The book is a fascinating read exploring the modern work culture's addiction to "productivity" in a world where creativity reigns supreme. We have come to believe that the only answer is doing more, and doing more better and faster, only to continually find ourselves coming up short or crashing and burning. This book takes a step back to look at:
- why as a culture we are obsessed with productivity
- how the global financial crisis surreptitiously led to a culture of overwork that's at odds with being creative
- the beliefs that are so ingrained in us we never thought to question them
- how creativity is increasingly the most important skill to have in a world where all tasks can be done cheaper by someone else (whether it be by software, a robot, or three people in a lower cost country than yours)
...all the while confronting you with evidence that pushes you to (1) examine your own beliefs about work and (2) to ask yourself whether you and your team are on the path that will bring out the best in you or just more hours of your time.
I hope you get as much out of it as I did
This is a must read for entrepreneurs and creatives who want to keep their flame lit. Also makes a perfect gift to share with the go-getters in your life!
