CONTEST: The race against procrastination

My friend Elena, who goes by the handle Latina Undercover, posted the following about today's fortune, which is Tomorrow will be a productive day. Don't oversleep:

"When I sleep late, I don’t accomplish as much. The mental defeat of feeling like I’m the last one off the starting line, combined with my tendency towards procrastination, usually leaves all things in my mind and on my to-do list better started tomorrow! Until recently, I’ve always been the one up early and then waiting for hours for everyone else to get up too. Perhaps the difference now is the snow or the cold. Whatever the reason, it all lends to my workout DVD remaining un-played in its player while I snuggle deep into my warm covers, stealing sleepy peeks through one eye at the clock.

"Today's fortune, 'Tomorrow will be a productive day. Don't oversleep,' is a fortune I can work with, and I think it wants to work with me. I believe that energy flows where attention goes, and I am certain that when supported with good intention, the powerful combination can certainly lead to victory in a race with procrastination and mental defeat. Thanks for sharing your fortune, Matt!"
