The Protestant Work Ethic Does’t Work.

In a culture where work can be a religion, burnout is its crisis of faith.

Another good read is “The Latham Diaries“. Whilst Mark Latham has damaged the Australian Labor Party more than their political opponents, he does detail a personal crisis. The institution that built him in his work life ultimately destroyed him. Yeah, Mark was a bit of a bloke’s bloke in a poisonous profession – but the personal toll led him to leave.

Another quote: happiness equals reality divided by expectations.

I know it is a bit rich coming from someone who is working part-time, at best: but I feel it must be said.

Time does not go backwards. Remember that.
