Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

It's not about what you know... It's how you act!

Learn to Aim Higher

Learn to Aim Higher | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Everyone, at some point in their life, has dreamed of accomplishing something extraordinary. Who hasn’t dreamed of being wealthy and successful doing work they love to do? Who hasn’t pictured themselves in a happy and loving relationship?

 

We may dream big dreams and have great aspirations, but unfortunately our dreams often remain just that – dreams. As time passes those dreams and aspirations can fade away if we let them.

 

It’s a sad turn of events when we allow this to happens . Instead of our life being an exciting adventure as we pursue our dreams, we can find ourselves caught up in the humdrum of living from day-to-day with nothing extraordinary to look forward to. But you know what, it doesn’t need to be that way. Life can be so much better. Once we learn how to aim higher and then follow through, amazing things begin to happen.

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.

 

Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.

 

The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.

10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget

10 Simple Truths Smart People Forget | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Some of the smartest people I know continuously struggle to get ahead because they forget to address a few simple truths that collectively govern our potential to make progress. So here’s a quick reminder:

 

#1 – Education and intelligence accomplish nothing without action.
It doesn’t matter if you have a genius IQ and a PhD in Quantum Physics, you can’t change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. There’s a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. It’s as simple as that. For some practical guidance on taking action, I highly recommend The Now Habit.

 

#2 – Happiness and success are two different things.
I know an extremely savvy businesswoman who made almost a million dollars online last year. Every entrepreneur I know considers her to be wildly successful. But guess what? A few days ago, out of the blue, she told me that she’s depressed...
