  • You are watching this video... well, let's be real with each other: you should probably be doing something else.


  • Maybe you're at work, maybe you should be studying.


  • Perhaps you should be writing that thing you've been writing, and you should definitely be paying more attention to your site.


  • But the good news is that procrastinating by watching certain YouTube videos, it can be classified as effective procrastination.

    但好消息是,如果你的耍廢方式是觀看特定種類的 YouTube 影片,這其實算是「有效率地拖延時間方式」。

  • Actually, there's a number of ways you can effectively waste time that lead to a boost in problem-solving, productivity, and creativity.


  • Scientific research is truly beautiful!


  • Researchers at the University of Melbourne have published a number of studies on workplace internet leisure browsing.


  • I excel at workplace internet leisure browsing.


  • In one study, researchers found that workers who surf the internet for fun at work within a reasonable time limit-- say less than 20% of their total time in the office-- are 9% more productive than those who don't.

    在一份研究中,研究者發現,工作時在一定合理的時間範圍內為了消遣而上網的員工——假設是少於總工時的 20%——他們的生產力比沒有消遣的員工高 9%。

  • From this and follow up studies, researchers argue that workplace internet leisure browsing is an unobtrusive interruption which enables restoration of mental capacity, and fosters feelings of autonomy.


  • Another study out of the University of California titled "Inspired by distraction" found when participants did an undemanding task, compared to doing a demanding task, resting, or having no break, it led to substantial improvements in performance on a problem they'd encountered before.


  • Researchers concluded that allowing the mind to wander through simple tasks can boost creative problem-solving.


  • Originally, scientists thought mind wandering allowed the brain to rest and returning to the problem well rested was all you would need to solve it.


  • Now some scientists think that mind wandering might distract you from your perceived obstacles.


  • And brain imaging research shows that while you're doing another simple task, the brain regions responsible for decision-making keep working.


  • Your brain is unconsciously process the information related to your decisions.


  • I think that's pretty cool!


  • And there are lots of ways to distract yourself and procrastinate.


  • I know more than anyone. But there are ways to do it effectively.


  • First up, make sure a simple task is just that, simple, and not related to a problem you're trying to solve.


  • So don't do logic puzzles when you're trying to solve a math problem.


  • Instead watch goat videos on YouTube.

  • Next, avoid activities that are ego-driven: meaning checking Facebook, Instagram, and generally distractions filled with friends, family, and other personalities you're familiar with.


  • And if you're not trying to problem-solve, but just really have a problem with procrastinating, you can use a strategy called implementation intention, where you make a list of all the things you need to do.


  • And if you're distracted or taking a break then do them one by one.


  • Also, you could just go for a walk.


  • Lots of studies show that people who go on daily walks score higher on tests that measure creative thinking and productivity.


  • Of course, putting these findings into practice effectively all depends on you finding the right balance of work and downtime activities that are almost useless.


  • So the next time you're procrastinating, keep in mind that it can have benefits.


  • Try un-focusing your attention.


  • Spending short periods of time doing simple tasks can have a positive effect on your decision-making and creative thinking abilities, just like watching this video of the Sun in ultra HD.


  • It's a great way to procrastinate!
