Publisher's Summary

In an era of always-on devices, it’s difficult to totally disconnect from our jobs outside of work hours. But not doing so can cause long-term stress, burnout, and loss of the joy we find in work.

As a top tech leader, Bruce Daisley has seen up close how an around-the-clock work culture can lead employees to feel perpetually stressed-out, disengaged, and unhappy. In this workshop, Daisley lays out specific strategies to help us break free from the unhealthy work habits that lead to burnout and shows us that protecting our personal time can lead to more inspiration and more joy on the job. 

Key takeaways:

  • Create and acknowledge boundaries: Adopt simple habits or tactics (like taking short breaks and switching off emails on certain nights) to disconnect from work momentarily and reenergize your mind
  • Be open about burnout: Have honest conversations with managers and teams about the effects of workplace stress and how best to address them
  • Lighten up with laughter: Laugh and have a good time with colleagues to release stress and feel connected to a larger group 

About the mentor: Bruce Daisley is the former European vice president for Twitter and host of the UK’s number one business podcast, Eat Sleep Work Repeat. He is the best-selling author of Eat Sleep Work Repeat: 30 Hacks for Bringing Joy to Your Job, and his writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Wired, Harvard Business Review, The Guardian, and The Daily Telegraph.

Good but basic

Easy listen but did not learn anything new, it’s all common sense like don’t read emails on the weekend, take vacations.

Nothing new. Could have googled the answers.

Save your time and money. Just Google how to destress at work and not work for an @-h○le.

Very shallow and superficial tips

I gave one extra star for getting introduced to "walking meeting". Otherwise, not a book that can be described as beneficial. Very similar to "10 ways to..." youtube videos.

Not for everyone

Mostly applies to office environments and burnout for those who are workaholics. Not those who are missing passion and feeling lost, or stuck in a dead end job. I found 2 things useful; leaving work at work over the weekend, and walking during meetings.

Nothing new here

Very obvious and shallow tips. Nothing new. Nothing helpful. 30 minutes wasted. I should have guessed it would be just that.

Short and to the point

I appreciate a read that saves time and isn’t stretched out for no reason. This isn’t like that. It was short but still gave some great suggestions to consider.

Great Summary! Now I want the full story.

Great summary! He does a great job of using limited time, structuring his idea, repeating key points, and summarizing what he discussed. Now I want to listen to his full book having had a preview.
