At a time when being busy is worn as a badge of honour, and we are accustomed to filling every waking moment with (often useless or unpleasant) activity, Do Less Be More explores why switching off, or at the very least, slowing down, is vital, to ensure we achieve what we want.Busyness is a barrier to self-reflection, a hindrance to novel solutions and a smokescreen to clarity. While cramming in one more task may feel useful, productive or even satisfying, it's not always the best use of a spare moment. In fact, it will inevitably lead us to a place where we become less productive, less creative, less inspired and less satisfied with life.While we might think we don't have any space in our lives to do more of what is important to us, Do Less Be More offers listeners 21 activities to reclaim even the tiniest moments, like waiting for a coffee, to rest their brains and, in so doing, rediscover insight, inspiration and fresh ideas.Learn how to ban busy and focus on what really matters with practical ways to say no and embrace silence, space and solitude.
Susan Pearse and Martina Sheehan are passionate about helping people rediscover the clarity and insight that emerges from deep self-awareness, the capacity for reflection, and the discipline to pay attention to the things that matter most. Together they developed an award-winning program called Conscious Leadership, which was Australia's first mindfulness-based leadership program. Martina & Susan have co-authored two books that translate emerging brain science into practical techniques for leading better and living more fully.
