Before doing that, find a copy of Chris Wolfe's book and see if there's anything you can add to it.

I procrastinate with the best of you.  My best trait is to buy something that I think I might some day want and wind up putting it on a shelf and forgetting about it.  Just the other day I found something for a Jeep Grand Cherokee that was my daily driver - four other daily drivers have come and gone since not counting the one  I drive now.

Why? People have always asked me that. Do they have some dysfunction that makes them ask?

 

Maybe it is just a conversation starter when they feel awkward.

Good day,

 

I was was planning on waiting to respond to this thread, but I’ve been working on getting better at not putting things off... (new New Years’ resolution)

 

For years I planned on building a new garage, drove my wife nuts that I could never make a final decision and pull the trigger, but in 2016 I actually did get it finished. To commemorate the occasion, I carved a “plaque” that hangs over the door...

 

Later,

EDIT: For those, like me, that believe the old adage, “pics, or it didn’t happen”, before and after of the garage...

I started this simple re-paint in early 2015, and this is where it is at as of right now!!!

I don't procrastinate, I just delegate jobs to my future self.

It's the perfectionism that stops me. That, and "for a dollar more". I bought my 64 thinking that it needed some dry hoses replaced and it would be a runner. Found that the starter and charging circuits were partially burned. So that turned into learning about wiring and loads and wire gauges. So then I had to find the right crimper, and wire type, and next thing I know i've rewired most of the frontend. Then I found other stuff that I might as well clean and upgrade. Three years down now. I definitely slaughtered a cow, when I just wanted a hamburger.

Yeah, tell me about it "while I have it apart" let me just do this.  Amazing something that should take 30 minutes turns into years.

When I was a kid, our barber had a stack of these. If you sat in the chair and talked about a project you had been putting off, he would hand you one of these as you left. He said your excuse was now gone, as you now have a round tuit. My dad still has his stack, so I come by it naturally.

I have a bag of those round wood plugs that have been in the attic since the 1980's. I am planning to letter them with the TUIT logo, but things keep coming up.

In my world it is the "might as wells" that kills me.

So does that mean something like "as long as I'm changing the air filter, I might as well overhaul the engine."?
