Work-life balance #

Some thoughts:

  • Work-life balance is important and hard to get right.
  • It’s most important across long timescales, like months and years and decades and lifetimes.
  • It’s important for work to be rewarding and challenging but not all-consuming.
  • Having an interesting and meaningful job is a privilege that a vanishingly small fraction of all humanity have been able to experience.
  • Paul Graham, the one and only, who keeps writing these culture wars style essays these days, with a take I really don’t agree with.
