"For a long time, it was believed that as we aged, the con­nec­tions in the brain became fixed. Research has shown that in fact the brain never stops chang­ing through learn­ing. Plas­tic­ity IS the capac­ity of the brain to change with learn­ing. Changes asso­ci­ated with learn­ing occur mostly at the level of the con­nec­tions between neu­rons. New con­nec­tions can form and the inter­nal struc­ture of the exist­ing synapses can change."

How To Trick Your Brain To Hold On To Positive Habit Changes

How To Trick Your Brain To Hold On To Positive Habit Changes | content curate relations | Scoop.it

Nearly half of our everyday behaviors tend to be repeated in the same location almost every day, according to research out of Duke University. That means most of the time we are running on autopilot.

 

On average, a habit takes more like 66 days to form, with more intensive habits like doing 50 sit-ups every morning taking around 84 days to form, according to research out of University College of London that Dean references in his book. But these figures will often vary greatly from person to person.

 

Forming habits that stick isn't about finding a magic number. It's about being aware of your behaviors and environment and their effects on your brain. Here are some steps to get started:

Scoop.it Introduces New Layout Templates, Full Topic Embeds and Direct White-Label Publishing to WordPress

Scoop.it Introduces New Layout Templates, Full Topic Embeds and Direct White-Label Publishing to WordPress | content curate relations | Scoop.it

 

 

Scoop.it, the content discovery, curation, distribution and publishing platform has recently added some very significant improvements to its offering, that make it service even more interesting for any kind of online publisher, company or agency looking forward to find, vet and curate the best content available online on a specific topic.

 

The first and long-awaited new feature is the availability of multiple layout templates that Scoop.it publishers can now utilize and which can be swtiched to instantly.

 

The second one is full embedding of curated topics onto any web page to make it easiest for any publisher to rapidly integrate and display scoop.it content directly on their sites.

 

The third and most powerful new addition is the availability of a new white label direct publishing feature for WordPress-based publishers.

 

Although I have not had the opportunity to test this new feature, which is available only through a new Marketers subscription plan, it surely looks as the perfect fit for all those publishers who wanted to use Scoop.it more as a backend for producing curated content for their site than as a final publishing destination.

 

With these new additions Scoop.it consolidates itself as feature-rich, reliable and affordable content curation system that can satisfy many different types of needs: from education, to content marketing, news publishing and community building.

Nice to see SI moving along.  I haven't read this and I wonder if it's the news I read a few weeks ago.  At any rate I think SI is getting a bit ahead in the race between them and RebelMouse.  

 

I've had an issue in the UI with RM for almost 2 months and they don't seem inclined to do anything about it....but SI has always worked fine.

This post by Emily G. Buchler gives us a terrific way to think about our business stories that will generate an endless stream of stories that are cohesive to your brand. How? By telling stories within stories.


Yes -- what a great point! She then does a fabulous job explaining what she means by this statement, and gives examples so we 'get it'.


Put this article into the category of 'strategic storytelling'. Yes, we need to craft our business stories. But if we don't think about them strategically, we can end up with messages at cross purposes with themselves as we produce content across different channels. 


So go read this article because I think it will really help you generate ideas for more stories you can tell -- but in a way that is consistent with your brand.

How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down

How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down | content curate relations | Scoop.it

While we all expect setbacks and challenges in work and life, sometimes they’re beyond epic. Perhaps you lost your job a year ago or you’re about to run out of money. Maybe you flunked your certification exam for the third time and everyone knows about it. Or it could be that your angry rant went viral, and now all of your coworkers are either whispering about you or shunning you entirely.

 

An occasional disaster does happen for most of us, either in our professional or personal lives. And while it’s not helpful for someone to say, “Well, at least you didn’t [insert something worse],” many people have been through unimaginable hardships.

5 Reliable Ways to Use Content as a Referral Tool

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, May 14, 2014 12:34 PM

Content can create great relationships: we meet - at least virtually - a lot of people through the content they write, curate or publish. But content can also be the best way to build on existing relationships in valuable ways that are described in this post. 


One of the 5 ways John Jantsch describes here is content curation and I wanted to elaborate on this.


A model for involving existing relationships and partners in your content strategy is to offer them to join in your content curation efforts. By curating content as a group of partners, you not only spread the workload but also bring additional visibility and networks to your content, therefore  amplifying your impact. This model for collaborative content curation has already been used by some on Scoop.it leveraging the suggestions of the free version or the team feature of the Business and Enterprise versions which offer group content curation. 


Of course the first application of this is within companies where many companies curate as a team. But moving forward, collaborative content curation is an important concept that will spread beyond the boundaries of an organization to become even more powerful as a way to involve all kinds of advocates and partners.

How To Build A New Habit

How To Build A New Habit | content curate relations | Scoop.it

According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. 

 

Understanding how to build new habits (and how your current ones work) is essential for making progress in your health, your happiness, and your life in general.

 

But there can be a lot of information out there and most of it isn’t very simple to digest. To solve this problem and break things down in a very simple manner, I have created this strategy guide for building new habits that actually stick.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 11, 2014 6:06 PM

Nowadays we are being constantly told that we must share our stories using video to get any traction. Then comes along this gem of an article that says, "Wait a minute...maybe not so!"


As the article says, telling a story via video can be powerful -- plus expensive and time-consuming. Even more, it may not be the ONLY way to "move" the hearts and minds of people.


Here's a quote from the post that stood out for me:

“The soul is ‘contained’ in the human voice,” says Dave Isay, founder of StoryCorps, and former NPR producer. Gotta love that. 


There is plenty of advice and other good points made in this article. When you are crunched for time or cash -- or both -- remember the power of the human voice and go audio. Or mix up your content strategy to include more audio.


You may be surprised with the results!

Can Meditation Really Slow Ageing?

Can Meditation Really Slow Ageing? | content curate relations | Scoop.it
It's seven in the morning on the beach in Santa Monica, California. The low sun glints off the waves and the clouds are still golden from the dawn. The view stretches out over thousands of miles of Pacific Ocean. In the distance, white villas of wealthy Los Angeles residents dot the Hollywood hills. Here by the shore, curlews and sandpipers cluster on the damp sand. A few metres back from the water's edge, a handful of people sit cross-legged: members of a local Buddhist centre about to begin an hour-long silent meditation.
