Wayfair’s CEO has an end-of-year message for employees of the online furniture company: Don’t shy away from doing more work and blending your work with your life.

“Winning requires hard work. I believe that most of us, being ambitious individuals, find fulfillment in the joy of seeing our efforts materialize into tangible results,” CEO Niraj Shah said in a note to employees earlier this month celebrating the company’s recent success, and which a company spokesperson confirmed to CNN. “Working long hours, being responsive, blending work and life, is not anything to shy away from. There is not a lot of history of laziness being rewarded with success.”

    Bitch, I don’t give a shit about “winning”. I will show up for my shift, I’ll give 100% while I’m there, but at 5:00 PM sharp, I’m out the door.

    Life’s too short to spend it slaving away for some rich fucker.

      You’re better than me. I’ll show up for my shift, give like…50% and then leave.

      edit: But never at a detriment to my team. I’ll give 150% to support my team. But otherwise, which is typical, we all just give 50%ish.
