The internet is awesome. Every day brings countless new opportunities for killing time and having fun doing it right to our fingertips. But remember, not everything has to be a complete waste of time! Here are five ways to procrastinate right now that your future self may actually thank you for!
- Write a letter to your future self. FutureMe.org is a magnificent. You write a letter, pick a date for it to be delivered and there it goes! When I was 16 I wrote one to my 18 year old self and when I got it, I had long forgotten about the site, but now had this beautiful note written for myself, by myself. It sounds ridiculous but just try it! I swear your future self will thank you for it. And yes, you’re all free to e-mail me too 🙂
- Figure out if you have what it takes to be a great leader. The good people of Forbes have brought us another great story on how to succeed no matter what job or industry you’re in. In addition to doing the self-test to see if you have what it takes, be sure to take note of their five important principles to live and work by in order to exude leadership without really trying!

- Get a free education for life via Pinterest. I know, I know. Pinterest? Really? In all seriousness though, I can’t tell you how many things I’ve learned just going on Pinterest and reading through the picture links.

So if you don’t already have an account, it’s about time you made one and started learning beyond the classroom about things you actually care about.
- Earth Month Tips for the Home. As if I needed another reason to love Whole Foods, but here it is: a list of easy things you should be doing to stay green at home.
