Summary

As constant travelers and parents of a 2-year-old, we sometimes fantasize about how much work we can do when one of us gets on a plane, undistracted by phones, friends, and Finding Nemo. We race to get all our ground work done: packing, going through TSA, doing a last-minute work call, calling each other, then boarding the plane. Then, when we try to have that amazing work session in flight, we get nothing done. Even worse, after refreshing our email or reading the same studies over and over, we are too exhausted when we land to soldier on with the emails that have inevitably still piled up.

"Resilience Is about How You Recharge, Not How You Endure" is from hbr.org, published on June 24, 2016.

Exactly what I needed

Although this is very short the content is excellent. I'm so glad it was being offered free at the time I got it, as I probably would have dismissed it as not worth buying since it's only 10 minutes long. It gets to the heart of the matter though and made me realise I've been going about things all wrong, trying harder and harder and getting nowhere. I realise I almost never take any time to recharge except when I'm asleep and that is probably a major factor in why my actual productivity level is low given the amount of time I spend working. I'm going to restructure my life now. Many thanks to the authors - the voice-over was great too.
