Do you experience any social pressure to do things that are more productive?
So we have free time. We might tinker in the garage and invent a more comfortable shoe or a device that cuts energy use in half. Or we might doodle around on a piano or we might go out and spend all our free time gambling or drinking or having sex.
In a free country, it’s your choice. Gamble away your money, or watch TV or play video games or make music or art or invent something that might change many people’s lives.
Do you experience any pressure to be an inventor instead of a game player? What form does that pressure take? Does it make you change your behavior at all?
Do you ever pressure anyone else to be more “productive?” Do you pressure yourself? In what way do you do these things?
