“Perfectionism is not a quest for the best. It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough.”
Christine Carter, The Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work

“working more than 40 hours a week was stupid, wasteful, dangerous, and expensive—and the most telling sign of dangerously incompetent management to boot,” Robinson writes. Further, more than a hundred years of research shows that “every hour you work over 40 hours a week is making you less effective and productive over both the short and the long haul.” Really!

This common sense is so widely ignored that overwork—and the problems with health, happiness, and productivity that it brings—is epidemic.”
