How much procrastinating is too much?
Sat in the office on a Friday afternoon whilst it hammers down with rain, I did start to wonder – how much procrastinating at work is normal? I must admit, today I have discussed the weather, what I had for dinner and of course Eastenders. I strongly believe that as a nation we all spend at least 10% of the day, making a cup of tea or looking on Linked In or choosing to visit our colleagues at a different desk / room rather as it allows you to “switch off” for a moment. However the question proposed is when does it stop being normal and run of the mill and when does it became a sure sign that you are fed up of your job!
Are you procrastinating because quite frankly, you feel bored, unchallenged and frustrated in your position? Is it a case that you are unfulfilled and wasting time, distracting yourself and others is much easier and more interesting that doing the work in front of you? Or is it a case that you don’t actually have enough to do? Either way you look at it, it’s not a great sign of your current employment. It may well be a sign that you aren’t being invested in enough or that you simply aren’t happy.
