We Can't Have Comedy and Be Politically Correct at the Same Time | Big Think | Good Advice | Scoop.it

How to Boss Yourself Around

How to Boss Yourself Around | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and there’s a good reason for the cliché — the NYU professor Peter Gollwitzer estimates that intentions account for just 20 to 30 percent of variance in a person’s actual behavior, suggesting that even if you truly want to listen to your better self, it doesn’t always happen. So Gollwitzer suggests the strategy of implementation intentions — in plainer English, you could call this if-then statements."

 

"It’s little wonder, then, that getting yourself to behave now can be so difficult — it’s like you’re acting for the benefit of some person you’re vaguely familiar with, but you’ve never actually met. Why finish cleaning the apartment when you’ve just discovered Jane the Virgin on Hulu? Those dirty dishes sound like a problem for future you. "

 

"...part of the problem is that people believe they need to foster some motivation before tackling a task. “Who says you need to wait until you ‘feel like’ doing something in order to start doing it?” Burkeman writes. “The problem, from this perspective, isn’t that you don’t feel motivated; it’s that you imagine you need to feel motivated.” After all, when your boss asks you to complete a memo by the end of the day, I’m sure she couldn’t care less whether you felt like writing it. Expect the same from yourself."

10 Words Every Girl Should Learn

10 Words Every Girl Should Learn | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"Stop interrupting me." 

"I just said that."

"No explanation needed."

Solnit's tipping point experience really did take the cake. She was talking to a man at a cocktail party when he asked her what she did. She replied that she wrote books and she described her most recent one, River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West. The man interrupted her soon after she said the word Muybridge and asked, "And have you heard about the very important Muybridge book that came out this year?" He then waxed on, based on his reading of a review of the book, not even the book itself, until finally, a friend said, "That's her book." He ignored that friend (also a woman) and she had to say it more than three times before "he went ashen" and walked away. If you are not a woman, ask any woman you know what this is like, because it is not fun and happens to all of us.
