Productivity
In 2020, students finished the final months of their school year online. The experience was frustrating and highlighted the problems with trying to keep kids focused on school and productivity. Now a new school year has begun, with many students (and parents) navigating online-only education once more. The new learning environment has already proven troublesome...
employees talking, communication
There are many aspects of business that get harder as you grow, but that doesn’t make them any less important. One such aspect is communication. The more employees you have, the harder it is to connect with all of them openly. However, if you want to keep a healthy work environment, effectively communicating with everyone...
At the end of a busy day it can be easy to find yourself overwhelmed by the volume of tasks you may still have left to do. Your first instinct might be to shut your computer off as soon as you wrap up and get as far away from the office as possible. However, this...

Your morning routine. They’re all the rage right now. Tim Ferriss makes his bed, meditates, does push-ups, writes in his journal and drinks water.

Curiosity plays a part in creative thinking, which in turn helps you solve problems more efficiently and improves workplace productivity levels. A 2018 review of recent research in Harvard Business Review shows that when organizations and entrepreneurs encourage curiosity at all...
employees talking, communication
Meaningful discussions at work matter because we spend so much time there. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American works 34.5 weekly hours, or roughly 20 percent of each week. Assuming workers get an average of seven hours of sleep a night, that means we spend almost 30 percent of all our waking time on the job....
