WHERE GOOD IDEAS COME FROM by Steven Johnson

One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from? With Where Good Ideas Co...
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

Are you confident enough to embrace collaboration? Sometimes we hoard our ideas and keep them to ourselves. Is this because we fear that someone else will take our idea and get rich from it, denying us our opportunity? Venture Capitalists believe that ideas are a dime-a-dozen, and that success lies in the execution. If that is the case, we should be sharing our ideas with everyone that can help us bring them to fruition. Find people who can help us hone our ideas...and more importantly, take action to transform them into a reality.

Why You Need To Unplug Every 90 Minutes

Why You Need To Unplug Every 90 Minutes | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
You're an organism. And organisms run in cycles. Here's how to work with yours.
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

Music is an excellent facilitator to induce work/rest periods. By listening to certain types of music, whose frequencies sync with the brain activity frequency, we can leverage associative conditioning to speed up our Mind's ability to shift gears.

Caroline Myss "Soul Service"

Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

The Highest Ideal is to Serve. But are you strong enough to serve others? Often times, we allow ourselves to limit the service we provide to others out of fear. Fear of subordination. Fear of inferiority. Fear of giving up opportunities to serve our Self. Yet each of these fears are misguided. For even when one lifts up another, they are not themselves pushed down. Rather they have elevated another being, and as a result will have another hand being offered to pull them up in return. This is true Service to the One, to Another, and to the Self - all at once!

The neuroscience of leadership: Are you causing people pain?

The neuroscience of leadership: Are you causing people pain? | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
Leadership expert Jennifer Miller discusses the neuroscience behind "social pain" and how people can better attune themselves to avoid causing it.
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

I have heard clients say that the emotional abuse was just as painful as the physical abuse. This article points to some research that supports that. However it speaks to how leaders address the mistakes of their subordinates.

Learning to Learn: leveraging your circadian rhythm

Learning to Learn: leveraging your circadian rhythm | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
There are a few distinct, precious moments of heightened sensory elation that we can achieve through unique actions; whether that be hitting the sweet spot on your driver from the tee box, tossing that crumpled up piece of paper that started out as...
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

This is a great article on how to maximize our productivity by understanding our circadian rhythm. I particularly appreciated her advice on tracking it so that we can understand our rhythm.

 

When I presented similar information to a group of Co-Masons, they noted that our circadian rhythm shifts throughout the year. Perhaps it would be a good idea to track our circadian rhythm a couple times throughout the year. Eventually, once we become in sync with our rhythms, we will be able to feel when we are acting in conflict with them.

 

Know thyself.

 

To thine own self, be true.

Monday Morning Mojo: No Old Farts Allowed | Intero Mojo

Monday Morning Mojo: No Old Farts Allowed | Intero Mojo | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
Are you flexible and do you embrace change or are your rigid, brittle and allergic to it?
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

This article about flexibility is from one of my regular reads "Monday Morning Mojo."  We know the importance of remaining flexible, and many of us recognize that it is something that we struggle with. It seems to me that flexibility can only be achieved once one has the confidence to take on new challenges and overcome the unexpected. When people are trapped in fear (of loss, failure, or success), they often do not embrace flexibility. This is very unfortunate. Especially considering that confidence can be programmed into our subconsciousness through programs such as "Exude Confidence."

How to Give a Killer Presentation

How to Give a Killer Presentation | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
Business management magazine, blogs, case studies, articles, books, and webinars from Harvard Business Review, addressing today's topics and challenges in business management.
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

For those of us who give live presentations, this article gives great advice. It points out the need for compelling material. TED talks has discovered that presentation gimmicks are not nearly as important as an engaging topic. I believe that while a visually intriguing presentation is nice, the visuals must enhance, not detract from the central story.

3 Tips to Shake off a Bad Mood

3 Tips to Shake off a Bad Mood | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
Each new day brings a rainbow of emotions. With the good also comes the bad. Some days, we can be caught in a gloomy funk with no clear way out. Having a bad mood isn’t the issue. It’s how we handle it that is.
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

This is a short list of gloom busting tips is a good read. I particularly appreciated what they said about having an alarm go off throughout the day to trigger an affirmation. I would take it a step further and recommend that when the alarm goes off, one should recite a series of affirmations which are linked together in their logic flow. For example:

 

1) When I hear my alarm, I feel motivated immediately.

2) When I feel motivated, I visualize my goals briefly.

3) When I visualize my goals, I take action to achieve my goals.

4) When I take action to achieve my goals, I feel happiness spread through me.

5) When I feel happy, I feel motivated.

 

Once your mind starts going into this pattern, it will repeat it over and over, creating an uplifting emotional spiral. Computer programmers would recognize this as an infinite loop. And we already have many of these loops already programmed in our minds, but we don't recognize them because they tend to be longer and more complicated. However, we have all heard of the term "downward spiral."

 

What Infinite Loop would you program into your mindset?

Dan Pallotta: The way we think about charity is dead wrong

Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

As a consultant who often focuses on top-line growth, I found Dan's TedTalk about Non-Profit Organizations to be fascinating. While I have experienced many companies who have a strong reluctance to invest in business growth. However, their reluctance pales in comparison to the viceral reaction that the American public has towards Non-Profits who invest in growth. If we want the Non-Profit Sector to truly be able to make the profound societal impacts that we desire, we must remove our overhead restrictions.

 

Which of Dan's five points did you think are most profoundly repressing the Non-Profit Sector?

How to be Happy in Life - Inspir3

How to be Happy in Life - Inspir3 | Mindful Measures | Scoop.it
Learn what might be holding you back from having the type of happy life you've always dreamed of and how to begin to be happier.

Via Tracy Morrow
Joshua Fradenburg's insight:

This blog article spoke briefly about the "fear" of allowing oneself to be happy. But what about people who do not feel that they CAN be happy?  For some people, what is needed is a new set of neuropathways that reprogram one's thoughts to seek, observe, embrace, and share happiness.

 

That is where programs like our "Live in Joy" can reshape the structures in your brain. We call it Mindset Engineering, and the best part is that you can do it anywhere, anytime. You don't even need to meditate or set time aside from your daily activities. Our clients have found that the ability to  use the "Live in Joy" program  while driving through town, or getting ready in the morning, makes it a perfect solution for the person-on-the-go! Check out our programs on our website (www.mindful-measures.com) and begin your journey to happiness today!
