April eThoughtstarters: Starting Thought

describe the imageNapping at work has always been one of those ideas that sounds great in theory. But the truth is I can’t imagine powering down in the middle of the day for a power nap.

And when it comes down to it, I’m pretty sure that naps wouldn’t feel quite so necessary if we all didn’t feel so stressed and overwhelmed all the time. And I’m also pretty sure that we wouldn’t feel quite so stressed and overwhelmed if good communication were the norm rather than the exception. Think about it... How much of your day is spent figuring out what someone meant by something, what you’re really supposed to be doing on a project, managing office gossip that’s out of control, and the like.

I can't foresee many organizations buying into sleeping pods and the naps idea (unless you already work at Google), but in the meantime, might I suggest focusing on the much more easily attainable goal of improving communication. You’ll be amazed at how refreshing it is!
