    11 – Putting It Off For Later

    11 – Putting It Off For Later

    Is procrastination really about being lazy or is it deeper than that? That's what we're discussing on this week's episode. We think you'll be surprised.

    WHAT WE SAID



    * We discussed an article Dave found in the New York Times, titled, "Why You Procrastinate (It Has Nothing To Do With Self-Control" and gave our thoughts on why we put things off until later.

    * Wendie says the main thing she puts off is house work.

    * Dave says the main thing he puts off is a particular kind of paperwork and mowing the lawn.

    * Listener (and Dave's sister-in-law) Frost says, "I do what I don't want to do first and them it's done! Otherwise I could put it off forever" and we discuss ways that we can combat procrastination.

    * Wendie references this Kristina Kusmic video

    * She also references this article from Rosa Elena

    * Kevin Leman's Birth Order Book was also brought up. We might talk about this in the future. (Not an affiliate link.)

    09 – Social Media Flings

    Recently, YouTube creator Casey Neistat, released a video about social media, friendships, and intimacy. We decided to share our opinion on the topic. How has social media changed the way we interact with people? What if you couldn't just walk away from Facebook or Twitter?

    06 – The Four-Year Pivot

    It's the second debut episode! Yeah!



    We started Because We Said about four years ago and only released 5 episodes. Why? Because apparently, parenting and recording a podcast is nigh impossible when you have a baby. It seems taking some time off and letting your kids grow up can actually enable you to start your show back up!

    In this episode...



    * We recap who we are and what the podcast is about

    * Wendie is making cookies

    * Dave is working for a podcast company

    * We bought a bidet



    * Here's the Tushy commercial we referenced





    * We address "Bill's" concern about his wife's "Christian duties"
