The Art of Stillness

The Art of Stillness | Success | Scoop.it

The place that travel writer Pico Iyer would most like to go? Nowhere. In a counterintuitive and lyrical meditation, Iyer takes a look at the incredible insight that comes with taking time for stillness. In our world of constant movement and distraction, he teases out strategies we all can use to take back a few minutes out of every day, or a few days out of every season. It’s the talk for anyone who feels overwhelmed by the demands for our world.

(From the article): Optimists Have Happier 9 to 5s

People who see a glass that's half full tend to rate their jobs as more satisfying than those who don't. A study from Kuwait University found that people who were the most optimistic were also happiest in their jobs and had the fewest work complaints; the opposite was true for pessimists.

5 Habits Of People Who Always Get What They Want

5 Habits Of People Who Always Get What They Want | Success | Scoop.it

You’ve been offered a job but the salary wasn’t the number you were hoping to hear. Or you’ve received a bid on a project and it’s under what you think it’s worth. Instead of accepting the deal in disappointment or firing back with another amount, sports agent Molly Fletcher says it’s time to start a conversation.

 

Unfortunately, most of the world doesn’t ask for what it wants. A recent survey by Salary.com found that just 44% of people negotiate for a better salary.

 

And companies are happy when you don’t negotiate, says Fletcher: “Few offer their best price out of the gate,” she says.

Inside the Mind of the Entrepreneur

Inside the Mind of the Entrepreneur | Success | Scoop.it

Feldman is a "creative thinker," one of the key entrepreneurial strengths identified by significant new research into entrepreneurship. Over five years, Gallup, the global research and consulting firm, studied more than 4,000 founders to understand the talents that foster business creation and growth, and determined the 10 most significant. The organization then created an online assessment tool to measure those talents in individuals. The tool is the latest iteration of Gallup's very popular StrengthsFinder methodology, introduced by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton in their 2001 best-selling book, Now, Discover Your Strengths.

Why we're getting smarter

Why we're getting smarter | Success | Scoop.it

It's called the "Flynn effect" -- the fact that each generation scores higher on an IQ test than the generation before it. Are we actually getting smarter, or just thinking differently? In this fast-paced spin through the cognitive history of the 20th century, moral philosopher James Flynn suggests that changes in the way we think have had surprising (and not always positive) consequences.
