Why the death of net neutrality would be a disaster for libraries | Good Advice | Scoop.it
A Q&A with Lynne Bradley, the director of government relations with the American Library Association's Washington office.
Karen Bowden's insight:

Don’t give up your eyes for an iPhone

Don’t give up your eyes for an iPhone | Good Advice | Scoop.it
The biggest knock on smartphones is that all the apps, emails, viral videos, and text messages drive us to distraction, if not off the road. Spending half the day staring into a four-inch screen may also wreck one’s eyesight, new research suggests – and the devices may not be to blame so much as how we hold them.

The Neo-Generalist

The Neo-Generalist | Good Advice | Scoop.it

In their new book The Neo-Generalist, authors Kenneth Mikkelsen and Richard Martin claim that our cultural, societal and professional worlds are enthralled by extreme and inhibitory specialisation, and that it is time to make a change. They argue that now more than ever, we need the outlook of the ‘neo-generalist’ if we want to thrive in an uncertain future.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 18, 2017 9:26 AM

Many of the lessons presented in The Neo-Generalist are drawn from interviews with professionals, artists, writers, scientists, athletes and film makers, as well as from historical figures that each in their separate ways embody the neo-generalist approach to work and life. This diverse cast of characters underlines a point central to the book: that there is no fixed, one-way approach to neo-generalism, and that what Mikkelsen and Martin are describing is more of a mindset than a how-to guide. Read our interview with Mikkelsen and Martin here.

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Procrastination improves creativity
Art is never finished, only abandoned.” — Leonardo da Vinci
Everything left undone is always still very much on your mind most of the time. You get to think about it more often than tasks you have completed. This encourages you to think about new ways to improve or do it better.

 

Adrienne Branson of Canva says:
“Unfinished work is hard for your mind to let go of — in a good way. Your mind keeps churning, considering other options, creative solutions to the problem. Ever had a project that you just couldn’t stop talking, thinking, or dreaming about? This is how you make that happen.”

 

"The procrastination thought process works best for people who are working on innovative projects and need creative ideas for solve pending problems. You probably won’t benefit from procrastination if you have to deliver on tasks at the office and have strict deadlines to meet.

 

"Innovators and creative professionals use procrastination to their benefit more often than everyone else. Leonardo Da Vinci was a famous procrastinator. He finished the Mona Lisa in 1517 despite having started it in 1503."

You can seek to impose order on your inbox all you like – but eventually you’ll need to confront the fact that the deluge of messages, and the urge you feel to get them all dealt with, aren’t really about technology. They’re manifestations of larger, more personal dilemmas. Which paths will you pursue, and which will you abandon? Which relationships will you prioritise, during your shockingly limited lifespan, and who will you resign yourself to disappointing? What matters?
