Focus! I need some.

August 24, 2011

So today happened. Err, it is happening. It’s been one of those days where I woke up energized to do big things, to really move the needle, but I’m so motivated that I don’t have a focus. You know what I mean? You do know what I mean, right? (Click here if you can’t see […]
