Naming a vague sense can bring our thoughts into focus. The phrase “quiet quitting” has done just that.
Zaid Kahn said in a TikTok video, “I recently learned about this term called quiet quitting, where you’re not outright quitting your job, but you’re quitting the idea of going above and beyond…You’re still performing your duties, but you’re no longer subscribing to the hustle culture mentality that work has to be your life. The reality is it’s not—and your worth as a person is not defined by your labor.”
Today, I’m writing for The Institute of Faith, Work & Economics, where you can read the rest of this article and learn more about quiet quitting and the post-pandemic zeitgeist.
