Free read Rest Author Alex Soojung-Kim Pang Alex Soojung-Kim Pang È 8 Review Read ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF È Alex Soojung-Kim Pang The harder we work the better the outcome He combines rigorous scientific research with a rich array of examples of writers painters and thinkers from Darwin to Stephen King to challenge our tendency to see work and relaxation as antithetical Deliberate rest. I want to give this book 10 stars because our culture needs this message so much I saw this author keynote at a conference a few years back wish I could remember which one his talk at that time was about another of his books but what I remember is how impressed I was by his presentation and his ideas So when I saw this book among the new titles at the Mechanics Institute I had to check it out Now I will return the library copy and buy one to keep The message seemed so obvious I was a little hesitant at first but a uick dip at random convinced me to read it and I am so glad I did I ve been trying to change my workaholic ways and this book persuades me that not only is that good for me but it will also be good for my work Rest of the kinds described here including the dreaded exercise is likely to make me effective and creative when I do work so that I am useful to my employer than if I merely slog away for longer and longer hours I have certainly spent years trying the longer and longer hours approach so I know for sure that s not sustainable It is good to know that research backs me up on this and lots of great stories which you will enjoy reading if you follow my suggestion of getting ahold of this book at the earliest available opportunity

In Rest Alex Soojung Kim Pang uses science mostly psych studies and a few brain studies and historical examples to explore the concept of deliberate rest He posits that the best way to optimize one s creativity and focus for deep intellectual and creative work is to actually spend less time consciously doing the work itself and time on various types of deliberate rest The main point is that deliberate rest including walks naps etc allows the brain time to integrate and process thus rendering the actual focused work time highly productiveI think he makes many important points about the damaging ways work is viewed in our current culture and I have personally found that many of the things he points out have been effective stimulators of creativity in my own personal experience I find his examples of a structured routine of four hours of focused work followed by a walk nap correspondence etc is very appealing However I was frustrated that in the end the book is not particularly practical and provides no guidance on how the things he is discussing might apply to those of us with corporate jobs that expect a minimum of 8 hours a day on the job This surprised me since he is supposedly a silicon valley thinkerThere was also another thing that bothered me about the book his tone comes across as a little bit presumptuous or all knowing That is it felt like he was basically saying to be most creative you must do x y and z without allowing for the vast differences between people in terms of their needs propensities and desires For example one entire chapter is dedicated to starting early in the morning but reading between the lines I felt that the important point was that having a regular routine is important I highly doubt that all really creative people in history were early morning risers It felt like his historical examples were cherry picked to support his claims I felt this in other chapters as well Another place where this got to me were the chapters on exercises and deep play where he went on at length about prominent scientists and intellectuals who arewere rock climbers It began to feel like he was saying there was something particularly special about rock climbing This made me start to feel inadeuate since I am not drawn to being an athlete at all and especially not a rock climber In the end while he has some helpful ways of thinking about the concepts of work and rest I came away from the book feeling a bit disappointed and inadeuate He lays out an ideal that is hard to meet without any practical suggestions for how to get closer to it Vögel in unserem Garten offers a roadmap to rediscovering the importance Rosen's Breast Pathology of rest in Wendel our lives and a convincing argument that we need to relax if we actually want to get don.

Free read Rest Author Alex Soojung-Kim Pang Alex Soojung-Kim Pang È 8 Review Read ï eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF È Alex Soojung-Kim Pang Overwork is the new normal Rest is something to do when the important things are done but they are never done Looking at different forms of rest from sleep to vacation Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant Alex Soojung Kim Pang dispels the myth that. The cover is misleading This is not a book about idleness but it is also not about how you have to be a mountain climber in your spare time to be successful It s really a series of examples illustrating Flow Compared with a book I recently read Deep Work this one is much better It s not just filled with I m so great anecdotes This author did homework to find stories of people you might have heard of Darwin Ike Stephen King etc It s not repetitively nagging at you to stop looking at your emails etc It s explaining the benefits of positive recommendations like napping It gives evidence that s somewhat convincing eg the prospective study of scientists to back up the points it s making Unfortunately it wastes too many pages on ungeneralizable psychology experiments and on neurobollocks see Brainwashed The Seductive Appeal of Mindless Neuroscience It looks like serious non fiction with a theme that runs throughout the book and is built up with explorations from various angles and it has a Notes section as well as a Bibliographic Essay Overall I think that if people followed the advice in this book to find Flow in work and play that the kind of advice about not checking email would be superfluous
