Are athletes really getting faster, better, stronger? | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it
When you look at sporting achievements over the last decades, it seems like humans have gotten faster, better and stronger in nearly every way. Yet as David Epstein points out in this delightfully counter-intuitive talk, we might want to lay off the self-congratulation.

(From the article): Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don’t fear silence. They aren’t afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 16, 6:11 PM

'"In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm… in the real world all rests on perseverance.”

Goethe

Leadership goes beyond personal courage to inspiring courage in others.

Inspiring courage:

Acknowledge the fears of others...Elevate courage by acknowledging your own fears......Courage transforms fear into preparation...Focus on purpose. ...Facing uncertainty without purpose makes chickens of us all.

Nowhere is the elephant-rider dilemma clearer than in education reform. Policymakers are classic riders, pointing straight ahead and asserting all the while that “this is the right way, the clearest best path … I’ve got this beast under control.” Researchers, too, often act as riders, captivated by their carefully collected data and certain that their objective findings will prove compelling.

These elephants may try out a few different trails, lumber up a few small hills, but c
