Sir Ken Robinson on Originality

It’s no surprise that we’re all afraid of making mistakes. Will they set us back on our paths or will they haunt us forever? When we’re learning and experimenting with something new, we’re bound to fail. But that’s how we find our niche and voice.

British author and teacher Ken Robinson has a few wise words on originality. 👇🏼

Googler to Productivity Writer & Founder: Anne-Laure Le Cunff’s Journey Explained

Anne Laure Le Cunff’s journey has always been about prioritizing mental health and enabling that for others! She worked in Google’s Digital Health team and quit her job when she faced a burnout; later she joined a startup and had to relinquish it when the second burnout struck.

That’s when she realized she had to conjure a tangible solution.

She went back to school to study MSc in Neuroscience and floated Ness Labs, which was only a blog then. From writing about her learnings to helping individuals tap into their potential — Ness Labs grew into what it is today — a flourishing community. 💯

Later Anne diversified her content into ebooks, newsletters, and a YouTube channel. We’ve demystified her journey in a Twitter thread for you. 👇🏼
