Good intentions, the internet, social media accounts (the more the better), and a perfectionist mindset. This recipe can only be made when you've run out of self-discipline.
Additional recipe details
Recipe difficulty: easy Cook time: as long as possible Servings: unlimited until your deadline forces you to get your act together
Step 1: In a large bowl, add five cups of good intentions
Sit down to do your work, open your laptop and make a genuine effort to be productive.
Step 2: Add a cup of internet and a teaspoon of social media
3 minutes into working is a great time for a break. Click on anything and everything that catches your eye - your friend from summer camp's Facebook photo album, the latest Carpool Karaoke...
Step 3: Following your mind's natural flow, mix ingredients
Text your friend a link to Adele's carpool karaoke, see unanswered FB messages & answer those, be reminded of an awesome Wait But Why article about being insufferable on Facebook & reread that
Step 4: Add a dash of resolve to work again, only to realize
Your ideas are terrible, the assignment is impossible, and no matter how much work you put into it it'll never improve. Might as well just give up now and rewatch your favorite Netflix series.
Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4 as desired
Step 6: Stop mixing when you see a DEADLINE APPROACHING!
Snap out of that internet-surfing haze and GET TO WORK
