The Postgrad Survival Guide is a Medium publication focused on Millennial Work, Money and Life Advice. The publication publishes daily advice on work, freelancing, money, and life.
Why do we work? What is the purpose of work apart from providing us with money to buy stuff we don’t need and pay bills?
Is it possible to be happy and fulfilled in our daily work, or are we destined to despise, yet endure its demands on our lives?
Sure, we need money in our pockets to function within the societal system, but most of us it seems, are dissatisfied and disengaged .
Modern society has turned human beings into commodities, resources that can be manipulated for commercial and corporate financial gain. All efforts at making the workplace better have been driven by commerce with one end in mind — to make more money. We are schooled by the system to be pawns for the machine from an early age, and we believe in its validity.
