Curb Your Ethnocentrism
Welcome to Conscious Culture, a weekly newsletter full of interesting reads for curious, intelligent people who want to sharpen their minds
This one's coming in late but it's still awesome.
This week I'm sharing ideas on curbing your ethnocentrism, time management, the science behind building general skills, and Gen Z hospital.

“Ethnocentrism is an individual’s obstinate belief that one’s own culture is superior to the rest. It is the inclination to look at the world primarily from the perspective of one’s own culture. The negative mindset of establishing cultural superiority needs to be erased and undoubtedly this destructive approach contributes to needless clash at workplace.”
“Time management tips that actually work for efficiently allocating your hours in a day towards your priorities in work and life.”
“How do you build general skills? Abilities that not only help you with a narrow problem, but ones that you can apply repeatedly to problems in your life? Many of our goals, whether its becoming a better programmer, a savvier business leader or more original artist are of this type.”
“This piqued interest in the Creator Economy coincides with a notable shift in GenZ’s career aspirations. As many as 29% of American students no longer want to become bankers, doctors, or lawyers. Instead, they aspire to become creators. At current rates, this trend could see a generational shift in the global workforce.”
