“When was the last time you really goofed off?

All the dictionary definitions of this phrase are negative: “shirking work or responsibility,” “to waste time.” But to me, goofing off simply means activity with no redeeming value—it satisfies no “should.” You do it without excuses; there is no justification. Goofing off like this is harder than it sounds because it means acting without a goal, without thought of gain. Doing your cardio workout doesn’t count.” Sallie Tisdale

How long do you dare to just goof off today? Start by reading Sallie’s article and then you have a life of goofing off ahead of you 🙂
