Amy Melendez's curator insight, March 16, 2013 1:44 PM

From the article: " A bad day is just a bad day.  Choose not to make it anything more. 

 

Times of adversity will inevitably affect the conditions in which you live and work; yet you don’t have to let it affect who you are and where you’re headed. 

Take note of the setbacks and adjust to them, but don’t expand on them by making them a bigger part of your life.

 

Every day brings new lessons and new possibilities.  There is always a way to take the next step forward on the path you’ve chosen.  Events may be terrible and inescapable at times, but you always have choice – if not when, then how, you may endure and proceed onward.

John Michel's curator insight, March 16, 2013 9:15 PM

It’s all too easy to get bogged down in over-planning, procrastination, and self-doubt. These things are time and energy suckers. You can literally waste days, weeks, and months on these types of unproductive behaviors – and not realize it until it’s too late.

While the average spend time and effort on unproductive tasks, elite achievers spend their time on tasks that move them toward their goals.

There’s good news, though. Elite achievers don’t have a secret weapon or some sort of productivity pill. They’ve just developed certain character traits that make it easier to crush their goals.

That means you could be just one or two small adjustments away from joining the ranks of the elite achievers.

4 Steps to Removing Leadership Bias

4 Steps to Removing Leadership Bias | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

We are often hard-pressed to understand, let alone know, what to do with what starts out as a “feeling” about someone.

 

 

This is not the “I have feelings” sort of thing, but rather an internal experience we are aware of before we know what it is. We then try to determine its meaning, decide what to do with it, and that often means we “spin” something up.  

 

 

This means we can be wrong and being wrong can adversely affect leadership effectiveness.
