The Hamster Wheel

The Hamster wheel is easy to understand.
You channel all your resources, your time, $, towards reaching a goal.
Maybe it’s Instagram fame, or Spotify play numbers.

But you’re actually running in place.
And someone else is benefitting from the energy you put out.

The time you spend on the hamster wheel goes to them.
The advertisers, the tech overlords.

Now, here’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.

Maybe you don’t know about the hamster wheel and jump on it.
And then you discover it, (most likely because you crash and burn in some ways).

And then you see that others around you know about it.
But no one talks about it.
Maybe you find yourself silent along with them.

Ask yourself why.
