What to do when you have nothing to do.

This week Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from Lyndsey Yates. Lyndsey is a graphic designer and founder of Nine Dots Creative, she says:

“Today, after a crackers boombackers (my phrase, I just made that up) week, I have nothing to do. Well, nothing pressing anyway. So far I’ve spent 2 hours faffing about on my laptop (AKA browsing Facebook and looking on eBay).

Now the guilt is starting to set in that I’m not being productive enough. I would actually LIKE to do something with my day — it’s not all fuelled by guilt — but I think I’m actually now paralysed by possibility. All the things I’ve been meaning to get round to are just swimming around my head!

Tell me fellow DIFTKers, how do you deal with these days? I feel like I’ve been cycling down a hill really fast and I’ve stopped too quickly and gone over the handlebars.”

Take note dear listener! We might swear a bit. This one’s for the parents. To be enjoyed at your desk or once the kiddos are in bed.

What would your advice be?
