|A few weeks ago, we at Doodle Breaks had the pleasure of working with a high performing team of senior executives from one of the world’s leading information technology and networking companies.
Their challenge was implementing hyper productivity whilst managing work-life balance as successful senior executives.
They were exhausted. So much to do, little time for breaks, they were operating on overdrive just checking tasks off a list.
The pandemic has created an imperative for companies to consider reconfiguring their operations—and an opportunity to transform them.
By aligning their people’s personal needs with the organization’s goals, greater productivity will follow. Meaning gives people the right tools to take healthy breaks to optimize their productivity.
When we schedule healthy breaks into our work day, this also helps to create mini deadlines to work towards, which in turn helps you get your work done quicker. It also leaves you feeling refreshed and renews motivation to get things done.
“Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets… It is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done.” Tim Kreider noted in the New York Times in 2012.
