A few years ago, the chairman of a large manufacturer found out that his organisation was spending $1.25 billion on IT on a yearly basis. This amount was high enough for him to hire an outside VP who was to investigate how this happened, and report to back to him, directly.

After several weeks of investigation, back came the answer on how it happened:

Being humble is a subjective measure, depending on the industry you're in. Some industries prefer that you are bold (about your stuff), while others require the reserved man or woman. We all know about the arrogant entrepreneurs like Donald and Leona, who both clearly recognized peak successes. Meanwhile, only in the past decade have we all (more or less) gained access to resources and information/shared in books, videos, etc, teaching us people skills and practices. Learning them is one thing. Adopting them and using them unconsciously is another. Thank you for the affirmation today, how humble "wins."

Some business owners are constantly travelling, other travel rarely if at all, but most will have to travel on business from time to time.


Those who constantly travel generally do so on autopilot, but infrequent travellers find that they often overlook important elements that go towards making business trips successful, and as a consequence place themselves in stressful situations that impact on their performance.


This good article, suggests that business trips should not be high stress events, and it offers 10 tips to follow to make your next business trip a highly successful exercise.

Your health plan – now with video games | 2020 IT Leader – Latest News | Scoop.it

Consumers and health experts alike have long tried to make healthy choices seem more palatable by adding a dose of fun. (Think parents sneaking vegetables into their kids’ macaroni and cheese.) Now, companies are getting in on the action, using games to nudge employees in a more healthful direction.

 

Experts say such game-like health programs can be used to encourage consumers to engage in a wide range of healthy activities—everything from working out to getting flu shots.

Invest in time doing nothing!

John Michel's curator insight, June 19, 2013 2:19 AM

The most important reason to schedule buffers is to just catch your breath. There is no faster way to feel as though your day is not your own, and that you are no longer in control, than scheduling meetings back to back from the minute you arrive at the office until the moment you leave. I’ve felt the effects of this and seen it with colleagues. Not only is it not fun to feel this way, it’s not sustainable.

This App Will Make You Feel Better, Using No Medicine At All

This App Will Make You Feel Better, Using No Medicine At All | 2020 IT Leader – Latest News | Scoop.it

 

Daniel Jacobs also wants to use placebos for good. His new app, which he’s crowd-funding on Indiegogo, is an attempt to take the placebo out of the doctor’s office and into your home. He hopes it will make people feel better, and contribute further to placebo research.

 

You start by setting a goal: say, more joy or love in your life. Then, you choose someone to give you the placebo (maybe a friend or family member), what you want it to be (a pill, say), and where you want to take it (maybe a forest where you go running with a friend). You then "take" the placebo whenever you want to, following a pre-set ritual built into the app.

 

The point is to replicate what’s important about the placebo effect, which isn’t the pill itself, but the experience. "If we think about placebo as a transformational symbol, then people get to choose what placebo they want," says Jacobs. "It can be a pill, magic wand, holy book, communion wafer, or herbs. It just needs to be meaningful for them."

I completely believe in a "mind over matter" approach.  After all your body is capable of producing every drug you could ever find in a drug store.  What's even better, your body can administer the exact dose for the exact time required.  I kid you not!  The trick is to truely believe without a shadow of any doubt.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 26, 2013 2:01 AM

this app sounds very cool, however it makes me worry how much more we really want to depend on technology. When I first started reading the article i thought it looked amazing, but then I realised that I am on my phine so ofte anyway; always checkingfacebook and keeping in touch with friends, even when i have friends sitting right next to me. My phone destracts me from the here and the now, even though connection is great sometimes it blocks out life that is passing by so fast. Now there is something more we should depend on our Phones for, things that we should get from actual human interaction- Justine Pearce
