Enough already. That’s what Baratunde Thurston, the author of the New York Times best seller How to Be Black and a columnist for Fast Company magazine, was thinking when he unplugged from his digital life. The world’s most connected man left the grid, slowed down, and looked for a better approach to the always-on times we live in. What Thurston discovered in his month offline is funny, personal, insightful—and relevant to anyone looking for more balance.
This is just one of the stories in #Unplug: How to Work Hard and Still Have a Life, which features Fast Company’s most practical and inspiring coverage. Stories about a week in the desert at a detox spa for hyperachieving, hyperstressed execs. Life inside a Norwegian company where balance is more than airy HR-speak. A young Rahm Emanuel sharing how he juggles his White House gig and his family.
Fast Company has been chronicling this struggle and identifying the best solutions to demanding work lives for years. This collection is an ideal handbook for those who believe working hard and having a life shouldn’t be an either/or proposition. As the smart, successful subjects in #Unplug attest, you have more control than you think.
