The best episode of the Talk show that John has ever done. A proud episode for John and talk show. Apple has been very kind to do this one of a kind interview. If you are a podcast listener, you should watch this interview.
A nice talk by Tony Fadell at TED.
Leo in his article named constant task switching Talks about how to stop wandering and gives some simple steps one can follow to get the Focus back.
I know I’m losing focus when I’m constantly jumping around from task to task.
This is a “red flag” for me — a sign that I’m doing something wrong. You’ve done it too: switching from one browser tab to another, opening various emails and other messages, checking on this and that. No focus, lots of stress, lots of mental exhaustion without really getting anything done.
The solutions he offers later in the article are minimal, clear and easy to put to practice.
It has been over a month since a dear friend of mine passed away. It still hurts and I know a few people who are yet to recover from his death. Accepting death isn’t easy at all and especially when it was a very unfortunate ill timed early death. Since I know how badly it hurts, I thought I will share an article by Tim Ferris about Death and especially about suicide. The idea behind sharing an article here is to spread the word for those who are looking for motivation to avoid taking their lives. Tim has compiled a list of reasons which should give a new reason for living to those who are depressed.
Below are the realizations that helped me (and a few friends). They certainly won’t work for everyone suffering from depression, but my hope is that they help some of you.
- Call this number : 1 (800) 273-8255. I didn’t have it, and I wish I had. It’s the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (website and live chat here). It’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in both English and Spanish.
I realized it would destroy other people’s lives. Killing yourself can spiritually kill other people.
There’s no guarantee that killing yourself improves things!
If you don’t care about yourself, make it about other people.
Make a promise you can’t break, or at the very least realize this: killing yourself will destroy other people’s lives.
Life is precious, please do make the most of it. Life is definitely worth living every moment you have, even if it hurts.
