You Don't Succeed By Working 130 Hours Each Week

Mark Hillary | Posted 18.08.2017 | UK
Mark Hillary

There are 168 hours in total in one week. If you sleep for eight hours each night then the total time left in a week is just 112 hours - less that the 130 hours that Mayer suggests it is possible to be at work. The idea that working all night is something that should be regularly expected is also nonsense.

Ignore the cynical business bashing by politicians playing to a gallery that is not listening. Smart voters know that entrepreneurship and innovation fuel greater national and personal prosperity.

The first thing we do when we wake up is to check our emails. The last we do before going to bed is to check our emails. In the middle of the night we check our emails. Yes, sleep checking is the 21st century's sleep walking. Funny how you don't remember responding to that particular call to action. Sorry, but it's too late now. T

What Television Can Learn From Yahoo

Dawn Airey | Posted 29.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Dawn Airey

Television is still the ultimate lean-forward experience. It has shown that it can embrace digital opportunities, and is now beginning to understand how its content can be delivered and monetised worldwide in a way that wasn't possible ten years ago. As Darwin pointed out, you don't have to be the strongest to survive, you just need to be adaptable, and TV has shown that it can be just that. But there are still reefs ahead on which TV could founder. Television may be adaptable, but it is not very good at changing course quickly.
