Jason Fried: Why work doesn’t happen at work

Jason Fried has a radical theory of working: that the office isn’t a good place to do it. Fried argue that most work is done in phases, as with sleep, and if a phase in disturbed one cannot simply start where work was left off – the phase must be started again. Thus, when a work process is involuntarily interrupted there is a recovery time before it is where it left off. Voluntary distractions, on the other hand, are put between work phases.
