» Best Procrastination Tip Ever Post written by Leo Babauta. Your first thought as you look at this article will be, “I’ll read this later.” But don’t. It’ll take you two minutes. I’ve written the book on ending procrastination, but I’ve since come up with a very simple technique for beating everyone’s favorite nemesis.

Most people would probably guess the actors’ bodies and/or genitals, especially if they’re talking about male porn viewers. Although this would seem to make intuitive sense, is it really the case?

Here are 25 ideas to get you started: 1. As you grow up, you see people achieve things like getting a degree, building a career, making money, getting married, having kids and so on.

Things to do on the internet when you're bored Finding Focus By Leo Babauta Do you ever have one of those days when you just can’t seem to find focus? When you fritter away your time on nothingnesses, distractions, wandering without really doing something important? Or one of those weeks? I have those days regularly. So how do we find focus?

You’ll have the urge to go check something. Do it for 10 minutes, however long you feel is pushing the boundaries of what’s comfortable for a little bit.
