“Work seems to have taken on an almost religious-like meaning, where the ethos of happily grinding it out most hours of most days is thought of as “good” and “just”. As a result, we feel guilt and shame if we aren’t working, or aren’t working enough.” – Paul Jarvis
Do we have to love our work? We start by talking about the pressure of today’s “passionate work” mantra. We also discuss how to ask for and get what you want, and how to be more productive using a virtual assistant.
