I just read this somewhere else. I think it had to do with budgeting or something, but as the author stated, it’s certainly a multipurpose issue.
When you commit to something — exercising more, eating better, saving money — it is challenging to stick with it. Whole forests have been felled in the name of books meant to help us stick to self-improvement promises.
Every time I want to procrastinate about something, I shall now say to myself, “You’re killing a tree.”
I’m not necessarily the biggest tree-hugger that ever lived, but guilt? Guilt, I can do.
