It is amazing what 20 minutes can do to settle us, let us create, and refresh us...

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 2013 8:03 AM

(From the article): New research from the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging suggests that people who meditate show more gray matter in certain regions of the brain, show stronger connections between brain regions and show less age-related brain atrophy. In other words, meditation might make your brain bigger, faster, and "younger". As lead researcher Eileen Luders explains, "it appears to be a powerful mental exercise with the potential to change the physical structure of the brain."

5 Easy Steps Toward Minimalism for 2013

5 Easy Steps Toward Minimalism for 2013 | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"You’re probably reading this because, like me, you want things to be simpler.  Minimalism is about eliminating the unnecessary in order to focus on the most important.

 

I have several projects in mind that I plan to implement in 2013.  (One, in particular, is a HUGE one…but I can’t tell you about it yet.  It’s still a secret.)  Those bigger projects can be fun, but not every step needs to be a big step.  

 

In fact, the biggest challenge is to take initiative and just do SOMETHING. We have to make daily decisions to adjust our actions and mindsets. Clutter happens.  So it’s good to do little mini-projects on occasion to prime our passion for minimalism and to remind us of how “doable” it really is.

 

Here are 5 Easy Steps Toward Minimalism for 2013:1- “Drop 5 in 10″2- Prioritize relationships3- Get your inboxes to zero4- Simplify your closet5- Find what motivates you"

Because A PLN Is a Gift…

Because A PLN Is a Gift… | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 

Yes, I talk about Twitter all the time.  I rave about the people I’ve met. I am addicted to edcamps.  I stalk the blogs of people who inspire me.  I read, save, download, bookmark, and retweet what makes me a better educator.  What is it all about? The people who are a part of my PLN, or personal learning network.  I often say the “P” in PLN stands for “Positive.”  One tweet can change your entire perspective, push your thinking, solidify your thoughts, or make you question something you didn’t even realize you needed to question.  For that? I am incredibly grateful.  The PLN is a gift that keeps on giving. It encourages you to give back just as much. It inspires you to do more, be more, and to never stop learning. So, to every person in the world who has become part of mine, I just wish to say “Thank you!”

Courage: An Essential Leadership Trait

Courage: An Essential Leadership Trait | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

According to Aristotle, courage is the first virtue because it makes all other virtues possible. 

 

Here is a list of ten things you can do as a leader to show and develop courage:

1. Stand up for what is right even if your opinion is unpopular.
2. Keep quiet and let others speak even if you think they are wrong.
3. Delegate with confidence.
4. Say what you mean, and mean what you say.
5. Take responsibility for your actions.
6. Maintain your integrity even when temptation abounds.
7. Ask what you can give, rather than what you can get.
8. Give credit where credit is due.
9. Be kind when giving feedback.
10. Ask. Don’t tell.

Humane Connection: Humane Educator's Toolbox: The Power of Outrospection | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Enough navel gazing! It's time to look outward to know ourselves, and to help create a better world!, says philosopher and author Roman Krznaric. In this 10 minute video (animated by RSA Animate) Krznaric argues for a turn to "outrospection." He focuses on the power of empathy as a revolutionary tool for changing the world.

In outlining his argument, he uses powerful examples, such as strategies being used  to bring about peace between Palestine and Israel. He also talks about the power of empathy as a mass force -- something that happens on a collective scale.
