Procrastination

Good morning from a frigid North Dakota.  Hoping you all had a very wonderful and safe Christmas and New Year’s.  Today I’m going to talk about procrastination and how it’s not always a very good decision. I’ve been selling Security, Surveillance, and Home Automation systems for almost 8 years now.  I’ve seen all the positive results that come from letting technology help us in our everyday lives.  Anywhere from helping the rancher avoid losing new born calves to keeping potential burglars from breaking into some of our finest eating and drinking establishments. I have installed cameras in my barn and around my yard and many times have reaped the benefits from having an extra set of eyes when I couldn’t be around.  I’ve used them during lambing, calving, and for seeing what exactly happened to the package that FedEx said they delivered to my house. Here’s where the problem comes in.  For years now I’ve pushed off installing the home security system in my house.  I’ve been as far as having the order in the system and ready to go, just to decide that I really didn’t need it quite yet.  After all, for years we didn’t even know where our house keys were lol.  Well, it finally caught up to me last week.  I came home from work and could swear that I heard water dripping from somewhere.  After opening the door to our basement, I found where the “dripping” sound was coming from.  Much to my dismay I was staring at 10” of water in my basement.  I’m sure you can all imagine how much fun it...
