I'm baaaaaack. Had a fantastic trip to Brazil, but back on Irish soil now and into the swing of things once again.
It's fair to say I'm addicted to my phone. It's likely you are too. Across the globe, mobile devices dominate total minutes spent online and it's more than likely you're using one to read this right now. It's not just you (or me) though, as Google’s former design ethicist Tristan Harris believes that smartphones are designed to be addictive. He recently chatted with Vox to explain how and suggested some tips in order to break the habit.

Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Eric Barker: I received this as a Christmas present from my brother and have only gotten the chance to start it this week. So far I'm really enjoying it! Barker believes that much of the advice we’ve been told about achievement is logical, earnest and downright wrong. Within the book, he reveals the science behind what actually determines success and how anyone can achieve it. You can find it on Book Depository by clicking here (affiliate link YOLO). Will let you know my final thoughts once it's finished!
During the week I shared my interview with 16-year-old entrepreneur, author and fashion designer Abdullah Ahmad where I got to ask him all about his journey so far, what drives him and his plans for the future. His story is truly inspiring and definitely worth sharing. Have a read here.
Can't remember if I shared this before or not, but was reminded of it again recently. Great live mashup and hugely talented musician: Elise Trouw. Enjoy!
