Quiet Quitting is Not Quitting

There is a term trending right now that provoked one of the best conversations I’ve had about the pandemic, the future of work, and wellbeing:  quiet quitting. As defined, it’s when workers decide to reject “hustle culture”.  It means doing just what’s expected and not going above and beyond. It means closing your laptop at 5 p.m. Spending more time with family. The stories are from teachers who won’t grade papers after hours. Programmers who stopped picking up extra tickets. For some it’s just letting go the guilt associated with putting other things before work.
