Quick Win: How to dumb down your phone with Ryan Shelton

Quick Win: How to dumb down your phone with Ryan Shelton

When Ryan Shelton traded in his iPhone for a flip-phone with no internet connectivity, he took to calling it his SmugPhone, because he felt so smug watching the rest of us stare down at our little pocket computers all day every day. 

He was smug for other reasons, too: the new level of silence allowed for more clarity of thinking, and he quickly noticed he was having more creative ideas more often. He also began to appreciate his in-person interactions more now that he wasn’t entertained by podcasts, music, movies and social media at every moment of...

BEST OF: Embracing Regret: Dan Pink on Learning from Mistakes

There’s a moment in the 2013 comedy movie We’re the Millers that points to how pervasive - and misguided - the “no regrets” life motto has become. A character proudly displays a tattoo that reads, “no rAgrets”, and even more proudly proclaims that he really doesn’t have any regrets. Not even one letter.

Bestselling author Dan Pink highlights this scene as a great metaphor for society’s almost comical underappreciation of regret. Dan is an advocate for the transformative power of looking back on your past actions, processes and routines in order to learn from them, and do bet...

Quick Win: The power of a daily ritual with Susan Carland

How well do you know yourself? Pretty well, you’d think, given you spend all day everyday together! But… how much of that time is quality time, and how much of it is swallowed up by distraction? 

As a practising Muslim, Susan Carland’s been praying five times a day, every day, for decades now. Aside from its religious component, Susan’s fallen in love with the ritualistic element of her daily prayer. As an incredibly busy academic, mother and media personality, her prayer times are often the only peaceful, reflective moments of her day.
