Don’t Be the Next Brian Williams: 10 Ways to Avoid False Memories

Don’t Be the Next Brian Williams: 10 Ways to Avoid False Memories | Brain Bonanza | Scoop.it

No More Bullsh*t: I Won't Talk To You Unless You Say Something Real | Brain Bonanza | Scoop.it
Nothing is real, and nothing is actually being said. It’s all just noise -- annoying, unproductive noise.
No Boxes's insight:

I couldn't say this any better.  It is SO who I am. I have no time for bullshit or people who don't listen because they're so busy spouting empty words. Maybe it is because I'm getting older, but silence is better than meaningless conversation.

2/3 of today’s employees feel “overwhelmed.” The concepts of work-life balance have been lost, thanks to a proliferation of technology and the breakdown in barriers between work and life.

Anxiety is now the top issue facing children – driven largely by our “always on” lifestyle.

Corporate Wellness doesn't just address physical health. The stress, anxiety and long hours need to be part of this, although the Affordable Healthcare Act doesn't cover this, which is the impetus behind many corporate wellness programs.

A great article on listening, which is gives great tips for anyone doing collection, interviewing for a job or even in your personal life. A 2006 study of college students showed they spent about 24% of their time listening to others face to face or in groups, down from 53% in 1980. I imagine this is also why many people aren't good listeners. We get less practice, and unfortunately society often rewards clever speakers.
