It´s Friday, the weekend is almost here, so I figured we would kick it off a little early by having a bit of fun. This isn´t a new article, but I have had it kicking around in the bits and bytes of my computer for a long while, so I thought I´d dust it off and hope it makes you giggle a bit like it does for me. It´s written by a time management speaker and seminal leader from Connecticut named Dr. Donald Wetmore, and it was written in 1999. Remember Jeff Foxworthy? Remember when his "you might be a redneck´ shtick was fresh and funny? This article, called "You Just Might Be A Workaholic´ brings that Foxworthian sensibility to the realm of productivity. Some of them are quite funny (if they aren´t funny but rather true, you might want to take an extra long look in the mirror). Here are a few of my favorites:
If it frustrates you that they don’t allow laptops on a Ferris wheel, you may be a workaholic.
If you bring your spreadsheets to your son’s football game, you may be a workaholic.
If you use your cell phone in the shower to return business calls in the morning before work, you might just be a workaholic.
If you set your alarm for 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. so you can check your voicemail, well, you just might be a workaholic.
If it bothers you that you are always at work before and after everyone else, you might be a workaholic.
If a clown is not so funny, an owl is not so wise, and you think that Peter Pan cannot really fly, you might be a workaholic.
You can check out the rest of the article here. If, after reading Dr. Wetmore´s list, you have your own to add, just leave them in the comments section here. If you make me laugh I´ll mention your name in a post next week.
