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."

Why It’s important To Embrace Failure - Do Good Digital

Why It’s important To Embrace Failure - Do Good Digital | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Once you’ve embraced failure, you no longer fear it. I am not sure where I heard this adage but it’s stuck with me for quite some time. However, it didn’t quite resonate with me until I experienced a number of my own failures.  If you feel like you are bombarded by incessant platitudes about failure(...)
Karen Bowden's insight:

"Having a fearless mindset means just that — overcoming your reservations and fears so that you can live up to your potential."

 

- Always plan for a rainy day

- Change is inevitable; and

- Always be thankful for what you have

Wanted in College Graduates: Tolerance for Ambiguity | Good Advice | Scoop.it
Three months after I graduated from college and following a summer journalism fellowship at the Arizona Republic in Phoenix, I had my first interview for a full-time newspaper reporting job. It was in Wilmington, N.C. The managing editor of the newspaper picked me up at the airport and after a quick lunch, he dropped me off on Front Street, the historic main thoroughfare along the banks of the Cape Fear River. He told me to go find a story.It was a Friday afternoon in late August and I had to report and write the story by 5 p.m. I had never been to Wilmington before and I didn’t know an

The practice of storytelling is full of lessons -- that apply to becoming a better storyteller. That's a little-known secret in our profession.


And thank heavens business story professional Lianne Picot from up in Toronto, Canada clues the world in with her latest blog. I love it. She shares a story and connects it to all the mistakes she made, and then links those mistakes back to lessons in how to tell better stories.


The tips at the end of the post are great and a good reminder list for crafting great stories.


Enjoy this unique twist. It's a good example of ways everyday life can help us perfect our craft.

John Paul Sartre and the Existential Choice

The existentialist Jean-Paul Sartre thought that human beings live in anguish. Not because life is terrible. But rather because, we’re ‘condemned to be free’. We're ‘thrown’ into existence, become aware of ourselves, and have to make choices. Even deciding not to choose is a choice.

What it is to be a "learning worker"

What it is to be a "learning worker" | Good Advice | Scoop.it

"... it’s about individuals continuously learning for themselves and staying abreast of developments in their field of work not just through self-study but in their professional networks and other social channels."

Karen Bowden's insight:

Try this simple, phased approach:


Learn Out Loud

Write down anything you learned at the end of each day.

 

Personal Planned Learning

- Think about something you want to improve.

- Spend 20-30 minutes each day learning about it.

 

Reflect

- Take time to think about what you learned.

- Decide how you can use what you learned.

 

Pass It On

The best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else.

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It | Good Advice | Scoop.it

When scientists have studied procrastination, they've typically focused on how people are miserable at weighing costs and benefits across time.

 

In the last few years, however, scientists have begun to think that procrastination might have less to do with time than emotion. Procrastination "really has nothing to do with time-management,” Joseph Ferrari, a professor of psychology at DePaul University, told Psychological Science. “To tell the chronic procrastinator to just do it would be like saying to a clinically depressed person, cheer up.”

11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make

11 Mistakes Successful People Never Make | Good Advice | Scoop.it

If you're not happy with your life, either personally or professionally, take a quick look in the mirror. The problem may not be lack of opportunity, or education, or capital, or connections--the culprit could be you.

The difficulty could lie in what you believe--and what you do.

What do successful people believe and do differently?
