Why do I lie to myself and think that I’ll be able to get any type of work done at home? On a weekend? On a day off?
I’ve been playing this game for the past year or so ever since working at SJSU. It makes me wonder a few things about my productivity as a working professional:
– Am I not doing enough work when I’m actually AT work?
– Am I constantly getting side-tracked by emails, Gchat, random Google searches, and cubicle conversations revolving around Bravo TV shows?
– Am I getting too burnt out from other obligations and voluntary commitments that I end up using any free time doing brainless activity?
Is this really what the life of a working woman/man/professional is like? No wonder “happy hour” was invented. How do you get through the week? What gives you motivation to get beyond the daily grind?
