"We work feverishly to make ourselves happy. So why are we so miserable? Despite our constant search for new ways to "hack" our bodies and minds for peak performance, human beings are working more instead of less, living harder not smarter, and becoming more lonely and anxious. This manifesto helps us break free of our unhealthy devotion to efficiency and shows us how to reclaim our time and humanity with a little more leisure"--… (mais)

Our cult of ”busy” makes no sense on the surface. We have every convenience, microwaves, fast food, washing machines, and cell phones, but instead of having more time, consumerism increased in a parallel rise and so people worked longer hours just to pay for things they didn't need. We are in constant contact through social media, but we don't have time to meet friends for coffee, much less devote hours to a quilting circle or community club. It's a strange paradox and one that is leading to increased loneliness and suicide. The idea that multitasking is bad for you was so interesting. It's horrible for you brain because you're not giving anything your full attention. And women are taught that they should be "good" at it, so we work harder to constantly split our focus.

On tech creators like Steve Jobs not allowing his own children to use iPads, "Would you eat a meal that the chef wouldn't serve to his own family?"

We need to put our devices down & remember that work is not life. Such a good book!

“The idea is not that everything should be slower, but that not everything needs to be fast.” ( )

This book is a must read for all of us going ninety miles a minute day after day. The author stresses that you can be the best and accomplish all sort of things - if you just learn to slow down. the author has done her research, well, in fact, and provides great suggestions and solutions to lead a very productive, relaxing life. Highly recommend! ( )

I wish everyone where I work would read this book. Our culture of "always being on" isn't helpful to our creativity or our mission. People should learn to have lives outside of their job. That is what this book tackles: the need to cultivate a life and identity that is separate from your job. Headlee's prose is engaging, well supported by research, and thought provoking. ( )

Very thought provoking read about working too much and what that’s doing to us. It’s unfortunate that I figured out most of it through burnout at my job, but at least now I have researched reasons. I’m going to continue to refer back to it. ( )
