We live in a time where busyness is a badge of honor. Time off can seem like a forgotten or even despised concept. But in this book, you will learn how the deliberate practice of time off will enable you to be your most successful and fulfilled self. Time off and leisure will be the essential skills and competitive advantage that keep you happy and unique.
If all of your hard work isn't working, it might be worth questioning the common assumption that ‘busy’ = ‘productive’. Your hard work might actually be harming your productivity, as well as yourself.
Everywhere we look in nature, including our own evolutionary history, we find balanced cycles of activity and rest. But recently, this balance has been severely disturbed. By intentionally re-connecting your ability to work with your ability to rest, you can find more calm, confidence, and creativity.
Many of the greatest minds in history knew about the importance of time off. But this is not an outdated concept. Even though most of us seem to have forgotten about it, time off is just as applicable (and essential) now than ever. Today, people who are recognizing this ancient wisdom are reaping tremendous benefits from it. The Time Off book covers 4 main topics:

We help you find your style of time off by introducing you to a large variety of successful people, past and present, through their stories as well as clear and actionable advice.
Rest is essential and this idea is more than just opinion. From chronobiology to sleep science and neurobiology, the value of time off can be found in hard data.
While we believe that everyone can successfully implement some forms of time off, we get it, some people have to work three jobs just to get by. And writing a book that everyone will love is tough. So we focused on a few groups that could benefit the most.
