Take my advice and stop using Rubik's Cubes to prove your intelligence

Several of my bosses thought my "downtime" a waste of resources and wanted me to use if for their "useful" unrelated tasks.

They didn't understand that technical consultants live off the fat of their experience. That has to be renewed in their down-time - otherwise they eventually become out of touch and lose their edge

To hit the ground running in an emergency takes constant practice where a misstep isn't a fatal failure.
