I’m at the office, and I’m supposed to be working, but instead I’m on here, daydreaming and wasting time! Lol!
i’m discovering that I am having an incredibly hard time being self-motivated when I’m telecommuting from home or by myself in the office- I can’t concentrate on data entry and other jobs when I have a wedding in 110 days!! haha…
i know I’m not alone here, who else feels like they aren’t as good an employee anymore, the closer it gets to the big day?

@mtnhoney: My big day was almost 6 months ago. And this is STILL as distracting. Guilty

No one has noticed but yes, I do find that I am not quite as focused as I was before getting engaged. I still accomplish my work though so it’s all good. 😛

@MlleBrielle: oh NO! Lol!
I’m worried about that too, since my partner and I will be trying to conceive pretty soon after the wedding (I’m 34 so no time to waste!) so I’m just going to go from wedding obsession and being here on the wedding boards, to baby obsession and being here on the nesting boards! haha…

Thankfully, I’m not working so I can focus on my wedding as much as I want.

I’m not wedding planning anymore but when I was, I was like the least motivated employee this companies ever seen. Even now that the weddings behind me, I’m still on WB all day while in the office. Hell, I should be working right now but obviously I’m not, lol.

No, if I started slacking, I’d probably get fired. My job is high pressure and about productivity, so if I slacked, there would be major problems.

My wedding is at the end of the year, my industry’s super busy time! So I figure I’m doing everyone a favor by getting everything done now, while it’s slow. HAHA 🙂

I don’t work anywhere near a computer, so I’m pretty good at not being distracted. Sometimes my co-workers will ask about my wedding and we’ll talk about it, but we work while we talk so it doesn’t affect my work at all.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Brookfield Zoo
Alright, I voted “YES but I’m doing a good job of meeting deadlines and no one is noticing…” but my cube is right by the hallway and basically everytime someone passes by they can see my computer screen. I may be getting my work done but I don’t think I’m doing a good job of hiding it! LoL

I am one month before my wedding…I think my co-workers and boss know that at this point I am doing all I can just to get by.
I am staying on top of my continuously growing work load and I’m the most dependable and reliable employee here so if I want to check WB throughout the day I am going to do it.

YES! I find it soo hard to focus on work..I am on here and on Pinterest so much while at work…BUT I still get everything done by the necessary deadlines so its not a huuuge deal (still feel bad for getting paid to plan my wedding though)

My productivity has definitely taken a nosedive since getting engaged 🙁

I’ve been married for nearly 8 months and I STILL go on the Bee every day 🙂

When I have work to do, I work hard and bust my ass to get it done as quickly and accurately as possible. That way, I can finish early or designate certain tasks for certain times to appear busy when necessary and have plenty of time to plan my wedding online. In fact, I got here at 7:30 this morning, busted ass and was finished with all of my work before 11:00 AM. To be clear, I am available if something were to come up or a carrier or customer called and needed my assistance, but for the most part, “I ain’t got shit to do the rest of the day”.
