I've been swimming in work for about 3.5 years now. I don't need to
seek it - it finds me. ;-) But my advice is to always be proactive
about staying in the loop of projects past, present, and future. The
more you know about what'sgoing on, the better you can plan your
workload and perhaps reduce the amount of "down time" while also
reducing the amount of "crunch time".
