#044 - The Benefits of Doing Nothing (Susan Pearse)
Writer, speaker and leadership consultant Susan Pearse joins me to discuss the benefits of doing nothing.
In today’s episode we discuss why doing nothing matters, some of the reason people find it difficult to let go and relax, we answers questions such as when does productivity spillover into busyness, how to know the difference between relaxing and wasting time, and how relaxation can actually help, rather than hinder, your ambitions.
We also offer a few tips from Susan's book "Do Less Be More" on how to master the art of doing nothing including how to go on a date with yourself, having a not-to-do list, and the beauty of boredom.
