There’s a Better Way to Reclaim Your Time Than ‘Quiet Quitting’
A New York Times article by Laura Vanderkam
Perhaps over the summer you’ve read articles on the trend of “quiet quitting”? In a New York Times article by a time management expert, Laura Vanderkam, we are introduced to research backing the idea that by adding fulfilling and engaging activities into our weekly agendas we end up feeling “our time is less scarce” (Vanderkam, 2002). Often we think that by cutting things out of our agenda and having more ‘down time’ we will feel better able to catch up. Vanderkam shares information showing the opposite is actually true!
