The forty hour work week should die already. It does not make any sense. I have read so many articles that most people are only productive for fifty percent of their work week. That’s scary and very true. Cut out the time allotment, pay people for their service and not for the hours and you will receive a better result, with happier staff.
I hear you on the writing front. I am so ingrained in the cog of life that the idea of risking it all to be a writer full-time is still not something that I can even wrap my head around. I am not even sure if that is something that I truly want.
All I really want is more flexibility, ownership and trust while I work.
