3 words that'll change your life

3 words that'll change your life | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
This simple phrase can instantly help make organizations run more effectively -- and let you sleep better at night...

It happens every day. Your boss, a customer, somebody needs something done yesterday. No, they don't need it done now. That somehow fails to convey the unbelievably critical sense of urgency of what they need done. Nope. Today's not good enough. You actually have to go back in time and get it done before you were asked.

Not to dump this entirely at the feet of management. Panic-stricken employees are forever bursting into their bosses' offices with emergencies, demands and requisitions they can't live without. If they don't get it, life as we know it will cease to exist. The sky will fall, the earth will stop turning and the dead will rise from their graves.

All hail that holiest of all business acronyms: ASAP.

* 7 signs of a dysfunctional company
* 7 signs of a high-performance company
* 10 things you should learn to say
If everyone would just learn how to say one thing, organizations would be more effective, the workplace would be less stressful and businesses would be more successful. Try it. It'll free your soul and blow your mind. Say it along with me: "Tomorrow's another day."

Here are five examples of how learning to say, "Tomorrow's another day" can improve your and your team's performance, not to mention lower your blood pressure:

Top 29 Ways To Stay Creative [Infographic + Marty Note]

Top 29 Ways To Stay Creative [Infographic + Marty Note] | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Infographics on being creative in life and inspiration with top 29 ways to be creative on success and startup exploring and researching ideas and concept...

Marty Note

My favorite ways to stay creative are:

* Free writing.
* Drawing and painting.

* Reading (actual BOOKS not blog posts lol).
* Talking to smart friends.
* Hitting the museums especially NYC or Philly.
* Riding a bicycle (very Zen meditation for me).

* Creating thought experiments.

* Doing math in my head (I suck at it so it forces all the reserves in).

* Music especially LOUD rock or jazz (Miles especially).

* Taking pictures to support a story.

* Watching TV (Ovation, PBS and HBO best sources of inspiration).

* Working out (back when I had the energy to do that LOL).

* Playing with my crazy bengal cat Lucian.

* Shopping but only in musuem or art stores. 
* Working in public (makes me zero in and focus deeper).

* Looking at great design (effect is delayed but there).

* Changing a location (traveling).

* Used to read magazines, blogs don't seem to do it.

* Read something HARD I don't understand (all in again).

* Interview someone smarter than me.

* Curate something especially across nontraditional lines. 

* Create a contest or a game. 

* Manipulate SPEED of task (speed up or slow way down).

* Think about creative times in the past (working with Alton Pickens at Vassar).

 

Other great ways to stay creative in this infographic.

How Rejection Breeds Creativity

How Rejection Breeds Creativity | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
With a few small changes in your mindset, you can turn rejection into a dramatic boost for your motivation and focus.

 

Being rejected is often a statement that you (or your ideas) are too far from the current mainstream to be considered safe or comfortable. This could actually be a good thing. You're ahead of your time. While the group or client may not believe they need you right away, the world probably does. If you're too far from the mainstream, you could be the one pushing progress forward.
