Marie-Brigitte Souci's curator insight, March 3, 5:44 PM

It seems the more educated we become the harder it is to hold good relationships and it should not be this way. A relationship should be simple, you talk to me and I talk to you, sincerely it is that simple, maybe too simple for some.

 

We have complicated our ways with endless formulas for every aspect of life. Stop trying to lord over and control people, no one owns anyone, simply appreciate people and respect their boundaries, people do not need to like the sport you engage into nor the places you attend, simply converse without ulterior motives, sarcasm, do not unleash an avalanche of advices if not requested.


Just tell me about you, what you do, your business, the groups you belong to, what you like and dislike, you can take a whole hour to tell me about you and more, but after telling me all of this about you there should NOT be any expectation that I will do what you do nor engage in your activities  and your beliefs, and this does not mean that we cannot be friends, we can meet once in a while to catch up. It is that simple, is this too hard for some to maintain?


This is the biggest key for good relationships >>> DO NOT FORCE PEOPLE TO BECOME LIKE YOU. Control is taboo in any and every relationship, don't people know this?


The reason why relationships fail is a lack of respect, many do not have a choice but to walk or breakaway from individuals and groups.


It is very sad that the most technologically savvy and most civilised and educated generation has so many relationship issues. I hope it changes.

John Michel's curator insight, March 8, 9:30 PM

As frustrating as it can be to have people do something different from what you tell them, it can have an even bigger negative effect on your ability to lead. As people realize that what you tell them is not a good predictor of what they really ought to be doing, they stop listening. Then, you have to put in a lot of effort to reestablish trust.

Understanding Complexity - IT's not that simple!

Understanding Complexity - IT's not that simple! | Strategic management | Scoop.it
People like to say, “keep it simple, stupid.” It's a down-home remedy for our overly complex, technology infused modern life. Like much good advice, it is often given, but rarely followed. The problem is that simplicity is not so simple. We live in a complex universe where much that happens is beyond our control. Merely wishing things to be simpler does not make it so. In fact, making facile assumptions often leads to disaster ...

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | Strategic management | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.
