From Tony Schwartz: Time is finite, but we act as if it were other­wise, assuming that longer hours always lead to increased produc­tivity. But in reality our bodies are designed to pulse and pause — to expend energy and then renew it. In this reve­la­tory talk, energy expert Tony Schwartz debunks common produc­tivity myths and shows us how to regain control over our energy so we can produce great work.

Tony Schwartz is founder and CEO of The Energy Project, a company that helps indi­vid­uals and orga­ni­za­tions fuel energy, engage­ment, focus, and produc­tivity by drawing on the science of high perfor­mance. Tony has written four best­selling books, including The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working, published in 2010, and The Power of Full Engage­ment: Managing Energy Not Time, co-authored with Jim Loehr.
