#TalkTech is the “flipped” approach to Twitter chats. We publish all the topics a few hours before the chat so you can show up at 3 pm EST / 12 pm PST on Thursdays ready to discuss. We discuss three topics a week and the chat lasts around 30 minutes.
If you are interested in being a guest curator for TalkTech, let me know!
How might you be standing in your own way? Do you agree with the article?
“Too often we believe if we gain enough information and understanding, we will do something different,” says Majer. “But that just isn’t true.” A bold claim from our first article, which states “transformation requires another level—a capacity to act.” They list 7 big obstacles you might encounter when trying to learn new behaviors or improve yourself. Do you have any additional ones? Do you agree with the 7 listed?
Would you be interested in sleep tracking? Is sleep the next frontier for consumer tech?
“Apple has recently picked up Roy J.E.M Raymann from Philips Research, an expert on sleep research with extensive experience in wearables, sensors, and non-pharmacological methods of improving sleep quality. The possibilities here are absolutely fascinating…”
I would have to agree. It seems like there is a lot of potential for tech related to sleep, things that could really improve the quality of our lives. And then don’t get me started on dreams… So what do YOU think about all this?
How do you stay calm?
“TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.” Are you skilled at handling stress? Do you have any experiences with handling stress, or advice for a fellow worker? But it’s not just about eliminating stress, researchers found that you need a “healthy” level of stress to have optimum performance and motivation. So that brings up the question: how do we find the balance?
