Life at a startup like Float is hectic. In fact life for anyone in the connected-plugged-in-always-on-geo-located-uptime-guarantee digital community is hectic. Information overload is easy and if you burn it for too long then burnout is going to happen.
At Float we have a culture that encourages people to break away from their day-to-day to make sure they get time to think. Time to ponder, stare out of the window and let the mind wander. Like music; it’s the silence that matters just as much as the notes.
This article by Scott Belsky about the importance of making time for “Deep Thinking” is an interesting take on it. Enjoy the read and take a break.
