How do you know when to meet a person face-to-face and when a voice- or video-chat is enough?
I’ve just talked about this with one of my new connections who invited me to an in-person meeting to get acquainted.
He said that he prefers establishing new connections face to face. I thought that it makes total sense.
Rest assured, social media overheard our convo and I saw a HBR article on this very topic right the next day.
So here’s your cheat sheet for when meet in person and when online chat is enough.
Many people criticize this new New York sightseeing site - the Little Island, a $260 million gift to the city from billionaire Barry Diller and his wife, fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg's.
I think it’s a great contribution!
Many established workers are ready to quit their jobs these days if they can't work remotely, and we will observe a significant workforce shift.
Do you want to return to the office after reopening?
If yes, you have worked for your employer for some time and likely fall into the 12% of all office workers who want to go back full time. The majority is looking for a remote or hybrid workplace.
However, another category of workers would like to work 9 to 5 five days a week -- college students and recent graduates.
They fear that they'll miss out on the valuable skills and opportunities that traditional office work provided.
74% of young people say that remote work won't give them an equal sense of community, and 41% say they'll lack in-person mentoring and feedback on performance.
Among other things that the youngsters hope to get when working at an office are HQ amenities (such as gym and cafes), distraction-free workplaces, "extra motivation to go home at the end of the day, and the ability to separate work life from home life."
Clearly, such workers have different values as they don't have spouses or children yet, and need to build their network from scratch, compared to older employees.
Employers get an opportunity to find fresh blood that young people bring, and they are also eager to work at an office. We'll see more older people becoming self-employed and entrepreneurs, while more youngsters will work at the offices.
Do you think that healthy lifestyle slows aging down? Doesn’t necessarily work for your brain.
It's well-documented that the human brain shrinks in volume with age. The changes happen at all levels, from molecules to morphology.
Researches have discovered a group of older people -- 60-80 years old -- whose brain activity barely differs from that of young adults. They call them 'Superchargers.'
The study suggests that their brains have somehow resisted the march of time. However, there's no consensus on what could be their secret yet.
Some research links it to particular personality traits, which determine the maintenance of their great minds. Superchargers stood out for their optimism, resilience, and perseverance, as well as active and engaged lifestyles, love for traveling, reading, and positive social relationships.
Other studies suggest it's just a genetic lottery.
What studies agree on is that many Superchargers aren't necessarily leading healthy lifestyles.
What is clear to me is that knowing how to enjoy life (where everything can be good in moderation) might very well be the secret to longevity.
Note to self: share my own findings on hedonism.
Long time no see! Let’s rock & roll!

This week I learned about two new occupations in the market: Instagram concierge and spiritual concierge.
The former works at beautiful locations, helps people find the best spots for epic Instagram shots and provides necessary equipment if necessary.
The latter has skills and knowledge about various spiritual practices and can advise on what would be the best for one's personal needs, perform ceremonies or refer to other practitioners.
So I thought that I might as well be your knowledge or, better yet, growth concierge :) How would you like that? Let's coin this term!
Let me tell you a success story of one creator.
Kayla Itsines, a personal trainer, started with a PDF with a workout routine and one-on-one classes over video chat in her backyard.
She built a following of more than 13 million people on Instagram and created an app Sweat for her workouts.
In 2020, her business generated shy of $100 million and she sold her app for $400 million! Multiplier 4x!
Now, image you’d own a coin of hers ;)
New emojis are coming including a …melting face, a covering face face, a voyeur, a saluting face, a face holding back tears, and a low battery emoji, too.
Which is your fave so far?
PS There will be 15 new handshake combination emoji…
