The Art & Science of Doing Nothing
What would it be like if before this year ends you found out why you?re so tired and overwhelmed most of the time? If could start the new year with a greater understanding of how to fuel your imagination and creativity?
That?s exactly what the remaining weeks of this year could look like for you, if you join Ina Catrinescu?s, powerful, 1,5 hours lecture on 'The Art & Science of Doing Nothing' that will take place on 19 November 2017.
Chances are, if you're human, you've felt overworked. Time is always in short supply and you're stretched to the max. When you've got big dreams and you're juggling work, deadlines, personal development and the search for meaning in life ? the last thing you want to hear is about the benefits of doing nothing.
But here's the thing....
Meaning in life, like happiness, or love, cannot be pursued; it must ensue. But how can it ensue, if we?re constantly on the run?
In this lecture Ina talks about the importance of giving ourself white space and ample time to be idle.
Ina shares how crucial these practices have been to her as a burned-out employee, juggling a full-time job and full-time study while scaling her consulting business.
About our speaker
Ina Catrinescu is a writer, engagement and change consultant and emotional intelligence evangelist at www.ina.fyi.
As engagement and change consultant leading global adoption at Fortune Global 500 companies like ING Bank and Achmea, and most recently at KPMG, Ina's advice on productivity and motivation is simple but thorough: Embrace recreation, but fill it intelligently.
Over the past three months she's been writing her latest book on the topic, ?The War of Work: Silent Weapons of Management,? which follows close on the heels of her bestselling novel, ?Love of Fate.? Inspiration came from her recovery after an episode of burnout in 2011.
As founder of Ina.fyi, Ina offers an alternative to the blank slate view of human motivation that appears to be dominant within the leadership ecosystem.
Ina?s mission: ?You have gifts to share with the world and my aspiration is to help you come into alignment with them.?

About the book: On any given day, approximately 2,6 billion people worldwide are secretly turning thoughts over in their minds about quitting their jobs. Chances are, you are one of them. Our work incessantly demands that we juggle concepts such as ?change,? ?teamwork? and ?performance management," which are seemingly presenting new opportunities for prosperity, but in reality undermine our health. Ina?s book puts a radically honest lens on work and the workplace.
