How productive were you at work today?

Basel and I am flying out to see March Madness today.

So I am "reactively" working. IF it needs my immediate attention it gets done other stuff can wait.

Don't really remember much about today . It started off normal enough then around mid morning I think I started hallucinating , I was seeing all my Rolex/Tudor nightmares over & over again and the images kept on appearing again & again hurting my eyes until tears rolled down my cheeks . One of my co workers ,came to my rescue & drove me home .I am now shivering & shaking but slowly recovering , this has to be one of the most unproductive days I have ever had .

Care to elaborate on the range of your scale and what shenanigans?

Very productive. In Tokyo at "work" with a few days to kill, so naturally instead of worrying about what some stuffed shirts in Switzerland were doing I spent it fully enjoying the nicer-than-forecast weather, a few National holiday goings on, a couple hours wandering through an amazing light/digital art museum, a giant burger at Munch's and some incredible wagyu, eel, chicken, lotus, and other assorted delicacies at a little friend-of-a-friend's place nobody's ever heard of.

Didn't think about watches once except whenever I looked at the one on my own wrist, but that was just to tell the time.

98% of the time, I love my job.

(Okay okay. Maybe when I first woke up during coffee #1 I peeked just a tiny bit at what was happening elsewhere)

After my gruelling morning walk I drank coffee on the verandah for an hour and read my book on the WW2 military campaign for the Dutch bridges.
Then it was time for lunch.
After lunch I went out and bought some items to service my cars and then spent a couple of hours in my local wine merchant looking for something to cellar.
Then it was almost dinner time.
It was a very productive day.

Thursday is my favourite day of the week. Was a good day clearing some backlog and getting some new balls rolling

Would binge watching Netflix all day be considered productive?

I’m still working, been going since 3:30am. If I want to afford this hobby I have to WORK! Lol

So I would rate my productivity 10/10.

We're not allowed to speak those dirty four-letter words in our home! Actually, I did work on my tan. Does that count?
