La montagne ou la forme du monde

Trail. Why time management is ruining our lives. The eternal human struggle to live meaningfully in the face of inevitable death entered its newest phase one Monday in the summer of 2007, when employees of Google gathered to hear a talk by a writer and self-avowed geek named Merlin Mann.

Why time management is ruining our lives

Their biggest professional problem was email, the digital blight that was colonising more and more of their hours, squeezing out time for more important work, or for having a life. And Mann, a rising star of the “personal productivity” movement, seemed like he might have found the answer. He called his system “Inbox Zero”, and the basic idea was simple enough. 3 Idiots.

During their initial sessions, they can lift only a small amount of weight. We’re not going back to normal. To stop coronavirus we will need to radically change almost everything we do: how we work, exercise, socialize, shop, manage our health, educate our kids, take care of family members.

We all want things to go back to normal quickly. But what most of us have probably not yet realized—yet will soon—is that things won’t go back to normal after a few weeks, or even a few months. Some things never will. You can read all our coverage of the coronavirus/Covid-19 outbreak for free, and also sign up for our coronavirus newsletter.

It’s now widely agreed (even by Britain, finally) that every country needs to “flatten the curve”: impose social distancing to slow the spread of the virus so that the number of people sick at once doesn’t cause the health-care system to collapse, as it is threatening to do in Italy right now.

Staying Rational During a Pandemic: Join Dan Ariely Live on Instagram @Qapital - Qapital

The spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic has impacted nearly every American, with 75% of the population under “Stay at Home” or “Shelter in Place” orders, and more than 16 million Americans filing for unemployment since the onset of the crisis. Meanwhile, many are fortunate to be working from home, but they have to juggle childcare and home maintenance on top of their usual workload and stress. Living through this pandemic is a recipe for making irrational decisions – and that’s why we enlisted our Chief Behavioral Economist, Dan Ariely, for a series of Instagram Live sessions on @Qapital. If you aren’t following us yet, this is a good time to do so. Each session will deal with a different way COVID-19 has the potential to make us act irrationally, and how to curb those urges. Propositions pour un retour sur Terre. Entendre cette clameur des vivants qui habitent avec nous la Terre est devenu une affaire de vie ou de mort.

L'ÉTAT DE SIÈGE - Espace Pierre Cardin (Théâtre de la Ville)

Un théâtre pour aujourd’hui. « L’état de siège est proclamé », ainsi parle le tyran surgi d’on ne sait où, qui vient prendre le pouvoir dans cette ville tranquille, morte, soumise à un Gouverneur dont le désir est qu’il ne se passe rien. L’opportuniste se nomme la Peste. C’est une fable politique. Behavioral Scientist's Summer Book List 2020. Pools are closed.
