Overview

In 2019, the World Health Organization classified burnout as an occupational phenomenon. As more people's health suffers the consequences of overworking, scientists and doctors started rethinking the modern notion of productivity. Busy schedules have become synonymous with success and it is both damaging people's health and making them less productive.

Max Frenzel is an Artificial Intelligence researcher and writer who holds a Ph.D. in Quantum Information Theory. John Fitch is a business coach, investor, and writer. Both authors spent years working in their respective fields before they realized how our culture of busyness was affecting their wellbeing and productivity. They are now advocates of rest ethics.

Time Off is the result of their collaborative research on productivity, noble leisure, and the work habits of famous creatives and innovators. It explains how maintaining a good rest ethic helps us achieve more while working less.

"If we want to accomplish the big things we've set out to do - to create, lead, contribute, and make an impact - we need a rest ethic as strong as our work ethic."

John Fitch and Max Frenzel
