Does your job suck? Here are some tips on how make the most of it and how to know when to get out.

"Never go for medium profession…Literary writers should have a menial job or (if possible) a sinecure, and write on the side. Otherwise writing for a living under other people’s standards debases their literature. The same for artists. The best philosophers were not academics, but had another job, so their philosophy was not corrupted by careerism."
