When you really enjoy what you work, overtime is a non issue. The word does not exist. It is not even a consideration. You just do until you are done – Which can last years.
Jobs have set hours. 9-5. Any action you take outside of these hours that contributes to your job would be considered overtime. You are constrained.
I never want that feeling.
If I ever say to someone that I cannot hang out or meet up because I need to work overtime I’ve failed.
Overtime may also imply that you are pushing harder, getting ahead, beating out the competition or just showing off.
Nonsense. A poor excuse. Overtime implies the need to complete tasks, not goals.
Do what you enjoy and there will be no such thing as overtime.
