What 48 Hours Alone in the Wilderness Taught Me About Unconditional Love | Becoming Minimalist

What 48 Hours Alone in the Wilderness Taught Me About Unconditional Love | Becoming Minimalist | Virtual & Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

One of the ideas that came to my mind at this time and from this entry was this concept of a “utility margin.” In any situation you are in, you possess some thing, whether material or immaterial, that you can give to someone else who will get more utility, value, and/or appreciation out of it than you are getting from it right now. The idea is that while you possess it, it is not worth as much as it could be to someone else.

Amy Melendez's insight:

"We forget that we are just passing through this world so we put emphasis on possessions and status when all we have to leave behind is how we’ve made others feel.

We allow difficult decisions to become exponentially more difficult because we don’t focus on the components of the decision that matter. Make decisions about people and not things. Not even places over people. Sometimes we’re fortunate to find great people in great places but when we have the option to choose, always choose people over things. Things break. Places change. Your effect on people lasts forever."

How performance recognition impacts innovation and employee engagement

What is a big company without a solid set of employees? How would Google, Microsoft, or Amazon function if they were run by one man behind a computer? The answer might be, they would function quite well for awhile—after all, that is how most of the biggest companies are started. But what about once they pick up? Once Amazon started shipping packages to millions of people across the world, it might not have worked quite as well with one man in his garage.

Amy Melendez's insight:

"At the core, a company’s employees are everything. They are the ones that keep things running, that make the company what it is—whether good or bad. So it is only common decency that you should reward them with the due amount of respect and recognition that they deserve. But it is more than common decency that makes performance recognition a crucial facet of any successful business. As you can see from the slides, there is a lot of research that has proven the effect of proper employee recognition programs on things such as employee engagement, drive, work relationships, and employee retention (to name just a few). For more information, take a glance through the slides and see for yourself—happy employees make for a happy business."
