“The Art of Thinking Clearly” (Rolf Dobelli’s bestselling book) – Today’s Highlight

I do agree that we could do without the information overload we have to deal with every day. Our brain is being kept on the receiving end round the clock, when in fact thought processing needs time.

Se così fosse, non dovrebbe esserci alcun rischio per le altre maratone organizzate in giro per il mondo.  –  continua a leggere e guarda il video
