This is relevant to our fitness and our careers!  Great scoop!

 

From the article:

 

If you think that making $20,000 a year is normal to you, then $30,000 will seem like a lot, but you won’t try to get to $40,000, not until you feel comfortable with seeing yourself as someone who earns $30,000 (and earning $30,000 for some time).

Servant Leadership: A Virtuous Cycle of Service | Robert K. Greenleaf

Servant Leadership: A Virtuous Cycle of Service | Robert K. Greenleaf | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Words matter. The right word makes a world of difference in what’s communicated and understood. Mark Twain observed, “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lighting and a lightning bug.”

John Michel's curator insight, March 15, 2013 9:01 PM

A classic quotation from Greenleaf is: “The servant-leader isservant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.” Greenleaf held a high and noble view of service and envisioned servant-leaders helping their followers navigate Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

Love this scoop Roger, thank you!. Here is a quote I love from it:

 

 “Only when we are willing to unlearn what we already know, and give up our old mental maps of how things work, can we navigate forward in our work, career and lives more efficiently and get to where we want to go more effectively.”

donhornsby's curator insight, March 11, 2013 8:33 AM

(From the article): So, what assumptions are you going to challenge about your life today? Any area of your life where you continually chase your tail, or keep coming up against the same problem again and again, is an area that likely holds outdated assumptions, and is an invitation for you to ‘unlearn and relearn’ what you think is possible.

Incorporate these truths into your life and watch your future blossom

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.

David Hain's insight:

"Most organizational leaders would agree that without constant upgrades, they would be trying to achieve success with their hands tied behind their backs.

That’s why it is so baffling that so many of these leaders and their companies continue to operate their most precious “assets” – their employees – using badly dated thinking, outmoded concepts and really old-school beliefs."

Really intersting artcile applying science to what we all inituitively know. Whay is it then that so many businesses and leaders / managers operate in a contrary way. Food for thought.

John Michel's curator insight, March 16, 2013 8:58 PM

The mysteries of the brain are unfolding.  Only a generation ago, we believed that our brains were static and fixed, prone to inevitable atrophy.  Now we are beginning to understand that the brain can rewire itself in remarkable ways. And we are the catalysts!

The not-so-good news is that what often remains – as stagnant and immobile as our brains are not – are the ways we still cling to old ideas about organizational systems that do not maximize human performance.
