10 Unexpected Things That Will Radically Improve Your Life Platitudes won't help you. I know, I've tried to implement them all. They're frustrating. Go for it! Live for today! Stay motivated! No kidding. I'm more interested in how we can radically improve our lives. Here are 10 unexpected things you can do daily to radically improve your life: 1. Four years ago when I launched my agency Silverback Social, I just did it. I still remove the "how" from most of our agency issues. Obsessing over your "how" will only lead you to full-on panic. 2. My dress shirts and suits are all custom-made. When you have clothes that fit well, you feel better. I can select any shirt in my closet and know that the fit is perfect and I will feel and look great all day. 3. Meditation can reduce stress, improve your concentration, and increase happiness. When you're washing your hands today, slow down and really think about how you're washing your hands. Realize that your thoughts and feelings aren't you. 4. I'm also smart enough to know that you can overdo anything. 5.

Become A Stop-Motion Animation Auteur With The NFB's New StopMo Studio App Do you have a Fantastic Mr. Fox or perhaps an even creepier take on The Nightmare Before Christmas in you? StopMo Studio, a new app from the National Film Board of Canada, has made that possible. Even if you have zero experience with animation, you can make stop-motion magic. Canada's animation hub since its launch in 1939, the NFB has become a hotbed of storytelling innovation over the last several years, with its groundbreaking productions like Bear 71, as well as the development of a series of apps. To make a StopMo Studio movie, just hold your iPad camera in front of whatever miniature set you've designed and then take a picture. Stréliski allows that how polished your film looks is dependent on getting comfortable with the technology.

Comment gérer ses articles D'habitude, la remise des prix igNobel est l'occasion d'un article ici. Mais plutôt que de vous résumer les recherches les plus loufoques primées comme d'autres l'ont très bien fait, je vais plutôt les utiliser comme exemples en terminant enfin l'article promis à la fin de "Comment gérer sa bibliothèque". Un scientifique, ça lit beaucoup. Et vite, souvent en diagonale, voire seulement l' "abstract" et les "références". L'abstract pour décider si l'article mérite une lecture plus approfondie, et les "références" listées en fin d'article pour identifier d'autres articles potentiellement intéressants à lire. Pour une thèse, comptez un bon millier d'articles à bibliographier, dont quelques centaines à citer dans vos propres articles et mémoire. Et là vous allez découvrir la jungle. Pas étonnant donc que les premiers logiciels de gestion bibliographiques datent des tout débuts de l'informatique personnelle. Alors, Zotero ou Mendeley ? Références:

My Company Tried Slack For Two Years. This Is Why We Quit. Three years ago, our remote company joined Slack. Until then, we had relied on a mix of email and an internal tool called Wedoist for all our communication. But our steadily growing team based across several time zones made it hard to stay on the same page and feel cohesive. Something had to change. But then, two years in, we decided to quit Slack cold turkey. Group chat apps like Slack are built for a specific kind of communication –one-line-at-a-time, real-time conversations. Related: Slacklash: Group Messaging Apps Are Stressing Some People Out It Was Addictive Because conversations in Slack happen on a one-way conveyor belt, our team began feeling like they had to stay constantly connected to keep up. It Was Built For Shallow Conversations Slack was useful for quickly checking on things, but we found that it was a troublesome channel for big-picture discussions. Even when conversations stayed on topic, everything still required an immediate response. It Was Disorganized Real Time Off

Productivity Isn’t About Time Management. It’s About Attention Management. According to conventional wisdom about time management, you’re supposed to set goals for when you want to finish a task. I decided to try it for this article. The target was 1,200 words, so I sat down at 8 a.m. and gave myself three hours, which would allow me to write at the leisurely pace of six words per minute. I then spent the next six minutes writing a grand total of zero words, staring at a flashing cursor. The only task I completed was a Google search of whether the cursor was named in honor of all the writers who have cursed it. (Yes, I know you’re mocking me, you poor blinking excuse for a rectangle.) Eventually I got frustrated and shifted to attention management. So instead of focusing on how quickly I wanted to finish this article, I asked why I agreed to write it in the first place: I might learn something new when synthesizing the research; I’d finally have somewhere to point people when they ask about productivity; and it might help some of those people.

Essentialism - The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown Have you ever found yourself stretched too thin? Do you sometimes feel overworked and underutilized? Do you feel motion sickness instead of momentum? Does your day sometimes get hijacked by someone else’s agenda? Have you ever said “yes” simply to please and then resented it? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist. The Way of the Essentialist involves doing less, but better, so you can make the highest possible contribution. The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown draws on experience and insight from working with the leaders of the most innovative companies in the world to show how to achieve the disciplined pursuit of less. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter.

Un MDM pour gérer les tablettes de l'école Au-delà d'un certain nombre de tablettes, il devient difficile de gérer celles-ci ainsi que les applications installées, voire même les profils des groupes utilisateurs ou tout simplement de géolocaliser la tablette éventuellement perdue ! Comme également réinitialiser l'ensemble des tablettes d'un simple clic... Les entreprises utilisent pour gérer leur parc de tablettes, mobiles, etc. généralement un MDM (Mobile Device Management). Pour les écoles, le coût d'un MDM peut être prohibitif - à titre d'exemple un MDM pour une trentaine de tablettes tourne autour des 1000 € HT - et parfois il faut ajouter un abonnement annuel. Pour une dizaine de tablettes on peut utiliser simplement le gestionnaire de périphérique du Google Store (si les tablettes sont sous Android) et avec une méthode assez répétitive on peut déployer des applications automatiquement sur l'ensemble des tablettes. Le principal défaut de Meraki est qu'il n'est disponible qu'en anglais actuellement.
