you don’t have to do your laundry but you do have to do this

September 7, 2019

You’re going to have to do laundry again next week, even though you just did it a few days ago. And then after that, you’ll have to do it again. And again. And again. Until you die.

Well, maybe not. If you make a shit ton of money you can pay someone to do your laundry for you. You could also make enough money to have a personal assistant, your own chef, a personal trainer, a chief of staff, even a spokesperson.

But one thing you’ll never be able to buy your way out of is managing you. There are duties to attend to, impulses to control, and values to uphold that only you can be responsible for. Better yet, even if you succeed today you’ll have to wake up, get out of bed, and do the same exact thing tomorrow.
