But have no motivation to do anything about it.
Other times I'm shit. I get the feeling only the shit times are noticed.
Which is probably why I've been here 10 years.
then i'd be ^ This ing like you wouldn't believe. Mmm, memey.
I'm still working here, though. Great.
You have no problem if your boss has the same level of motivation.
I think if I was put under more pressure it'd make me pull my finger out and be more motivated to improving my performance.
But sitting at a screen that nobody else can see and having access to the internet, iplayer and Spotify = procrastimania
got invited out for an all expenses paid dinner with the bosses yesterday due to my high performance but had to decline due to band practice.
i only work in a callcenter though, it's not the best thing ever to be good at.
i'm actually doing better than i was a year or so ago, but that's because the boredom got to me to the point whereby it's easier to get by if i actually do something.
when i worked, erm, my supervisor used to tell me i was really good all the time, but LAZY. my performance was genuinely atrocious - i had ten hours of internet use logged in one week (can't believe it was that low). i used to have breaks every half hour where i would go to the work toilets and take amusing pictures of myself in the mirrors or call insomniac friends and have half-hour conversations.
despite all this, no-one ever said i was 'shit' at my job. i think not feeling passionate about it was the worst thing - being shit can at least be excused to others, but feeling urrrrgh about the job everyday isn't really excusable to oneself...erk.
I thought you just got paid to sit on the internet all day anyway?
