Rest

Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

Overview

If you're like most people, you admire the person who leaves the office last. You think they work the hardest and get the most done. They seem to be the boss's favorite because of what they're willing to sacrifice for the company. Society tells us the path to success is working long and hard, but what if you could accomplish more than your average workaholic and in less time? It might sound crazy, but it's true. We accomplish the most when we take time out of our day to rest.

Alex Soojung-Kim Pang is a Silicon Valley strategist and the founder of The Restful Company. He helps people cultivate a more healthy work-life balance and reach their full potential. Pang encourages individuals to make time for play and creativity. In Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, he combines neuroscience with examples from influential leaders to prove why time away from work, or 'deliberate rest,' is so critical to success.

We don't have to conform to a workaholic lifestyle. Working too much only leads to burnout. Rest shows how you will get more done when you make sure to give yourself enough time to slow down and enjoy yourself.

Favorite Quote

"If you want to rest, you have to take it. You have to resist the lure of busyness, make time for rest, take it seriously, and protect it from a world that is intent on stealing it."
