Addicted to the Boards

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Do any of you find that you have become addicted to the SP website and message boards?? Typically I do all of my SP stuff during my low points at work. Right now I am not particularly busy as my boss is away on vacation and things seem to be running as smooth as they can be on the building site.

However, lately I have been finding that it has been taking over my work day. I'm always checking to see if anyone has posted anything new to my SparkTeams' message boards or on my SparkPage. I get disappointed when nothing new gets posted. I find that I am delaying my actual office work because I'm busy responding to someone else's post. There are some things that I should have done days ago, when I received them, but instead I have delayed taking action until it cannot be delayed any more. There are other things that I could take action on right away, but seem to put them off for no good reason. I'm now feeling guilty for occupying my time at work with other things that do not involve work. I haven't missed any deadlines yet, but my priorities seem to be shifting at times.

    YES, oh YES. I am just waiting for them to pull the plug on me here at work. I need to MOVE AWAY, just slowly MOVE AWAY. LOL I am thinking that this will die down sooner or later. I am hoping I am not trading a food addiction for an SP addiction. emoticon

    Oh yeah. I'm addicted as well but I'm trying to give myself just 10 minutes at a time so I don't go overboard!

    Yes, me too. I'm not working now (I'm a teacher) and I had so many things I had to do this summer...organize closets, paint, ...but I haven't done anything because I'm on SP. I need to wean myself off the message boards so I can go back to work.
