Two hippos are sitting in a bath …

One says to the other “why are you so fat”. And the other says “don’t be so hippo-critical.

Someone told me this joke, and I wrote it down to tell my kids.

And now it’s been sitting in my inbox, distracting me from work, for months.

It’s important to have a place to stick thoughts, ideas, and notes so they don’t distract you from today’s works. You need a place where you know it will be safe to forget about it (for now).  I recommend Evernote, but anything will do. 

You need a clean place to think big new thoughts. Your next great idea is buried — weed the mental garden to give it room to grow.
