Give it to me straight. How many hours of *hard* work do smart people do per week? And by hard work I mean stuff like mathematics / CS / physics / STEM academia (or even programmers outside of academia or smart people in general), which require stuff like mathematical knowledge, creativity, trial and error, the whole deal.
I see varying things. By default people say lots of work. But poincare did 4 hours a day of according to wikipedia. Marx worked from 9 to 7 at the british library and then more at home.
And when I think about the schedules of professors they always have lots of brainless shit in their schedules. This gives me hope. The chances of me focusing on one hard thing for more than 3 hours are remote.
