New Year’s resolutions rarely work, because good intentions don’t often survive a collision with reality.” I read that quote by marketing expert, Seth Godin, on New Year’s Day in 2013. My immediate thought was that if he was correct in his assertion, then what would be the point of the age-old tradition of setting resolutions in the first place? Talk about discouragement. After some more thought, I came to the conclusion that there must be some truth to his statement, because if that were not the case, weight watchers and many self-help services may soon be out of business. It seems there are entire industries that thrive off individual’s attempts at reaching their goals. If the redundancy and ultimate failure is inevitable, then why bother setting goals? I believe the answer is in the old adage that without vision, people perish. As a young entrepreneur, discipline and fortitude were the..

Knowing what not to do is just as valuable as knowing what to do!

John Michel's curator insight, April 18, 10:50 PM

While it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to compare yourself to others, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within. Regardless of what people think of you at any particular moment, one thing is certain—you’re never as good or bad as they say you are.

John Michel's curator insight, April 18, 8:02 AM

Successful people don’t wait to get a raise; they work hard to earn a raise. Successful businesses don’t wait for higher prices to deliver greater value; they deliver greater value to earn higher prices. Successful entrepreneurs don’t wait for a payoff to give their all to a startup; they give their all so they can earn a decent payoff.

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

Social changes make it easier than ever to build and maintain relationships that matter. External boundaries such as time zones, location and means of communication have rapidly evolved. People can now share pictures, video, quick thoughts or even their current location with thousands of individuals with just a few clicks of a button.
