Work takes up a significant portion of your life. To me, it is something we should always be examining, if we care about our lives.
This is especially the case during this pandemic. I think we all have been examining work as a result of it. as a result of how we have had our working lives disrupted. That’s a good thing.
I expect employers are going to want us to resume working as if it were the Before Times. Maybe you are one of those employees who wants to go back to that time. Maybe you aren’t.
All that is to say that I recommend you read these two pieces as you reexamine your work life:
- Opinion | It’s Time to Stop Living the American Scam – The New York Times
- Opinion | ‘Lying Flat’: Tired Workers Are Opting Out of Careers and Capitalism – The New York Times
We sometimes need prompts to help us think about things. Those two pieces will help with that.
Thinking about your work life is thinking about your life in general. A worthwhile thing to do.
