Working three jobs leaves me with very little free time, so on my days off, I make time to binge-watch all the TV shows I've missed out on during the week. While I prefer to relax on my days off, others still manage to put in a full day's work even though they don't have to.

For Redditor Picko_11, he spends his days off fiddling with side projects in his workshop. Recently, he was able to build an awesome coffee table for his living room…in just one day.

Picko_11 began by measuring and cutting some pieces of wood to his desired dimensions.

If Picko_11's hard work and determination are anything to go by, I need to increase my work ethic during my next day off.
