People always tell me, "Do your best!" But sometimes I'd rather goof off.

  1. We all need a rest sometime. Getting re-charged often leads us to be better at what we do.

    And 'goofing off' sometimes leads to new ideas.

  2. 'Goofing off' is what I consider creative time. Creative time is work in a different form. It is time when the mind is free to work on things it wants to. Sometimes the mind calls a time-out from the days work and 'goofs off' for a few moments or longer until rudely interrupted by the real world.

  5. I do my best on the things that I set as high priorities. However, many things are lower on my list than having good time is. ;)

  6. Even the mind needs a time off every now and then..
    Sometimes we need to let go of our sanity to keep it

  8. I used to be such a perfectionist in all I did when I was younger. Now I'm a 'selective' perfectionist. When it comes to work, it's got to be grade A. As for the dishes in the sink? Meh. Not such a concern anymore.

  10. Thinking I do my best when goofing off, Marty.
    However, that statement may only be a way to justify being a right-brained dreamer who has some qualities of ADD, and/or high functioning autism, or whatever they call it now, ha ha.

  13. If you are good at goofing off, then you should be alright. Don't be a mediocre goofoff... be an excellent goofoff!

    I now have the time to wander through life exploring as many experiences as I can try. I'm busier in a more enjoyable way than when I was working. Less money but more time, energy and satisfaction; a more meaningful life.
    See my blog "REFLECTIONS" where I share some random thoughts,ideas...

  16. I hear daydreaming is good for the brain - and the soul. "That's my story and I'm sticking to it!" :) Have a great New Year - and may it find you happy, healthy and prosperous!

  17. I cant imagine where I would have been if I had not goofed up enough... I have stumbled upon so many new things every time I was clumsy :)

  18. I heard this one years ago:
    "I'll do my best."
    "Don't do your best. Do the best a better person would do.."
    So unforgiving! And goof off time is essential. How many mathematics and astro-physics geniuses had their "AHA" moments while taking a long bath, or a walk, or getting on a bus.
