They create a social contract with workers: in exchange for a shorter work day, employees agree to avoid online distractions. They invest more in planning and managing projects, in order to set clearer, more useful goals and deadlines. They‘re also ruthless about cutting down time-wasting activities: meetings are short, and status updates held to a minimum.

So he knew that his own behavior would be central to shifting norms in his organization."

Counterintuitive as it may seem, a growing body of research suggests that setting aside work to take breaks actually increases our productivity. However, when we do take breaks, the majority of us are taking low-quality breaks without paying attention to what will truly help us focus when we return to work. And the longer we work without interruption, the more our productivity suffers.
