The perception of a hard worker is slowly killing us
In a previous life working in industry I received emails at strange hours
00.02 and 05.56
Why do I remember these times exactly?
Cause I remember thinking when do these people get to rest 😊
We choose the environments in which we work and we also choose
How much work we agree to take on
The culture in many companies is the more I take on and complete
The quicker I progress
The problem is fuelling such long hours has health implications
Potentially less sleep, sugary food consumption and lots of caffeine to keep topping energy levels
We need to flip the script and change this culture
It’s the quality within the hours of work that counts
We help ensure that people perform to the max within reasonable working hours
As a result the need for ridiculous hours is eliminated

I hope you have that Friday feeling!
