Hey Tom, agree totally on this one. It’s the only way I get any work done in between school drop offs and pick ups.
Society has such a warped view of what success is. It’s ridiculous that many workplaces see people working overtime as a good thing — rather than the fact their workers have too much on their plate — or aren’t productive.
Less is certainly more. It’s not fun slaving away until we get too old to enjoy our leisure time. So yeah, I’m with you Tom. I say we make it a priority today!
Thanks for sharing Cal’s book. Love it.
One you might like that I’m reading is called “Peak: Secrets from the new science of expertise”. It talks about deliberate practice. So we don’t just practice stuff for the sake of it, but practice the right stuff to get better at it. This would go well with having more leisure time :)
Cheers for a well-writtten, inspiring article Tom!
