I think we all know that work bores me - I'm sure I'm not the only one. I find most tasks boring, despite the fact that when I was a kid I went through a phase of wanting to be a secretary. I suppose as an administrator now, I got my wish. Hmmm - it's not what it's cracked up to be, put it that way. I guess there's a bit more variation in my job than most basic admin jobs but ultimately it's all just the same jobs, right?
There is the odd task I don't mind doing though. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't do even these tasks on repeat for the rest of my working life, but I sometimes almost find myself happy to do them. Well - in comparison to the other tasks.
Stuffing envelopes for example. Putting things in envelopes and sealing them can while away a relatively pleasant half hour.
Typing up letters - I like the noise the keys make when I hit them hard and fast (ooh - er . . . )
Occasionally even PHOTOCOPYING can provide a bit of light relief. I know what you're thinking . . . weird, right?
Today it was typing up labels for packages and sticking them on. Odd but . . . it actually made my day better. And more importantly, go faster!
Is it just me, or are there any mundane tasks that can almost brighten up YOUR working day???
