- On Hustle Culture
Erik discusses the concept of "hustle culture" and "hustle porn," which refers to people who glorify being busy and working long hours without actually being productive. He argues that the term "hustle porn" is too broad and stigmatizes all hard work, both productive and unproductive. Instead, we should distinguish between productive and unproductive forms of hard work. He also notes that society's attitudes towards self-sacrifice and hard work seem to be shifting, as seen in the different reactions to Michael Jordan's perseverance compared to Simon Biles withdrawing from competition for mental health reasons.
