It’s been midterm season for a few weeks now (and it will be until December, judging by what I’ve heard about some classes), and I know I’m starting to lose the studious edge I had back at the beginning of the semester. I don’t think I’m alone in this. Lots of students are finding themselves on three different subreddits at once, with BlogDailyHerald (of course) and last night’s episode of The Daily Show up on other tabs. Adderall is a no-go, so how are you supposed to keep focused? You could, of course, pay someone to literally slap you whenever you procrastinate. Maneesh Sethi has done just that, and at $8/hour too! He says his productivity shot up from 36% to 98% once he had a dedicated
face-slapper focus consultant.
And no, we are not missing the irony in talking about this in a time-waster.
