Sharing knowledge is one of our principal values.

Focus is the new gold

How insourcing strengthens resilience and empowers your brain

How many times have you been distracted today from what you actually wanted to do? We live in a world of constant connectivity, where distraction lurks around every corner. Our endless to-do lists and packed schedules are a merciless reflection of what’s going on in our minds: we are constantly in overdrive, and our focus is completely lost. No wonder stress and burnout rates are at an all-time high. Despite the fact that we now know more than ever what we need to remain resilient and healthy, our overstimulated brain seems unable to handle all that knowledge, let alone put it into practice. Ten years after her bestseller Better Minds, Elke Geraerts presents a book tailored to a generation without attention. She combines powerful insights with practical tools that can be implemented immediately. Her goal? Sharpening our focus again. Not only by making us work more efficiently and attentively but also – and especially – by teaching us to deliberately unfocus. Are you ready for a mental revolution?

Better Minds

How insourcing strengthens resilience and empowers your brain

The burnout epidemic is taking on unseen proportions. Our hectic lives and ongoing digitization deeply challenge our brain, which is showing serious signs of neglect.

How to thrive in a world of too much

It’s difficult to ask anybody ‘How are you?’ without hearing the word ‘busy’ somewhere in their response. We feel overwhelmed by busyness because of the demands on our time: our inbox and our to-do list are bulging, a huge amount of people expect things from us and our organisations are trying to do more with fewer people. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In reality, busyness isn’t essential. Yes, there is a lot to do, but believing you’re always busy because you have so much to do is both false and unhelpful. Busyness is a normal response to a world of too much, but it isn’t the only response. In Busy Tony Crabbe draws on solid psychological research to address one of the great problems of modern life: we’re too busy. But it isn’t a time-management book. Rather than providing advice for increasing productivity and efficiency, it sets out four key strategies (corresponding to sections of the book) for thriving despite of the overload of too much: 1. Mastery – to move beyond busyness you need to regain a sense of mastery over your life. This section shows you how to build a sense of control back into your life, take responsibility for making choices and how to set boundaries to protect you from the flood of demands and information. 2. Focus – in a world of too much, success is not about doing more at work but about making an impact. This section outlines three ways to move to a career strategy that doesn’t rely on productivity alone. 3. Engagement – busyness can cause you to disengage from the people, values and activities that are important to us. This section provides you with the three keys to re-engaging with your work and life. 4. Momentum – part of the challenge to moving beyond busyness is that even if you agree you should make the change, you’re too busy to find the time and energy to do anything about it. This section is dedicated to helping you make the change, creating the impetus, energy and clarity to move to a life less busy.
