I'm going to pick on a story I saw in the Wall Street Journal, but only because it's typical of a whole genre of advice offered by rich and powerful people, most of them white men. It's a 2016 first-person essay by Brian Scudamore, the creator of 1-800-GOT-JUNK, called "Why This CEO Takes Every Friday Off."

Scudamore explains that he "recharges" on Fridays, and spends Mondays "just thinking." He offers this as career advice.
