A recent study found that toiling outside of regular -to- hours undermines people's intrinsic motivation for their professional and academic pursuits.
This spells trouble for companies considering that (a) people do their best work and are happier when they're fueled by an inner drive (b) surveys show that employees especially working parents want to work for companies that allow as much flexibility as possible.
Longstanding conventions about when we should or shouldn’t be working are not easily cast aside
Working nonstandard hours often means that you’re working alone and research from the University of Chicago has shown that people are more intrinsically motivated to work when they have the sense that other people are working even if those people are not in the same room.
Researchers surveyed participants to determine how people felt about working on the Monday of a long weekend versus a normal Monday, to see how motivated people felt working a holiday versus a regular day, and to figure out what was generally on people's minds while working holidays.
On holidays, it turned out that people were "almost automatically," thinking about all the places they could be instead, which helped researchers see the connection to the psychology of regret.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
