How much can youse get away with tossing it off at work and how much do you do it?

 

I basically created my own roles as it is now, so nobody except my boss knows the specifics of what I do and he seems happy as a pig in shit and doing even less than me tbh. This week so far I have sent 3 emails and read through some things while sat in the garden for work.

 

I used to feel guilt for stuff like this but since my dad died I’ve not given a fuck, the essential work gets done to the same level it was previously but the above and beyond bits can wait until I fancy doing them, if ever.

 

Can shift week to week for me depending on what I have on my plate.

 

The main thing though is that now my "performance" at work is all measured on what gets done, rather than how hard I "appear" to work. I'm somehow more productive and feel like I work less hard. Its class.

My entire working life is proof that you can toss it off at work way more than you think. Under promise then 'over deliver', never agree to the first timeline suggested, block out chunks of you diary so people believe you're busy, schedule an email to send after hours (and respond to any reply that generates immediately with "I'll have a look in the morning" kind of thing. I'm lucky that I can automate a lot of my work if I spend a little time and effort at the beginning. 

 

This morning, I've listened to a podcast, I've fucked about with my football stats excel thing for the coming season for a bit, I've done some exercise in the garden,  back indoors to send a few emails with work that was completed by a macro and do a bit of studying of coding that will make my job even easier.

 

Despite this pisstaking, I'm getting a bonus and a payrise. And once I complete this study I should be able to negotiate a paybump or move to another company.

 

Used to work on shifts with the Met police. Honestly, night shifts and weekends were mostly playing football manager,  or watching tv. For years I did this for good money.

That is first class loafing.

Currently a group-wide conference call that I've spoken about to the team beforehand, talked it up, recommend people join it. You know, that kind of thing. 

 

That's me in the back garden, reading the kindle, drinking a bottle of coke for the next hour and 45 minutes then.
