Hacking Work blows the cover off the biggest open secret in the working world. Today's top performers are taking matters into their own hands by bypassing sacred structures, using forbidden tools, and ignoring silly rules to increase their productivity and job satisfaction. This book reveals a multitude of powerful technological and social hacks, and shows readers how bringing these methods out into the open can help them maximize their efficiency and satisfaction with work. Hacking work is the act of getting what you need to do your best by exploiting loopholes and creating workarounds. It is taking the usual ways of doing things and bypassing them to produce results. Hacking work is getting the system to work for you. Includes how to focus your efforts where they count, negotiate for a more flexible work schedule, and abolish time-wasting meetings and procedures.
