My Take

My Take
The format of a My Take is 150 words – no more, no less – to express an opinion on a different topic each week. This week’s topic was work/life balance.

By Matthew McCully


Bare minimum Monday, where the height of privilege meets the peak of ignorance.

If you need directions, just head towards the bottom of the barrel.

Feeling too tired from following your bliss all weekend to give Monday your all?

What ever happened to going to bed early to be well-rested and ready to go to work?

Any job worth doing is worth doing well.

You know what that means?

Anyone that can get away with just scraping by at a job will likely find out, sooner than later, that the job would not be missed.

I know employees are holding all the cards right now, but this isn’t Monopoly, this is life.

There’s no getting out of jail free, so if you’re thinking about deliberately reducing your own capacity in the name of self-care, just put yourself in the shoes or your dentist or surgeon.
