There are times when work is, well ... a lot of work! The stress of important deadlines or goals can be overwhelming at times. Sometimes the "daily grind" can also have a sapping effect on overall productivity. How can we reverse this trend? By goofing off at work, of course! For some, this might sound counterintuitive because the institution of "hard work = success" has been a mainstay for decades. Although hard work does get the job done, the satisfaction of employees cannot be lost in the conversation. Software development can be a very mentally exhaustive profession. Developer burnout is a real topic that should not be ignored or avoided.
