After a stressful event, this neuroscientist “started wondering, are there things that I can do, systems that I can put into place, that will prevent bad things from happening? Or at least if bad things happen, will minimize the likelihood of it being a total catastrophe?”

Puddicombe, a mindfulness expert, former Buddhist monk, and cofounder of mediation app Headspace, describes the transformative power of doing nothing for 10 minutes, undisturbed, each day.

Apple cofounder and former CEO Steve Jobs has a tremendous legacy.
He’s remembered for his obsessive commitment to quality (sometimes to the point of ruthlessness), incredible success, and vision.
Today would have been his 61st birthday.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some of his most thought-provoking or motivational words.
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
“It’s really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”
