I'm hired to produce the best online help application that I know
how, regardless of the number of hours. Therefore, while I'm not
going to rush like mad every hour I work, I also have more work to do
than I could ever use up....I just keep adding additional dimensions
to my projects.
I work a steady 7 hours per day (our work days are 9-5 with an hour
lunch for a total of 35 paid hours per week). I do this whether I'm
in the office, working from home, sitting on a train, or with an hour
to kill at a train station or airport.
Doesn't anyone believe in the premise of working to make the best
deliverable instead of only making sure that the employer isn't being
cheated and to do only enough to make your conscious feel OK?
