How does one work 50+ hours a week? - Page 15
Yeah, but as CTGuy was explaining, we don't want any active cultures in our Chipotle, you know?
SkinnyGoomba finally had enough, I guess, but I just had to throw this in there:
Calling bullshit on that one.
work smarter, dont work harder or longer.
Owning your own business is a way to lift yourself out of the rat race if you are smart and dont build it around you working longer/harder.
You see, if you're going to slag off everyone you're talking to, call bullshit, tell them they're full of shit, laugh at them, and tell them the secrets of your success, you've got to give them a reason to think you might, just maybe, have some idea WTF you're talking about. If you want to be discreet about your business alleged dealings, that's cool, I respect and understand that. But don't be surprised in that case if, when you go offering business advice, someone calls "bullshit," to borrow a phrase.
There. I feel better now.
You see, that's why C level folk get the big money. You need the 30k view. It's not just the salsa in isolation. You need to look at the WIP for the entire condiments line.
You might also streamline the condiment preparation department within human resources to create a suitable and fast-pace condiment preparation network.
I include a nice siesta after the martini lunch, it may have to due with my latin heritage, I feel it helps me unwind. Shirt picking is not that stressful for me, choosing the right buttonaire on the other hand.......
Yes, a nice nap is important.
Sometimes, picking what scent to wear is even more stressful.
I don't think I could hack it in a billable hours environment; I don't know if they live at work, have incredible powers of concentration or are screwing their clients, but the annual billable hours I've heard thrown around in conversation from some of the lawyers I know seem ludicrous to me.
DAMN!! I work 20 hours a week and I get by very comfortably. Granted, a lot extra time is spent on my start-up, but I don't really consider that work until a revenue starts to show. Having worked such hours for the last 3 years, it'll be hard to go back to the "regular" stuff...
20 hours a week?! Damn, what do you do?
I currently teach TOEFL to Chinese high school kids. Not a very demanding job, and lesson planning is usually another 2-3 hours on top of that but actual work is about 20h. Obviously that doesn't pay anywhere near as much as most of you guys here make, but considering that the prices are A LOT lower here than in the US/west, I'm pretty happy. I do want to go back to school though.
