20 Social Media Books Website Owners Should Be Reading In 2015 | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Several years ago I was very enamored with all of the knowledge that is available on blogs. I couldn’t believe the wealth of information that many of my favorite blogs published (for free!) that I didn’t have easy access to anywhere else. So enamored in fact, I couldn’t believe people were still writing books! How outdated, right?


Well, not really.

How Assertive Should You Be? The Answers Will Surprise You.

How Assertive Should You Be? The Answers Will Surprise You. | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Google the phrase “assertiveness training” and over 700,000 possibilities will pop up.


We take it as truth that how assertive or unassertive we are affects every aspect of our lives, including work and relationships. Culturally, we link assertiveness to success, leadership, and getting ahead, but still, there’s ambivalence: Look up “assertive” in the dictionary and you’ll see its synonym is “aggressive.”


Don’t rely on your own perception of how assertive or unassertive you are; it’s not likely to be accurate. If you’re beginning to notice that how you’re acting is having real social costs, pay attention.

10 Good Communication Skills You Absolutely Must Know

10 Good Communication Skills You Absolutely Must Know | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Every relationship you have is impacted by your ability — or inability — to communicate well.


Whether at work, in your love life, or with friends and family, good communication fosters better understanding, helps us resolve differences, promotes mutual trust and respect, and allows creative ideas to flourish.


Although communication seems fairly simple and straightforward, so much of our communication is misunderstood or misinterpreted. Of course, this can cause conflict and wounded feelings in personal and professional relationships.

Alex Vielman's curator insight, November 23, 2015 3:17 PM

Maps like the ones posted in this article, really helps people to understand and break down deeply of understanding the entire region as a whole. Visualization is very important in geography when trying to understand the region people are talking about. this region as goes down to the Mesopotamia Era. It is important to know, how the culture was in this area to how it differentiated during the Ottoman Empire. During the first couple of maps, we can begin to see the division of the entire region. As you go on, we begin to notice the divisions between people, religion, language between states and in-states. There is so much information to know about the Middle East region and it may be even harder to understand due to the tons of changes and separations, but it is important to understand these divisions like the Sunni's and the Shi'ites in order to fully explain the development and the current situations that are occurring in this region as we speak. 

Matt Ramsdell's curator insight, December 7, 2015 5:18 PM

These 40 maps are a very interesting way of showing how people have traveled around and moved about the Earth from the time of the fertile crescent era to the people of today. It shows us the paths that people have taken to move to a new location. How they used the Meditteranean Sea to move from one side to the other. It also shows how the Tigris and Euphrates came together to form a smaller area of the Persian gulf. This led to smalled economic growth because now there is less land for imports and exports.

Anneliese Sjogren's curator insight, December 10, 2015 10:04 PM

I liked looking at these maps, because seeing how boarders change, and how countries evolve is interesting to me. Sometimes I forget many of the Middle Eastern countries, so this map is helpful in showing them.

13 Ways to Teach Yourself to Be More Confident

13 Ways to Teach Yourself to Be More Confident | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Are you as confident as you'd like to be? Few people would answer "yes" to that question. But, according to Becky Blalock, author and former Fortune 500 executive, anyone can learn to be more confident. And it's a skill we can teach ourselves.

Begin by forgetting the notion that confidence, leadership, and public speaking are abilities people are born with. In fact, research shows that being shy and cautious is the natural human state. "That's how people in early times lived to pass on their genes, so it's in our gene pool," she says. "You had to be cautious to survive. But the things they needed to worry about then are not the things we need to worry about today."

How do you teach yourself to be more confident? Here's some advice..

In today’s busy, fast-paced world, it is easy to take sleep for granted. It’s normal to see a number of young professionals rush to the office so early in the morning and come home during the wee hours at night.

However, it might be useful to take a break, contemplate on why sleep is essential, and remember the need to get more restful sleep.
