Energy Vacuums

“I WOULD FINISH THE VACUUMING IN 10 MINUTES AND LEAVE THE VACUUM TURNED ON, SUCKING ON MY VARIOUS BODY PARTS UNTIL THE TIME WAS UP.”

Do you have energy vacuums in your life? You know, those people who suck all the lifeblood out of you. The type of people who defeat you with inertia and unhelpful questions when you put your good ideas out there? When I was a young girl, my mother would make me vacuum the basement. I would do it in 10 minutes and she would say, “No, no, it takes 20.” So I would finish the vacuuming in 10 minutes and leave the vacuum turned on, sucking on my various body parts until the time was up. Nobody’s done that? No? Okay, the cheese stands alone.

Make. Work. Better.
