Splendid Sundays Volume 166Sunday, January 25, 2015
A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
The World Economic Forum at Davos includes daily meditation sessions. "It was perhaps an unusual theme for the power brokers at the event. But many on the panel and in the audience professed that meditation gave them a competitive advantage." [The New York Times]
Age 40: Ain't Nobody Got Time For That. "I let other people be responsible for how they choose to respond to things. I don’t feel guilty for saying no. I don't need to wait for someone to call on me . . . I'm careful what stories I tell myself about the things that are happening." [The Li.st]
The Economist names its first woman editor-in-chief. "Zanny Minton Beddoes, 47, is the first woman to serve in the role of the 172 year-old publication." [Reuters]
Jawbone: The Trials of a 16-year-old can't-miss start-up. "It’s true that by collecting information from a willing customer’s body, Jawbone would have tremendously valuable data . . . . Says Rahman: 'the Nest doesn’t know if you’re hot or cold. I will.'"
Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:
The 2015 Global Wedding Study General Report, the 2015 Luxury Wedding Market Report (budgets of $96,000 or higher), and the 2015 Premium Wedding Market Report (budgets of $31,000-95,000) from Splendid Insights are now available for download.
