"After the industrial revolution, Henry Ford reduced the working time for 5 days a week and 9 hours a day. That was 90 years ago. Since than- haven’t we advanced? Why do we still work 9 hours a day?”
Adi Karmon Scope has two hats; she is the Co founder of fractal boutique, assisting companies in the blockchain industry doing their ICO’s, and is also the founder of the Six Movement , which believes that people should work no more than six hours a day.
Coming from the corporate life, working 12 hours a day and climbing the ladder, Adi was feeling happy about her life. As she grew older, became a mom and got to know herself and her needs deeper, she started feeling conflicted with the idea of spending most of her life in an office. She became an entrepreneur, building companies in the fields of online marketing and virtual coins. As a founder, she started experimenting with managing her and her teams’ time to fit the six hours philosophy.
Nowadays, she calls the six hours her religion, and is managing her life in intervals of six; six hours of work, six hours with her family, six hours with time for herself and personal duties and six hours of sleep. Although she works in a very demanding industry, her clients and her teams are all aware of this policy and this doesn’t influence her income- to the contrary, Adi believes it gives her a competitive advantage.
In this conversation Adi talks about the reason everyone should move into the six hours work day, the change one needs to make in one’s life to fit it, and the importance of free time to fulfill our potential as human beings. This is an episode for anyone who feels overworked and wants to get exposed to a perspective that can change that.
