Self-proclaimed productivity scholar Harfoush shares a cautionary tale with listeners: She argues that a too rigid focus on productivity is harmful for knowledge professionals who must shoehorn their creativity into a get-stuff-done-whatever-the-cost mindset. Replete with stories of creatives who suffered through endless workweeks, sleeping under their desks before burning out, compiling never-ending "to do" lists, and cultivating an empty-inbox mentality, she offers the sensible idea that workplace creativity can't be all hustle, but necessarily includes floating. Harfoush's narration is animated, fueled by the conviction of her own experiences. Occasionally, her pacing and word emphasis may seem odd. But the content keeps listeners focused on a sobering glimpse of a world of increasingly frantic productivity hacks and offers a saner approach to work.
