I really like this article and priorities it sets forth. The critical component that isn’t really discussed though is the foundation that needs to be in place to support that level of trust and autonomy. Leadership and direction. The big decisions have been made, people know what their priorities are and what they’re working on, the train is moving and the destination is known.

The anti-busy train keeps on rolling. I love this article by Tim Kreider. It’s a thought provoking and challenging look at what fuels our constant business.

Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets. The space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration — it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done.
