1) At least one blog post a week. I'm told that the posts I only write in my head don't count, so I'll even post them here.

2) Get to work at reasonable hours. Or, actually, leave for work at reasonable hours, since that leaves less room for weaseling about subway delays. So: leave home by 9:05 at least once a week, and later than 9:35 no more than once a week.

3) Stop wasting time reading stupid comments on new articles. And especially stop wasting time looking for the sane people who must be out there somewhere refuting them, because they're never really there.

The last one was prompted by an article about Ron Paul being left out of the Fox News-hosted Republican debate, though I can't find it now. A few pages down in the comments, someone pointed out that you can never trust polls, because many of them are commissioned by the same big media corporations that report them!

Just thinking about it makes my head hurt.

I read comments on people's LJ entries, but pretty much not anywhere else. (Especially not on youtube).

One thing I need to do is wait until I've done everything else in a day before reading LJ, but that hasn't happened yet (she says at 8 AM). It sometimes takes up an hour or two a day.

Hurr. Google Reader cut off this post right after "stop reading," and I was like, "Why would John want to stop reading? He can't read so much that he considers it wasting time!" But, yes, avoiding stupid people is a good way to maintain sanity.
