Even a donkey works hard.
Compliance and hard work without assessing the situation, the alternatives is like working like a donkey.
I am not mocking donkeys. I think they do an amazing job, and their effor is leading on to some FAVOURABLE outcomes.
But the key word here is OUTCOME
Energy and time is not infinite, whenever we spend money we want some output. Either materialistic or some kind of pleasure.
Similar is our time and will power and brain. Limited resource.
Hard work is relevant in manual straight forward tasks. Sure, but with advent of machines hard work is becoming less and less relevant. I mean hard work alone is becoming less relevant.
Today, you can purchase a copy of Twitter website script in $20. Working hard to learn programming from scratch and building a script like that would nt be the best investment.
A better skill to have is to Write Off the paths that are rather longer and difficult. And rather choose the ones that are easier, interesting

They don’t question or go out of the status quo.
Mental health aspect to being subservient
Now, of course, not everyone and not everytime you need to think out of the box or do things differently just for the sake of being different.
But one cannot deny, the fact that this has led to feeling of lack of control of their lives to people who were schooled.
And once, that happens. The cases of depression, suicides go high.
