I had an interesting discussion with a friend of mine about business hours. Already, some people can work when the want and that’s great. Some people work better between 8-12am and other between 12-4pm and again others like to work late at night. I think that in the future more people are able to work when they want and that will be interesting.
I think that after some threshold local businesses will adapt this behavior. This is simple game theory.
This is a typical Coordination game and quite intuitive. Only when both parties agree on a convention both will be in an equilibrium.
However, it’s quite interesting because as soon as businesses adapt to this new situation they will have a competitive advantage, i.e. 24/7 customer support. This will in turn lead other businesses adopting the new convention. Voilà, and there’s a Tipping Point scenario.

You’ve lost your job? You are failing in School?
Stop crying! Start working!
In the long-run, self-pity never helped anyone. In my opinion, it’s worsening the situation. If you act pessimistically people will refrain from you. Why? Most people have enough problems for themselves. They don’t want to bear your problems, too.
At the moment you may think of all the bad that have befallen you. You may decided that you have to wait. You have to think about your problems and why they have happened. You have to.
I can’t and I won’t force you to change your situation. I can only give you some advice and I think that the future is more important than the past. You can change your future every second. This isn’t possible with the past. The future gives us the opportunity to improve our life.
I think that one can achieve everything that she/he wants. It’s one of my principles. Believe in yourself.
Stop crying, start working!
