Is procrastination really about being lazy or is it deeper than that? That's what we're discussing on this week's episode. We think you'll be surprised. WHAT WE SAID We discussed an article Dave found in the New York Times, titled, "Why You Procrastinate (It Has Nothing To Do With Self-Control" and gave our thoughts on why we put things off until later. Wendie says the main thing she puts off is house work. Dave says the main thing he puts off is a particular kind of paperwork and mowing the lawn. Listener (and Dave's sister-in-law) Frost says, "I do what I don't want to do first and them it's done! Otherwise I could put it off forever" and we discuss ways that we can combat procrastination. Wendie references this Kristina Kusmic video She also references this article from Rosa Elena Kevin Leman's Birth Order Book was also brought up. We might talk about this in the future.

Recently, YouTube creator Casey Neistat, released a video about social media, friendships, and intimacy. We decided to share our opinion on the topic.
