A couple days ago I stumbled upon a really cool site called Lost in Cubes.
If you go check it out, you will find all sorts of info that deals with success in the workplace and achieving your full potential.
Worth the read.
We at the TOP 7 promote a productive workplace.
However it is also fun to make fun of those who are…. SLACKERS.
Q: Why doesn’t a government employee look out the window in the morning?
A: If he did, he would not have anything to do in the afternoon.
Work should be a place of productivity. However, there are always times when this is not the case.
If you find that you are too busy at work or just simply need some time for yourself, we at THE TOP 7 are here to help.
Here are 7 ways to Waste Time at Work
1. Computer Solitaire
Addictive time waster. Just remember the ALT-TAB keys. If your boss walks in you will certainly need it.
2. Coffee Break
I know that it is supposed to be 15 minutes long, but sometimes a person needs to engage in deep meaningful conversations. Once I was in a deep conversation about who would be the next person voted off on “Survivor”. Time well spent.
3. Water Break
I would have refilled my water bottle during my coffee break, but I ran out of time. I am sure everyone would understand.
4. Bathroom Break
When you got to go, you got to go. Reading material or iTouch are optional.
5. Surfing the Net
The players stats for each of the New York Yankees is “Market Research”.
6. Paperclip Organizing
If I don’t pre-organize my paperclips, they get tangled and I lose precious nanoseconds later on. It all about thinking ahead.
7. Creating a Top 7 List
When else will it get done?
*FYI: The Top 7 know all about government workers and the reputation they have. We are either in the industry now or have been in the past.
How do you waste time at your work? Would you be willing to share?
