Mentality: working without feeling like you’re wasting your life

Sixteen year old Reddit user /u/69motherducker420 asked, “How can you work a 9-to-5 job, with only weekends and 4 weeks per year off, without getting the feeling of wasting your life?

The easiest answer is, “You can’t,” and link to the /r/antiwork subreddit, but that doesn’t really help anyone. I wanted to try to be more productive.

How can somebody be okay with working a 9-to-5 job, sitting in an office, and coming home just to do it again the next morning?
