I'm author of a trilogy about work, creativity, and the mind: THE DISTRACTION ADDICTION, which explains how to use information technologies to be more focused and mindful; REST: WHY YOU GET MORE DONE WITH YOU WORK LESS, on the secret role of rest in the lives of highly creative and accomplished people; and most recently, SHORTER: WORK BETTER, SMARTER AND LESS-- HERE'S HOW, about the global movement to shorten the workweek. Through my company Strategy + Rest, I work with companies to redesign their workdays and better balance work and rest.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
