Re: New TECHWR-L Poll Question
My job is an enabler.
Now that I think about it...I'm saddened to think that so many people define
themselves by what they do for a living.
Point (and joke) taken.
Still, as widespread as the division between work and personal time is - as necessary as it often it - I don't think it psychologically healthy.
As for people defining themselves by their work, that shouldn't be the only criterion, but it's a major one. Work is a third of most people's lives, and about half their waking lives for much of the week. While these fractions are a vast improvement over past conditions - or those of the Third World sweat shops - they are still far too large for me to want to waste them - or myself - unless I'm driven by sheer survival.
I know, I know: I'm talking Utopia. But still I persist in wondering what would happen if more people questioned these givens in our lives.
