Actual work

With all the meetings and meetings about meetings and posturings and watering hole discussions and politics and bureaucracy and time wasting and distractions and CCs and BCCs and all-hands and mixers and off-campuses and eggshell walking…

…it’s amazing that any actual work gets done inside of many companies.

I remember staying until late in the evening just to to get work done.

I remember getting warmed up around 6pm when the emails stopped coming in so I could focus.

I remember pulling an all-nighter at work just to have a productive and distraction-free swath of time.

Work culture is broken.
