  1. How to stop languishing and start finding flow

    Have you found yourself staying up late, joylessly bingeing TV shows and doomscrolling through the news, or simply navigating your day uninspired and aimless? Chances are you’re languishing, says organizational psychologist Adam Grant — a psychic malaise that has become all too common after many months of the pandemic. He breaks down the key indicators of languishing and presents three ways to escape that "meh" feeling and start finding your flow.

  2. SREcon19 Europe/Middle East/Africa - Pushing through Friction

    Note: This talk contains language that some viewers may find objectionable.

    Pushing through Friction

    Dan Na, Squarespace

    Things are broken. The deployment pipeline is painfully slow. Your engineering team has doubled in the last year and there’s a lack of sufficient process and management. You git blame a file that’s used everywhere but nobody understands it; the person who wrote it left the company five years ago.

    As a senior-level engineering leader, experience tells you things could be better. You see the gaps. If only the company adopted policy A or dumped technology B, everyone would benefit. But there’s so much inertia. The company has always used B. You are frustrated. Can you actually make a difference?

    Yes. You are encountering organizational friction, and learning to identify, accept and push through friction is a key skill of engineering leaders. In this talk, Dan will talk about why organizational friction occurs and how to mitigate it. The ability to push through friction will distinguish you throughout your career.

  4. How The ‘Lost Art’ Of Breathing Can Impact Sleep And Resilience

    Humans typically take about 25,000 breaths per day — often without a second thought. But the COVID-19 pandemic has put a new spotlight on respiratory illnesses and the breaths we so often take for granted.

    Journalist James Nestor became interested in the respiratory system years ago after his doctor recommended he take a breathing class to help his recurring pneumonia and bronchitis.

  5. Scott Hanselman – Scaling Yourself

    This presentation was recorded at GOTO Aarhus 2012. #gotocon #gotoaar http://gotocon.com

    Scott Hanselman - Principal Program Manager, Microsoft

    ABSTRACT As information workers, we are asked to absorb even more information than ever before. More blogs, more documentation, more patterns, more layers of abstraction. Now Twitter and Facebook compete with Email and Texts for our attention, keeping us up-to-date on our friends dietary details and movie attendance second-by-second. Does all this information take a toll on your psyche or sharpen the saw? Is it a matter of finding the right tools and filters to capture what you need, or do you just need to unplug. Is ZEB (zero email bounce) a myth or are there substantive techniques for prioritizing your life on the web? Come see Scott’s famous "Scaling Yourself" talk, adapted to take only 15 minutes of your time!

  6. Moving Beyond Less Bad | Matt Stinchcomb | TEDxWashingtonSquare

    Matt Stinchcomb challenges us to reimagine business in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Moving beyond the notion of striving for "less bad", the idea behind the Good Work Institute is a new paradigm of business education that teaches entrepreneurs how to honor self, the planet and community with wisdom, compassion and ethics.

    MATT STINCHCOMB is the Executive Director of Good Work Institute (formerly, etsy.org). Previously, he was the VP, Values, and Impact at etsy.com. In that role he oversaw the stewardship of the company’s mission, and worked to give all employees the means and the desire to maximize the benefit their work has on people and the planet. In 2013, he was named a GOOD Magazine ‘Figure of Progress’. The next year he was named as one of the Purpose Economy 100. In 2016, Matt was selected as a BALLE Local Economy Fellow. Matt also serves on the Board of Directors for the Schumacher Center for New Economics, the Center for a New American Dream, and Naropa University. He is a graduate of Oberlin College and lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife, Benedikta, and their sons, Francis and Lewie.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
