From the Web

I’ve written several articles for over the past week:

10 Tips for Razor Sharp Concentration – This one did very well, garnering a fair chunk of traffic from Digg.

Why Your Free Time is Boring

Insomniac’s Guide of Things to Do When Failing to Sleep

Study Hacks – Cal Newport, a friend and author of How to Become a Straight-A Student now has his articles in a blog format. Worth a look if you were a fan of Holistic Learning and other approaches to better learning.

From the Archives

    Hi Scott,

    You could also try “Finding Flow” by Mihály Csíkszentmihályi.

    Also “Learned Optimism” and “Authentic Happiness” by Martin Seligman might be of interest.



Debate is fine, flaming is not. Pretend that this comment form is a discussion taking place in my house. That means I enjoy constructive criticism and polite suggestions. Personal attacks, insults and all-purpose nastiness will be removed especially if it is directed at other readers.
