AJ Jacobs: The Importance of Self-Delusion in the Creative Process

AJ Jacobs: The Importance of Self-Delusion in the Creative Process | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Could self-delusion be the best invention ever? If it makes you take action on your idea, the answer just might be yes.


How can we apply the idea of method acting to our business lives? This is the question that lifehacker and bestselling author AJ Jacobs tackles in this insightful (and highly entertaining) talk on the benefits of faking it until you make it. Through a series of examples from his own life, Jacobs shows just how much our behavior shapes our thoughts and our perceptions. Thus, if we want to change our attitude about something, the best way is to “act as if.”

Master Your Mindset to Increase Self Confidence

Master Your Mindset to Increase Self Confidence | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Your mindset matters enormously because it effects your decisions and where you place your focus, in other words, it has the ability to help or hinder you.

A fixed mindset can leave you feeling disempowered and a victim of whatever obstacles life happens to throw your way.A growth mindset strengthens your self confidence because, while fully aware of the challenges, you believe in the power of possibilities.

Change the Way You Look at Things and the Things You Look at Change | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
We see no more than we expect to see....

People tend to think of perception as a passive process. We see, hear, smell, taste or feel stimuli that impinge upon our senses. We think that if we are at all objective, we record what is actually there. Yet perception is demonstrably an active rather than a passive process; it constructs rather than records "reality.” You construct how you choose to see the world.

People Won’t Grow If You Think They Can’t Change

People Won’t Grow If You Think They Can’t Change | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Have you ever worked hard to improve a valuable skill and made real progress, only to have your development go unnoticed by the people who told you that you needed to improve? Perhaps this led you to look for a new job. Or maybe you’re a manager who’s been disappointed by poor performance and concluded that your low-performing employees are simply over-entitled? So you gave up on trying to help them improve and vented your frustration with colleagues behind closed doors.

Both of these commonplace experiences point to problems caused by a fixed mindset, in which we find it hard to believe that people can change. In the first scenario, an employee is judged as having low potential—and this assessment blinds leaders to the progress he’s made. In the second, the manager’s conviction that her employees will never change makes her less likely to engage in leadership behaviors that support development. The bottom line in both cases is that employees are less likely to reach their potential.

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, April 24, 2016 5:32 PM
Don't be blocked by your past experiences or other peoples' opinions or prejudices. You have the team and its your role to enable them. Give the person a target and the means, and organize the support to get there. With a real chance to make a difference, contribute to the common project goals and improve their skills they may very well succeed and surprise you.

Demonstrating the Simplicity of Storytelling

Demonstrating the Simplicity of Storytelling | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

"Once again this shows the power of the mind to create a story to make sense of its surroundings. Your brain is happier to believe there are connections between the things that it sees. This is a vital insight for your brand experience. If you do not control the story, your audience will find their own and maybe it’s not the story you want to tell."


Via Gregg Morris, David McQueen
Ariana Amorim's insight:

This article tells us about the Kuleshov Effect and its implications on brand experience. I think there's more to it and that's why I rescoop it here.

 

The Kuleshov Effect is a film editing (montage) effect demonstrated by Russian filmmaker Lev Kuleshov in the 1910s and 1920s. 

 

In the dawn of the 20th century, cinema was a new art form, comprising many techniques that hadn’t been developed. The elements of editing were among the ones that had not been studied to the needed extension. Lev Kuleshov was among the first to indicate the power of film editing and to dissect the effects of juxtaposition.

 

Kuleshov put a film together, showing the expression of an actor, edited together with a plate of soup, a girl in a coffin and a woman on a recliner. Audiences praised the subtle acting, showing an almost imperceptible expression of hunger, grief, or lust in turn. The reality, of course, is that the same clip of the actor's face was re-used, and the effect is created entirely by its juxtaposition with other images.

 

Through his experiments and research, Kuleshov discovered that depending on how shots are assembled the audience will attach a specific meaning or emotion to it.The implication is that viewers brought their own emotional reactions to this sequence of images, and then moreover attributed those reactions to the actor, investing his impassive face with their own feelings.

 

So, can we recognize emotion without context? How do we reframe the stories we tell others and ourselves?

 

The stories that we tell ourselves are powerful. And yet, if you think about it, they are, in fact, just stories. 

 

Once we realize that, it then becomes possible to conclude that we could,  tell ourselves other stories –  stories that make space for our own growth, stories that build us up instead of break us down.

The Kuleshov effect. I didn't know this term, but of course it is true: Context plays a defining role in how we interpret narrative. 


This would be a useful video for my Creative Writing students.

The Heart of Innovation: What You Can Learn from the FedEx Logo in Less Than 10 Seconds

The Heart of Innovation: What You Can Learn from the FedEx Logo in Less Than 10 Seconds | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

During the past two years, I've asked more than a thousand people what they see when they look at the FedEx logo. 80% say "letters" or "colors" or "shapes" or "the word "FedEx." The other 20% tell me they see an arrow -- a white arrow.

This explains a lot of things.

Cognitive psychologists boil it down to just three words: "Motivation affects perception."

In other words, we see what we're primed to see and miss the rest.


Ariana Amorim's insight:

"That's the challenge before us all these days -- to go beyond our blind spots, limiting assumptions, and habits of thought in order to see bold new possibilities."

Se mettre à la place de l’autre, d’accord, mais comment ?

Se mettre à la place de l’autre, d’accord, mais comment ? | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Nous vivons les expériences de notre vie à partir de notre point de vue, de notre « carte du monde » qui n’est finalement qu’une perception de la situation.

 

Souvent nous recevons les conseils « Mets toi a sa place », « Considère son point de vue » …

 

D’ accord, c’est un bon conseil… Mais comment ? Comment passer au-delà de mes propres filtres, ma « carte du monde » ? Et comment voir les situations aux travers des yeux de mon interlocuteur afin de mieux comprendre ses pensées et ses actes ?

 

Bref, Comment je change les angles de prise de vue avec ma caméra mentale ?
