We dare you...

to take your finger off that mouse.

When was the last time you left your cell phone at home? Do you have multiple email accounts that you can’t go a day without checking? Have you ever waited in paralyzing anxiety wondering if your Facebook comment has been read or if your emoticons were interpreted in the right way? For a week starting this Monday April 18th, we dare you to slow down, unplug, and digitally detox. We dare you to change your life in some way and see what happens.

I'm not seeing the relationship between the video and the idea of eschewing electronic devices. How would refusing to use electronic devices solve the protagonist's problem of excessive working hours?

This is a good idea, but the video's a bit of a non sequitur.

Agreed. The impression is one of our pressures of life that take away from from life. Paradox, no. The same thing in different perspectives, yes.
In part of Holland, Helsinki I do know of for sure has a four day work week standard. Studies show that they are one of the most productive per capita (average per person) than the US, Canada, or Australia.

Helsinki, Holland? LMAO!!!
Stop spreading urban myths.
And for your info: Helsinki is a city, the capital of Finland.
Holland is a country.
Now go to your cubicle and be productive.

Funny, he probably saw that in a pseudo-documentary. I don't know about Helsinki or even Finland all-together, but I've been working in Amsterdam, Holland and 8hour-working day is clearly the standard...
However the 4hour myth is easy to implement: start you own business and set your own rules! That's the starting point to conquer your life back.

pretty sure that said four day work week not four hour anything... which my husband who works in construction in Canada was telling me they were talking about implementing here so whether accurate or not it's true
