Why work doesn’t happen at work –Jason Fried

Following is an interesting TED talk by Jason Fried of 37signal on why it is difficult to get any work done at work.

He argues that M&Ms (managers and meetings) are the real problem at work. How can we change that? I am certain that Jason is not suggesting to fire and cancel all M&Ms. Instead he has the following three suggestions to get more work done at office:

1 No talk Thursday. Enforce 4 hour of uninterrupted and quite time once a week.

2 Promote passive way of communication via chat and email application.

3 Just cancel the next meeting, if you have the power.

Check this podcast out to see whether you can relate it with your work environment, and improve it by promoting these suggestions. Thanks.
