Slowing the work treadmill

Slowing the work treadmill | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it
Harvard Business School Professor Teresa Amabile compares much of work life to running on a treadmill.
susanna oreskovic's insight:

If you've been working for a while you may feel like you are on a treadmill, and one that will not stop for say about 30 years. Eek, this was my realization as I proudly walked into my new big office job. What I've learned along the way is that being the best at your job or having the best team working with you is more about having that mental space than it is about pushing yourself or your team to do more and more, faster and faster. Having a common purpose, buying into the task, having meaningfulness, with time for reflection or incubation of ideas will spare you from becoming frazzled and burnt out and gaurantee you your people will not be just punching the clock putting in face time.

susanna oreskovic's insight:

If you were a colour? Whether it's for your business brand or your own personal brand, choose which colour that best represents you. Just like body language speaks volumes over words so does the visuals and colour speak volumes over the text on your website, publication or other media. So what colour are you?

Jane Hart from the Center for Learning & Performance Technology in the UK compiled this comprehensive  list of digital learning tools using the input
susanna oreskovic's insight:

Are you part of the new "creative age" where learning is networked, interactive and self-directed. Of the list of the top 100 learning tools how many do you use and know of; 50, 30, 10? Being familiar with at least a third of the tools on the list you can count yourself as engaged with the information technology. Now what will you do with it? Information is just data and it needs a human and their creative mind to turn it into something of value, something that makes sense of our world and shows us the relationships between things. We live in a relative world and we experience our world physically.

Think about that. How can you contribute in this creative age?

Overthinking and Your Child-Like Mind | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it

Creativity comes naturally to children. We begin to lose it as we start to learn and knowledge becomes our reference point. We think without seeing, without being open to other ways of thinking. Without overthinking how would you solve the ques­tion in the image above. Give it a try.

The Deepest Source of Motivation

The Deepest Source of Motivation | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it
Forget the carrot and stick. Motivation and innovation come from a desire to help.
susanna oreskovic's insight:

Ask yourself the question WHY. Why are you doing your job? why are you putting in the hours? Why are you doing what you do? Answer that and you have the core motivators, your true value that will lead you to your happiness and life satisfaction. The "why" is the motivation. Leaders who know this will have more engaged people. If you know your "why" you will be happier and more successful. It's not what motivates you but why do you do it that is the source of motivation. Ask why.

Having Ideas Versus Having a Vision

Having Ideas Versus Having a Vision | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it
In the past decade, firms have been praised for ideas. Experts have celebrated the power of brainstorming and idea-generation techniques. Eureka light bulbs have populated the covers of many books.

Via Ken Cooper
susanna oreskovic's insight:

What the world needs is ideas in action. What are the qualities, traits, behaviours of visionary leaders? How do we cultivate these much needed leaders who are able to take these ideas generated in the divergent thinking stage and converge them into a vision and that can inspire their people to move forward and take action. Then only can we see the full spectrum of creativity working. Do you know someone who is a visionary leader? What makes them so?

The Power of Imagination

The Power of Imagination | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it
Jay Walker, founder of Priceline and curator of TEDMED, on the fuel that drives innovation.
susanna oreskovic's insight:

What causes companies to be cautious, to endlessly do reviews, get approvals or wait for test market results? It's what makes change so slow. People want to be right, to know it will work, they want certainty of a good outcome for their effort. This however, dulls experimentation, it creates conformity and does not allow people to safely express their creativity and imagination. Without imagination there can not be any innovation, or new and better way of doing things.

 

A look into history can provide an amusing perspective. We accept that official records exist and a person must have a death certificate to be considered dead. This process has nothing to do with the actual fact that someone is dead. Because the King was tired of hearing people were dead from the plague and could not pay their taxes, the brilliant idea came about to issue death certificates.

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use?

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use? | Society, Life and Creativity | Scoop.it

Deanna Dahlsad designed this simple decision-tree to help differentiate between different Content Curation platforms and which one you should use as a business user.

 

I found this interesting as it's one of the first ones I see that made this obvious and simple differentiation between the different platforms out there. I'm not sure I would describe Scoop.it as article-based (we obviously have large pictures, infographics, videos or SlideShare presentations that are not articles) but I can see where she's coming from and her intention: if the content you curate is not 100% image, "image-based eye-candy" is not enough.

Thank you for scooping my article and decision tree! Most content curation sites do offer images, as I noted; but there are distinct differences between image-based sites like Pinterest & sites like Scoop.It especially in terms of users.
Chris Lott UAF's comment, October 5, 2012 10:31 AM
The decision tree here represents our decisions on what curation technology to use as an educational organization. It's a great starting point for discussion.
Guillaume Decugis's comment, October 9, 2012 6:53 PM
Hi Deanna - Yes, I found it was a great one. By the way, I was thinking of using it in a future presentation. Would you be ok with that? I'd of course include the reference to your site that's on the original picture. Let me know. Thanks!
