Let your brain breath!

How do you foster, grow and facilitate innovation? It’s a question that plaques many but few have found the answer. We appear at work at 8 and leave before 17, so that we don’t exceed the golden constant pace of 80% of our performance. But how can one feel free to innovate within such a

That means I have spent majority of my time taking care of the dog and cleaning after her. Well, I will continue someday and will keep you
