I've heard it said that if you're bored it's because you don't have enough to do. However, I have a a bit of a problem with that statement. I have plenty to do...I just can't do it NOW. Why is it that you are never in the right place at the right time to do what needs to be done?
Here I am at work...during the slowest winter I've known since being at the resort. With multiple variables contributing to our lack of guests, it often leaves me wondering how to fill the eight hours of the day (NOTE: I have almost exhausted the ideas from my previous blog entitled 'Top 10 Ways to Appear Busy at Work...'). Blogging still allows me to "sound busy", but I find my mind wandering to all of the things that I COULD be doing...if I was someplace else.
I need to mop my floor...I'd like to finish making my venison jerky (so I can return the jerky maker and have my counter top back)...I'd like to practice my guitar...it would be fun to paint a bit...I could really dig a nap right now. I have a GREAT list of things I could do!! But here I am, trapped behind a desk, wondering if I'm really bored, or just currently misplaced. I wouldn't be bored...if I was someplace else.
Sometimes I wonder, "If I was someplace else would I think about all of the things I could be doing at work?" Um...no. Well, I was just wondering.
I guess I could add a #11 to my list of ways to stay busy at work: #11 - make a list of the things you need to do when you get home...
I suppose I should "get to work".
