Rest is productive
This is an excellent book that I strongly recommend. Like me, many people are 'addicted' to working - I know I get a buzz or fix from having a packed day but my cup empties taking me into unhealthy physical and emotional states. We learn to detach from our 'body' self and drive ourselves by our intellect's wants, shoulds, oughts, as well as our greed.
We need to learn how to stop, before exhaustion forces us to do so. This book offers very practical ways to manage our working lives. It shows that by working less we can be MORE productive. A great read/listen.
