It depends very much on the job, but I go through phases of being very focussed and compeltely demotivated. Also I bend the rules.

My current workplace is he best I've ever been in and my work is at its best too. This is because they do NOT care how I get my work done as long as I get it done, on time, properly. I am able to apply myself to acheiving the organisations goals in my own way, as a result, I'm able to take responsibility for the outcome rather than constantly being "guided" through the "process". Some days I take lots of breaks, but I now how long it takes to get stuff sorted and I spend another hour to half an hour at the end of the day making sure all the needs of the position are met. My bosses are very flexible with me. They also expect me to step up when the shit hits the fan. I have no problem with this reciprocity.

What's unusual about all this is that I'm not self-employed. I'm an administrator for the public sector in the UK.
