    The Perfect Amount of Time to Work Each Day

    Your Brain Wants an Hour On, 15 Minutes Off

    People who have discovered this magic productivity ratio crush their competition because they tap into a fundamental need of the human mind: the brain naturally functions in spurts of high energy (roughly an hour) followed by spurts of low energy (15–20 minutes).

    For most of us, this natural ebb and flow of energy leaves us wavering between focused periods of high energy followed by far less productive periods, when we tire and succumb to distractions.

    Meanwhile, some of our employers demand that people not be allowed to take breaks.

    “Meanwhile, some of our employers demand that people not be allowed to take breaks.”

    There are some jobs where that would be fine so long as, if you can clear the work, you can go home early and still get the same pay.

    But no.

    They think they’re increasing productivity. Ha! “Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.”

    Time to reinstate Deming’s 14 points; the greatest being “Drive out fear.” Closely followed by “Remove barriers that rob people of pride of workmanship.”

    ‘You pretend to pay us/manage us – we pretend to work.”

    Two policies Labour should have in their manifesto from events yesterday/today:

    1. Clean streams by 2030 with 260 parts not 540. *
    2. Immediate government subsidies to rapidly repair the still earthquake wrecked Lyttleton cruise liner wharf/wharves.**

    *if this costs $3 billion ($230m a year) so be it, though I doubt this.
    **it is clear that Akaroa (and the road from there to chch) simply can’t cope with the rising number of cruise ships. Some smaller ones would still call there.

    Just when I thought the rich could not be more parasitic I come across in today’s Herald the so called artist Steffie – the previous PM’s daughter planning to make a 30 minute movie about some weird soft porn stuff for which she is so good at and would you believe, she is going to crowd fund for it – for the lack of funds one would think. Christ on a bike, she has mega funds coming out the whazoo already and she has the colossal nerve to ask for even more. Well, I suppose that is how the rich extract money out of the stupid. I suppose there will be folks who will give a little towards it – idiots.
