Working Hard, or Hardly Worth It?

Heroics again.

IRL, I'm fighting a bundle of management-set schedules that have no relation to reality. However, I am remaining steadfast in my determination to not work overtime. Since I was not consulted as to effort when these deadlines were set, I hold that I am not responsible for the work.

Now, many will take the stance that I am being unprofessional by not working my best towards this deadline. I point to the studies that show that prolonged excess working hours lead to shoddy work. Anecdotal evidence like this also support the stance.

So when I am dragged into an unrealistic schedule, I hold to regular work hours.
