8 Ways to Kick-Start Your Workday

8 Ways to Kick-Start Your Workday | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

As November turns to December, it gets harder and harder to flip the switch from holiday festivities to emails and spreadsheets. Take it from me: I work from home as a freelane writer. While I love the flexibility and freedom of this arrangement, it can be challenging to get motivated without a team of colleagues and a conventional office environment to show up at every day, especially at this time of year.

 

But here’s what I’ve found to be one key to my success: a set, regular, step-by-step morning routine. Some parts of the routine are constructive, and others are more ritualistic, but I’ve discovered that my greatest times of productivity occur when I stick to this practice.

Agreed. Stretching is relaxing and loosens the muscles! Coffee wakes us up, having an organized work space helps us get more done, and managing our time properly makes us more efficient.

Gray Area: Do Ethics Still Have a Place in Business? | MGT 307 | Scoop.it
I’m a racing fan (OK, a sports fan in general) so I was following the race last Saturday night at Richmond International Speedway, which was the final race of the ‘regular season’ in NASCAR.

Teni Gharibian's insight:

I never would have guessed that sociopaths were so successful in business. I thought a peoples' person was the type to do the best in business especially since you are working with so many people; However, I can now see how a sociopath would do just as well if not better in the workplace. Since a sociopath is only focused on themselves, is charming and knows how to talk to people and has no remorse, I can see how they're so successful. They can talk others into nearly anything... And their self confidence helps tremendously. They have strong personalities and people may be intimidated by them.

The Simple Yet Effective Not-So Secret Strategy For Motivation

The Simple Yet Effective Not-So Secret Strategy For Motivation | MGT 307 | Scoop.it
Why do you feel unmotivated? You may be waiting for a wave of motivation to get started on your project.

Via Barb Jemmott
Teni Gharibian's insight:

Setting small goals for yourself may help motivate you more. Also, having a plan and writing it down also helps. It's always best to not put a tremendous amount of pressure on yourself from the beginning. Thinking about your goal and how happy you will be once you attain it will motivate and inspire you to work towards it.

Gosh, I've had so many people tell me they aren't motivated lately. I have times that I'm not either, but I just get up and do it and that great feeling comes later. "Since motivation will not zap you like electricity, try this instead." Read below for more.

Innovation, economics, and messy, complex truths | GigaOM Tech News

Innovation, economics, and messy, complex truths | GigaOM Tech News | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Andy Kessler, whose take on things I generally like, recently wrote a piece for The Wall Street Journal called, “Robots, 3-D Printers and Other Looming Innovations.”

 

In it he posed the question of whether the internet and other disruptive trends have destroyed more jobs than they’ve created. Could innovation actually be fueling the stubborn unemployment that has persisted in much of the country?

 

But Kessler was merely tossing some rhetorical “chum” into the waters to bait naysaying Luddites. Sure, people are hurting now, Kessler noted, and probably more jobs have been destroyed than created, but eventually things will more than even out, so suck it up!

 

Kessler then delivered his list of future job creating “game changers” with the certitude of a preacher sermonizing to his flock (it’s WSJ, after all).

 

But, Kessler’s truth ignores a messy paradox; namely, that while the innovations of tomorrow are most certainly worth working toward, that doesn’t obviate the parallel truth that the depth and duration of pain being experienced throughout much of the country is chronic, systemic, and arguably, must also be dealt with.

In today's era, new innovations and "robots" are causing more harm to workers than we think. The Machines built these days are designed to do the job of the worker. New technology is destroying jobs and I anticipate that it will only get worse as technology improves over time. It is possible that new jobs could be created in place of the jobs that were lost, but I feel it is not likely.

4 Problem-Solving Tactics Of Great Leaders

4 Problem-Solving Tactics Of Great Leaders | MGT 307 | Scoop.it

Great leaders are, at their core, great problem-solvers. They take proactive measures to avoid conflicts and address issues when they arise.

 

At businesses both large and small, the best leaders use four similar problem-solving tactics, writes Glenn Llopis, chairman of the leadership and business development company Glenn Llopis Group, in a recent post for Forbes. He says these strategies can go a long way toward deterring problems and resolving them peacefully when needed.

Great article for family owned businesses, and the "seven habits" are a necessity to all business owners.

This articles show ways to make you family owned business a successful one. In this case success is about learning.

J.J. Thomas's curator insight, July 31, 2014 7:24 PM

Family business has a completely different emotional dynamic that people often forget. Children and grandchildren can be used as leverage for getting your point across which is just bad business. The quote "the next generation stand on their shoulders, not in their shoes." is a great one!

Via NANCY PETERS
Teni Gharibian's insight:

I definitely agree that managers may ask employees to complete certain tasks and put a lot of pressure on them to do so. Sometimes they won't care how it is done as long as they are successful and manage to get it done. I also agree that employees will feel pressured to do a good job and make unethical decisions such as doing something illegal in order to get the job done.
