me: i really need to start putting a full 40 hours of work in each week.
friend with great sensibility: oh no! all you must do is figure out what output people at work expect from a 40 hour work week.
me: oh yes, then do just that.
fwgs: no, you just slightly exceed that amount of work and everyone is wildly impressed, it is about outputs, not inputs!
me: of course!
