Wow, am I busy!
Lots of people wear their busy-ness like a badge. If you went to college, you probably have had a few “well, I slept less than you” contests. For many of us, the work world isn’t much different. I’ve heard stories about people trying to better themselves by making sure their car is in the parking lot on Saturday earlier than the other guy.
While most of us are more subtle than that, lots of us derive a lot of personal value out of how much we work. Or if it’s not the number of hours, it’s how efficient we are.
Do you identify with that good portion of American society that derives a lot of your personal feeling of worth out of what you accomplish at work? Do you think it’s a good measure of human value? If not, what alternatives would you propose?
Because at the end of this annual major deadline I’m up against, work is all I can think about. I’ll enjoy sharing time and beverages with you at Gray’s when it’s all over.
