The Club


I once heard of a corporation that had a sound-proof stress reduction area where employees could go to yell, punch bags, and meditate. Outside, there were jogging trails.

I propose an alternative: The Club.

The Club will be designed as a library with comfortable chairs, plenty of books, magazines, and newspapers. Coffee and tea will be available. The entire atmosphere will be soothing.

And there will be a strict rule of silence. No talking. No telephones.

Just a place for escape and contemplation.

I propose a place where associates can take naps. Not long ones, just enough to recharge after lunch. I'm not entirely unserious with this idea...

Dan,

That makes sense. Far better to take a nap than to stare mindlessly at a desk or a computer screen.
