There is a never-ending supply of business gurus telling us how we can, and must, do more. But what is clear is that office workers are on a treadmill of pointless activity.

Amy Melendez's curator insight, August 16, 2013 7:07 PM

From the Article: "It is high time that we tried a different strategy—not “leaning in” but “leaning back”. There is a distinguished history of leadership thinking in the lean-back tradition. Lord Melbourne, Queen Victoria’s favourite prime minister, extolled the virtues of “masterful inactivity”. Herbert Asquith embraced a policy of “wait and see” when he had the job. Ronald Reagan also believed in not overdoing things: “It’s true hard work never killed anybody,” he said, “but I figure, why take the chance?”. This tradition has been buried in a morass of meetings and messages. We need to revive it before we schedule ourselves to death."

 

"In the early 1990s Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a psychologist, asked 275 creative types if he could interview them for a book he was writing. A third did not bother to reply at all and another third refused to take part. Peter Drucker, a management guru, summed up the mood of the refuseniks: “One of the secrets of productivity is to have a very big waste-paper basket to take care of all invitations such as yours.” Creative people’s most important resource is their time—particularly big chunks of uninterrupted time—and their biggest enemies are those who try to nibble away at it with e-mails or meetings. Indeed, creative people may be at their most productive when, to the manager’s untutored eye, they appear to be doing nothing."

John Michel's curator insight, August 16, 2013 8:18 PM

Can I get a resounding "Amen" for less time leaning in and mo time leaning back? Sign me up more more "masterful inactivity!" Genius article...a must read.

4 Powerful Ways to Use Content Marketing to Build Your Personal Brand

4 Powerful Ways to Use Content Marketing to Build Your Personal Brand | Life and Work | Scoop.it

You’ve probably read at least a handful of blog posts that talk about content marketing. If you spend a fair amount of time reading about online marketing, you’ve probably actually come across a few case studies about content marketing. While both blog post and case studies are useful sources of information about content marketing, they’re generally focused on how small and large businesses are utilizing this marketing technique.

 

What most sources of information about this topic don’t touch on is whether or not content marketing is a good fit for personal branding. The answer to that question is not only is it a good fit, but if you’re serious about building a strong personal brand, you definitely need to be engaged in content marketing. Let’s go over four different reasons why this strategy works so well:
