"In this video Viktor Frankl talks about the importance of being an idealist, or what he called the real realist. As he shared, "If we take a man as he is, we make him worse, but if we take man as he should be we make him capable of becoming what he can be."
Empathy, cooperation, fairness and reciprocity -- caring about the well-being of others seems like a very human trait. But Frans de Waal shares some surprising videos of behavioral tests, on primates and other mammals, that show how many of these moral traits all of us share. (Filmed at TEDxPeachtree.)
This post is about the third book in the Tim Ferriss Book Club, which is limited to books that have dramatically impacted my life. Enjoy! "I strongly
While there is much we still do not know about our brains, we do know that the status quo is not an option. It is leaving us woefully unprepared to meet current and future demands.
"Renowned psychologist and emotion-guru Paul Ekman describes how introducing conscious awareness to facial expressions can help one override and control their emotions."
"Demand is relentlessly rising. Our capacity is not keeping pace. The traditional solution to higher demand has been to invest more time. Unfortunately, time is finite, and most of us have no hours left to invest. Energy, however, can be systematically expanded --- and it can also be regularly renewed. To operate at our best, we need four energy sources: physical (quantity), emotional (quality), mental (focus), and the energy of the human spirit (purpose). This talk will focus on the role of energy in fueling sustainable high performance, and in motivating others."

Josh Kaufman is the author of the #1 international bestseller, 'The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business', as well as the upcoming book 'The First 20 Hours: Mastering the Toughest Part of Learning Anything.' Josh specializes in teaching people from all walks of life how to master practical knowledge and skills. In his talk, he shares how having his first child inspired him to approach learning in a whole new way.
"What defines humans: self-interest, self-focus, empathy or compassion? While "exogenous" sciences like economy and sociology failed to give by themselves an exhaustive definition of human nature, producing partial concepts like the "homo economicus", the answer might come from an "inside-out" approach."
"Character. We want it in our leaders, we seek it in our spouses and friends, we try to teach it to our children. The prevailing view is that it comes from hard work and due diligence. It's cultivated; it's stable. But if character is so stable, then why do we so often disagree over who's got it and who doesn't? Professor David DeSteno shows how science has turned prevailing wisdom upside down by revealing that character, vice, and virtue are predominantly shaped by forces outside of our awareness."
"His books The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest and Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way appeared on many best seller lists and were both featured on Oprah and other US and international media.Dan Buettner's colossal research effort on happiness found four locations around the world ("Blue Zones") with the highest reported well‐being. In the societies he visits, it's no coincidence that the way people interact with each other, shed stress, nourish their bodies, and view their world yields more happiness and good years of life.Utilizing this data, Dan ultimately founded a company that puts the world's best practices in longevity and well-being to work in people's lives. In 2009, he partnered with AARP to apply the principles of The Blue Zones to Albert Lea, Minnesota and successfully raised life expectancy and lowered health care costs by some 40%. Writing in Newsweek, Harvard University's Walter Willet called the results "stunning.""

Cities of Knowledge: Why We Learn Faster in Cities Than We Could On Our Own.
According to a Stanford psychologist, you’ll reach new heights if you learn to embrace the occasional tumble.
As we've often said "It is not failure it is rapid prototyping" of your innovation process. With a 98% failure rate in corporate innovation programs sometimes you'll need to make a mistake to make it better. But to avoid the trial and error approach and minimize these failures get a professional innovation manager to help you navigate the development of the process. The S+IG is one such group (www.sig-hq.com)
"Effective leaders don’t buy into or try to suppress their inner experiences. Instead they approach them in a mindful, values-driven, and productive way—developing what we call emotional agility. In our complex, fast-changing knowledge economy, this ability to manage one’s thoughts and feelings is essential to business success. Numerous studies, from the University of London professor Frank Bond and others, show that emotional agility can help people alleviate stress, reduce errors, become more innovative, and improve job performance."

Daniel Goleman is raising the ante with his new book on "Focus." He says, "the game has changed so much that we have to get conscious and intentional about something we took for granted" -- i.e. our ability to attend and focus.
Technology is invading our ability to attend at an alarming rate . We need to develop tools to help us raise our awareness of what is going on in our mind and know how to bring it back.
Turn off Facebook, Twitter, in fact turn off the computer for a day. No cell phone. If this makes you anxious, then it may be time to get some help in learning how to regain control of your mind.
Most of the women I know feel pulled in so many directions. Our culture - listen to me, right now, I want it now, I want you to do it now - promotes us being on the go all the time and feeling guilty when we aren't. I believe it's time to settle in and shut down on a regular basis - to know what's happening within ourselves and to come out fresher with a new lease on life.
