I left my phone home today when I went to work so that I wouldn’t procrastinate. Still got nothing done in the afternoon. Instead of looking at my phone I ended up reading an ebook. How do people not procrastinate?

Have you ever thought maybe the work you’re doing isn’t challenging/fulfilling enough? I had this issue and realize I wasn’t doing what I enjoyed.

Once I switched my job, I wasn’t procrastinating as much because I was more excited to work

I get bored with everything super easily. Gotta stick to this 😕

I don’t like calling it procrastinating. I’m recalibrating.

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.

My mother in law is the most judge mental person I’ve ever seen. During the 5-minute drive to the grocery shop, she would judge everyone on the street that she saw. “I can’t understand why people just stand there doing nothing”. “Omg I don’t understand why they xxx”. She went to a black church once, and told everyone about it. Honestly, I felt she was pretty condescending when talking about it. She drove rescue dogs a few times, and told everyone someone says she’s an angel. 🤮

After months of giving feedback to my product owner about the amount of interruptions and meetings and how it seriously affects my productivity, I took matters into my own hands and now block off my calendar except around other existing meetings.
He seems perturbed at my sudden unavailability and has scheduled a meeting today with no body and just “Catch Up” in the title, and I’m suspicious this will come up. I don’t want to explain what I’ve been doing for fear he’ll start to ignore my blocks.

LOL helped my dad financially about $50k and my dad just told me I could’ve bought a house if I saved up my money and didn’t spend it on myself. The reason why he said that is I went to Europe with my mom and spent about $10k without getting a help from my dad and that is what he said 😒
I can be mad at his comment right? I don’t know why he wants me to buy a house when he doesn’t even have one
