It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work

Overview

When did the world get so crazy about work? It seems like all of a sudden working 70 hours a week is a badge of honor instead of a sign of insanity. Not only that, but companies are starting to call themselves your family, whatever that means.

What we need amid this mess of mixed priorities is a reminder of what really matters. We need a way to get back to rationality. That's what Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, founders of Basecamp, are here to do with their book It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work.

Favorite Quote

"What's worse is that long hours, excessive busyness, and lack of sleep have become a badge of honor for many people these days. Sustained exhaustion is not a badge of honor, it's a mark of stupidity."

Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson
