I always wonder about myself and others being distracted by the market while at work. I imagine if everyone that did, just invested in an S&P 500 index then concentrated on working better and getting promotions and raises, then put that extra money back into the index, they would do far better than they are now!

I'm not actually tracking the market or anything at work... at most I'll look up a stock real quick, and I just listen to the show when I'm doing something mindless to keep my mind occupied.

I would bet most people are more confident in their investments paying off than they are in that extra work providing a measureable return. Of course, there's a lot more stability in a career than there is with investments and when it comes to paying the bills, stability is an invaluable asset. :)
