When: Taking Breaks

This quote makes us wonder why most companies don’t implement more breaks into their daily routines when the data says otherwise.

DeskTime, a company that makes productivity-tracking software, says that ‘what the most productive 10% of our users have in common is their ability to take effective breaks.’ Specifically, after analyzing its own data, DeskTime claims to have discovered a golden ratio of work and rest. High-performers, its research concludes, work for fifty-two minutes and then break for seventeen minutes.” -Daniel H. Pink (pg.61)
