I don’t disagree with you, but like (almost everything) in this world, it’s all about balance. I’ve spent many years working, grinding, creating, hustling and often suspect that I’ve missed out on some fantastic conversations with great people (in bars or otherwise).
Like you I’m a huge proponent for creating great art/something that lives longer than me. “I wish I hadn’t worked so hard is one of the top 5 regrets of the dying.”
So cheers to working our asses off, but also finding time to spend with people we love and care, to practice gratitude, to give back, and to savor this short life.
