There’s a conventional attitude toward work that entails leaving everything you do outside of work behind, as though nothing else exists. With this perspective, you are encouraged to fit your family, your morals, yourself, around the job.
I was raised that way. As an elementary school kid, if I had to call my mom at work she’d answer the call in a hushed tone, as though she was receiving an illicit phone call. Her office was not interested that her 10-year-old needed to be picked up from school, let alone that she had kids at all.

by David Weinstein, Senior VP at Dana Investment Advisors
Many of us were sitting around the dinner table at Thanksgiving or Christmas and someone youngish started talking about blockchain cryptography. They probably called it something different though: “crypto,” “bitcoin,” maybe something about a “doge”-coin? Breathless talk of massive returns may have followed, without the mention of risk. A cult leader would be impressed by the level of evangelism.
