How to Pretend You’re Busy at Work

by Anton Amoto

busy personI got this crazy list from a friend.

  1. Always walk with three folders in your hands, even if the folders are empty. People with folders in their hands look like people going to meetings. People with nothing in their hands look like they’re doing nothing. And people with a newspaper in their hands look like they’re going to the toilet.
  2. Always leave your entire cubicle messy. Build huge piles of folders on your desk. Build stacks of books on the floor, even if you never read them. People around you will think you’re overworked.
  3. Always look harassed. This will give your bosses the impression that you’re really stressed out because of work.
  4. Send important emails to your boss at wee hours of the morning. Set your alarm clock at 2 AM, send the email, and go back to sleep. Your boss will be so convinced you’re such a hard worker.
  5. Sigh loudly when many other people are around. Give them impression that you’re under extreme pressure.
  6. In your conversations, say technical words even if you don’t understand them. For example, if an officemate complains that the Internet is slow, say, β€œIt’s because of nanotechnology and 2nd Law of Physics.” You can speak gibberish, and you’ll still sound impressive.

It got me thinking: This list was made by a genius. Why not use this genius to make work thrilling, fantastic, and excellent?

Which brings me to my message today. Some people think that spiritual people should be poor. I bet to disagree. I believe that spiritual people can be the most prosperous people in the world. Why? Because spiritual people love to serve. You see, there are two kinds of presperity. You can become rich by stealing and lying to people. But that’s the path to sad prosperity. Do you want happy prosperity? I believe the only path to happy prosperity is through service. The fastest way to get rich in life is to solve other people’s problems.

Remember this qoute: “Try not to become a man of success but a man of value – Albert Einstein.”

So yes, I believe you can prosper. You can be rich. Click here to see how to gain financial wealth and spiritual abundance at the same time.
