#Brexit ALREADY costs UK £1bn pw as we Hit Holidays! @GoldmanSachs put that lower at £600m. but I'm looking at 2+% less GDP (than would have been); more Govt Debt (+interest); the growing impact of #Brexodus on jobs/taxtake; £devaln.&inflation creep, reducing Property values.1/20
@GoldmanSachs Am puzzled & mortified? that UK's so-called Major Political Parties @Conservatives @UKLabour seem umbilically disconnected? from the financial IMPACT of their recent (let's say) 'accidental collusions' and Brexit-Birth-Giving! Why the co-incidental & costly numeracy lapse? 2/20
@GoldmanSachs @Conservatives @UKLabour Assuming that (eg) @bankofengland @hmtreasury @ICAEW @The_IoD @cbicarolyn @FrancesOGrady are aware of UK's #Brexit financial haemorrhage? eg Govt Debt, Jobs/Tax, Businesses (all sizes), Individuals - there may be varying estimates? but agreement that a HUGE hit is ongoing! 3/20

The hot-take genre I am most fascinated by is Middle- and Upper-Class White Men Who Have The Key To #Productivity. I am on many of their mailing lists. I follow many of them on Twitter. I find their ideas for morning and evening routines precious and adorable. (#thread)
Somehow, they have constructed lives (at least as they tell it) that appear to be free of the chaos injected by a child or children that wake up at non-regular times, demanding an immediate hug, Lego consultation, or story. Their mornings seem consistent, calm, manageable.
Eat the frog first! they say. Journal for 10 minutes! Drink a tall glass of lukewarm lemon water! Step outside for that critical burst of nature that makes all the difference! Exercise for 30 minutes while listening to an audiobook!

I mean.

Some thoughts on children in the office... 1 - we are a start up, so we can sort of do what we like 2 - we are designing the policy as we go, every child in the office is an opportunity to learn what works and what doesn’t 3 - this is not a female issue, it’s a parent/carer one.
4 - it definitely doesn’t scale in its current guise, but we don’t build for 500 people today, like our app, we work incrementally and improve out childcare policy as we go.
5 - This is a lovey dovey situation for sure but ultimately it’s a #Productivity one. The money we lose as parents have to work from home during summer holidays is nuts to me 🤷🏾‍♀️ if anyone knows lost GDP due to lack of childcare I’d be fascinated to know 💰💰💰

1/ "If doctors and nurses #clocked out when their paid #hours were finished, the effect on patients would be calamitous. Doctors and nurses know this, which is why they don’t shirk.

The system knows it, too, and takes advantage." @danielleofri nyti.ms/31ma6Qz
2/ "Increasingly, though, I’ve come to the uncomfortable realization that this #ethic that I hold so dear is being cynically #manipulated.

With mergers and streamlining, it has pushed the #productivity numbers about as far as they can go."
3/ "By now, corporate medicine has milked just about all the 'efficiency' it can out of the system."

I often think about this from an educator perspective too. My residents often say 'I just don't know how I can be any more #efficient" #MedEd

2/ Every night, right before you sleep, write down the top 3 things you need to do tomorrow AND anything that is bothering you.

Getting it out of your head will help you sleep better and get a faster start in the morning.
3/ Before taking a break from any complex work, always write down where you are and what you were doing.

It will save you a lot of time when you pick it up again, even if it's just an hour later.

1. Inside First

While it's okay to make SHORT-TERM sacrifices in health to get ahead when you're young,

Make your health your priority.

It affects LITERALLY EVERY other aspect of your life.

In everything that you do, YOU are the common denominator.

So treat yourself well
1a. Sleep

You hear about it so often because it REALLY is that important.

Enough sleep reduces/prevents virtually every illness, more energy, less weight, stable mood, etc.

Not enough is the opposite.

Next will be some ways to improve sleep:

#EducationIsImportant #NationBuilding
#Education
A University professor once wrote an expressive and Avery apt message to his students at the doctorate, masters and bachelors levels and placed it at the entrance in the university he taught in..
The #Message reads as below..

“Collapsing any nation does not require use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations by the students".
The #patient dies in the hands of such #doctors

And the buildings #collapse in the hands of such #engineers

And the money is #lost in the hands of such #accountants

And #humanity dies in the hands of such religious #productivity scholars ...

At our latest @MSU_IBIO postdoc meeting @HelenMcCreery presented her recent paper with @AmandaHund , @LizScordato et al. on the importance of #mentorship in #STEM & how to remediate to the lack of guidance on how to be a good mentor. Thread! 👇 (1/n)

onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ec…
I loved every bit of that paper! This is something that should really be spread to all institutions and read by grad students, postdocs and PIs alike! Read it, spread it, get discussions started at your department! #AcademicTwitter (2/n)

(1/n) This thread is a #summary of the #book "Write it down and make it happen" by Henriette Anne Klauser

#habits #productivity #motivation #neuroplasticity
(2/n) A lot of people only have vague ideas about what they really want. They desire more money, a better job, someone to love or the chance to travel somewhere exotic.
You may have similar desires of your own. But if you want to make them a reality, you need to be precise.
3/n So rather than saying “I want money,” say, “I want exactly enough money to open a restaurant.” And when it comes to love, figure out exactly what you’re looking for. Maybe it’s someone who is funny, kind and doesn’t mind that you don’t want to have kids.
