There is a time and place for this. It's when you really NEED to work one or two more years until you can afford to retire. Anybody younger than that who dreads going to work should be putting as much effort into job hunting as if he was unemployed.

A friend once had thoughts of becoming a professional fisherman after he won a $14,000 boat in a fishing tournament. So he spent a summer working tournaments while keeping his day job. He gave up the idea after seeing how many of the professional fishermen were sleeping in the backs of their cars because they could not afford motel rooms.
