MIT Professor: To Be Happier and More Productive, Spend 30 Minutes Each Day ‘Wasting Time’

Posted on May 18th, 2018 by The Learning Factor

Technology is making it difficult for us to just think anymore. With this super simple habit, you can regain the time and space you need to recharge.

 

Today, my life is packed with activities and distractions. From the moment I wake up, before I’ve even crawled out of bed for my first essential cup of coffee, I’m already plugged into work via email, and I can find out what’s happening in the world with a glance of my news feeds on Facebook and LinkedIn. After waking and feeding my kids and walking them to the bus stop, I jump in my car and head to the office, where I open my laptop to a constantly growing pile of tasks and projects and initiatives.

Your Compliance Training Sucks, And Here’s How To Fix It

Posted on April 6th, 2018 by The Learning Factor

It’s kind of amazing that you clicked on an article with “compliance training” in the headline, such is the revulsion with which that experience is typically–and often deservedly–greeted. But it’s a good thing you did. The policies covered in most compliance-training programs are extremely important for keeping the organization from violating laws and regulations, not to mention preserving a safe, inclusive work culture.
