7 Seriously Hardcore Project Management Apps

7 Seriously Hardcore Project Management Apps | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it


Running your own business can be hard — there’s time-tracking, invoicing, and contacts to keep track of, plus knowing what your entire team is doing (especially important if you manage a team remotely). If you’re trying to use a different solution for each one of these problems, things can easily get overwhelming (and the bill can get high!). These apps can help you stay on top of it all at once, in one spot.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

When you need to handle all the different aspects of running a business or department  (time tracking, invoicing, and project management), try one of these apps.

If You Can Do This One Simple Thing You’ll Succeed

If You Can Do This One Simple Thing You’ll Succeed | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be great if there was a simple test you could take (or give to your kids) to determine your chances of success? Well, there is. The only problem is it's really, really, really boring. It's called Coding Speed Test and it has absolutely nothing to do with your ability to code. The US government gives it as part of the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) test.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

It's not necessarily the smartest who succeed but the people who are willing to keep trying. If this isn't something that comes naturally to you, you can change that.

How Backsliding Might Actually Help You Keep Habit Changes

How Backsliding Might Actually Help You Keep Habit Changes | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

A funny thing happens every year around this time. People who made New Year’s resolutions to exercise—and who did so diligently for a couple of months—encounter some hiccup in the routine. They get injured. They get the flu. Work goes into a crunch time. These are all reasonable excuses, but when the storm passes, the habit is gone.

So, given that some breaks in routine are inevitable, what can be done?

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

When your new habit falls by the wayside, you can use that pause to reassess what you really want.

12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate

12 Things That Successful Leaders Never Tolerate | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

By and large, tolerance is a good trait. The differences we encounter enrich our lives and organizations. But to attain a successful life and meaningful leadership, we must refuse to tolerate the things that deplete, and ultimately destroy, us.

Start by declaring these things intolerable in yourself and those around you - and see what changes as a result.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Tolerance is a virtue--most of the time. But some things should never be tolerated. To build a successful career and life as a leader, make sure these are never on your list

Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Here's How to Know for Sure

Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Here's How to Know for Sure | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70 percent of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption that IQ was the sole source of success.


Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90 percent of top performers have high emotional intelligence.


Emotional intelligence is the "something" in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Emotional intelligence is a huge driver of success.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 26, 3:32 AM

An interesting article indeed, that tells us a lot about the importance of emotional intelligence (E.Q.). It is clear that a very high I.Q. devoid of the ability and skills requred to live in a world built out of a social fabric of relations does not indicate success! Taken in a social context, I.Q. + E.Q. = Success! And moreover, there is a mathematical logic to the same.

Lots in the article to be aware of, notice and practice...

Maggie Lawlor's curator insight, March 27, 7:27 PM

Worth reflecting on some of the influences in your life to make them more conscious.  For example, a leader I worked for was really good at showing appreciation for my work, and so I worked much harder and longer for her. It taught me to give appreciation to others for their effort as well as the results, and to ensure I had people around me who continue to motivate me in that way.
