Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today

I am a cliché addict. To me, cliché’s are camp and annoyingly on the nose, or nonsensical.

For example:

  1. “Many hands make light work”. Sounds more like a Chinese proverb or fortune cookie, but whatever.
  2. “As horny as a three balled tomcat”. Since when are deformities a gateway to an  increased sexual appetite?  Again, nonsensical.

Today’s cliché, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”, a simplistic reminder that life is short. No shit. I’m oblivious to the the  killer fly epidemic? Or being in a concrete dispenser’s line of fire? Or a tightly wound bodice on a dress?!

This cliché is such a procrastination buzz kill. No, it invalidates the vitality of procrastination. As if procrastinating isn’t a worthy endeavor. Denial, self-loathing, guilt and being trapped inside one’s head are time consuming art forms. To categorize them as without merit is a slap in the face.

My spin on this cliché: Don’t be all you can be in a day. Give it a week, at least.

    “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

    Really? You mean that if I save a penny then I have a penny? WOW! Who wouldathunk it? Brilliant analysis!
