I used to sit at the computer all day long effectively working only 3-4 hours/day because otherwise I would feel guilty for not working hard enough.
And I thought I was the only one. Problem with me is: I am not working alone but have employees. If I work effectivly I can get my work done in 3-4 hours but usually I drag it out to 8 hours because I would feel kind of guilty leaving at noon. On the other hand I know I am wasting vast parts of my life this way. My parents and a lot of relatives where self employed too and so I was brought up with the notion of: "Be the first in the morning and the last to leave in the evening."
