They vastness between engagement and disengagement:
Work generally takes up a third of the time available for living. Work is a strange experience: it provides some of the most intense and satisfying moments, it gives a sense of pride and identity, yet it is something most of us are glad to avoid…84 percent of American men and 77 percent of women say they would continue to work even if they inherited enough money so they no longer needed a job…when people are signaled at work they endorse the item “I wish I was doing something else” more than at any other time of the day.
