Archimedes & 8 Hours of Sleep, 8 Hours of Work, 8 Hours of Fun

by Vonda
(Atlanta, GA)

Just to give another point of view: a healthy separation between work and non-work leaves room for new perspectives to flow.

While Creativity author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi talks of immersion in the subject, he mentions stories of creative insights that could not have come at the office, but only pop up during extended vacations.

Where would mathematics be if Archimedes hadn't taken a break and hopped in the bathtub? :) In Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, famous author Stephen Covey emphasizes his restorative time with his large family.

A successful colleague voted one of the 20 best scientists under 40 lived in graduate school by the motto "8 hours of sleep, 8 hours of work, 8 hours of fun".

For most people, a rewarding life outside of work -- including hobbies, family and social interaction -- keeps up energy and intrinsic motivation and prevents self-worth from being based on the opinions of the market or of management.


SUZIE'S COMMENTS...

Love the 8 hour mindset...perfect guidelines.

Also, I really appreciate your thoughts @ the importance of hobbies and outside of work interactions. Being self-directed requires our having our own sense of who we are...

Vonda, thanks so much for taking time to post here at the Wake Up Eager Community!

All the Best, and More!
Suzie

Great job getting the grant. Your website is awesome. I work for one of the state universities at the power plant and have often thought how cool it would be to attach something like your harvester to the flu gas before it goes out the stack to use up some of the post.drsrecuperacaodedados recuperar hd
