1. The thinking game

It’s normal to think about your tasks long and hard before actually doing them, preparation after all is key in successful project execution. But you don’t want to think about it too long or else you’ll end up like this guy!

2. Older and thus wiser

There’s always an excuse to put off those tasks until tomorrow, this one seems to make a lot more sense (or does it?).

3. Time management paradox

How can you manage your time if you don’t have time for time management? It’s a puzzle, really!


4. Endless task list

Those tasks can really add up if you keep moving them ’til Friday. Don’t do it folks, or else you’ll end up with a to-do list as endlessly long as this one.


5. Seeing double

Yesterday’s tasks are now today’s tasks and the cycle continues. If you’re feeling like you’re trapped in a time loop of endless tasks, it might be time to reassess your time management strategy.

6. New vs Old Project

It’s easy to get excited about a new project. But before you dive into that new task, make sure to finish your pending ones first! You don’t want to leave it hanging, or in the case of this meme, drowning.


7. Ignorance is bliss

If you can’t see your tasks, you can’t stress about them, right? Well, not exactly. Ignoring your tasks won’t make them disappear, even if you put a blindfold over your head!

8. Running from deadlines

Everyday can almost feel like a constant game of outrunning deadlines. Peter Griffin knows how that feels!

Another one for the overthinkers out there! This chart definitely sums up how time is spent when working on tasks.

Time management courses are great and all but they can really put a nail on the coffin of an already busy week. This meme definitely sums up how that feels.

To do or not to do? Well, according to Spongebob it’s not to do. I wouldn’t recommend it though. Sure, you can ignore that urgent task for now but it will come flying back to your face eventually!

13. So much to do so little time

Fitting in everything you need to do in a limited time frame can feel like a real puzzle, harder to crack than those mystery cases. But hey, it’s nothing a little time management can’t fix!

You can’t really enjoy the weekend with all that pending work hanging on your mind. So next time make sure to check your priorities and plan your week right so when Friday comes you can TGIF and have some weekend fun.
