We're back from summer break! It's time to get back to work, but it's important not to overdo it. In this episode, Ty Fujimura, president of web design firm Cantilever, talks about how he escaped the Cult of Overwork; why it's important to rethink the relationship between hours "worked" and actual productivity; and how establishing healthier patterns in the workplace has helped diversify his staff.
