flow state, man thinking, positivity
Psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is perhaps best known for saying that a state of consciousness that makes an experience genuinely satisfying can be called a “flow state.” I often see people complaining about not having focus and not being able to concentrate on one thing.

While you may think that you need to tread very carefully with what you say to your boss, you might be playing it too safe. I’ve interviewed a lot of CEOs over the years, and the majority of them tell me they like to hear often from the people who work for them. This helps...
Have you ever missed a deadline? If so, you aren’t alone. Even the most conscientious worker will occasionally fall behind, especially when faced with a demanding task list.

Startups are forgoing exorbitant engineering salaries for the more reasonably priced but equal-quality work of an outsourced IT staff. Silicon Valley is largely considered the global leader in technology, with firms in the area competing for the highly-skilled developers and engineers located there. According to a new report though, U.S.-born engineers are leaving quicker than...
When you hear his footsteps, you’re filled with dread. You just know your overbearing boss is on his way to ask you if you’ve finished that report yet.
