Introduction: Procrastinator's Work-From-Home-Guide
Working from home has become an important part of the Covid-19 era. The at-home worker can be productive while maintaining community safety. There are many tips to help make home-working efficient and more do-able.
But . . . what about the at-home procrastinator?
· Work—This means that you have a job of some sort.
· A Home—This means that you have a place to live, be it house, apartment, or Mongolian yurt.
· You—This means . . . . . you.
Organization is the key to working at home, and it can also help the procrastinator:
· What do you not want to do?
· What do you want to do instead?
These are important questions!
With a little effort and perseverance, it is possible to build your whole schedule around procrastination!
Step 1: Sleep
This is the foundation, the cornerstone of procrastination. Sleep gives you the energy you need to not do what you are supposed to do.
Step 2: Get Dressed?
If you are at home, who is to know if you are dressed or not? Don’t worry about it!
Step 3: Eat!
Of course! You need to eat. Isn’t breakfast the most important meal of the day?
Step 4: Watch TV
There are so many shows to watch, but avoid the news. It’s too depressing!
Step 5: Clean?
Nah, forget that one. It's too much like work!
Step 6: Social Networking
Find out what your friends aren't doing.
Step 7: Snack!
After seeing all the posts of what people are eating, you have to have something!
Step 8: Shop Online
Amazon, QVC, and all the rest are there, waiting to help you rebuild the economy. Do your part!
Step 9: Bake Like It’s Christmas!
You need to have something for future snacks!
Step 10: Games
Games stimulate the mind, right? You can stimulate your brain for hours on end!
Step 11: Eat
Of course! You need to eat. Isn’t lunch the most important meal of the middle of the day?
Step 12: Nap
After you eat, your body needs to rest so it can digest that meal. That’s what a boa constrictor does, doesn’t it?
Step 13: Snack
Napping is exhausting! Build up your energy!
Step 14: Watch Pet Videos
It’s a lift for your soul.
Step 15: Eat
Isn’t dinner the most important meal of the evening? Who needs to cook? Why do you think they invented home delivery?
Step 16: Watch Movies
There are so many options. Late-night channels, DVD, Blu-Ray, Streaming. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
Step 17: Snack
A reward for making it through another exhausting day of procrastination.
Step 18: Reading
A good book can replace any activities except eating, snacking, sleeping, or napping.
Step 19: Sleep
You’ve had a busy day. Now is the time for you to relax . . . so you’ll be ready to procrastinate again, tomorrow.
Step 20: ALTERNATE ACTIVITIES
Exercise—Lifting food to your mouth strengthens your arm and jaw muscles.
Learn a language—Talk to your cat. Dr. Dolittle could do it. Why not you?
