Damn, this is depressing.
But it’s the new reality. I’m sure glad I’m not young and just getting started in this mess, where everybody has to be out on the hustle 24 hours every day. In my lifetime I’ve seen the transition from one worker supporting a household with several kids to every adult having to have a full time job just to support (not very well) one child. Now “full time” is no longer enough. Every adult has to be on the hustle 24 by 7.
Has your productivity been improved by technology? Are you enjoying any benefit from that?
