It’s no surprise we all have plenty of time to pick up new languages, learn new dances, pick up coding, and build elaborate backyard lounge areas these days…
But not everyone wants to be productive all the time.
Let’s face it, after a hard day of working, the last thing you probably want to do is stretch yourself even further. The idea of putting in more work to learn or do something tedious is just too much sometimes.
And you know what? That’s OK, that’s human — don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
