The Burnout Economy, the Last Blimp Pilot and Tourette’s in a PC World
Is there anyone who isn’t at least a little burnt out? I hate to be the type to rail against those gosh darn millennials (though, I am more Gen Z myself), but when our parents would come home exhausted and miserable from another day of decades of working nonstop, I don’t think they classified it as a generational syndrome. But maybe they just simply didn’t have a word for it. Today, though, we have a whole slew of books and services dedicated to combating burnout. Yet can any of this actually change our culture’s fundamental problems around work, or do I just need a vacation?
