I started a full time in-house design job that pays extremely well. I barely have to work at all. This makes me very confused since I kept hearing stories of people working 60+ hr weeks as designers at ad agencies. I am not complaining, but I have this creeping irrational feeling that I’ll get fired for not working even though there’s nothing for me to do. Should i be making up projects or asking for more work?

When making a decision for your organization, consider the SCARF Model: The SCARF model (Rock, 2008) is a summary of important discoveries from neuroscience about the way people interact socially.

I am sure many will relate to having these same reactions within our social groups.
