    Webinar: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less

    by Alex Soojung-Kim Pang

    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 this Soundview Live webinar, Why You Get More Done When You Work Less, Silicon Valley consultant Alex Pang argues that we can be more successful in all areas of our lives by recognizing the importance of rest. Drawing on rigorous scientific evidence and revelatory historical examples, Pang overturns everything our culture has taught us about work and shows that only by resting better can we start living better.

    What You'll Learn

    • Why working better does not mean working more, it means working less and resting better.
    • How treating rest as a passive activity secondary to work undermines our chances for a rewarding and meaningful life.
    • The importance of making space for daily naps like Winston Churchill, going on hours-long strolls like Charles Darwin, or spending a week alone in a cabin like Bill Gates.
    • Why pursuing what Pang calls “deliberate rest” is the true key to fulfillment and creative success.
