Your second quarter is coming to an end and your sales team isn't closing the deals it's forecasted. As expenses outweigh the current cash flow, your CEO is forced to prune the organization and puts the pressure on you to perform. You take the stand and demand immediate compliance from your team and explicitly set a high standard for performance -- will this leadership style yield the results you require?

What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life)

What the Research on Habit Formation Reveals About Willpower (And How You Can Apply it to Your Life) | Flow & Happiness in life, sport and work ! | Scoop.it

In the past decade, there has been a lot of fascinating academic research conducted around habit formation and willpower. By examining things like how smokers quit, why student perform well, and how New Year's resolvers stay on track, researchers are starting to piece together the answers to how we can build lasting habits and improve our ability to resist temptation. One surprising result is this: to improve your overall well-being, start a new regular habit. Pretty much any positive habit will do.

At the turn of the 21st century, a landmark meta-study was conducted that looked at the question "Does Self Control Resemble a Muscle?" After reviewing hundreds of studies over the past few decades, the authors concluded that the answer was "Yes, it does."

Social scientists all over the world started to examine willpower and self-regulation from this "muscle" metaphor. For instance, if willpower is like a muscle, and muscles can get stronger over time with training, could willpower similarly be trained and strengthened?

Paul Grout's comment, August 23, 2013 2:57 AM
Strong enthusiasm and willpower is great to get started with our missions to serve the world. My concern is that if we keep pushing ourselves without enjoying the process we can may start to become lost in the field of 'wanting' and not doing.

We are all creative machines who desire passion and purpose in what we do. So I believe that willpower is much more effective when we create a underlining purpose which gives us the passion keep on track to achieve the goal with flow. Focus is very important. What helps me stay on track of my mission to help people find their creative flow is to ensure I have a healthy balance for work and play. For example, I normally get my best ideas when I relax and dedicate time for fun. Thank you for this inspiring post. http://creativeflowevolution.com

(From the article): Flagging passion is a sign something’s gone wrong. While it may be a flawed business, it might be that a different approach will reignite potential, and your passion.


TRY THIS: Build in restorative time and some distance. It goes without saying that you need sleep, at least 7 hours. But rather than wait until you can’t get out of bed or function, and have to take an extended leave of absence, make use of the time you do have off, as well as weekends, to unplug from work and plug into the people and activities that give you energy, not drain you of it. You don’t have to run yourself into the ground to know that it’s time for some R&R—nor should you. And you can only get there by taking your foot off the gas once in a while. Otherwise that engine is going to wear out.

(From the article): When we push our creativity and productivity to its limits, we can easily find ourselves teetering on brink of burnout.

Therefore it’s worth occasionally referring back to this list to self-diagnose.

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 11:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

Technology is invading our ability to attend at an alarming rate .  We need to develop tools to help us raise our awareness of what is going on in our mind and know how to bring it back.

Habits: How They Form And How To Break Them : NPR | Flow & Happiness in life, sport and work ! | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"It turns out that every habit starts with a psychological pattern called a "habit loop," which is a three-part process. First, there's a cue, or trigger, that tells your brain to go into automatic mode and let a behavior unfold.

 

"Then there's the routine, which is the behavior itself," Duhigg tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. "That's what we think about when we think about habits."

 

"The third step, he says, is the reward: something that your brain likes that helps it remember the "habit loop" in the future."

"What we know from lab studies is that it's never too late to break a habit. Habits are malleable throughout your entire life. But we also know that the best way to change a habit is to understand its structure — that once you tell people about the cue and the reward and you force them to recognize what those factors are in a behavior, it becomes much, much easier to change."
