You’ve probably heard of the badge of busy
Maybe you’re even wearing it right now? It’s when you wear and communicate your busyness as a badge of honor - valuing a fully booked schedule over intentional time for yourself and loved ones. We often think that busyness and productivity go hand-in-hand, but the truth is, that taking time off is one of the most overlooked tools we have to stimulate creativity, innovation, and focus, not to mention well-being. So, when was the last time that you intentionally took some time off?
On this episode, Deloitte chief well-being officer Jen Fisher talks with John Fitch and Max Frenzel, co-authors of the book Time off and luminaries in the art and science of why we all need to create a rest ethic that matches our work ethic.
In the future of work, where we're all artists, [you’ll] see these micro-practices of time off as upskilling yourself for what's left for us humans as the machines execute the mundane much more effectively.
– John Fitch, co-author of the book Time Off
