I hate work.
To some extent, we all do.
But I don’t hate my job, and sometimes my passion pushes me to work a lot harder and longer than I usually like to.
Other times, circumstances do.
In either case, pulling 80- or even 100-hour workweeks sucks beyond description.
And while I’m not proud of it—and by no means recommend it—I’ve had enough of them to have figured out a strategy for making it through a truly awful work bender without having a mental breakdown.
