In this video by Mike Rowe, he explains how and why America has a dysfunctional relationship with work. While I don’t want to believe that is the case for everyone, the point he makes about most people just wanting to take shortcuts these days is a valid point in my opinion. Shortcuts are attractive. He mentions the book, The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss as an example of people being attracted to that and since it is next on my reading list and it has been on every bestsellers list out there, that even furthered my interest into what Mike was saying in this video. Is it really true that people have lost touch with working hard to become successful in life and have traded in hard work for taking shortcuts?
