If you were watching yourself at work you would probably notice the following types of general outcomes:
2. Not productive
3. A total waste of time
4. The best thing you could do in that moment.
The secret is to decide on what you want to accomplish first.
Then notice your action/activity and the result you achieve relevant to the goal you desire.
What works means you moved closer to reaching your goal(s).
What doesn't work means you stayed where you are now or moved behind a bit.
If what you're doing isn't working, do you keep doing the same thing hoping for a different result?
Or are you so bored with what you're doing you're just reacting to whatever happens until you can get to the end of the day?
If either of the two scenarios above describe you at work, change the paradigm immediately. You're stuck.
