The Tremendous 10 link roundup, #244

  1. Complexity shouldn’t be complicated | “Mechanical watch dials are an excellent example of an industry embracing complexity but not making it complicated. The thought that goes into a feature-rich dial is a good representation of how we think about the synthesis and packaging of complex information into digestible, visual nuggets here at Tremendousness.”
  2. Your ability to focus may be limited to 4 or 5 hours a day. Here’s how to make the most of them. | “My mind gets a little fuzzy when I concentrate for too long. So, to protect my focused time, I rearranged my life, trading a steady salary as a multimedia journalist covering the tech world for flexibility as a freelance writer focusing on health and wellness. Working less, not more, holds the key to my productivity.”
  3. Step aside burnout, it’s toxic productivity’s time to shine | “We unpack the latest byword for extortion under capitalism.”
  4. The Brain-Changing Magic of New Experiences | “The psychological reasons why novelty—from visiting new places to socializing—makes us happier and healthier people.”
  5. 5 Mistakes We Make When We’re Overwhelmed | “When we’re overwhelmed during busy and challenging times, the way we react can actually make things worse. By being aware of the five common patterns overwhelmed people tend to fall into, you can make things easier on yourself and those around you.”
  6. Employees Are Quitting Instead of Giving Up Working From Home | “The drive to get people back into offices is clashing with workers who’ve embraced remote work as the new normal.”
  7. People Are Ready To Log Off Social Media For Good | “We’re so used to putting our entire lives online, but what if we just…didn’t?”
  8. The Grim Secret of Nordic Happiness | “It’s not hygge, the welfare state, or drinking. It’s reasonable expectations.”
  9. Hallelujah! Former studio of ‘nun-turned-artist’ Corita Kent designated historic cultural landmark | “The Hollywood studio where Kent made works challenging social injustice in the 1960s was due to be demolished to make room for a parking lot.”
