One of my worst weaknesses (yes, shocking that I have even one, right? LOL) all my life has been procrasti….. wait a second, let me install this hot new software first… OK… I am back… yes, as I was saying… procrastination. I am kidding about installing the software (or am I ? LOL).. but you get the idea.
The one flaw of my many which has let me… or, I should say, that I have let keep me from doing all that I need, want, aim, dream and hope to achieve in my life. I have probably only hit 1-2% of all that God gave my potential for, and it is a crying shame that it is so little because of the one weakness which I allow to get the better of me.
One way I have compensated for the many days of my life I was not productive is doing things in binges… Just like watching Netflix‘s The House Of Cards 13 episodes per season within 2-3 nights, I will sometimes go 24-36 hours on a productivity binge.
That is what I ended up doing last night when I took this selfie this morning. As Friday dawns over the Great South Bay outside my windows at home on Long Island, with merely 2 weeks left in what was one of the fastest flying years I can remember, I am taking time to reflect.
The good thing on such 24-36 hour days is that I will get a lot done, but the down side is that each time, each darn time, I kick myself about how this or that could have been done weeks, or even months ago. And, as many of you are all too familiar, I am sure, you too end up swearing off procrastination, “Never Again!” Until, of course, we do it the very next day or week.
We may not always overcome every weakness, but at least committing to fight it is a step forward. Not just a promise to make in new year’s resolutions, not just in promising ourselves to try to make tomorrow better, but to doing it Now!… Forget doing better tomorrow.. Make the rest of today, make the rest of this hour, even make this minute, a better use of time than the previous.
That is a fresh start without having to wait for a new year… That is a chance to begin anew even as our lives hurtle towards an end we all will reach sooner or later. No matter what time is left available to use, let us promise to make better use of it.
May God give us the strength to overcome our weaknesses and the tenderness to forgive ourselves and others for what we fail to achieve due to them. As long as we promise “I can and will do better” … we will!

(Click to see the interactive virtual reality experience.) I had stepped out of my then office on 52nd Street near Radio City Music Hall when I took shot this handheld panorama on an iPhone 4S.
Unfortunately even four years later, with PhotoShop CC 2017 the program fails to properly stitch actual Spherical panoramas.
Doing the upper view accurately would take too long so I hope you will just enjoy the street scene with some inaccurate processing above my name.

Some photographer posted in a FaceBook group about a model hurting their feelings by saying the photos they took (including location, hair, makeup) weren’t worth more than $10 each. I think a dozen people commented on that post.
As I clicked to post my response on the original post it disappeared. Maybe the original poster deleted their post. I’m just sharing my “comment” here for everyone, as there will always be unappreciative and ungrateful clients in every field.
I wrote: “Most people do not appreciate intangible expertise or subtle specialization or soft services nor put real monetary value on it.
They’ll pay a plumber $200 for fixing a $100 leaky toilet but will have a heart attack paying $300 for cloud & technology or management consulting advice they hit you up for regarding their million dollar business.
I haven’t seen the work the original poster did but assuming it was well done I’d say, go with the attitude, “Yes, the photos were worth just $10 each because the ungrateful model wasn’t worth more. 😋“

What!? HOW DARE THEY DO THAT?! A shameful image to see on Pakistan‘s Independence Day, August 14! People of Pakistan …
Why are pictures of the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and respected Miss. Fatima Jinnah, up SO HIGH?
They are almost too close to the greatest leaders on the Planet (Lollywood) that no one will remember in 50 years.
Send 1000 Jootian (rotting shoes) to the ass licking chamchas (sycophants) who put up the posters this way. Thanks to Shams Bin Niaz for the photo.
For my non-Pakistani friends, this is like political parties here putting up posters of Donald Trump/Mike Pence or Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine ABOVE posters of George Washington/Abraham Lincoln along city streets on the 4th of July.
Sadly, we are not far from that situation here in USA either. A few years ago Fox News had actually done a segment on George W. Bush (Yes, the moron retard Iraq War one) being THE GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER…
Seriously. It seems Pakistan has also reached that level of sickening political shamelessness. Or, wait…. is it the other way around?
