Hot Potato

Home / Creative / Hot Potato

Ever play that game? Take a fresh baked potato, hot out of the oven, and pass it around a circle without dropping it. You can’t hold it long–it burns! And you can’t drop it or you lose.

Pocket that metaphor. You have things to do today. You can’t take too long–it will burn your day away–but you can’t drop it. What do you do? You clear that task immediately and efficiently. Don’t procrastinate. Think less about it. Stop trying to perfect your throw. Just get it done as if your life depends on it.
