Let’s be real for a second. These days, many of us live in a world of excess, where more is definitely better. We heap our plates full with seconds when we’re already full, overstuff a drawer with t-shirts we’ll never wear again and ensure that we own at least 20 mugs. (I know, I know — each of those mugs serves a very specific purpose.)
Often, we apply this “more is more” principle to our professional lives, too. Clocking in at the crack of dawn and logging off only when our eyelids can’t stay open anymore are often heralded as hallmarks of star employees.
But, I have news for you: This type of lifestyle is not necessary for success, growth or job satisfaction. In fact, I’d argue that it can actually hurt you (but that’s a story for a different day).
