This is GOAL NUMBER 2 ——–> CHECK EMAIL FIVE TIMES A DAY MAXIMUM
After writing the line above, I had to fight off the urge to check my email. Completed 36 seconds of work? Better check email. A surprise Pulitzer nomination may have hit my inbox. Or perhaps GQ has suddenly recognized the allure of my non-conventional good looks (kudos to that dude from Girls for paving the way). Maybe the lead singer of The Corrs finally wants to hook up (you had your chance, Andrea; I’ve moved on.)
I have three emails accounts that I check regularly. If any one of them is open in a tab on my computer while I’m working, my eye travels to that tab at least once a minute to see if the number of emails has changed. It’s amazing that I ever get anything done.
Last night I watched two episodes of The Killing on Netflix. It took 90 minutes. I paused to check email three times.
If only email-checking burned calories.
