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.

Introduction

When did the world get so crazy about work?

It seems like all of a sudden working 70 hours per week is a badge of honor instead of a sign of madness.

Companies are even starting to call themselves your family, whatever that means.

What we need amid this mess of mixed priorities and skewed work-life balance is a reminder of what really matters. We need a way to get back to rationality.

Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson are the founders of web-based software development firm Basecamp.

In It Doesn't Have to Be Crazy at Work, Fried and Hansson explore how to make the most of your time at work without losing your sanity.
