Filling up paid surveys is without a doubt one of the easiest and least brain-taxing methods of making money. However, because it involves almost no thinking whatsoever, it can, in time, become mind numbingly boring and completely tedious.
Assuming you’re just filling in one survey a day, or every couple of days, you probably wouldn’t notice this at all. But if you decide to get into paid surveys on a more regular basis and really begin to profit well from them, you’ll gradually find that you’re going to feel the tedium kick in.
To be completely honest, this is one of the biggest downsides of using paid surveys as a regular tool of profit. Simply put there is no easy way out of this conundrum. If you happen to have more ‘interesting’ surveys, you could do those in between your other, more ‘tedious’ surveys instead, but this is really just a temporary fix.
In the long run, you’re going to find that you’ll end up having to complete a number of boring surveys in a row at some point or other, and when that happens the tedium is bound to kick in once again.
One of the best ways to prevent yourself from falling victim to this problem is to take regular short breaks. Never sit down for more than half an hour at a time while just filling out surveys. Take five or ten minute breaks in between and go do something else! Walk in the yard, shoot a few hoops of basketball, whatever tickles your fancy really.
So long as you’re able to take a break from your surveys regularly, you’ll find that you’re less likely to suffer from the boredom that creeps in.
Also, if you happen to be registered to one of those paid survey databases, you probably will also have access to a number of other ways to make money, such as by eating or shopping. Why not try one of those for a change of pace?
Or why not try something completely different?
Honestly, the choice is yours, but what is important is that you find some ways of ensuring that you’re not stuck doing surveys on a continuous basis, but rather that you find some way to break the monotony and take your mind off your surveys for a while.
Later, you can get back to them and pick up where you left off!
After all, paid surveys are incredibly flexible in nature, so why not take advantage of it for as long as you can. Fit in other things within and around your survey times and you’ll find that you’re less likely to go absolutely crazy from the tediousness of filling in survey after survey after survey.
In fact, another great idea is to use something like RoboForm to help complete some parts of your survey automatically.
Whatever you do, be sure to take care of it somehow, before it becomes too big a problem to handle!
