Why You Need To Stop Working All The Time

Why You Need To Stop Working All The Time | Productivity - fighting the chaos | Scoop.it
“Overwork has become a credential of prosperity.” This line from a recent James Suroweicki piece in The New Yorker struck me like a bell.
Sue Rizzello's insight:

Overworked people (especially those who feel they have no choice but to do those long office hours or else) aren't productive, they are simply pooped. But the responsibility for fixing this lies with individuals, as well as companies. Demonstrable high productivity shines from some employees regardless of hours - we need to make this a personal goal and a winning career formula across the board.
