Idle resources aren’t as bad as you think. Here’s why we need to break traditional beliefs in the workplace!
It’s somewhat of an unwritten policy that idle time is ‘bad’. Or at least it’s a belief ingrained into our society and workplaces. We must always be busy at work or find something to make us busy. Right? We feel bad when we take time out to do nothing, to take a breather. We should be working harder and doing more work to be more productive and efficient. If there isn’t any scheduled work left to start, let’s make up something we might need in the future. If we aren’t actually busy, then we should at the very least make ourselves appear busy so that management doesn’t cut our hours or think they don’t need us anymore. After all, the boss isn’t paying us to sit around and do nothing!
