This confirms what I’ve know for some time, our culture of overwork is just plain lazy…
Charles Darwin was a “slacker” who worked only 4 hours a day and regularly napped. Darwin did some Epic Shit in his life… he made a difference.
All that “life hacking”, “how to sleep for 3 hours a night”, “speed reading a book a day” and “Japanese in 30 minutes a day”… it doesn’t work.
As author Michael Lewis puts it, people waste years trying not to waste hours…
Perhaps 50 hour work weeks aren’t the answer after all.
So, as the original Chuck D says…adapt or die.
Time to step off the merry-go-round of busyness. Engage in Deep Work.
