It's not just you, life is uniquely designed to be tiring AF
I work for Kaiser now, so I am mired in peak complexity. I enjoyed your column! Keep fighting the good fight!
This is genius! No we humans weren’t made for all this constant communication and tedium! Give me a beach or mountain view and some peace and quiet. Maybe AI will help. Or not….
Thanks for your uncompromising voice. It is a beacon shining in the night dominated by privileged self-help and productivity gurus. By the way...what do you think about Getting Things Done by David Allen and Tiny Habits by BJ Fogg? I have not been able to tear those down.
Could not agree more...this, too re: the corporate evangelical
I’m genuinely sorry to hear abt the various issues you faced
They sound genuinely argh 😣
Love this! Really resonated with how I've been feeling about wellness & life.
I found this article from googling "why is modern life so complicated" haha! I think you hit the nail on the head. I feel much better!
I blame the Tech Geeks.
This is their New Religion.
Their new God.
They've mired the world in it with their dime-a-dozen computer science degrees.
And my sense is there will be backlash to the Techie Community over time.
Plenty of people have lost time and money over everything you've outlined and there's ALWAYS someone to blame....
