9–5 is not working hard. My day started at 6am + ended at 10pm.

Apparently meeting with professional connex to watch and discuss Ted Talks is an opportunity to victimize your sob story.

Nonetheless, I stayed and observed.

We gather around, watch some videos then everyone gets on their soap box and theorizes about said topic.

Today’s happened to be on leadership. A topic I love to discuss. Not I love to discuss with amongst non-doers.

Nothing will make you want to eat your hat more than hearing someone use the platform as their personal therapy sesh (as referenced above) and at the end of it, saying they “work too hard” after they just got done telling you they have nights and weekends off from said 9–5.

Meanwhile, I…
