Looked at another way, once you’ve reached your peak, the summit, where the view is spectacular, “there’s no way to go but down”. Any subsequent step you take will be slightly lower. So we all try to “hang on as best we can”. And most of us do pretty well unless outside circumstances change things substantially.

luv4horses, don't even TRY to rain on my parade!

At this point, I am going to demand my coworkers award me my Resse's Peanut Butter Cup.

If you side wide me, I'll share with you!

Admittedly I was addressing the phrase rather than the original post.

Whether or not a person can coast at the end of their workday has mostly to do with the type of work.

Some of us are doing similar activities all day long. You hit the first hour hard while you are waking up or readjusting from what you do earlier. Toward the end of the day you are working just as hard but you have hit a rhythm so mentally it’s easier and more automatic to keep going. You relax and look forward to afterwards. In that case it’s not “all downhill” but rather “smooth sailing” that last hour or two.

Others arrive at work planning one thing but something else shows up on top of it. Part of the day is used getting rid of paperwork. Or correct mistakes by you or your team. Part is used devising solutions for current and future needs/problems. Toward the end of the day you must push hard to meet a deadline or overcome a momentary crisis. When you leave for the day you might worry about whether you did things right. The day is constant ups and downs. And stays with you mentally when you leave for the day.

luv4horses, good morning.

You know what?... I work in a JAIlL, and actually love my job, so in the big picture, Uphill?/Downhill?.... It doesn't matter

There are so many people unhappy in their jobs/careers, and I am not. So I am just going to feel blessed in that!

For the most part, there is no HILL to my day!
