After being held in captivity for too long, animals released into the wild tend to die due to starvation or attack. They no longer know how to hunt for their own food or use their claws to fend off predators.
Are humans who’ve worked a day job all their lives like the animals we see at the zoo? Is the zoo keeper who brings out a bail of hay every day, the employer who cuts a bi-weekly paycheck? From what I’ve observed since leaving Corporate America in 2012, it sure seems that way.
When you’re guaranteed a paycheck every month, unless you’re making minimum wage, there’s a natural tendency to stop thinking about other ways to make more money. Why do you think companies tend to cull older employees who no longer have the desire to hustle? I need all of you guys to guard against getting soft!
