Maybe it depends on the obligation, but sometimes we need to get something done immediately, while other times you wonder how you blinked and it became 8pm on a Friday night with a half-baked assignment you must submit within a few hours. 

Here's an interesting look at pre-crastination and procrastination

Ever notice that it is getting harder for you to focus and learn new tasks?  There are lots of sleep articles out there, but this one utilizes metaphors wonderfully to explain sleep and the synaptic activities occurring behind our eyes.

Read the full story here

Our favorite part:

And in fact, you actually have some control over what your brain decides to delete while you sleep. It's the synaptic connections you don’t use that get marked for recycling. The ones you do use are the ones that get watered and oxygenated. So be mindful of what you’re thinking about.If you spend too much time reading theories about the end of Game of Thronesand very little on your job, guess which synapses are going to get marked for recycling?

While it's good to vent and get your emotions out instead of allowing it to steadily build like a sleeping volcano, being around constant negativity is a real downer.

Turns out it's also very unhealthy as well.  You can read all about it here.

Our favorite part:

So let's boil that down--having a thought makes it easier for you to have that thought again. That's not good news for the perpetually gloomy...It gets worse, too. Not only do repeated negative thoughts make it easier to think yet more negative thoughts, they also make it more likely that negative thoughts will occur to you just randomly walking down the street.

A Person Who Hasn't Used Money in 17 Years via @thepennyhoarder #imagine #learn #culture

What is money?

No, we aren't going to dive that deep into this blog post, but if you've ever wondered what life would be like without using money, look no further than the life of German psychotherapist Heidemarie Schwermer.

The story of her fascinating life devoid of money for 17 YEARS is here.

Our favorite part:


Schwermer’s story is a fantastic reminder that in the end, money is just a utility — a key that unlocks your freedom to travel, move to a different city… or, yes, make a purchase.But if you take the time to figure out what you value and what makes you authentically happy, you may discover you don’t need money to get what you really want out of life.
