9 Essential Habits of Remarkably Effective People

You don't have to be born able to execute at a high level. Here's how you can develop that vital skill.


There's a huge biggest difference between being efficient and being effective.


Efficient people are well organized and competent. They check things off their to-do list. They complete projects. They get stuff done.


Effective people do all that ... but they check the right things off their to-do list. They complete the right projects. They get the right stuff done.

Ivo Nový's insight:

And everything starts with goals. Effort without a genuine purpose is just effort. Effective people don't just know what to do--they know why. They have a long-term goal. They have short-term goals that support their long-term goals.

Why You Need To Feed Your Brain Different Experiences

Why You Need To Feed Your Brain Different Experiences | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
You wouldn't eat one food all the time, so why do you spend all of your workday in front of a screen?


As Clive Thompson, the author of Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better, would argue, working in analog or mediated ways changes how our brains and thoughts behave:


anyone who's ever received a serendipitous answer from someone on Twitter has experienced how technology can amplify our social thinking, while at the same time if you've put off your projects because you're fiddling on Facebook, you know much tech can distract us--to the point of changing the structure of our brains.

15 People Who Are Living The Dream | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

"Living the dream" can mean a lot of different things. To some, it's a life spent kicking back on a beach with an endless supply of Mai Tais. To others, it could be traveling all over the world, meeting new people, and experiencing a hundred different cultures. And to others, it is a dream job in which you get paid to do the things you love. 

These people have taken big risks to live exactly the kind of life they want.

Bonnie Burns's curator insight, September 4, 3:05 PM

So many site owners that I talk to can’t afford to outsource their writing and don’t feel they are equipped to handle it themselves. I remind them that we don’t all have the same skills and talents but as a business owner sometimes you just have to do stuff you can’t do.  Also, remember, it’s true there is a certain element of writing that comes naturally but there is also part that is learned.  You can learn to become a better writer.

What Do All Mentally Tough People Do? By Chris Gaborit

What Do All Mentally Tough People Do? By Chris Gaborit | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

In all of these different contexts, one characteristic emerged as a predictor for success. It wasn't social intelligence, good looks, IQ, or physical health. It was "grit," which the dictionary also defines as "mentally toughness."

 

Duckworth describes this quality in successful people as "perseverance and passion to achieve long-term goals; having stamina; sticking with your future day in and day out and working hard to make that future a reality; a marathon not a sprint.”


Her studies have shown that there is a correlation between mental toughness and self-control. To achieve those long-term goals there are things mentally tough people avoid. Here are seven of those:

A guide to being the kind of world explorer you want to be.. 


No, you don’t have to be the guy who memorized the guidebook or the Wikipedia page for a particular destination, but it’s always a good idea to have a sense of where you’re going. Where do the locals like to spend their time? What is the culture like? Is tipping customary, or will it be offensive?


You can never be wholly prepared for every experience abroad, but it’s nice for both parties if you make an effort to minimize unnecessarily awkward interactions with the local people.

You Define You - No One Else Does | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

We define what we are. If you call yourself lazy, stupid, talentless – that’s all you’ll ever be because that’s what you’ve accepted, you made yourself into this person and that’s who you are now.


It’s never too late to break through, reject this distorted image of yourself and embrace a warrior attitude. No one is strong by default and no one is brave by default – you cultivate these qualities because you know it’s worth the trouble. When no one believes in what you can be, who you can eventually become – you must do that yourself ten times with resilience. You define you – no one else does.
