I’ve been excited to go to South Korea for a long time. First, I love the food (for those who haven’t tried it, you will too). Second, the country has had this amazing story forming around work. Rocket ship economic growth… but it hasn’t been without it’s growing pains.
The major lesson that emerged from my time Working Around the World in South Korea, was pressure. What happens when you can do more? You’re talented enough – the opportunity is there – but by taking hold of it, your life starts being overtaken by pressure.
My hope is this lesson sheds light on the topic. Also, offers you more context for what work is like all around the world. Enjoy!
