Our lives have become increasingly dependent on technology, especially in professional contexts. It all began with facilitating communication and now, thanks to computer programs we are able to perform complex calculations, automate processes or crunch vast amounts of data.

And as our world is becoming increasingly algorithmic, will there be a point when we humans will become entirely superfluous? Are we at a disadvantage in relation to machines?




Someone once said that there’s no such thing as useless information. However, in an age of information overload it may be quite useful to know what kind of things we will memorize readily and what kind of stuff will require us to employ more mental horsepower.

Is it the right, carefully crafted structure that accounts for a message’s memorability? Or is it its natural, free-flowing conversational quality?




In our performance obsessed reality we often forget that to err is human and that we learn best from our own mistakes. This growing tendency to avoid failure at all cost, in fact costs us a lot. We lose the ability to innovate, experiment, and make our dreams come true.

To liberate ourselves from the fetters of this paralysing fear of failure, we need to look upon our lives from a different perspective. Our lives are not about performing. They are about experiencing.
