Aman, this is a fantastic article with too many great insights to point out.
I’ve run my own freelance business for 17 years, and that for me is how I’ve always been out of the 9–5 “work prison”. All of these points you make are precisely why the freelance lifestyle is becoming more and more popular.
You shined light on some interesting perspectives that I think most people don’t consider enough in their own lives. Which is quite surprising given how much of our lives are taken up by work!
The good news is, so many of these things can be improved if we’re all willing to take the risk to make something better.
