TED Talk: Stefan Sagmeister - The power of a sabbatical

TED Talks Every seven years, designer Stefan Sagmeister closes his New York studio for a yearlong sabbatical to rejuvenate and refresh their creative outlook.
Vicky Ellam-Dyson's insight:

Stefan 'borrowed' 5 of his retirement years and used them to take time out from work to relax and seek inspiration, 1 year every 7 years. A sabbatical may seem like an unachievable luxury but Stefan clearly and humourously explains the benefits for his business and on a personal level.

No-one is Perfect!

No-one is Perfect! | Personal Development Psychology | Scoop.it
Vicky Ellam-Dyson's insight:

The term 'perfectionist' is banded about quite freely these days, often used to describe people who have a tendendcy to pay excessive attention to detail. These may be people in the workplace, for example, who get anxious about things not being perfect, strive for flawlessness, think they can do it best, and may criticise others attempts. They can often appear quite stressed and angry. Historically, however, perfectionism has been treated as a more serious condition, with much of the research focused in the clinical world.

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 2013 8:03 AM

(From the article): New research from the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging suggests that people who meditate show more gray matter in certain regions of the brain, show stronger connections between brain regions and show less age-related brain atrophy. In other words, meditation might make your brain bigger, faster, and "younger". As lead researcher Eileen Luders explains, "it appears to be a powerful mental exercise with the potential to change the physical structure of the brain."
