Especially in technology many professionals owe their job security to a "fire department" philosophy. They are hired to address any problem that comes up. When things are going smoothly, job can be boring.

Of course that makes time for coffee breaks. And some read books, or comics, surf the internet, or chat with friends.

Checking out developing technologies, training for new responsibilities, safety, etc, etc, are good uses of that time.

We all face the day when skills are out of date. Keeping current with new developments in your field is up to you.
