The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

It's pretty hard to pursue something you aren't sure about. If you can't seem to find something you'd love doing, you're not alone. Many of us struggle with what our own ideas of what a "dream job" would be. If you feel a little like you're just floating along the river of life, it might be a good idea to grab a paddle and start exploring uncharted waters. Take a step out of your comfort zone and experience new things. When you're stuck in your bubble, you're afraid of being uncomfortable. Branch out and see what's out there. Eventually you'll encounter something that gets you excited.

What do you get when you cross your grandmother’s advice with the latest research in neuroscience?

 

According to Eric J. McNulty, this unlikely intersection holds the key to being a good leader. As the director of research at the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, McNulty is often asked to recommend the latest and greatest reads on leadership. What he’s discovered is that books on brain science serve up sage insights more often than the traditional title penned from the corner office. He’s also observed that scientific research on the brain reveals what his grandma knew all along.

Sometimes we just try to over-think issues.  Give your brain a rest and more often than not a clear decision will emerge.

I always new the essence of effective leadership could be found in the wisdom of my Grandmother's advice.

 

Peg Wright's curator insight, January 26, 2014 11:04 AM

Effective leadership is a combination of common sense, patience and emotional iq. Similar to things you learn in kindergarten. My favorite McNulty thought is the one on Let me sit with that for a bit. Just because you aren’t doing something, it doesn’t mean that your brain isn’t working.
