"They" say . . . the Science of Hot Weather

"They" say: it isn't the heat, it's the humidity. I don't know about you readers (and you three know who you are....) but for me, "They" are wrong - it's the heat. When it's hot, I'll do what I have to do, but I do it so much more *s l o w l y*. There's a certain outdoor temperature, typically in the mid-80s, above which all ambition simply ceases. I will do only what I have to do. In scientific terms, this is known as the "DO" point.

And I can safely say that I get everything done that I want to do, as well. The trick to getting done everything you want to get done is simple:

want less

Lower your expectations. So, when I want to do nothing because it's so @$% hot, well... nothing's exactly what I set out to do, and by golly I git 'er done, too.
