  1. Digital Overload: Your Brain On Gadgets : NPR

    The constant stream of information we get through mobile and hand-held devices is changing the way we think. Matt Richtel, a technology writer for The New York Times, explains how the use of digital technology is altering our brains — and how retreating into nature may reverse the effects.

  2. Great Work Interview - Merlin Mann

    http://www.boxofcrayons.biz/2009/11/great-work-interview-merlin-mann/

    Here’s a confession. I want to be able to think like Merlin Mann.

    He’s really smart on the topic of productivity, and in fact some part of his success comes from 43Folders.com which is a reference to David Allen’s Getting Things Done system. But his work is not just about productivity. It’s about creativity and purpose and striving to stay human and sane in a busy and distracting world and doing work that matters, doing Great Work. And he does all of this in funny, provocative, iconoclastic way.

    In fact, writing this introduction and listening to the interview again has already provoked me to shift some of my own commitments in an effort to, as he puts it, “identify and destroy small return bullshit. Shut off anything that’s noisier than it is useful.” Great stuff indeed, and this is a wise and funny interview.

    In our conversation we talk about:

    * How the present is a “remedial course for the future” – and the pros and cons of those ‘creation myth’ stories of where people find clues for their Great Work
    * The importance of an open heart and just where that might lead you
    * The connection between productivity and creativity
    * The two levels of prioritization (and how freeing it is to know that)
    * And quite a bit more
    

    You can follow Merlin on Twitter at http://twitter.com/hotdogsladies

    The interviews are all between 25 and 30 minutes long. You can either download them here as mp3s, or go to iTunes, type in “Great Work Interviews” and you’ll see them all there.

  3. MaxFunCon Podcast Episode 11: Merlin Mann

    Merlin Mann shared his thoughts on creativity and producing creative work in a very popular talk at last year’s MaxFunCon.

    Maybe you couldn’t make it in 2009. Well, luckily enough for you, Merlin will be joining us again this year. In anticipation of next week’s podcast, in which Jesse will be talking to him about his upcoming book, we’re sharing the advice he gave at MaxFunCon 2009.

    Merlin is great at breaking down the process of making art, or writing, or however you choose to be awesome and helping you think clearly about how you can stop stalling and just get started. So what are you waiting for?
