Hugh Jackman has promoted the “85% rule” suggesting that by giving 85% effort, rather than 100%, individuals can be more relaxed and ultimately perform better. This notion of not over-exerting oneself at work has been gaining traction, with many advocating for finding a work-life balance. Meanwhile, a study from King’s College London reveals that Britons view work as less central to their lives compared to other nations. Experts argue that the real change in work perceptions will come with the integration of AI, the implications of which remain uncertain.
- Hugh Jackman’s advocacy of the “85% rule” implies that by not pushing oneself to the maximum, one can achieve better results.
- Gabrielle Judge, a TikTok user, promotes the idea of “lazy girl jobs” that require minimal effort but provide comparable rewards.
- A recent study from King’s College London indicates that Britons are the least likely among 24 nations to consider work as a crucial part of their lives.
- Current changes in work perception might not be disruptive, but the integration of AI into the workplace could significantly alter how society values work.
- Despite changing attitudes, a majority in the UK still consider hard work as a key to a better life, although this belief is decreasing.
