Remember when you didn’t have to go backpack a developing country to disconnect from work?
You could just drive home.
Pings are your lifeblood now. Your phone notifications are gaming you, FYI.
Responding to work emails is your new measure of success or failure. It’s all quite Pavlovian.
We’re on. ALL-THE-TIME. At least, those of us who care.
It’s the new world of work. Embrace it. It’s not changing.
The digital presence has replaced the physical presence, and there’s more work in our phones than there are friends. 10 emails to every 1 friend text, last time I counted.
It can make it easy to connect, I suppose. Depends on what you want to be connected to.
Our personal and work lives are intrinsically intertwined, so find something that gives you meaning, something that you’re excited about when you wake up in the morning- find purpose in your work.
Because the alternative is, that sinking gut feeling, like an allergic reaction.
