Time is finite, but we act, [and the architects a lot of more] as if it were otherwise, assuming that longer hours always lead to increased creativity and productivity. But in reality our bodies are designed to pulse and pause – to expend energy and then renew it. In this interesting 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. Good holiday "bridge" for all, in Spain... of course!

"Are you over-worked and under-energized? At Behance's 99% Conference, energy expert Tony Schwartz breaks down our productivity myths and shows us how to get back on track."
