3 Life-Changing Habits of High Performers

3 Life-Changing Habits of High Performers | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
Start practicing these three habits and you too can get closer to success.
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

One of the most important messages to take from this article can be summed up in one word, "habit".  Being a high performer is not about doing what it takes to be successful some of the time, it's about doing what it takes to be successful all the time.

10 Jobs Artificial Intelligence Will Replace (and 10 That Are Safe)

10 Jobs Artificial Intelligence Will Replace (and 10 That Are Safe) | Leading Forward | Scoop.it

The other day at work, my colleague, HubSpot Marketing Director Ryan Bonnici, sent around a link on Slack -- to a website called “Will Robots Take My Job?”


We were thrilled to learn marketing managers had only a 1.4% chance of our jobs being automated or replaced by robots and artificial intelligence. And although I breathed a sigh of relief that writing has only a 3.8% chance of being automated, it made me think about job roles that weren’t so lucky.


If you think job disruption by AI is limited to the assembly lines, think again: AI is doing a better job than humans at some aspects of sales and marketing, too....

How to Stay at the Top of Your Game

How to Stay at the Top of Your Game | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
My biggest strength—and therefore, my biggest flaw—is that I’m a perfectionist.

If I’m doing something, even if it’s a blog post or a small freebie for promotional purposes, I’m going to make sure that it’s something I’m proud of putting my name on. I don’t take shortcuts and I don’t like people who do. This means that I’m often overworked and overwhelmed (link is external), but it also means that I, at least in my own head, feel that I’m kickass. (It’s also why I’ve learned to say no to a lot of things.)

10 Unforgettable Quotes by Jim Rohn

10 Unforgettable Quotes by Jim Rohn | Leading Forward | Scoop.it
When personal development legend Jim Rohn passed away in 2009, he left an incredible gift: his encouraging, uplifting messages and inspiring, thought-provoking quotes, beloved by millions and shared throughout the world to this day. 
For what would be his 84th birthday on Sept. 17, SUCCESS celebrates and remembers the life of Jim Rohn with 10 of his most beloved quotes:
1. “Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Don’t wish for less problems, wish for more skills. Don’t wish for less cha
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Jim Rohn has been a virtual mentor of mine since I began my career many years ago.  I too cherish and am grateful for the many uplifting and thoughtful messages he shared with the world and planted in my spirit from the very beginning of my career.   Messages that encouraged and motivated me to purposefully decide and act upon how I would engage and lead in the pursuit of my goals.  Here are a few additional favorite Jim Rohn quotes that continue to inspire and speak to me as I go forward on my journey:

 

“Life expects us to make a reasonable amount of progress in a reasonable amount of time. That's why they make those second grade chairs so small.”  - Jim Rohn

 

“Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better. When you become better it will naturally become easier.” - Jim Rohn


"Let others lead small lives but not you.  Let others argue over small things, but not you.  Let others cry over small hurts, but not you.  Let others leave their future in someone else's hands, but not you." - Jim Rohn


"Motivation alone is not enough.  If you have an idiot and you motivate them, now you have a motivated idiot." - Jim Rohn

 

"Work harder on yourself, than you do on the job. You can't give more if you don't become more." - Jim Rohn

 

"The greatest gift you can give somebody is your own personal development. I used to say, "If you will take care of me, I will take care of you. "Now I say, I will take care of me for you, if you will take care of you for me." - Jim Rohn

 

"Miss a meal if you have to, but don't miss a book." - Jim Rohn


"We don’t get paid for the hour; we get paid for the value we bring to the hour." - Jim Rohn

 

"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." - Jim Rohn

 

“Managers help people see themselves as they are; Leaders help people to see themselves better than they are.” - Jim Rohn

 

"How long should you try? Until.” - Jim Rohn

 

"First come reasons, then come answers." - Jim Rohn

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | Stanford Graduate School of Business

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | Stanford Graduate School of Business | Leading Forward | Scoop.it

We've all seen this: The CEO who acts instinctively, sometimes with terrible results, keeps his or her job and even develops a loyal following. Meanwhile, the thinker in the executive suite who consistently offers the right, deliberated answer rarely gets a promotion.

Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

Interesting article and very relevant to leadership decision making today.  As leaders we have to better weigh the options when anticipating the need and opportunity to "lead in the moment" versus waiting until all our "t's" are crossed and "i's" are dotted. Maybe Nike was also onto something that could improve a leaders influence in the right situation when they said "Just Do It"! The bottom-line is, leaders have to be careful not to "overthink" the small decisions or "underthink" the bigger ones is they want to truly be influential.

Preparing humans for the posthuman future of artificial intelligence

Preparing humans for the posthuman future of artificial intelligence | Leading Forward | Scoop.it

What will happen as we enter the era of human augmentation, artificial intelligence and government-by-algorithm? James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention, said: “Coexisting safely and ethically with intelligent machines is the central challenge of the twenty-first century.”

 

A lot of folks are earnestly exploring the topic. “Will scientists soon be able to create supercomputers that can read a newspaper with understanding, or write a news story, or create novels, or even formulate laws?” asks J. Storrs Hall in Beyond AI: Creating the Conscience of the Machine (2007). “And if machine intelligence advances beyond human intelligence, will we need to start talking about a computer’s intentions?”

 

Sharing this concern, SpaceX/Tesla entrepreneur Elon Musk has joined with Y Combinator founder Sam Altman to establish OpenAI, an endeavor that aims to keep artificial intelligence research — and its products — accountable by maximizing transparency and openness.

 

Among the most-worried is Swiss author Gerd Leonhard, whose new book Technology Vs. Humanity: The Coming Clash Between Man and Machine, coins an interesting term, “androrithm,” to contrast with the algorithms that are implemented in every digital calculating engine or computer. Some foresee algorithms ruling the world with the inexorable automaticity of reflex, and Leonhard asks: “Will we live in a world where data and algorithms triumph over androrithms… i.e., all that stuff that makes us human?”

 

Artificial intelligence. Cognitive computing. The Singularity. Digital obesity. Printed food. The Internet of Things. The death of privacy. The end of work-as-we-know-it, and radical longevity: The imminent clash between technology and humanity is already rushing towards us. What moral values are you prepared to stand up for—before being human alters its meaning forever? Before it’s too late, we must stop and ask the big questions: How do we embrace technology without becoming it? When it happens — gradually, then suddenly — the machine era will create the greatest watershed in human life on Earth.

"But our job is not to delineate or prescribe. It is to find enough of the errors and calamities in advance, cancel those we can, and build enough virtuous cycles so that our children may stand on our shoulders, doing and achieving and pondering and making ethical decisions for their own time. Doing all of that both clumsily and brilliantly. And then yammering too much advice at their own heirs."

Getting stuck is very frustrating.  Having all these great ideas percolating in your head and not being able to bring them to fruition can be exhausting and a major source of disappointment in yourself. 
Angela Chammas, M.Ed., M.S., CPC's insight:

I use the words "BE GREAT" to remind me that it is up to me to seize the "moments that matter" that come into my life to do great things.  Just remember:


  • Believe in the unique gifts and talents you have to offer the world; seed your talent and let it grow
  • Express your knowledge, expertise and authentic self to accomplish great things; don't hide you


  • Grab every "moment that matters"  by giving your very best, by doing what is doable
  • Release your fears so you can embrace the possible and imagine a new way; make the unknown known 
  • Enjoy the ride and the journey life is taking you on to be the person you want to be; to fulfill your life's purpose 
  • Act with purpose, passion and power to inspire and generate action; to make a positive difference
  • Trust that time will give you the opening and the opportunity to do great things; stay prepared and ready to seize the moment

Evidence suggests organisations’ leadership strategies are failing to keep up with a fast-changing world. To bridge this gulf, the notion of what a leader looks like needs to change, according to Cliff Oswick, professor in organisational behaviour theory and deputy dean at Cass Business School. “The days of the ‘rock star’ CEO are behind us,” he says. “We don’t need leaders who demonstrate ‘strong leadership’.
