Time doesn't change. People do.
Updated: Jul 25, 2018
When I hear "Times have changed", I shake my head. People change. Time is constantly moving forward. Don't justify something by using the "Times have changed" message, because it holds little weight. Our minds & actions have changed.
Watching a recent Gary Vaynerchuk interview, his guest said, in a defeatist, resigned tone, "If you work, you live." He didn't mean if you work, you live with purpose & satisfaction. In context, he meant that if you work, you survive this world. This is a sad truth. How did we get here?
We now look down on those who we believe do not have a strong work ethic, defined by how many hours they spend working, or hard they 'hustle'.
I compare my family's life in the 80s to the life we are trying to lead now.
In the 80's
Lego & toy cars
Savings in the bank
Oh, we were so happy.
Netflix (or Hulu, Foxtel, Amazon etc)
Mobile phone contract
Endless online shopping options
Groceries + organic food
Don't know what saving is
Oh, the pressure!
