Funzing Talks: Slow Down & Be Late
Try to list out 2 news feeds you read yesterday and describe them in as much detail as you can.
Can you do it?
On a scale out of 10, 10 is very well, what score would you give yourself?
Normal people don’t really do it well based on my experience.
We remember we see something, but often we cant recall what we see.
This is a “new perspective” because everyone has been talking about, but there is no action to be done in response just yet.
A youth student once came to me asking me how was the world like before the emergence of smartphones. A good friend of mine working as a banker back then has come to me complaining the pressure behind constantly checking his Blackberry and stand-by for work.
There is JUST TOO MUCH information going all around, which sparkles incentive as well. Particularly in the context of messaging / marketing promotion we feel like we have constantly check and reply our phones.
Whether it is right or wrong to engage in this behaviour pattern in the era of acceleration may not be relevant to the discussion, but the echoes for slow down and be late is growing - for example, gym and yoga, which are designed to help one focus in exercising and mind-cleansing. Ironically, though, you’d often see people watching movies on tablets or replying messages on phones when exercising.
And even our little “secret” time - going to toilet, we also bring our phone with us, not letting ourselves enjoying the toilet break.
We need time to rest, think, and reflect on the journey. Just think of having a family dinner, putting aside anything, including your phone, your books, your computer. Being late is good, you improve relationship with your family loved-ones, your lifelong supporters.
It is good to be late - sometimes, lateness brings you coincidence and luck.7pm-9pm £12
LDN Talks: Embracing Risk
“Risk is Life”
Why are risk and uncertainty misunderstood? Why do many believe that these are things to be avoided? How can we embrace risk and uncertainty to improve our lives?
In this fascinating talk, Ben Cattaneo will use his professional expertise in risk management, as well as top insights from many of the guests of his podcast All Things Risk (www.allthingsrisk.co.uk) to discuss how people can make better decisions and approach risk and uncertainty more effectively.
Ben will cover:
What risk is and why it is misunderstood;
Cognitive biases and how to overcome them;
The power of “negative visualisation”;
Regret and disappointment – what’s the difference
The talk will be light hearted, and offer a very counterintuitive look at life.
