Get more great ideas - spend less time at work
Last week I was in Barcelona speaking to the international conference of the Dogs Trust, and exploring overwork. I asked a simple question of everybody there:
Think of a great idea you’ve had in the last year? Where did you get that idea?
Hi, we are Happy
We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

The answers included “in the bar”, “in the shower” and “walking the dog”. Out of 300 people, only two got their idea at work. This is always the case. People rarely get great ideas at work. I normally get mine while out cycling.

Spend endless hours at work and settle for less innovation
Spend less time at work and have more great ideas.
