9780465074877: Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less

One of Silicon Valley's sharpest strategists shows that success doesn't demand longer, harder hours, it demands that you work less
For most of us, overwork is the new normal and rest is an afterthought. In our busy lives, rest is defined as the absence of work: late-night TV binges, hours spent trawling the internet, something to do once we've finished everything else on our to-do lists. But dismissing rest stifles our ability to think creatively and truly recharge.

In Rest, Silicon Valley consultant Alex Pang argues that we can be more successful in all areas of our lives by recognizing the importance of rest: working better does not mean working more, it means working less and resting better. Treating rest as a passive activity secondary to work undermines our chances for a rewarding and meaningful life. Whether by making space for daily naps, as Winston Churchill did during World War II; going on hours-long strolls like Charles Darwin; or spending a week alone in a cabin like Bill Gates, pursuing what Pang calls "deliberate rest" is the true key to fulfillment and creative success. Drawing on rigorous scientific evidence and revelatory historical examples, Rest overturns everything our culture has taught us about work and shows that only by resting better can we start living better

From the Author:

I became interested in the importance of rest in creative lives began when I noticed a paradox: many of history's most accomplished thinkers, artists, writers, and composers organized their lives around their work, but not their days. Figures as diverse as Charles Darwin, Salvador Dali, and Maya Angelou think about their work constantly, and achieve much more than most of us, yet they spend fewer hours laboring than we do. What accounts for their success?
The key is not the quantity of their work, but the quality of their rest. Many super-creative and -productive people take a distinctive approach to rest. 

  • They see rest as a skill: like speaking or running, it's something we all do naturally, and can learn to do better. 
  • They learn to harness mind-wandering: they develop habits that give their brains a break, or give their unconscious minds time to explore new ideas. 
  • They treat rest with respect, and make time for it in their daily schedules. 
  • They recognize rest as a resource that can extend their creative lives.
Rest blends history, biography, and recent work in neuroscience and psychology to uncover the critical but under-recognized role rest plays in the lives of creative people. It shows how creative figures structure their days to make good use of rest, and why long walks, afternoon naps, vigorous exercise, and "deep play" stimulate creative work and sustain creative lives.
