    Okay well first of all no LARP I make $220k gross and have a stake as a marketing leader in a tech startup.

    Since I work with a European company, I start work a bit earlier, but here's my day.

    >online at 8 am, meaning I am drinking. Coffee and browsing LULZ and chat
    >lead a standup 8:30
    >Couple meetings if necessary
    >11 am, they are all logging off so I take a 2 hr lunch break
    > come back and do high cognition work for 2 Hrs
    >listen to an ebook about my domain and play with baby daughter
    >another hard day of work complete

    Sometimes if i have a particularly demanding task I will play video games for hours before having a beer and doing what is required

    I literally outperform every other peer in my discipline in terms of effective output per week, leadership, and project management.

    All while essentially working a 30 hour week.

    Really smart people figure out how to maximize their brain output. For high cognition it's equal parts tomfoolery with actually sitting at the grindstone.

      Went back to med school, became a rural GP and despite working twice the hours I'm 10 times happier.

      The worst part of marketing in tech was pretending the dogshit we developed was solving an actual problem or helping the world when really we were just pumping our bags at the expense of gullible people and trying to convince VC to give use more funding based on bullshit metrics.

      This
      I can do the job in 30 min instead of 8h because I autistically spent two decades hacking and coding any existing device, so I know how optimize for yields and maximize the “make your managers jaw drop because of your outstanding work”
      For example, I spent years on my own writing exploits, then I landed a corporate job at a big tech doing vulnerability research
      My colleagues were spending months and finding nothing, and since I know most of the kernels like my pockets, I know all the weak spots and what to target
      So I wrote a dumb fuzzer targeting a specific area which was very likely to contain bugs and 1h later I had an exploitable privilege escalation bug
      So yeah it’s true some us are working 30 minutes per day, but to reach that level we had to spend 2 decades building the experience that very few other people have
      And if you know a little bit of social engineering you know performance metrics are retarded and you can rig them easily at your own advantage

    Hey why are you describing my life?

    On the positive side burnouts can cause a lot of personal development even if I became unable to work as a software developer.
    I am still in front of my computer but this time I learn trading.
    Who would have thought that getting -10% dumps in a single candle is less stressful than working as a software developer.

    By the way the competition comes from self pressure and psychological issues.
    Nobody forces you to deliver at a high pace.
    This is the danger of doing more than you should because you are bored.
    Those who don't work that much understood this reality that they were over-delivering when compared to low IQ apes who got the same salary as them for a reduced amount of work.

    The key is to never reveal your real ability and work the minimum to keep your work because what you consider your minimum is more than the maximum for NPCs who also get hired.

            Other possibilities would be Ireland, maybe the Island of Main if they have an investor program or Hungary.
            They seem to have reduced the company taxes to 9% which is nice, but I don't understand their taxation system.

    The effect money has just on social standing is remarkable.

    I also can save so much money my children will be trust fund kiddies if I wish it. Or I will retire 30 years earlier.

    I'm surprised to see this because I had a falling out like this. But you probably never heard that these jobs were comfy.
    What happened was that I worked directly for a CEO as an intern in college. Which opened enough doors that for the rest of my working life I was always answering to executives. I was young and the pressure was so high. But mainly the job just consumed my life.
    Long story short I ended up joining the army basically on an impulse. Which I wouldn't suggest doing. But I wanted to turn my brain off for a while and kind of disappear. I got what I wanted, but I'm getting over it. I will never go back to finance though. Lately I've been thinking of teaching high school.

    I’d say programming is the most interesting of the office drone careers you can do. But in reality for most workers it is an office drone career. For 6 or seven or eight hours a day, it’s you alone at a desk with the computer. I feel some regret I did not choose a more people-focused or physical-world-activity-focused career.

    Once you get the hang of it, it’s like doing schoolwork. Not a terrible mental burden. I had a lot harder of a time getting through upper level undergraduate math classes than anything I’ve come across in work.

    Also timelines are usually not do-or-die in my experience. You can leave work at work as long as you invest some effort every day.

It was great at first, i got to be more social, learn about clients and their processes, travel, and i got paid a whole lot more than lab work. But something happened after a few years where i just stopped socializing outside of work. It turns out that when you talk and listen for a living you don't want to do that when you're off the clock. After i quit i spent like 3 years not talking to anyone.
