  • I bet you’re sitting while reading this – and you shouldn’t be

    The development of our civilization led us to adopting a sedentary lifestyle, which puts a huge strain on our movement system and, in a sense, actively shortens our lives. Many have sounded the alarm, for "sitting is the new smoking," and rightfully so. Objectively speaking, there is a certain truth to that statement.

  • Deep vs shallow work #G2A Work Hacks

    While to-do lists might be helpful sometimes, they are also a trap. Imagine you have 5 tasks to complete today. There are three possible outcomes here.

  • Priorities – how to get them straight_#G2A Work Hack

    The first part of our WorkHacks 101 mentioned a nifty little idea called the Pareto principle (AKA the 80/20 rule). What is it? It’s essentially an observation – not a law, mind you – that 20% of the input creates 80% of the results. Originally, it was the rule’s namesake, Vilfredo Pareto, who noticed that roughly 80% of Italy’s land is controlled by 20% of the country’s population.
