Last week I was on the bench for the first time ever. I regret not doing less. I thought I was being a "good" employee. Turns out I was being a moron and I should have fled

Enjoy it. Don’t do any work you don’t absolutely have to do. The long days are coming, so enjoy these free days, while you have them.
