Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
My European work ethic is simple:

  1. minimise the time for a given job, not maximise the result from working a given time

  2. keep the time saved for yourself (or your blog...), not for your company

  3. get on with life

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes

of a path toward keeping work in proper perspective.

Impressively, as easily applicable to 'house work' and other 'daily chores' as it is to one's business life.

Jerome -- I often salute the quality of your contributions, this one I salute in terms of its quality combined with brevity ... Bravo!

The CabinGirl corollary to your work ethic is:  Why spend 40 hours a week doing something you can finish in 25?   Maximize the fun:work ratio.
