It's perhaps an unusual title, but Hustle and Float is a compelling read. A book of two parts, it first explores the history of work, and critically, the psychological relationship we have with it. I've read various accounts of the history of work before, but this is the first time I’ve read about work as a socio-cultural construct. It’s fascinating to consider just how enmeshed 'work' has become in personal identity and our sense of self.

 

Yet work is changing – fast. Many of the ways in which we organise ourselves at work are no longer fit for purpose. They don't meet the needs of the knowledge economy, and they certainly won't meet the needs of the kind of work we'll be doing in far more technological work futures. 

 

Human beings are creative and adaptive by nature but are left demotivated by many of the stifling management practices models that are still mainstream today. 

 

Hustle and Float presents both robust arguments for why things need to change, and hope for a more fulfilling work future.
