The Most Important Success Principle Ever: Never let your boss know that you exist.
— Ernie Zelinski

In the event that you have used up all of the items from The All-Time Top-10 Fun Things to Do at Work, here is another list of Top-10 Things to Do at Work for today:

  1. Try to convince your company's marketing director that "what a blast" should be a snappy marketing theme for your company's new product.

  2. Think of the Top 10 ways that you can outwit reality.

  3. Are you on a roll? Now think of the Top 10 ways that you can cheat eternity.

  4. Have this funny and humorous quote nicely arranged on expensive paper, frame it, and hang it on the wall by your desk. "You'll never succeed in idealizing hard work, Before you can dig mother earth you've got to take off your ideal jacket. The harder a man works at brute labor, the thinner becomes his idealism, the darker his mind."
     D. H. Lawrence

  5. Return dignity to the art of loafing by taking a nap.

  6. Give your boss a copy of the book Asshole No More.

  7. When your boss asks you what you are working on, tell him that you just found out that Hitler was one of your ancestors. Now you are trying to decide whether to hire a PR firm for damage control or handle it yourself by creating a list of all the good things that Hitler did. Just assure your boss that you will still send him a bosses day poem.

  8. Set up a foreign bank account to avoid income tax. Let your co-workers and me know how things play out when you are in the Mediterrean or in jail - which ever comes first.

  9. Walk around the office telling everyone you see, "The secret to life is finding great pleasure in being terribly deceived."

  10. Just be in the now — the present moment is the oasis of time!

Inspirational Quotes to Place Work in Proper Perspective So That You Can Have More Fun in the Workplace

The best way to enjoy your job is to imagine yourself without one.
— Oscar Wilde

My father taught me to work, but not to love it. I never did like to work, and I don't deny it. I'd rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh — anything but work.
— Abraham Lincoln

When you are doing something difficult, tedious, or extremely time-consuming,
ask yourself what would happen if you didn't do it. If the answer is nothing, or next to nothing, stop doing it.
— From Career Success WITHOUT a Real Job

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.
— G. K. Chesterton

Creativity is taking advantage of the opportunity to read inspirational retirement quotes at work so that I don't have to contemplate the act of committing suicide.
— Dave Erhard

The really efficient laborer will be found not to crowd his day with work, but will saunter to his task surrounded by a wide halo of ease and leisure.
— Henry David Thoreau

I say to hell with the work you have to do to earn a living! That kind of work does us no honor; all it does is fill up the bellies of the pigs who exploit us. But the work you do because you like to do it, because you've heard the call, you've got a vocation — that's ennobling! We should all be able to work like that. Look at me, Saturno — I don't work. And I don't care if they hang me, I won't work! Yet I'm alive! I may live badly, but at least I don't have to work to do it!
— Luis Buñuel

A lot of us are working harder than we want, at things we don't like to do. Why? It figures! In order to afford the sort of existence we don't care to live.
— Bradford Angier

One of the saddest things is that the only thing that a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You can't eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours — all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.
— William Faulkner

A test of whether you have achieved true fame is when a deranged person believes himself to be you.
— Author Unknown 

Perpetual devotion to what a man calls his business, is only to be sustained by perpetual neglect of many other things.
— Robert Louis Stevenson

If people really liked to work, we'd still be plowing the land with sticks and transporting goods on our backs.
— William Feather

It is not worth while to go round the world to count the cats in Zanzibar.
— Henry David Thoreau

There are only four types of officer. First, there are the lazy stupid ones. Leave them alone, they do no harm. Second, there are the hard-working intelligent ones. They make excellent staff officers, ensuring that every detail is properly considered. Third, there are the hard-working, stupid ones. These people are a menace and must be fired at once. They create irrelevant work for everyone. Finally, there are the intelligent lazy ones. They are suited for the highest office."
— General von Manstein about the German Officer Corps
