How to keep up with your work schedule & the FIFA matches

“Its going to be a late night… Its the first game Brazil v Croatia… Its what we have waited for. Its a given and its going to be a late reporting whether they like it or not, at the shoot tomorrow…” – Big B on his blog.

For all you football fans, the season’s biggest party has begun….the FIFA World Cup! It is time to be ready with pots of caffeine to get you through the late night (or should we say early morning) matches, slip into your favorite pyjamas and give the phrase couch potato, a whole new meaning. There’s only a small hitch…… office that warrants attendance at 10 am! Here are some wacky ways to manage the ever so important FIFA schedule with the …err not so important work schedule (hope the boss isn’t reading this!)

1. Use social media to inform the boss in advance of the late reporting, bole toh Big B style!

2. Use all the earned leaves at this time, after all you have “earned” the luxury of watching the matches & cheering for your favorite team!

3. How about convincing the HR team of the merits of Virtual office? Isn’t technology the biggest enabler? What better way to put that trendy mac book & the data card to use, but by working from home? ( you can put the time that you would have spent commuting to better use….namely catching up on some sleep….zzzzzzz)

4. If all the above fail fall back on the tried & tested concept of a Power Nap during the day. A 15 minute nap can leave you much energized & ready to take on the day.

5. If you have been tackling months of insomnia while the world has been lulling itself to sleep, this is time for sweet revenge. Put the tossing & turning in bed to better use (read watching some great sporting action) & yet take on the day as you have been doing…. this time with renewed vigor!

6. Last but definitely not the least how about indulging in some man to man marking at work? Only this time both the players need to play for the same team & save the marked player from times when the boss & slumber arrive at the same time!

In case you have figured out any other way to manage the matches & work, do post your ideas & let us know. Till then its time to recharge the battery for all the 12.30am and 3:30 am matches. Phew!
