So its okay to burn up overtime setting up a single-sourcing system, but it would
be unacceptable if your boss asked you to stay overtime to get some docs done?
(Presumably using that very same system that you spent all this time to build.)

This is where my whole argument about overtime work hinges. People are always
happy to work overtime on something they enjoy (like setting up single-sourcing
systems). But when it comes to doing the mind-numbing work they were hired to
complete...they have to get home to the kids/dog/spouse/car/hobby/etc.
