“The problem with doing nothing is not knowing when you are finished.”
Hey! Here is the first list I have compiled:
Things to do when there is no electricity (assuming all electronic devices are dead too, obviously..)
….but it’s day time
- Go for a run outside
- Pack and go on a road trip
- Open your closet door and go to Narnia
- Read a book
- Rearrange your room
- Create a home theatre (literally being the actors to your own plays)
- Play an instrument
- Write a book (longhand)
- Roll around the house
- Slide down the stairs
- Sing at the top of your lungs
- Quickly eat all the food in your fridge, because it might go bad while the electricity is out and it gets all warm
….and it’s dark
- Read a book using a candle
- Play hide and seek in the dark
- Feel your way through the dark to your closet, then go to Narnia
- Make a bonfire
- Walk around your house with a candle in your hand (like they used to do in the olden times)
- Eat lots of chocolate (assuming you can find it in the dark)
- Wear all your hats and walk around like that (don’t worry: nobody can see you!)
- Sneak up on someone else and tickle them, then sneak away again when they try to tickle you back
- Create a radio show with everyone present
- Draw a painting, then look at it with a candle
- Work out (advantage: nobody can see you sweat)
- Make tea, then wonder why it tastes so horrible (oh, you forgot to add the water..?)
- Decorate your house
Hope I managed to entertain you!
“Don’t get it right – get it WRITTEN.”
I just saw this on Joseph Finder’s website here and I really want one now!
There are hourglasses that run for thirty or sixty minutes and he uses them as a productivity tool: he will keep writing until the sand has run out!
Does anyone else use this as a productivity tool?
I really want one! I’ve checked Amazon and Ebay, but the nice ones that run 60 minutes are all fifty+ bucks.. Now I must decide whether it’s worth that much or not…! I think it would be cool for writing sprints, though perhaps a ten minute one would suffice for that..
