Excerpts from the Life Admin blog on Psychology Today

It's Tax Time. Find the Fun.

We Dread and Avoid Our Taxes, But Pleasure Is Possible

One big surprise from my research on life admin—the office work of life—is how often people report finding pleasure in doing admin.

Person after person told me that they actually kind of like admin, when they make time for it. Which we mostly don’t.

Instead, we put it off. Like this Onion headline: “Woman Going to Take Quick Break After Filling Out Name, Address on Tax Forms.” Sound familiar?  It does to me.
