          There definitely needs to be a line drawn when it comes to work life balance. Just because I don't want to work '996' hours, doesn't mean I am a 'strawberry'. I just know the difference between being exploited and working hard... Am I wrong?

              Can't blame them, thye live in an era where hard work are largely compensated with better returns and follow a pretty simple script for a fulfilling life. Now, the younger generations (being exposed to globalisation) are looking forward to a lot more than the normal narrative of graduate-career-marry-house-kids.

              It's due to this that people are getting more and more demotivated to work as hard as they (foolishly) thought it as a hindrance to them achieving the life they actually wanted.

                      What's wrong with being unwilling to work too hard? We work smart.
