From Time to Time

From Time to Time

By Julien from Stolp

Over the past few years, I have grown extremely curious about one of the tiniest but most radical innovations: the smartphone.

For better or worse, it has changed all of our lives. Phones make life better, but from time to time, it's important to switch off, slow down and reflect.

In this podcast I invite people from all branches of life for a conversation in which we explore the complex relationship between humans and screens.

Welcome to the 'From Time to Time' podcast by Julien Yee, founder of Stolp. Discover more Stories on smartphone culture on www.stolp.com/stories.

Nir Eyal on becoming in-distractable, why technology isn’t the problem, and how to win back time.
On this episode we had the chance to interview best-selling author Nir Eyal.  Besides being the author of two best-sellers, Nir taught at Stanford and continues to write and consult about the intersection of psychology and technology. Sounds about the right guy for an interview by Team Stolp, right?  In this 30' conversation, Nir shares his tactics to become in-distractible, spend more time on things we love, why tech isn't the only reason we can't seem to focus sometimes, and much more. Enjoy!

"If we had our phone visible, it would trigger our brain to think of the world outside of this conversion. And is that a bad thing, you could ask? I just think it leads to lower quality conversations, lower quality connections, and -yes- lower quality decisions." On this episode, I invite a personal friend of mine whose clear thinking and seemingly boundless enthusiasm, I've always looked up to. Korneel his curriculum reads like an exciting short novel, and he does get personal about some of his defining experiences. He shares in detail what he discovered happens when you take high-performing 'firefighters' offline for a week during the business retreats he organizes with his brother. We cover a variety of other interesting topics, like for example why he believes we should all get a 'gym membership' for our brains. Enjoy!

"You have to give children credit for being able to understand the dangers of smartphones as well. They do understand that, sometimes, they are getting dragged into it." Everytime I talk to Deepak Mehta I get more optimistic about the future. You can call him a lot of things: tech enthusiast & maker, ecosystem builder and one of the main inspirators behind TEDxAntwerp. On this episode Deepak talks about creativity during crises, and how digital is changing 'education' for the better. Together, we also dig a bit deeper into the debate around smartphone & kids. Deepak believes giving credit & 'agency' to our kids might be actually a way for them to better navigate the online dangers & challenges themselves.

"I often compare it to deep sea diving. Every time you take out your phone during the retreats, you reconnect with that busy life, you go back to the surface. You never really allow yourself to get to the bottom, where the real treasures are." In this first episode of the 'From Time to Time' podcast, we're joined by one of Belgium's Top 40 under 40, Carlien Cavens. During our honest conversation, you'll learn about what insights she got during an 'early midlife crisis', what happens when people decide to let go of their phone and the state of 'always busy', and she shares some of the most remarkable changes that people have experienced after her retreats.
