Should We Be Optimistic?

Should We Be Optimistic? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Being overly optimistic in life puts us at risk. In addition, people who show cheerful, optimistic personality traits during childhood, have a shorter life expectancy than their more serious counter parts. On the other hand, optimists are more psychologically resilient, have stronger immune systems, and live longer on average than more reality-based opposites. So who’s better off in life; the optimist or the pessimist? And who’s reality comes closest to the truth?

Getting Through The Leadership Blahs - Joseph Lalonde

Getting Through The Leadership Blahs - Joseph Lalonde | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Whatever causes the leadership blahs, they’re depressing times. You may even think of packing your bags and leaving your position of leadership.

 

At that point, you know it’s the blahs…

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): Remember it’s not about you – The previous ways to battle the leadership doldrums may seem to center on YOU. It’s YOUR reason for leading. It’s YOUR wins that you’ve made.

 

But, the honest truth, it’s not about you. Even when the ways to battle the leadership depression seem to be.

 

The real way to continue to fight is to remember leadership isn’t about you. It’s about THEM. The ones you’re leading.

 

Your team, your students, your family… They’re really the reason you should continue to fight for your leadership.

 

People are looking to you. They desire to be led by someone who is willing to go forward.

 

The real battle is fought for others, not yourself.

Does Self-Compassion Mean Letting Yourself Off the Hook?

Does Self-Compassion Mean Letting Yourself Off the Hook? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Self-compassion means that we understand the myriad causes and conditions that lead us to act as we do. Compassion is wise and sees through the illusion that we have total control over our actions. Compassion acknowledges the truth that we are limited, imperfect beings who are impacted by things over which we have no control -- our genes, early family history, culture, life circumstances.

 

That's why self-compassion is understanding and accepting rather than punitive and rebuking. At the same time, compassion is intrinsically concerned with the alleviation of suffering -- our own and that of others.
