GREAT WAYS TO AVOID STARTING YOUR WORK DAY
- •Clean up your deskHow can you work if you don't have an organized work environment? If you're like me your desk is a disaster area at the end of the day every day, so you can do this one every morning.
- •Social mediaBonus points if you manage your work Twitter/Facebook/Instagram accounts and can pretend this is actual work.
- •Drink lots of coffeeEven (especially?) the most demanding of bosses will understand that you can't be expected to do productive work without caffeine.
- •Engage someone more important than you in conversation"I didn't make it to my desk until 10:15! Fred was talking to me about those really interesting things that will most certainly affect our continued employment." "Oh! Well, what did he say? Tell me."
- •Make a list about how to avoid working.
