Rest & Shorter – Two Books Pioneering A Change To The Cult Of Productivity
Alex Soojung-Kim Pang is, among other things, the founder of Strategy and Rest. Strategy and Rest is a consultancy firm devoted to helping companies and individuals harness the power of rest to shorten our workdays while staying focused and productive.
These themes are published as a series of books. ‘Shorter’, which makes the case for the 4-day workweek and ‘Rest’, the book which initially caught me onto Alex and makes the case for why rest is the key to improved productivity, rather than the accepted thesis of the opposite.
In this podcast, you can expect to learn…
- The entrepreneurial case for a 4-day work week.
- Why we should all prioritise rest… and what rest actually constitutes (spoilers, its not TV)
- A nuerological explanation of sleep
- much, much more…
