  • How to Catch the Winds of Luck

    If you need some more motivation to power you through these cold, dark and rainy October days, this week's Q Recommends post recommending TED talk with Tina Seelig will be exactly what you needed to keep you energised and motivated to work hard towards your dreams. 

    In her insightful talk, Stanford engineering school professor Tina Seelig talks about the luck, and  shares some unexpected ways to increase your luck -- and your ability to see and seize opportunities. She reveals, that luck is rarely a lightning strike, isolated and dramatic -- it's much more like the wind, blowing constantly. Catching more of it is easy but not obvious. Taking small risks might be a great way to increase your chances of luck and starting to build a sail that will help you to catch these winds of luck. 

    Watching this 11 minute TED talk while having a delicious cup of coffee is a sure-proof way to give you motivation and energy to be the greatest version of yourself.  

     

  • The secret to boost your productivity - rest more!

    More and more of us find ourselves unable to juggle overwhelming demands and maintain a seemingly unsustainable pace. Paradoxically, the best way to get more done may be to spend more time doing less. A new and growing body of multidisciplinary research shows that strategic renewal — including daytime workouts, short afternoon naps, longer sleep hours, more time away from the office and longer, more frequent vacations — boosts productivity, job performance and, of course, health.
