Curated by Timoni West.
Primarily focused on product design, technology, cognitive psychology, and the brain. Also—pretty pictures, sometimes moving.
Embedded in the work harder, earn more ethos is an unspoken, unhealthy and inaccurate implication: suffering (working “hard”) is equivalent to value creation.
The problem here is not-so-much in that it forces people to work more than they need to, although that is unhealthy and damaging in itself. The real crime here is that this belief obscures what is truly important in earning more: creating tangible value in the world and having a bigger impact.
I don’t agree with Mayer about everything, but I agree about this.
