“Everybody focuses on the most obvious, measurable forms of work and tries to make those more effective and more productive. They don’t ask whether there are other ways to improve performance, and improve your life.This is how we’ve come to believe that world-class performance comes after 10,000 hours of practice. But that’s wrong. It comes after 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, 12,500 hours of deliberate rest, and 30,000 hours of sleep.” Darwin was a slacker and you should be too.

Take time to read the article to learn about the importance of deliberate rest as ‘the true key to productivity, and will give us more energy, sharper ideas, and a better life’.
