The Company is not your family. The Company wants you to feel like it is family because the Company knows that you would fight to the ends of the earth for your family. Co-opting that drive benefits the Company, so the Company will offer you more money, recreation like video games, nice bean bag chairs that make you comfortable in the office. It’s a very enticing thing to see these distractions at the office, but these distractions are like Pleasure Island in Pinocchio. If you spend too much time working, whether it’s at the office or a working from home situation – tell me you haven’t worked more than 40 hours a week since the pandemic – you’ll find that you’ve become a jackass. Your family won’t recognize you, and you’ll need a lot of help fixing that.
Do your best work for the Company, but don’t overwork. The Company is not your family.
