I’m hear to argue that this is legitimately insane. … Read More
Annalise describes a fairly typical situation, and what goes through our minds when we try to decide whether to say anything at work: “Let’s take something as simple as, theoretically: “My therapist is booked because demand is so high. I … Read More
Look, it’s going to take some time, but eventually, it’s coming. We’ve only begun to have conversations around things like Universal Basic Income, or free healthcare, and restructuring the economy. Many, if not most, people are against these things, because they don’t fit with the current world, and frankly, if I thought the world was going to stay the same, I might agree that some of these ideas are probably taking things to far. But, what are we going to do when we simply don’t need as many workers?

The reason that I say this is because not a day goes by that I don’t hear someone talking about “getting back” to onsite visits with clients, and doing training, or even CLEs in person again, without taking a moment to consider whether that is even feasible for the client.
