There’s the cultural messaging we’ve received our whole lives that putting in more hours and more effort ensures our success, even though discerning what to put your effort into is far more important than blanketing your life in hard work. The stats on overwork also show a huge risk to health.
Study shows us that we don’t change our minds even when given new, factual information that proves our previous beliefs wrong.
Dialing it back is smart for both our productivity and our health, we have trouble giving ourselves permission to do it.
Don’t gossip or tattletale about your colleagues or immediately approach leadership. Have an honest talk with your coworker that adheres to business etiquette rules. Most importantly ask questions to save yourself a lot of embarrassment.
