Gen Z needs to stop “bed rotting,” says one NYU business professor. Bed rotting is pretty self-explanatory. It is when you stay at home and ruin your chances for success in life.
“You should never be at home,” said Scott Galloway. “That’s what I tell young people. Home is for seven hours of sleep, and that’s it…. The amount of time you spend at home is inversely correlated to your success professionally and romantically. You need to be out of the house.”
Evidence does suggest that remote workers have many markers of lower success rates. They get less feedback and have fewer strong work relationships.
But Gen Z got soooooo cozy with remote work during the pandemic and their bed is soooo warm and cozy. According to Galloway, they’ve gotta stop that.
“If you expect to be in the top 10% economically… buck up. Two decades plus of nothing but work.”
