Today, I can officially add “excavator” to my resume.
While killing time between meetings, I was faced with a critical business decision: start Mundane Task #1 or continue Tedious Task #2. I opted instead to clean out my purse.
In doing so, I successfully unearthed two crumpled receipts, a candy wrapper, a few empty Lactaid packets (every lactose intolerant girl with a latte addiction needs a handy supply of lactase enzymes in her purse), two appointment cards and an unused Starbucks gift card.
That sounds like a successful excavation to me.
RESUME UPDATE: Ability to locate and retrieve lost artifacts buried for extended periods of time.
The added bonus to my mid-morning procrastination break…I now need to register that gift card on Starbucks’ website and upload the balance to my account. If I work it right, I could kill another 10 minutes and rightfully move “prioritization” to the top spot on my LinkedIn skills list!
After that, I’m heading to Starbucks for a latte.
