The Book of Life

The Book of Life is an ever evolving book that aims to be the curation of the best and most helpful ideas in the area of emotional life. Think of it as the brain of the school of life and one of our new favorite books.

It’s called The Book of Life because it’s about the most substantial things in your life: your relationships, your income, your career, your anxieties.

There’s always been a longing to gather the important things in one place. Some of the appeal of a Bible or the collected works of a big name author is the sense that amidst all the chaos and disparate sources of knowledge, someone has taken the trouble to distill, to compress, to say what is essential. In a world overflowing with information, what we most need is curation. The Book of Life aims to be the curation of the best and most helpful ideas in the area of emotional life.

Ultimately, life is only 500,000 hours long so we have to make sure the ideas we need don’t get lost – or take too long to find.

The Book of Life redraws the sense of what a book is. Up to now, books have been the most ambitious way in which ideas are presented. But they have suffered from serious limitations: they’ve had only one author; they’ve usually been written over a relatively short period of time. And once they’ve been finished, they can’t be changed (even if the author gets a great new idea). They have also been largely restricted to words, images being too expensive and film impossible.

The Book of Life is being written by many people over a long time; it keeps changing and evolving. It is filled with images and films as well as texts. By floating online, it can grow a bit every day or so, as new things come along and it can be equally accessible all around the world, at any time, for free.

Christmas Starts with a Baby’s Giggle

The 2014 Christmas supermarket and retail ads make claim to the ‘magic’ of Christmas. But it’s not celebrities singing about turkeys, nostalgic chocolate bars or happy penguins that lie at the heart of the season. We thought it was time to produce a Christmas advert that shows where the feel good factor really comes from. – See more here.

12 more days until (sweet baby Jesus) CHRISTmas!

Tikker, The Happiness Watch

Tikker, is the death watch that counts down your life.

Although it sounds a bit morbid, it actually serves the exact opposite purpose by making you more aware of the time you have on this earth and therefore allowing you to value each second, minute, hour, and year of your life that much more.

Here’s what the makers say:

IMAGINE SOMEONE TOLD YOU that you only had 1 year left to live. How would that change your life?

For all of us life comes with a best before date, and one day we’ll find ourselves at the end of the line. Gee, you’re thinking, this is really depressing!

BUT, WAIT, there’s good news too!

While death is nonnegotiable, life isn’t. The good news is that life is what you make of it – and it can be beautiful!

All we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given, to honor it, suck the marrow from it, seize the day and follow our hearts. And the best way to do this is to realize that seconds, days and years are passing never to come again. And to make the right choices.

Anger or forgiveness? Tic-toc. Wearing a frown or a smile? Tic-toc. Happy or upset? Tic-toc. 

THAT’S WHY WE’VE CREATED Tikker, the death watch that counts down your life, just so you can make every second count.

Tikker is a wrist watch that counts down your life from years to seconds, and motivates you to make the right choices. Tikker will be there to remind you to make most of your life, and most importantly, to be happy.

REMEMBER, IT’S NOT REALLY about how much time you HAVE, it’s what you DO with it. A week spent in love and happiness can be worth more than years spent in agony. Wearing a Tikker is a statement to the world that your biggest priority in life, is living.

So please help us help you do that, and have the time of your life with Tikker, the death watch that makes every second count.

And as if that’s not all, Tikker also shows you the time!

“My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”– Steve Jobs

To he/she who got me for secret santa this year, you know what to get me ; ) I know we set a $20 limit but who’s counting?!
