My fastest and best work days were those that I napped through.

Do you have ideas for how to make the days pass faster during the next several years?

you dont. Find a job that you like to do that the day goes by fast. As for me, i work 12/day 6 days a week to scarify for my early retirement. I like my job, but i dont love it; obviously, I love to retire more.

The worst days are when there is nothing going on. Unfortunately you probably have to pretend like you are busy or at the least you are still required to have your butt in the seat all day even if you have nothing to do.

Slow work days are the biggest reason why I want to switch to working remotely from home. If I was home and there was nothing going on I'd watch tv or play video games. I resent the fact that most employment requires face time even though you are being hired as a professional to work autonomously and get projects done, not to punch a clock.

I think its a Baby Boomer thing. My generation and younger seem less uptight. I'd gladly take a cut in pay if it meant I didn't have to waste my time. This is why I am pushing towards early semi-retirement asap.
totally agree with you on this
