While trolling my way through the Internet, checking e-mails, shuffling through Twitter, GChatting, posting on Facebook, and checking my updated karma on Reddit, I found this article on CNN.
It’s a website called “Do Nothing for 2 Minutes,” and it has instantly become one of the hardest challenges on the Web. The creator himself has given us numbers to prove it.
Average time on site so far is 58 seconds. C’mon peeps you can do better!
But, according to a HuffPo poll, maybe they just can’t. About 22 percent of people admitted they clicked away before the time was up.
Tew told TechCrunch he believes social networking is to blame. He says people are so wired that they’re unable to enjoy the sight of a sunset and the sound of relaxing ocean waves without feeling the urge to stray. (Even the site’s fans can’t resist clicking away: the site already has over 200,000 “likes” on Facebook.)
So my mission for you is to break away from the daily grind and relax. See if you can’t take two minutes out of the workday and give the site a try. (We know you’re already taking breaks for Facebook.)
And if you can’t do that, then there’s always the YouTube video of grass growing.
