2016 in Review: Videos for Procrastinating

The TDC is packed with helpful business information, tools, and advice, but we’re not always about business. Sometimes, especially Fridays, we like to share some fun videos that add a bit of distraction to your day (and yes, we’re aware that it’s counter-productive to the time management rules we often push). To finish off the “2016 in Review” series, we thought it would be fun to share some of the top videos from last year that have absolutely nothing to do with business and everything to do with procrastinating.

If you’re any sort of a geek, you’ll appreciate these videos

If you want a laugh, check out these videos

Please don’t waste your entire day on these, but a small break never hurts and in fact, can increase your productivity! We hope you enjoyed this “2016 in Review” series.  We’ll be back Monday with plenty of fresh content for everyone. Have fantastic Friday and a great weekend!
