Today's Email

Hey John,

Per this weeks eMailbag Monday, you discussed your loving (or not so loving) relationship with the sultry mistress we call procrastination.

My advice is unsolicited, I know, but I will start off by saying this: I have been rooting for Dan and you for (holy shit) over five years now, and chipped in my support for you guys via Mario Propaganda posters as a thank you for reaching your 100th 2 Chimps episode. That doesn't mean you owe listening to my advice, because you don't owe me shit. I bring that up only to establish that I really do care about your guy's success, as your unconventional work-life choices have continued to be an inspiration for me.

With that said, I'll go onto being an asshole ;)

I believe that WGG's growth and future success will be directly tied to the effort and energy you put into it. Procrastination, though a lovely bedfellow (literally), is a bitch when it comes to getting shit done and paying the bills.

Unfortunately I don't have a cure-all for procrastination, but my in personal experience procrastination can be best defeated with accountability. It is a shitty strain to put on a relationship, but having someone who is willing to shoot it straight and tell me to buckle-the-fuck-up is sometimes quite helpful.

FWIW, I have your snapchat username, and would be happy to shoot a quick video at you each day (or whenever I think of it) telling you to stop being an asshole and to get to work. You would be welcome to shoot me one back expressing similar berating sentiment if you so chose. If you would be interested in joining in that "partnership", then say it and it will be done.

Lastly, my experience is also that once I stop being a bitch and get to work, I am always thankful I did so in retrospect. Be it working out, literary pursuits, continued education, or even taking the dog out; I'm always thankful that I did so as soon as I overcome the initial inertia of procrastination.

So there you have it. Best of luck to Dan and you as you continue onward.
Game on,
Sean

P.S. I won't be at all hurt if you are not interested in my offer to call you an asshole everyday. Just throwing it out there since it would cost me about 30 seconds a day, and if it could be of a more substantial benefit to you, then it'd be worth it on my end.

heh I'm a poorly motivated college student (in chemical engineering, of all things to be a lazy bum majoring in), so I'm good friends with procrastinatory habits, and it really bit me in the ass last semester.

also, quick question: how large do you think WGG will have to get before you consider hiring on additional staff?

You can do it man! Money is the motivator! Get the money power and women and do different drinking games. Like slam a shot every time you fuck up. You guys are funny as shit sometimes. Get crazy.
