Work isn't working. We are so busy staying busy, with constant emails and new message apps, we end up exhausted says professor Cal Newport.

He maintains we need to replace fast with slow  and focus on quality over quantity to add meaning to our professional lives and to make work more sustainable.

His new book makes the case for a modern philosophy in the workplace. It's called Slow Productivity: The Lost Art of Accomplishment without Burnout.
