Let's stop romanticising the 'hustle'

I see it all the time: people talking about how many hours overtime they do, how they don't get any sleep because they're too busy working, how they have so many jobs and they work their arses off. 

If you need to work that much to survive, well done for managing it and trying to look at it in a positive light. But being exploited by your workplace or living in an economy where full-time work isn't enough to live off isn't something to be proud of. Being more sleep deprived than the next person doesn't make you better than them. Taking on extra work and then "complaining" to everyone about it so they know how good you are at working is ridiculous.

There's nothing wrong with a good work ethic but so many people are treated like crap by their employers and then pride themselves on never missing a day/taking a holiday/saying no to extra hours.

It shits me too because heaps of people like this go home to their partners/families etc and treat them poorly because they're too overworked to engage in real relationships.

You're not winning at life if you're working 80hrs a week and never having fun.
