Quit Your Job Without Quitting (To See If It’s What You Really Want) A note from Jonathan: Every day I get emails from people asking if they should quit their job right now to do what they “really want to do,” or if they should wait and follow a plan. In nearly every case, my answer is “Yes, you should absolutely have a plan. Why would you want to come crawling back to your employer because you didn’t think things through?” That’s why I love this essay from Ben. His story and what he’s learned will help you to be able to “quit without quitting” to see if it’s even something you want, before you take the plunge.… Click to read more Self Development Tools to Follow Your Dreams

Wired Science presents an article on research by psychologists Daniele Marzoli and Luca Tommasi of the University G. d’Annunzio in Italy. In this study, done in dance clubs in Italy (Who says research can't be fun?), 172 subjects were approached by a researcher and asked for a cigarette.

Matt's Idea Blog | Matthew Cornell - Time Management, Productivity Expert [Cross-posted to Quantified Self] We experiment on ourselves and track the results to improve the way we work, our health, and our personal lives.

50+ Personal Productivity Blogs You’ve Never Heard of Before (and about a dozen you probably have) - Stepcase Lifehack The personal productivity niche on the Web has grown by leaps and bounds since Lifehack launched only a few years ago. While a few sites dominate the rankings, there are lots and lots of lesser-known sites that are as good or even better than the “A-list” productivity blogs. Most of them are solo operations — the GTD newbie documenting his or her quest for greater control over their life, the coach or consultant sharing his or her knowledge with the world, the writer adding to his or her published work with notes, errata, and new findings.

Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle, which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. How is this possible? How is this healthy? Alternate Sleep Cycles

Photo Credit: DeeMayGreaves I used to love gossiping – chewing on a juicy story about where someone’s boyfriend was seen after the party, or the story behind how that colleague really got fired. It was a great way to bond with my friends and family, made for lively conversation, and even seemed to make me feel better about myself. Here’s how Random House Dictionary defines gossip: Idle talk or rumor, esp. about the personal or private affairs of others.
