Multi-tasking is not a superpower, it’s a weakness – without mastery, digital distractions are causing more harm than good

Multi-tasking is not a superpower, it’s a weakness – without mastery, digital distractions are causing more harm than good

It’s 2021, the second year in a row that SXSW is not being held live in Austin. During the last, live SXSW, I launched my latest, and first personal book on individual empowerment to overcome our social dilemma. Algorithms have certainly earned their wages lately as it’s time for the virtual edition of SXSW 2021 and I’m flooded, thankfully, with memories of 2019. During the craziness of the Lifescale launch at SXSW 2019 in Austin Texas, I met the international…

Speaking To and Through People You Hope to Inspire: Analog-to-Digital Street Flyers That Hit Different

This is the week of SXSW 2021. Even though it’s a virtual event this year, it is still a special community bound by the spirit of entrepreneurship, creativity, ideation, friendship, and tacos (+ BBQ, queso, pedicabs, and late nights!) Since this is a very special week, I wanted to share a story with you that I don’t think I’ve ever talked about. Every year, going back to, 2007 I think, JESS3 and I would legally (on plastic coverings) post creative…

Rewired for Distractions vs. Rewiring for Intent

Rewired for Distractions vs. Rewiring for Intent

Part of me wishes that LifeScale was released in 2020. I know, I know, it’s not the most popular year. But it is the year that we were, en masse, informed about our “social dilemma” and also further thrust into living a digital-first life at work and at home, which basically became the same thing, i.e. WFH, WFHLife, work from home, work from anywhere, remote work, et al. Early in 2020, as lockdowns were in their initial onset (in some…

It’s Hard to Live Your Best Life When You’ve not Yet Discovered Your Best Self

“Every day, it’s important to ask and answer these questions: ‘What’s good in my life?’ and ‘What needs to be done?’” – Nathaniel Branden Do you ever feel like you can’t keep up with everything? Do you ever feel like you can’t stop trying to keep up? Do you ever feel like if you stop, you’ll lose your relevance or status? Do you ever feel like enough is never enough and too much at the same time? I guess, in…

A new year, a new you… The year was 2019. The place was Austin, Texas, during SXSW.

There, I shared research and insights into my latest book, along with digital transformation, the future of brand, the impact of digital distractions, and the importance of living a more creative life. After all this time, I’m proud to finally share the results of that session…

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Innovation in an Era of Digital Distractions

Have you watched the “Social Dilemma” on Netflix yet? It explores the previously unknown, ignored, and dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations. I spent two years doing the same, most notably, with many of the players featured in the documentary. While social networking and gaming have rewired our brains and bodies, what the documentary, and most other experts and approaches leave us without, is a solution. I’m not a believer…
