We are overworked, stressed and not living the lives we are meant to live.
Mere four hundred years ago there were no jobs. People did what they wanted to do and earned their living by creating value in their own unique way.
Then came the industrial age. Big factories came into existence which started employing people to do a particular tasks. The payout was good, so more and more people went that path.
Since then people started trading time for money. Creativity went out of the window. People lost their own unique value. More than that, they had no control over their time and hence their lives.
With all the technology, all the machines, all the computers, we are still laboring away our lives.
Do we really need to work eight hours a day?
Why we keep on accepting this slave labor model of the industrial age?
Swedish culture has taken a step by making a move towards a six-hour working day.
In many of the organisations and companies that have made the change, they’ve noticed that their staff are happier, more productive and more creative, which proves the point that if the employees feel better, they’ll actually do better work. It’s a win-win situation.
