Leif Hans Daniel Andersson's insight:

That’s the right perspective! Olympians aren’t demigods—they’re just people, like us. They show us we can do amazing things when we put our minds to the task.

Opening Ceremony Forgot to Mention a Few Things

Opening Ceremony Forgot to Mention a Few Things | Eudaimonia | Scoop.it
Where was contemporary Russia in the Olympic opening ceremony? In its carefully pruned and beautified history.
Leif Hans Daniel Andersson's insight:

Yes, yes. Russia is bad. Rotten, through and through. This article isn’t the first one to say so. But is that really the most constructive way to understand the flaws of a nation or of a person? Essentialist attacks leave no room for reimagination or for the glimmer of a possibility of a better future.

 

Just like people, nations can change.

Shopper Psychology - subjective perception of value in online retail
Leif Hans Daniel Andersson's insight:

Fascinating post by my friend and classmate, Alex DePaoli (Stanford PhD candidate in business administration). I think this phenomenon relates to http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/property/#2:

 

“G.W.F. Hegel’s account of property centers on the contribution property makes to the development of the self, ‘superseding and replacing the subjective phase of personality’ [citation omitted] and giving some sort of external reality to what would otherwise be the mere idea of individual freedom.”

Are you a transformational Change Agent?  Clarifying post

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 13, 2014 11:29 AM

Transforming leadership and other leading which is related i.e. adaptive and servant are so complex they cannot be turned into 7 habits, 3 feature, and 15 qualities. What happens is they turn into easy talking points which fill the air and resolve nothing. That is why 70% of change efforts (fixed and linear plans are counter to real change) fail. We think we can create formula and recipes for change when it requires being present in the planning and change process in a dialogic manner.

The Olympic Games: A Social-Science Perspective

The Olympic Games: A Social-Science Perspective | Eudaimonia | Scoop.it

“[The growth of the Olympics’ television audience] has allowed viewers throughout the world to share in the pageantry […] and the victories and achievements of outstanding athletes. […] On a less favorable note, it is also accountable for many of the problems and excesses that have ensued as a result of the accompanying increase in commercialism.”

“Many Olympic winter sports involve feats of incredible dynamism and gravity-defying stunts, making it seem as though the life of an elite winter athlete would be a nonstop adventure full of half-pipes and triple Axels. […] But what audiences don’t see are the grueling practice sessions that involve hours of repetitive, muscle-straining movements. […] Drawing from interviews with top athletes and their coaches, along with psychological studies of athletes, here are seven ways Olympians stay motivated through the training slog.”
