One popular motto of our times is ‘Work hard. Party harder’.
We live in an era where it has never been easier for a young commoner to turn into a billionaire – one where that motto fits right in.
But ours is also an era with the highest rates of overwork and burnout. Even as we celebrate the rare unicorn entrepreneur, most of her burnt-out peers are neglected. Even as we cherish ambition, passion, hustling, sprinting and successful Series B’s, the periods of rest and recovery that enables us to do all of that is neglected.
That motto of our times is incomplete. It ought to read, ‘Work hard. Party harder. Sleep hardest.’
