A Typical Week In A Corporate Office Job
When I worked at a decently sized corporation, most people would kind of jack around, look at their assignments etc., on Monday morning. They’d start working on it around 2 PM on Monday afternoon, half heartedly, and then start thinking about what they were going to have for dinner, go to the cooler, go have a snack, email, etc. They would have gotten about 30 minutes of real actual work in by around 3:30 in the afternoon.
By that time, they decide the day is shot, look at the project for another 30 or so minutes, "planning" until they get an email about something unimportant. They spend some time on the email for no apparent reason, and now it’s 4:30. They get on reddit till 5.
They come in Tuesday morning raring to go. They finish about half of the project by lunch. They spend the rest of the afternoon researching their fantasy football team, since they ate a big lunch to celebrate.
They come back, Wednesday, and there a decent amount of emails about nothing from Corporate in their in box. They have to fill out various forms and self evals. This sucks, and eats up their Wednesday morning. There’s a meeting around 2:30 of their department. They fuk around after lunch, until the meeting. The meeting lasts till 3:45. Fuk it, I’ll finish this Thursday.
They get another quarter of it done Thursday morning, since they are kind of bored of the work week, and their kid kept them up the night before. They start making plans and emailing and texting with their friends for Thursday happy hour, or college football watching or whatever it is that they are going to do. It’s now 2:30 Thursday and they have about 3/4 of their project done.
Their kid calls from school and needs X,Y,Z or something else occurs to take them from work, maybe they are sick, or need car repair, for whatever reason, no one was ever at work on Thursday afternoon.
They get in Friday morning, and now they are kind of anxious, because if something goes wrong, they won’t finish. That fear gets them kind of paralyzed until about 10:30. They start working on it, decide to eat lunch at their desk, and finish the work up at around 2:30 on Friday.
They go chat with their friend in HR because they feel good, and then realize they still need to send the work to their boss, look at their clock and realize it’s 4:45.
They send it to their boss, who is happy they finished "on time." Said boss continues to think it takes a week to get that kind of work done.

I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what it was. But for all my life I haven’t been a man.
At any point in my life I can say “this, this is why I didn’t need to grow up”.
I was protected by my parents.
I was protected by the money I earned.
I was protected by people going easy on me.
And never did I take responsibility. Never did I work hard. Never did I do things because they needed to be done – instead I just did the minimum to get around – and for the rest found excuses.
I have lived like a child, all my life.
And I am in my twenties and still I live like a child.
I complain about the things I lack – instead of working for them.
I complain about the things others don’t do – instead of doing them myself.
I worry about what might come – but I don’t plan anything.
I pity myself in my sadness or worries – instead of acting upon them.
I wonder why I sit alone at home – instead of going out and making friends.
I hate myself for not learning the skills or languages I want to learn – instead of making the effort.
All my life I have lived like a child. All my life I was too scared or worried or lazy or distracted or immature to stand up and say:
This is what I want, and I will make it happen.
This is the person I want to meet and I will meet him.
This is the job I want and I will fight my ass off to get it.
This is the book I need to know and I will sit down and I will not eat or drink until I have finished it.
This is the world I want to conquer and I will not give up until I have conquered it.
Now is the time. Now is the time that I need to stand up and fight.
Because else it is too late.
The longer I wait, the longer I keep thinking and speaking and acting like a child, the longer I will stay a child.
The longer I wait, the more unreachable will my goals become.
The longer I wait, the shorter is the time that I can be a man.
The longer I wait, the more of my life will I have wasted.
Today is the day I will become a man.
Today is the day I will think like a man, speak like a man and act like a man.
Today and every day from now:
I will be there for those that need me.
I will stand up for what is right.
I will do what needs to be done.
I will fight for what I want.
I will persevere, even when things get hard.
I will work even when I feel lazy.
I will do sport even when my body aches.
I will learn even when my mind feels numb.
I will meet people even when I’m scared.
I will speak when I need to speak.
I will work when I need to work.
I will be what I want to be.
Today I will be a man.
