happy friday!

99% Every so often I take some time to read through the creative/motivational website, 99%. Their name derives from Thomas Edison's famous quote “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” and it couldn't be more true. How often (and quickly) do you get ideas for projects, businesses, inventions, or even recipes that never even see the daylight?

I love this website because it re-rejuvenates and inspires me to keep at whatever creative endeavors I have floating around in my head. More importantly, it teaches me how to be more focused and productive so that I can at least make some of those ideas happen!

I've got work cut out for me this weekend with my latest project but I'm ready to get'er done after reading these three articles. If you're easily distracted like me and want to get your work/projects moving - even if it's making your own Christmas decorations by Thanksgiving -  you might want to click through for a read too. Go ahead, it' okay - these don't count as distractions :)
