Hamster Boosts Producivity With ‘Yes’ Button
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
As any procrastinator knows, even the simplest project can be delayed by indecisiveness. Knowing that full well, Carl the hamster tries to make things easier by investing in a “yes” button.
"It’s literally just a button that says ‘yes,’" says Paul Brandt, a friend. "He keeps it at his desk, and looks at it when he’s not sure about doing something. It’s really made all the difference."
Indeed, Carl is now more productive than ever.
"I haven’t sen him on his wheel in weeks," says Brandt. "I think he realized that it was only slowing him down, as ironic as that is. He’s written five blog posts, two short stories and a third of a screenplay - and that was just last week."
Things have picked up so much for Carl, he’s now considering the unthinkable.
"He told me he wants to delete his Facebook," says Brandt. "I don’t think he’s going to — at least, I hope he doesn’t. He’s already making me look bad."
