Background

    

 

In 2001, Debra Dinnocenzo & Rick Swegan published “Dot Calm: The Search for Sanity in a Wired World.”  That book included a Special Foreword penned by their daughter, Jennimarie, which reads as follows:

 

While teaching a graduate course on “Leadership in the Virtual Workplace,” Debra covers topics related to the history, meaning, and evolution of work, as well as issues such as overwork, over-access, and over-connectedness in the digital age. During this section, she ask students, all of whom are experienced workers actively employed across a variety of occupations and industries, to undertake a little research project. Their assignment one week is to find three people under the age of 10 and to ask them why it’s good to not work too much. Debra also surveyed children in schools, daycare programs and camps to ask the same question. “Working Too Much Can Make You Grumpy” is the collective wisdom gathered from these surveys and interviews.
