#2 Dave Duarte - The Power of Doing Nothing
Why is it that productivity is associated with cramming more things to do into every square inch of our days? Our response to the increasing information stimuli and complexity is to work longer hours, take shorter breaks and multi-task. Dave Duarte, entrepreneur and lecturer at the UCT Graduate School of Business, believes that this is an immature approach. He argues that the key to being more efficient and more effective at what we do is to slow down, listen to our bodies, and make technology work for us.
