"Is doesn't have to be crazy at work" by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson

Text Overview

In 'It Doesn't have to be crazy at work' a bold strategy is revealed for creating the ideal work culture by attacking the chaos, anxieties and stress we are all faced with at times.

The answer to better productivity isn't more hours - it's less waste and fewer things that induce distraction and persistent stress. It's time to stop celebrating 'Crazy' and start celebrating 'Calm'. This text will surely spark some brilliant discussions.
