❝ When we complain about too much work, we’re... - John Althouse Cohen
❝ When we complain about too much work, we’re expected to offer regrets about sleep lost, family events missed, television shows not caught up on. Nobody wants to seem like a remorseless lunatic who’s thrilled to miss the school play.

But amid the complaining about being overworked, there’s often a decipherable bit of pride, even a hint of a brag—a workbrag.

Why do we brag about overwork? Because we’re conditioned to think that working all the time is a good thing, a signal of diligence, virtue and our own value.…

What if all of that is upside down? What if working all the time is a symptom of dysfunction, not excellence? What if it turns out to be dreadfully inefficient, a recipe for burnout and turnover and eventual collapse? …

That’s the premise of a new book, “It Doesn’t Have to Be Crazy at Work,” by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson. Last week, I hosted a talk with the authors for a Wall Street Journal event in New York City. The co-founders of the workplace software company Basecamp, Fried and Hansson are successful entrepreneurs who rail against the win-at-all-costs mentality of American business. They preach calm over conquest. They pay their employees to take vacation—not vacation time but the actual vacation.…

Fried and Hansson’s company used to have one of those “limitless vacation” policies, until they realized that it made employees nervous about taking vacation. Now they insist on three weeks. …

The tide may be starting to turn. Recently, a video game developer, Dan Houser, gave an interview to New York magazine in which he talked about the 100-hour weeks some employees worked to finish a new game. That provoked a backlash, with Houser later clarifying to the website Kotaku and others that such workweeks were unusual, and not required, and that the average workweek at his company was closer to 45 hours. ❞

Stress eats holes in your brain | Star Tribune
The frontal lobe has been identified as "the most critical to everyday functionality," Chapman said. "When you have the impact of stress, things that allow you to be successful will be impaired. You can't figure out how to juggle things, to set priorities."

That's one of four areas of the brain affected by stress. Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University calls the hippocampus "ground zero for stress doing damaging stuff."

"One definitely wants to have a functioning hippocampus," Sapolsky said. "It's all about learning and memory, the part blown out of the water by Alzheimer's disease. It's also the part that is most vulnerable to the effects of stress."

The definition and effects of stress differ. One person can shrug off what might totally undo another. Generally, stress is considered to come from a feeling of having no control.

"Most people are pretty insightful about whether they're stressed out," Eagleman said. "It's not an all-or-nothing thing. There are varying degrees. For some, their breath is shallow. With others, their muscles ache or their jaw hurts. ... It's important to read your body's signals, to figure out when you're having high levels of stress and structure ways to manage the stress."

When people do, they change, said Dr. Joel Holliner, a psychiatrist.

"When patients come in, we commonly see concentration problems, the inability to make decisions," said Holliner, chief of psychiatry at Medical City Dallas Hospital. "Over time as they get treatment, we see them significantly improve, to going from having memory deficits -- so many think they have dementia or Alzheimer's -- to having their memory totally back to normal. It's fantastic, absolutely."
