Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, August 18, 1:29 AM

One of life’s greatest gifts is the fact that life is difficult.  Because in dealing with life’s difficulties, we build invaluable strength.  This strength enables us to successfully fulfill our deepest, most meaningful purposes.  It is precisely because life is difficult that we are able to make it great.  It is because life is difficult that we are able to rise above the difficulties.  We are able to make a difference and we are able to truly matter.

Marianne Cloeren's curator insight, August 5, 5:22 AM

This line caught my interest - is there a way to communicate this to injured employees who are getting stuck in disability thinking? "With persistence, you can communicate two critical lessons: you have talent burning inside you, and you can bring it out if you are willing to put in sufficient effort."  How do we help patients see the way out of bad situations, especially when it seems the systems conspire to keep them stuck?

The Odd Work-Break Ratio That's Great For Productivity

The Odd Work-Break Ratio That's Great For Productivity | Life @ Work | Scoop.it

Lisa McCarthy's curator insight, August 5, 1:54 AM

A person can't be 100% productive all day. As much as you want to make the most of every minute, to get stuff done, to hustle, it's just not humanly possible. Concentration is like a muscle: It needs to rest to be able to function, and it shouldn't be overworked. Otherwise it'll simply burn out and take longer to get back into the swing of things.

Lore Ochoa's curator insight, August 6, 6:37 PM

We all feel like failures from time to time. While this is a normal feeling, you have to find a way to see yourself and your life from a different perspective. Sometimes we ignore the “little things.” Just because you are not a millionaire, don’t live in a mansion, and you don’t drive a fancy car, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. In fact, it’s quite the contrary.
