Let me give you the cliff notes version to save you the palm in face reaction to reading this.
Nick takes a job at Whole Foods, he doesn't like his work schedule and pay.
For most people, that insight would have resulted in them quitting in about two weeks. It took Nick years.
Let me get the clue phone ringing for Nick. When the owners of Whole Foods started the company, the mission statement didn't begin with "We need to hire Nick and pay him what he wants and give him the schedule that works for him".
I'm guessing that he's figured it out, but I still have my doubts.
