How to Procrastinate. Literally.


Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Procrastinators are known as the future leaders of the world. TIME reports that it’s genetic. You either have it or you don’t. But it doesn’t mean it cannot be learnt. Are you doing procrastination right? Do you know how to make the most of procrastination? Here are five golden tips.

How to ProcrastinateSync your email accounts to ALL your mobile devices using the IMAP protocol. That way, you have to read the same email twice, thrice and many many times. By then, the crux of the message will sink in.

Take a cue from Glee kids and Disney characters. A super-important task that requires my urgent attention? Not before I break into an autobiographical song and interpretive dance about this super-important task that requires my urgent attention, madam.

Make good your word and clear your backlog. That means finally watching all the YouTube videos that you added to the ‘Watch Later’ playlist (be it accidentally or not).

Rewind your clock by two hours. That way you can meet all your deadlines and still have time for play.

Always, always sweat the small stuff.  Your dog could choke on that mote of dust and die. That rash could be flesh-eating bacteria, so take a two-hour bath, get scrubbing and get really clean.
