Run, rabbit run.

Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done–
Don’t sit down. It’s time to dig another one.
I’ve done regular work. I’ve had a six figure salary. I’ve done cool things with official sanction. I’ve been the rabbit.
Today is another day, and I work another way, making more money without anyone to tell me what time to do this or that and without a boss to please with the exception of myself. The things I do are easily as interesting and the people and situations are challenging without being onerous. ¬†An obnoxious client’s bill is 3x what a nice client is charged and while clients are not usually treated this way, I can fire them just as easily as they can fire me.
And life is much better. I’m not a rabbit anymore.
