Celebrate anniversaries.

I can’t think of a better way to do nothing than trying to remember what happened exactly one year ago.

For example, this blog is one year old. So, if you were to give it the traditional gift, it would be paper.

On the day of the year that is special to you, you should try to do nothing new. Just remember what you did last year (or whenever) and think about that. It’s a day of reverence — a day to reflect on the past. In other words, it’s a free pass.

“I should do something?! Are you crazy? Don’t you know what day it is? It’s the anniversary of both the founding of Reno, Nevada and the first publishing of Dianetics! How dare you?”

All of this gives me an idea, and it’s just crazy enough to work! If you can manage to do one very important thing every day for a year, then you can just celebrate 365 anniversaries in a row*, and never do anything ever again. It’s a lot of work to start, but what a pay-off!

* Yes, I know some years have 366, but on Leap Day you could just celebrate the fact that it’s Leap Day.
