Here we go again – the daily commute!

Morning. On the Train yet?

The commute to your office takes hours doesn’t it?

And, when you get there – what do you do?

  • Have a coffee
  • Complain about the commute and last nights TV.
  • Start work at 9.27
  • Do the Daily Stand Up call
  • Email the person next to you
  • Start the project plan
  • Zoom the guys overseas
  • Check Facebook
  • Get distracted by the conversation at the water cooler. Who is Naby Kieta and why is he worth 50m?
  • Lunch – spend £10 at Costa

    Take a call from The Boss while you’re there.  He’s on a Leadership Team away day. He says that the facilitator is spouting on about something called smart working – which can apparently improve productivity by as much as 13% – Pah!

  • Phone the Supplier
  • Sing Happy Birthday to Margaret.  Eat cake.
  • Chat about the cold weather with Jamie from accounts
  • Email the person next to you
  • Do as much of the project plan as you can – you’ll do the rest on the train home. It’s due tomorrow. Too many distractions today!
  • Get the train.   No room to sit so can’t do the project plan
  • Read the story.  Say night night to the kids
  • Start on the project plan
  • Yawn
  • Same thing tomorrow?
