Somehow I simply cannot walk and text at the same time. And that turns out to be a good thing. I begin this episode with some fascinating research about texting and walking – and how the people around you hate you when you do it. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/people-who-text-while-walking-are-annoying-as-hell-study-confirms_us_55b8f3e7e4b0a13f9d1b0b13?ir=Healthy%2BLiving%C2%A7ion%3Dhealthy-living&utm_hp_ref=healthy-living

Criticism can be tricky. It is often hard to give it effectively and it is even harder to hear it when it is aimed at you. That may be because we are not doing it correctly, according to Deb Bright, author of the book The Truth Doesn't Have to Hurt : How to Use Criticism to Strengthen Relationships, Improve Performance, and Promote Changehttps://amzn.to/2ATMnyh . Listen as Deb reframes the topic and shows how criticism can be a very valuable tool in shaping behavior and getting things done. And it doesn’t necessarily have to sting.

What if you could use computer algorithms to solve everyday problems in your human life, such as where to eat dinner or how to choose a home? Well, you can! In fact you should, according to Brian Christian, author of the book Algorithms to Live By. https://amzn.to/2OQGO6m Brian explains how many of our personal problems can actually be better solved by using algorithms if you understand what they are and how to use them.

I was very intrigued by this podcast about giving and getting criticism. I work in an environment where I have to give and get criticism all the time and to find new ways to give it was very helpful. I especially enjoyed hearing that you have to know the type of people who is receiving the criticism because always starting the critique with the positive may not always work with people which is how I was taught in a few workplace classes. thank you for this podcast and I have subscribed!
