This new proverb may go against conventional wisdom, because some people assume that you need to work more overtime to get more work accomplished. But studies have shown that skipping breaks reduces productivity. And there has been actual research that showed that taking an afternoon siesta (nap) increases productivity. So this proves that you need to take time away from work to be more productive. Now look at it this way — if you are becoming less productive because of skipping breaks, then you are accomplishing less per hour. If you’re accomplishing less per hour, then you must work extra to make up for the difference. So the more you work, the longer you have to work. And the converse is true also — the less you work, the less you have to work, because you’re being more productive with your time.
Is it clear? (Now who’s ready for a break? Meet me in the lobby.)
