We rarely have time these days to stop, to pause, to think and more importantly to observe things around us. The smart (or dumb) phone, depending on your point of view, has drawn our attention and taken up even those few extra minutes of spare time that we have.

Slumped Over Your Desk? You and Everyone Else.

The business world seems to have woken up in the last 48 hours. It's September, the schools have re-opened and people are sleepwalking back to work after a summer break. But just because we are physically back-at-work, it doesn't mean we are all mentally and emotionally there - the lights are on, but nobody is home in many cases.

Is Time Travel Possible?

The surprising answer is: nobody knows. Physicists, despite trying for almost a century to rule it out, have so far failed. The known laws of physics do not forbid time travel. In fact, they appear to make it easy - at least in principle.

The main culprit is not the curriculum content or assessment design or even the management style. It's actually the lack of space and time within the structure that causes so much of the stress and disharmony. Education toxicity swells as basic human needs are left unattended in the system.

Carpe Diem

Each of us has grieved or will grieve in our lives at some point: a tragic death of a spouse; an unthinkable loss of a child; the memory of a lost friend - humanity inevitably will rob us of someone we love. It is at those poignant moments when we will stop and notice time itself.

Right, you bunch of lazy bastards. It's time to wake up, slap yourself in the face and realise that you're all living a lie. There is no such thing as not having enough time. It's an excuse, an illusion.

Those who are inconsiderate, selfish, mean, or generally repellant to people - they tend to upset this equilibrium. At the other end of the scale, there are those who give the extra mile. These are the people that become successful. And all that giving makes them happier people.

Are you Smart With Your Time?

Being smart with your time doesn't mean you do more work. It means you get smarter around the tasks that matter. Using time smartly means not focusing on how busy you are but on results. Staying an extra hour at work at the end of the day may not be the most effective way to manage your time.

The Tube: Don't Cross The Line

Public transport is a common method of travel by many people across the globe, yet somehow some people still haven't mastered the art of getting it right. We have people that seem to think that they are the only one in a rush to get to a certain place, that they are the only one on the tube or that nobody around them has any transport requirements.

Time: An Overrated Healer

Ziad Abu-Saud | Posted 18.08.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Ziad Abu-Saud

The general assumption that 'time heals' makes people do nothing about their emotional pains. It validates the idea that prolonged anxiety or depression will eventually just go away. Even the language of 'moving on' implies that some kind of temporal 'passing' is required to get over something. This is simply not true.

Is Being On Time A Dying Tradition?

This week I went on a dreadful training course, one I'll forget quicker than what I was supposed to learn. On the first day, I was slightly late. It was a combination of not being able to use the maps on my iPhone properly thanks to Apple's recent updates, and my inability to navigate round buildings that are circular.

Recently, I was listening to the story of Felix Baumgartner as I was getting ready to go to work. Baumgartner is an Austrian extreme athlete who was aiming to break the sound barrier in a supersonic skydive over New Mexico. He was planning to jump from a capsule floated 23 miles into the stratosphere by a huge helium balloon, and Chris Evans was getting very excited about it all.

Zakaria, who is the editor at large for Time Magazine and host of a popular newsy talk show on the partner site, CNN, was found to have lifted an entire paragraph of material from another journalist without citing it or attributing it.
