In addition to the fact that I will probably work 50+ hours a week, I also work for myself. I have a great team of self-aware employees that help me in any way they can. This means we automate things so we can save time and feel more in control. While we do help other people out, we do not do it for the money. We do it because we like to work.
Although we do not do it for the money, we do it because we like to work. The reason we like to work is because it feels like we are working for ourselves. You are not getting 50% of your paycheck that you worked for 50 hours a week. You are getting 50% of your paycheck that you worked the best you could to get. And you do that work for the love of it and for your own happiness.
We are not automatons. We are engineers. We are the ones who do the work, not the machines. We are the ones who are the ones who have the skills to do it. The point with automatons is that they are automatons because they do not feel like they are part of the machine. They feel like they are part of a team. They believe that they are part of something bigger. Humans are not automatons. We are not automatons.
