Work can wait.

This post from “Matrix Agent” came across my Mastodon feed, and I couldn’t agree more:

there is NO reason any of us should have to “thrive in a fast paced environment” or “work well under pressure.” most of our daily work is not an emergency and our culture of fake urgency and immediacy just to make more profit for people in the c-suite is burning people out.

stop sending people into fight or flight and expecting them to bend over backward because you dont know how plan or manage resources properly

I often need to remind myself that most things at work are not worth stressing over. It doesn’t really matter if something is a little late and it’s definitely not worth your health. Work can wait.
