortened the day by a few millionths of a second."
Well there you have it. Thank God I turned on the news, it's not just me, the whole world was off it's axis! And now I have the excuse I need. Everything will NOT get done, because the day was shorter. I'm sure in that millionth of a second I could have:
- Returned 25 emails
- Created a website
- Written a Sales training course
- Planned an event
- Approved a Purchase Order
- Submitted my Expense Report
- Paid 5 bills
- Returned 6 calls
- Gone grocery shopping
- Edited 5 chapter in a book
P.S. I did find time for a run though. At least I got my endorphins for the day.
