Celebrate the Stuff You Already Own

Celebrate the Stuff You Already Own | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Origin stories are vitally important for your business.


They are vital for the way that your customers perceive and engage with you and they are vital for your employees.


But the reason they are important is because they provide us all with a narrative that speaks to our sense of purpose.

Ivo Nový's insight:

Effective storytelling is fine and beautiful art which stands out above all the noise.

A well presented story is successful in achieving its objectives and it is remembered long after all others are forgotten.


So, show, don’t tell.
Get people to listen. Engage with visual content and combine it with other effective content.

Why Change Is So Hard And How To Lead And Be the Change In 5 Simple Steps

Why Change Is So Hard And How To Lead And Be the Change In 5 Simple Steps | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

We live in a time of ever accelerating transformation and change, right? Technologies have transformed our industrial economies into services and the innovation economy. The way we communicate, stay in touch, share ideas and emotions are transforming and enriching our lives.


If “CHANGE” is the only constant in life, shouldn’t we are getting used to it? Why is change often so scary? Why do we and the people around us don´t see the opportunities, but only the risks involved in change ? 


The answer to these questions might be a simple one:  we are human.

(From the article): We’re in a world full of opportunities. Some of them look scary, but they are definitely out there to make our world a better place. Every stage of the emotional roller coaster is normal and to be expected. When you are mindful and manage the emotions consciously, you can become the change you want to see in the world.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, December 1, 12:16 PM

What we resist, persists.  Change is a part of life and something we must embrace.  True leaders understand this.

Learn How to Learn

Learn How to Learn | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
To be creative you have to always be learning and always trying to find ways to make learning an enjoyable game for yourself.

Knowledge is different from learning. Knowledge is a stockpile. It’s a static accumulation. It is more important to learn than to know.

Learning is not about creating a store of knowledge. To learn, the mind has to be completely free. The mind cannot learn for a purpose. It has to explore in an open ended way.

Comfort is comforting, but it might narrow our experience at work - and beyond.

What Your "Working Memory" Does and How to Optimize It

What Your "Working Memory" Does and How to Optimize It | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Working memory is one of the most important cognitive functions we have.


It helps us through different key stages of our lives from learning the alphabet to understanding social situations, prioritizing multiple activities, and meeting deadlines.


But there are some ways we can try to increase our working memory capacity:


  • Reduce the stress in your life
  • Exercise More and Stay Fit
  • Learn new skills like plaing an instrument


We know that our brain has a limited capacity to hold on to information during a task and has a hard time deflecting distractions.

So, whatever we can do to increase this capacity - whether it’s exercising vigorously, learning a new skill, or practicing mindfulness techniques - helps us stay focused and quiets all those other millions of things trying to take away our attention.
