It’s frightening how many friends I speak to who have this reaction precisely: work is so dull, boring as usual, I would rather jump off a cliff. I find it especially true of software companies where a majority of people hate their jobs because of the monotony.

A side hustle keeps people going, but those who can’t find the time for it because of family duties or other commitments often pine away from the drudgery of their work.
