We do it because it's the most visible form of productivity.
It is a way to prove to others that you are doing stuff and checking things off the list.
Hard work is necessary in order to be productive, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.
At some point, you start to be negatively productive.
It means scheduling your time according to your natural rhythms:
Acquire new skills that will help you get more things done in less time.
One reason we work too hard is that we are using that hard work to make up for a lack of courage.
Example: Instead of firing the team member who is dragging down the project, we work harder to make up for them. Firing them takes courage.
