employers can definitely be the culprits, but in my experience (and in this space), _employees_ often pressure themselves just as much, if not more. always-connected, interrupt-driven tech probably also drives a big chunk of it. [i’ve thought about that problem a bit](https://snarfed.org/2013-05-31_fighting-information-overload), but not re work specifically.
one question: how do you and erin work right now? i’d love to be wrong, but i’m guessing you both work a bit harder than you’ve outlined here…? do you think there’s a different standard for very early stage startups? or for founders? or something else?
