Time Off: A Practical Guide to Building Your Rest Ethic and Finding Success Without the Stress


We live in a time where busyness is a badge of honor. Time off can seem like a forgotten or even despised concept. But in this book, you will learn how the deliberate practice of time off will enable you to be your most successful and fulfilled self. Time off and leisure will be the essential skills and competitive advantage that keep you happy and unique.

Many of the greatest minds in history knew about the importance of time off. But this is not an outdated concept. Even though most of us seem to have forgotten about it, time off is just as applicable (and essential) now than ever. Today, people who are recognizing this ancient wisdom are reaping tremendous benefits from it.

My co-author John Fitch and I, together with our illustrator Mariya Suzuki, have created Time Off to be an engaging, actionable, and value-packed read that inspires readers to achieve more by doing less. A happier, healthier life with less overwhelm and overwork? That’s life-changing. Time and leisure as a competitive advantage? Sign us up! Being more creative and human in the age of AI? Well...that’s how we’ll beat the robots.

From its ideas to its illustrations, Time Off is a head-turner AND a page-turner—presenting big ideas in an accessible form, challenging readers to re-think the value of busyness and showing them a better way (and why it’s so important).

The book is available on Amazon (https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/1734794402) as well as all other major book sellers, and can also be ordered from local book stores in the US and UK.
