Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

This is a fine recap of the latest insights and research in this field. Good work from David Rock, who is the founder of the Neuro Leadership Institute. I had the pleasure of talking to David a few years ago for an article about the influence of neuro science in our modern business world.

(From the article): We live in a time when where more people are staying connected on vacations. People have forgotten how important it is for your mind to rejuvenate. Research shows that naps improve productivity—a growing body of evidence shows that taking regular breaks from mental tasks improves productivity and creativity — and that skipping breaks can lead to stress and exhaustion.

Hi Karen.
Wow! score of 91! I have my students starting their 10-week project this week. If you you have a few sentences of advice, I would be glad to pass it on to them.
Best wishes.

Hi Ken! Yep, pretty proud of that score :) Here's my advice -- write reviews and add tags. Both are invaluable and make the distinction between an 'aggregator' of information and a curator who carefully selects, reviews, comments, and catalogs the articles to create a meaningful context for readers. Sounds like a fun class! Looking forward to hearing more about it.
