Harley Hahn's List of 25 Things to Do
When You Should Be Working

Are you using the Interent at work? Good for you.

But have you ever stopped to wonder why "they" pay for your Internet connection? Have you ever been tempted to ask the people in charge why they spent all that money just to connect you to the Internet?

Ask them. They'll talk about "communication", or the importance of email, or how everything is becoming electronic and the future of business lies on the Web.


Just nod your head gravely, and wait till they go back into a meeting.

Although the people in charge don't realize it, the real reason your company connected you to the Internet has nothing to do with money.

Your company connected you to the Internet because human beings have a biological need to connect to one another.

Who cares if you are at work? You are joining the largest gathering of people in the history of mankind.

So remember, as you enjoy this list of 25 resources, you are not goofing off.

You are fulfilling your biological destiny.
