Andrew Smart is the author of Autopilot, a fascinating book that puts forward the scientific arguments for doing less and being “idle” more of the time. I read Autopilot as part of my 2014 Reading List and I was fascinated by its topic, particularly the idea of a “resting state network” – an area of your brain that theory suggests could be critical to creativity and memory retention – which activates when you’re at rest. Andrew is also very outspoken about productivity and time management techniques, which I’m keen to explore with him to see whether Bojan and I fall into the category of “time management evangelists” that he vilifies in his book.
