4. Read a Book

Too many of us can’t even remember the last time we were enthralled by a book. You know — one with an actual cover and pages that you can store on a shelf? With everything available online these days, including pretty much everything related to looking for finding your next job, it’s easy to waste an entire day surfing the Internet.

To combat this all-too-common obstacle, allow yourself a small amount of time (15-30 minutes) to read something that (gasp) isn’t on a computer screen. When you’re finished, you’ll see how much easier it is to focus on the task at hand instead of checking out all those gossip sites, LOLcats and Facebook games waste the days of countless job seekers.
