“Free yourself from the trappings of traditional American productivity culture,” D’Orazio says. “Instead, try to accept that how we work might always be different from this moment forward. And that we’re all still trying to figure everything out. … You aren’t alone.”
I struggled with this concept at first, maybe I still do. I kept thinking of the situation as temporary and so I didn’t put the work into fully adjusting to it. Now I’m starting to realize that this radical shift might have permanent effects and I need to start learning to live my life fully in this crazy new world. Thanks for the insightful article!
