watchLAB’s Weekly Reading List is back and ready for action! Check what we’ve been reading this week: everything from the Super bowl to Mr. Rogers, with a few other gems sprinkled in between.

Here’s what I’ve been reading:

1) A Different Kind of Super Bowl Shuffle

Found on Inc., by Justin Bariso

Although nothing will ever top 1985’s shinning moment in football history, this year’s big game has come and gone, but see what the founder of Insight has to say about the big takeaways, and he’s not talking about those dancing sharks.

 

2) How Social is our Social Media?

Found on Business Insider, by Amanda Baker

Check out this article by Amanda Baker and see the real, physical effects our social media has on our social nature and our minds.

 

3) So Less Really Can Be More

Found on Harvard Business Review, by Stew Friedman

Can we really get more work done by focusing less on work? It sounds counter productive, but see what Friedman’s research has to say on balancing all aspects of your life, to be more efficient and productive.

 

4) But Maybe Flexibility has its Costs

Found on The Atlantic, by Rebecca J. Rosen

So now that Friedman got you focusing less on work, maybe working from home sounds like a great idea for balancing out your life. See what Rosen has to say about fighting the stigma of “out of sight, out of mind.”

 

5) “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood . . .”

Found on Inc., by Travis Bradberry

If your Mr. Roger’s that is. Find out how this TV legend for kids still has quite a bit to teach to adults, even in the business world.
