Accomplish More by Doing Less

Over at The 99%, Tony Schwartz offers some excellent advice on how to accomplish more by doing less.

It’s not just the number of hours we sit at a desk that determines the value we generate. It’s the energy we bring to the hours we work … . Maintaining a steady reservoir of energy – physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually – requires refueling it intermittently.

Schwartz’s insistence that real productivity requires real rest, recharge, and renewal is in tune with Ken Robinson‘s focus on energy. Robinson suggests that having passion for your work is a built-in energy renewal system. Schwartz’s point on sustaining personal energy levels is even more basic, whatever your passion (or lack of passion) is for your work — simply take more meaningful breaks.

Get outside, move around more, and please, stop eating lunch at your desk.
