Just finished “It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work” (Fried & Hansson, 2018). It was a swift and short read about the price we pay while working long hours under impossible deadlines and sketchily defined goals while pursuing that golden business growth at all costs.

The most striking chapter describes how we can't get work done at work anymore. Offices have become these sick places of pervasive distraction where days are split between running from one meeting to another completely preventing a flowing state of mind. It doesn't help working remote either since we are constantly being barraged by messages in Slack and other team chats screaming for our immediate response.

I recognize some of the symptoms described here at my current workplace though in overall we're doing good.

Let's make this a challenge. Read this book and then pass it to your manager.
