On Work and Rest
A human being is the kind of machine that wears out from lack of use. There are limits, of course, and we do need healthful rest and relaxation, but for the most part we gain energy by using energy. (George Leonard, Mastery)
A change of work is as good as rest.
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“Is a change of work really as good as rest?”
“Depends on the work.
Mental and physical work go beautifully together. They’re synergistic.
Physical work is wonderful rest from mental work, and energizes you for the next session of mental work.”
