Want to Be Smarter and More Emotionally Intelligent, and to Laugh More? Start Reading These 10 Writers Today | Mikron Digital Imaging | Scoop.it

In turn, when we read work that affects us this way, it's natural we want to share with others. Here are 10 writers I feel have made me smarter and more emotionally intelligent, and have provided great laughs. I read them every chance I get.

1. Isabelle Roughol

With a professional blogging platform that now boasts over one million users, LinkedIn is quickly changing the publishing world as we know it. Isabelle Roughol, an international editor for LinkedIn, demonstrates one reason why.

 

Roughol's daily "Must Reads" column is concise, well-sourced, and very well written. She's my go-to in the morning for catching up on the day's most important news, even before The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal. A self-proclaimed Millennial, her sharp and humorous style is personable enough to speak to multiple generations.

5 Habits To Improve Brain Growth

5 Habits To Improve Brain Growth | Mikron Digital Imaging | Scoop.it

We’d all love our brains to process information faster and have better memory recall. While you might think doing crossword puzzles, math puzzles like Sudoku, or brain-training apps will keep your brain in top shape, Dr. Jennifer Jones, a psychologist and expert in the science of success, says there’s no real proof that these can improve your mental acuity. She offers some daily practices that can truly grow your brain:

Brain Growth Habit #1: Rise With The Sun And Go To Sleep Not Long After Sunset.

 

Moving in your circadian rhythm is the best way to improve your brain power, according to Jones. When our sleep cycle is disrupted, our brain’s ability to process information and consolidate stress is inhibited. "Our cognitive abilities don’t work the way they should," says Jones.

9 Habits of Profoundly Influential People

9 Habits of Profoundly Influential People | Mikron Digital Imaging | Scoop.it

Influential people have a profound impact on everyone they encounter. Yet, they achieve this only because they exert so much influence inside, on themselves.We see only their outside.We see them innovate, speak their mind, and propel themselves forward toward bigger and better things.And, yet, we’re missing the best part.The confidence and wherewithal that make their influence possible are earned. It’s a labour of love that influential people pursue behind the scenes, every single day.

3D Printing Is Changing the Way We Think

3D Printing Is Changing the Way We Think | Mikron Digital Imaging | Scoop.it
Surveys indicate that more than 30 percent of the top 300 largest global brands are now using or evaluating 3D printing (often with printing technology in-house) whether for prototyping and other innovation projects or in actual production of what they sell. Over 200 universities and colleges already offer 3D coursework in their curricula – covering aspects of not only 3D printing but also 3D scanning and design. To my mind, there is no question that 3D has reached, as Dartmouth’s Richard D’Aveni argues in a recent HBR article, a tipping point.
