7 Cities That Are Starting To Go Car-Free | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
Urban planners are finally recognizing that streets should be designed for people, not careening hunks of deadly metal.


After over a hundred years of living with cars, some cities are slowly starting to realize that the automobile doesn't make a lot of sense in the urban context. It isn't just the smog or the traffic deaths; in a city, cars aren't even a convenient way to get around.

The web has stolen my creativity. I need the time and space to think … | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Mark Zuckerberg may have discovered the book but Facebook – and the rest of the web – is the enemy of deep thought

'------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For anyone who wants to write a book, however, the internet is probably the greatest enemy to attention and concentrated thought, both for the writer and potential readers. It works in partnership with the mind – trained during years of internet use – not be able to concentrate on any one thing for more than 90 seconds.

 

The cost of this butterfly attention span is creativity. There is no space and time among the constant digestion of competing stories, picture, videos, messages and emails. For every instructional video and the remarkable luxury of real-time global instant messaging, there is, on a bad day, a thousand punchlines, a thousand cannibal comment threads, an endless river of pouting, over made-up selfies all demanding your attention and once they have it, they send it off elsewhere.

5 Habits of People With Remarkable Willpower

5 Habits of People With Remarkable Willpower | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Willpower is not something you either have or you don't.

Sure, some people may be more self-disciplined than you. Some people may be better at resisting temptation than you. But that's probably not because they were born with some certain special something inside them--instead, they've found ways to store up their willpower and use it when it really matters.

They have remarkable willpower not because they have more of it, but because they've learned how to best use what they have.

Here's how you can, too:


1. Eliminate as many choices as possible.

2. Make choices tonight that set up tomorrow.

3. Do the hardest thing you need to do first.

4. Refuel frequently.

5. Create reminders of long-term goals.

Why Are Resolutions So Hard To Follow? | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Starting a new habit is hard, and breaking a bad habit is even harder.


While many of us assume that the key to changing our habits is having enough willpower, social scientists say our will to change is only a small factor that contributes to our ability to follow through with habit-changing resolutions.

10 Good Communication Skills You Absolutely Must Know | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Every relationship you have is impacted by your ability — or inability — to communicate well.


Whether at work, in your love life, or with friends and family, good communication fosters better understanding, helps us resolve differences, promotes mutual trust and respect, and allows creative ideas to flourish.


Although communication seems fairly simple and straightforward, so much of our communication is misunderstood or misinterpreted. Of course, this can cause conflict and wounded feelings in personal and professional relationships.

Five reasons why we should all learn how to do nothing

Five reasons why we should all learn how to do nothing | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
Are today’s always-connected, crazily busy lifestyles affecting our health? Give yourself a break – your brain needs downtime

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The idea that “doing nothing” is a skill to be learned might seem bewildering at first. Surely it’s just a question of stopping doing anything else? Yet that’s far easier said than done. It’s long been recognised – by everyone from the Buddha to John Keats – that “doing” can be a kind of compulsion, an addiction we only fail to acknowledge as such because society praises us for it. Indeed, learning how to do nothing might be the most vital skill for thriving in our frenetic, overwhelmed, always-connected culture. Here are five key reasons why:
