THE BOOK

As the ti­tle of Think Small sug­gests, achiev­ing change and head­ing to­wards an ame­lio­rated ex­is­tence is to un­der­stand the im­pact of mak­ing mi­nor changes. Writ­ten by mem­bers of the Nudge Unit – a team that started off as a gov­ern­ment of­fice in Lon­don’s Down­ing Street be­fore achiev­ing global suc­cess (the orig­i­nal nudge the­ory is claimed to have aided Obama’s rise to high of­fice) – the book melds prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion and in­sights with sci­en­tif­i­cally re­searched, ev­i­dence-based the­o­ries. Think of it as a first small step. $29.99; HARDIE GRANT

THE TOUR

Leo and Oprah’s ad­vice guru, Tony Rob­bins, is also the world’s most re­spected life and busi­ness strate­gist (and ar­guably the tallest, at 6ft 7). He’s head­ing back here for a four-day sem­i­nar, Un­leash the Power Within. We’re keen to do just that. And fi­nally open that bar. SYD­NEY, SEPTEM­BER 14 –17, FROM $995; UNLEASHTHE POWERWITHIN.COM.AU

THE APP

Block out bel­low­ing col­leagues and find some daily calm. We’ve been fans of Noisli for a while now and are happy to cham­pion it as a nec­es­sary work­day com­pan­ion that ac­tu­ally as­sists in in­creased productivity. Sim­ply open, choose a sound (wa­ter, waves, fire, white, pink or brown noise and, well, the buzz of a cof­fee shop and be­yond) and watch as you tick off those tasks. Or, sim­ply ig­nore that loud buf­foon lit­ter­ing their con­ver­sa­tion with too many acronyms. $2.99; IOS AND AN­DROID
