*****BREAKING NEWS!!!******

Your (sort of) regularly scheduled episode of The Busyness Paradox has been postponed so that we can bring you coverage of a stunning development unfolding in Germany. Just moments ago, we learned that, 8 days ago, a German court single-handedly raised the bar for paradoxical workplace...stuff. In its landmark ruling, the Bundessozialgericht ruled that injuries sustained during an employee's morning commute from his bed to his desk constitute a workplace injury because he - crucially - did NOT eat breakfast before falling down the stairs. Join us as we tackle the question on everyone's mind ("huh?") and come to terms with the fact that we're officially a top 50 podcast.*

* In the business management category**
** In Saudi Arabia
