5 Ways to Happily Mismanage Your Life

The world is filled with feel-good, optimistic approaches on how to establish a good lifestyle and improve yourself. This is not one of those … welcome to the dark side.
Whether you are student, working in a office or managing your personal life, below are some of the best ways to mismanage your life and be totally happy doing it.
1. Distract yourself
Internet and smart phones have brought the power to transform the world anytime and from anywhere into your palm.  If you are comfortable in your job/relationship already, you may want to seriously consider distracting yourself with as many gadgets and apps.  After all, there will always be another job tomorrow somewhere, but the latest viral news/post will be lost in the landfill of internet any minute.  Focus is overrated, go ahead and refresh.
2. Overspend your earnings
Saving for retirement is great only if you want all the resources at a time when you are physically incapable of enjoying anything those resources could buy.  The experience of enjoying your dream vacations in your youth in worth a lifetime of debt.  Go ahead and take that vacation on credit.
3. Aim for instant gratification
Successful people are able to deal with contradiction by doing what is necessary to resolve issues or, at least, neutralize it.  If you are turned off by the significant planning and thoughtful execution of tasks this mandates, then give into temptation and relish short-term rewards at the expense of long-term benefits.  No one knows what surprises tomorrow will bring.  Go ahead and enjoy everything now.
4. Become complacent
If you do not like your views to be challenged, then going to school is the best way to waste valuable years of your life.  Technology is evolving faster than humans.  Being unwilling to learn new skills may be the quickest way to make yourself worthless in the modern economy.  Even in personal relationships, unwillingness to keep the spark alive is the sure shot way to a long singles lifestyle. Put on those pajamas and get too comfortable.
5. Wreck personal connections
If you know that you are the better half, then separating yourself from the pesky human connections grounding you to reality may be your most gratifying decision.  Free your unique ideas from the grind of thoughtful collaborative team work.  Who needs allies when you are perfect … make yourself great again!
