Sure, as long as I am not posting on this site or the other two I "quickly" post on.

OldEnuf2BYurDad (Anonymous) says:"It depends how much I'm getting paid."That attitude will ensure that you'll never get paid much. The "Pay me first, then I'll work hard" attitude.But what else would you expect from someone who looks to be of the age of someone in "Generation Me?"

Kudos to Sigmund for using the word, "effective." He took the word right out of my keyboard.

I used to be like Jennifer the nurse.After working that hard all my life, my reward is a very busted up body.Now, I can proudly say I efficiently eat sunflower seeds.But, some do fly out of my fingers when I pick them up, and if I forget to put the top on the "shells can" the cat sometimes zooms over the end table and spills it, and I can't get down under it to clean it up.So, maybe I should stay home from the seed contest this year.Take #2;I am pretty efficient with the remote.

I'm incredibly effective at my job. How else could I have so much free time to screw around??

I dunno. Better send a group of professors and students at Kansas University with their laptop computers over to my office to check...

I find it humorous that the responders from Missouri state that they are inefficient while the Lawrence workers claim efficiency. Hmmm. :)

Good answer, Cassie! I will be an efficient hard worker if I respect my employer.

Not when there's so many comments to read on the message boards...I am so easily distracted at times!

Only when I have to be. Unfortunately, I usually have to be.

Yes, once I get started. It takes me a little bit in the morning to gear up/wake up but once I'm on a roll I'm tenacious at seeing it through. I usually finish all my task by the end of the day. I'm the type of person who has to accomplish something everyday to make life worthwhile. My weak point are obstacles. I tend to lose my temper on days that I've not gotten enough sleep when I come upon too many obstacles. I don't take breaks either, not like some people I work with who are always on a break and get away with it. I guess everyone is so used to me always being there that if I'm not or am seen doing nothing they assume I'm wasting time. Oh well I'd rather be busy than bored.

Absolutely. I've learned how to do my work AND post on the LJW site at the same time. Multitasking rocks!
