Working hard is something that office workers succumb to in order to fall in line. But there is an art to working minimally in an epicenter that prides itself on franticness and stress. For one, you have to stop trying to “find” work to do when there isn’t any.
Letting go of the guilt you feel over “not doing anything” (which really isn’t your fault because there is nothing on this earth that takes eight hours to complete in the office realm) can greatly help you with not working while at work. Taking breaks, popping a diuretic so you can go to the bathroom for at least an hour and shopping in the Times Square nexus are all ways you can work hard to not work. Try it next time you feel bored off your tits.
