Procrastination.............

Have you ever walked into your office or restaurant and seen a disaster waiting to happen?Not in your restaurant, but in a messy office? I'm very blessed that the three awesome beings I manage along side with, are super organized! My GM walked in yesterday, complimented me on everything in the restaurant ( through ine check, FOH in check, BOH in check), but yea the office looked like Tornado Cindi had a touchdown! It's like when ^&*% hits the fan, you take of all but you and your office!!I kinda wish a camera was in the office, cause I work with the 2nd funniest man in Thomas and King ( CHIP), Andy of course is #1, and I kinda wish we could do a stand off duel with the two of them.ANYWHO.........I got a great forward for all of us to put in our offices about PROCRASTINATION! I'm emailing my restaurant a copy!! ENJOY!!Procrastinator's Creed* 1. I believe that if anything is worth doing, it would have been done already.* 2.
