Where along the track was it decided that work and life should be seperate, with "life" being fun - where the good stuff happened - and work simply being the means to an end?

The industrial revolution, along with all the good stuff it has brought us, probably has a fair bit to answer for. Nevertheless, it has created a problem of tragic proportions. For many, the workplace is uninspiring at best and a form of purgatory at worst. Either way, if you are working in a job or running a business like that there is no way you are fulfilling your potential and that needs to change!
