Do I spend too much time at work?
First, I work eight hours a day and I sleep eight hours. That means I work half of my waking time.
Second, I only work two out of three days (counting weekends, public vacations and paid holidays adds up pretty close to one third). This means that I spend one third of my waking time at work. Not too bad.
Third, I’ll probably work around half of my life (I didn’t work during my first 20 years here and I won’t work when I’m old either).
That means I am going to spend about one sixth of my life at work (awake life, that is). That definitely doesn’t feel like “too much”, does it?
Oh, plus I got some tesuji up my sleeve… but more on that next time.
