I work in an office, and I am known as a slacker, even my boss acknowledges this.
I get all my projects done on time, and I never miss a deadline, so, they let my slacking go.
Now you may wonder, how can you slack off at work, and stil get everything done on time. well, that is a personal secret, ( that i wont post on company time ) but for many many moons i slacked without ANYONE ever knowing. And that is what i will talk about:
#1) If you want to web surf, simply web surf stuff related to your work, i'm a programmer, so i web surf toms hardware, and local computer stores, and programming howtos, and thinkgeek.
#2) Whenever chatting on aim, or irc, or posting messages/diaries here, say your on a support board, or talking to a support person who is helping you work out a problem you are having.
#3) Argue with cube-partners about science or politics, there are 3 of us in an enclosed area, and we argue for about an hour every day about politics, science, religion, its great fun. boss walks by, hears us arguing away, thinks were hard at work, cuz were not laughing.
I should note, this method works in many enviroments, the coffee room, going into someones office and hangin' out there for a while.
#4) Smoke breaks, Every office has at least one smoker, if you yourself do not smoke, make friends with the smoker, and whenever he goes outside for a break, join him, he will go at least 4 times.
During these smoke breaks you can go for a walk outside, get some fresh air, chat about anything non-work related.
#5) coffee room, walking around the office.
Grab your empty coffee cup, walk the long way around the office to the coffee room, chat with anyone who says hi to you, but make sure you say goodbye before they do, that way you will appear to be working hard, finally arrive at the coffee room, and if the coffee pot is more than 1/2 empty, then spend the time reading the news paper and make a fresh pot, and anyone who comes, just tell them you 'love' fresh coffee, you can read the news paper and chat with people for about 10 minutes, then, get your cup of coffee, and walk the long way back to your desk, once again, chat with people, but always say goodbye first. finally arrive at your desk, and there you can spend an easy 5 minutes just enjoying the smell of your drink and cooling it off , or warming your hands on it, and stiring it.
#6) cleaning your office, if your human, you probably have a messy desk, one way to kill alot of time, and feel good, is to clean up your desk. This should only be done at the beginning or the end of the day, but can usually last as much as 20-30 minutes.
#7) work related relaxing, i dont know what other desk jockies do, but i'm a programmer, so writing comments into my code is a good thing to do when your current task is too daunting..
#8) Do your work, now now, read this..
I Love programming, so, on occation , i do my work, (usually alot of it in one stretch). So doing your job, you achieve goals, you have a purpose, it IS an option.
This is a short list of things that can be done to make your time at work more enjoyable.
I would add more, but its time to go for some coffee. and i probably wont be back for at least 30-45 minutes, so please be patient with me replying. to your comments.
