He wants to establish the concept of “Leave it alone” as a self-care strategy. “You don’t quit your job, but you give up the idea of doing more than you have to. You still fulfill your duties, but you no longer follow the way people think. Riot“A culture that work should be your life.” The video was released last July, apparently saying what many young people are thinking.
