You need a 3-minute vacation. You feel like eating a cookie. There’s a wrong way and a right way to have a 3-minute cookie vacation. The wrong way: eat it while working. The right way: Go out and buy a box of cookies (if desperate, buy 5 packages out of the vending machine, but you have to be really desperate). Announce to a few co-workers that you’re having a 3-minute staff retreat at your cubicle in 15 minutes. Pass out the cookies and talk (no working!) while you all enjoy the cookies.
