"Individualistic cultures, which emphasise achievement over affiliation, help cultivate this time-is-money mindset." - "Why is everyone so busy?," in The Economist, December 21, 2014. Here is that article.
Unless there is a client emergency, many lawyers tend to be idle on Christmas Day. That means a shut-down of the time-is-all-about-money ethos. Instead they will be forced to seek out affiliation. Oh, it could seem ready-made, as with spouse and family around them.
But that hardly means the creation of the spirit of intimacy or even ability to connect. As a result, they may feel tormented by this lack. Horror: They experience loneliness.
However, that dark mood will lift soon enough. The roof on the client's hotel will collapse or a colleague will need help with a DUI. Then lawyers can return to a state of individualistic isolation in work. And all is right with the world.
