Today we’re joined by authorpreneur, Jinny Uppal, of “In/Action: Rethinking the Path to Results” as she talks about her research into the creative impact that comes from taking a break.

Like most of us, the pandemic forced a self-reckoning on Jinnny which led to a realization that throughout her life, before every big pivot came an invisible moment of pause and reflection. So as she went out to answer the question of “What drives fabulous progress” the obvious answer was the downtime in between.

And that’s what led her down this rabbit hole and journey. Her book is backed by historical anecdotes, neuroscience and interviews with top businessmen to show that while the concept feels extremely counterintuitive, it’s this strategic inaction that leads to creative ideas and the renewed vigor to implement them.
