There’s a difference between doing boring stuff at work and being bored at work. Doing boring stuff IS work. Being bored at work means you need more boring stuff to do. And there’s your uplifting message of the day.
According to a new survey, the average person says they’re bored at work for at least 10-and-a-half hours every WEEK. That’s more than two hours a day.
Our bosses know we’re not totally stimulated all the time, but they don’t think it’s THAT bad. The average manager says their employees are only bored six hours a week.
So what do people do to kill that time? Some of the answers they gave are: Watching videos online . . . daydreaming . . . cleaning their desk . . . doodling . . . pretending to work . . . and looking for other jobs.
