You can easily gauge your environment, your productivity, and your happiness by noticing your behavior when no one is around.
- Are you just as productive as when the manager is standing behind your back?
- Do you take a break and relax for a bit?
- Do you start browsing the web aimlessly?
- Do you buckle down and push the envelope because there’s no one there to distract you?
- Do you focus on the stuff that matters, even though no one will notice?
Do you want easy or meaningful? It’s your choice.
