Many people are bored at work. They while away the hours pushing email around. Parkinson’s Law states that work will expand to fit the time allotted, and you have until 5pm daily. A lazy day is fine now and then but a challenge is important otherwise you will be miserable. 

 

You can now get lectures from some of the best Universities online for free – so take advantage of this and listen on your commute or plugged in while doing mundanity at work. 

Oxford University podcasts are on many topics: try History of Art for some culture, Interviews with philosophers for depth, Quantum Nanotechnology to blow your mind, Steve Wozniak speaks to the business school for netsavvy tech, or try listening to an English tutorial at my alma mater, Mansfield College (pictured)
