Work smarter, not harder

An argument for firing workaholics. Bottom line: no virtue in working hard if you can't prioritize, can't get things done, and inadvertently cause the crises you solve. 37Signals diagnoses workaholism as a symptom of perfectionism, and I think that's true, but it also results from getting locked into a tactical, reactive stance.

I should link this from my syllabus, since I regularly tell my students they are graded on results rather than effort.
