The advent of Twitter has ignited a convenient and engaging medium of internet communication. With 288 million monthly active users and 500 million Tweets sent per day, Twitter has struck gold in devising an attractive communication outlet. Twitter’s 140-character per-tweet limit encourages brevity and minimizes fluff. However, it can also foster the oversimplification of complex subjects. Case in point:
“Receiving healthcare is the third leading cause of death in the US.” #txfm10
That is a strong statement. It is, in essence, a criminalization of the most altruistic profession. However, this tweet was very popular during Transform 2010, having been retweeted more than [...]

By Center for Innovation

How Your Habits Can Control Your Future

By Center for Innovation

 

Power-of-Habit-Blog-Post

The brain’s ability to make habits has made daily routines feel--for lack of a better word--routine. The first time you tie your shoes, make pancakes, or drive your commute, it takes effort and concentration to complete the task.
