I am not remembering what it was that I was listening to that was hyping me up for not seeking fulfillment through my job. It wasn’t the recent book about 4K Weeks, it was something else.1

Luke Smith helped, but it wasn’t just him.2 Cal Newport and the Deep Life stuff also helped.

I’d like to pin down more what Cal Newport means by living the Deep Life, so I can better evaluate if it’s something I’d like to do. It feels similar to what I’d like and some of its motivation resonates with me, but idk yet.
