Hi there, guys and dolls! Hoping you are all healthy and cocooning away. Stay safe and wash, wash, wash your hands (along with that man right out of your hair, but that may be another post…).
So being that this is workday Wednesday and many of you are at home, er, working…. or sitting all alone in a little corner of your big office, now is the time for yours truly to provide some tips on how to have a productive workday, all on your very lonesome!
First of all, get that all important first cup of coffee poured! Now of course, being on your own, you will be the one making it, so do allot a good 15 minutes of your work time to a. find the coffee, b. wait for it to percolate (no instant Sanka for you!), and c. trade barbs and gossip with your co-… oh, right. Working solo. So a good 15 minutes then to talk to yourself.
With that accomplished, it’s time to catch up on the news. Current events are all important in this modern world! It’s how the movers and shakers make things happen, don’t you know. Of course, that’ll take you til coffee break, so you deserve a snack and a stroll around, get the pins moving.
Now depending on your work, it may require you to transcribe, read, sort, etc some confidential (let’s face it salacious and juicy information that is fascinating but none of your business). A model employee would just take care of it lickety-split, but hey, you’re on your own and some of this stuff is good. For instance, how did that big boss afford the ‘business trip’ with his secretary, and exactly whom has dubious charges pending. That sort of stuff. Time to be a conscientious employee and read every line, just to make sure you’re handling the information correctly!
Wow! Is it already lunch? Pretty sure it’ll take a good two hours to prepare and eat, as well as drink the well earned imbibing beverage. Don’t want to rush such things, do we?
Oh, and dang! Did you chip your nail polish on those nasty paper files earlier? Must fix that after coffee break that’s due now. Make sure the varnish is perfectly dry. Don’t want to get any on the business correspondence, do we?
And just like that, your day and nothing is done. Way to go, shoe in for Employee of the Month!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more posts. And don’t forget to give my Poppy Cove Mysteries a try if you haven’t already.
