Most of us worry about our distractibility. We zone out, daydream and procrastinate, and then chastise ourselves for wasting time. But what if most of that 'wasted time' was actually time well spent? As neuroscientist Dr Srini Pillay explains, there is a neurological imperative for why we all do these things. Drawing on the latest brain research, compelling stories from his psychological practice, and colourful examples of counterintuitive success from sports, business, education and the arts, he reveals that there is a vital default mode network in the brain that only activates when we are unfocused, 'doing nothing' or letting our minds rest.
