Yesterday, I had a town hall meeting at work where they recognized employees for their hard work. There was one man in particular that they really wanted to thank because he worked beyond work hours, got the job done, was always available, and he did it all with a smile on his face.
At that moment I realized our society rewards people who work rather than enjoy their free time, don’t go on vacations, neglect their families, and do it all without complaining, but with a smile on their faces.
With that realization I felt sick to my stomach. I never want to receive an award from any company.
