And this is a big reason why I keep trying to be an entrepreneur.

Because if I become a normie and get a "Real Job", the optimal strategy is to slack off as much as possible without getting fired. Because the workplace meritocracy is all bullshit. Your employer has a HUGE financial incentive to pay you as little as possible and your effort won't change that.

And I just can't not care about my work like that. I want to spend my work time doing something I actually care about.


Also, this oldie goldie from SMBC really fits in here.
