How "Stealing" from Great Writers Makes You Write Better And Think Bigger

We all have that day where your idea pool run dry and you just cannot find the suitable word to describe things in your mind. You then remember all those great lines from Ernest Hemingway and wonder why you never been able to form those brilliant sentences in your brain, while slowly fall into the abyss of self-deprivation. Actually, it is not that hard to write like Hemingway. You just have to steal from him. When you are reading some fascinating pieces from great writers, you may imagine yourself becoming a writer. You can, in fact, get one step closer by “stealing” something from them. Of course you are not plagiarizing their work, but learning some important writing skills from the masters. Francine Prose shares how we can learn to write better by reading intentionally — outstanding writing is dressed up with language styles.

In both cases, you can be sure that if you don’t use it you’ll lose it. Evidence suggests that mental stimulation improves brain function [1] whilst also reducing the risk of cognitive decline and related diseases. So what kind of exercise does a brain need? Probably learning more word

If You Want To Be More Productive, You Need To Stop Work From Expanding

Have you ever decided to refresh your resume, only to see what should be a 30-minute job take weeks? Believe it or not, this has little to do with the nature of the challenge itself, but more your outlook and the amount of time that you allow for completion. In this post, we will talk about the importance of mind-set and how you can become more productive when completing non time-sensitive tasks. Parkinson’s Law: work expands when your give it too much time The key to improving your productivity and avoiding procrastination is to understand Parkinson’s Law, which is an old adage which declares that ‘work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion’. It is a psychological principle that has inspired numerous studies and pieces of literature, and one that underlines the potential dangers of setting arbitrary time-frames that have little or no bearing on the task in hand. In practical terms (and expanding our previous example), this means that you may allow yourself a
