Daniel Watson's curator insight, September 24, 2013 6:12 PM

 

In the life of most businesses, the business itself will hit the proverbial wall, and the business owner will need to refocus their business to regain momentum and become more productive.

 

The major factor that creates the need to refocus any business, is simply the reality that over time the original vision for the business becomes somewhat cloudy, and the complexity that arises as a business grows often means that the business is forced to move away somewhat from its original path.

 

This excellent article, suggests that business owners need to define a renewed clear vision for their business to be able to move forward in a productive way, and it offers eight questions that a business owner needs to ask themselves in order to create a new future.

Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success

Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success | Success | Scoop.it

Failure is how we learn. The problem is, argues Megan McArdle, we’re forgetting that truth. We are becoming too risk-averse and that is bad for our children, for our personal lives, for our companies, and for our country.

 

While we tend to treat success as finite and failure as disaster, the reality is that in order to be successful, we must learn how to harness the power of failure. In The Up Side Down, McArdle explains why.

Young Spirits's curator insight, April 9, 4:06 PM

What's the key to success? Greg McKeown, a talented young author from the San Francisco Bay Area, argues that it's merely a matter of mind state. The most successful people are those who are absurdly selective and who focus on what they can do better, regardless of what the outside world thinks or does. McKeown chooses the term 'essentialism' to describe this attitude to life – and he even wrote a book about the subject: http://tinyurl.com/nrq77u4.

Practice Not As Important As Thought For Success

Practice Not As Important As Thought For Success | Success | Scoop.it

A new study shows that the "10,000 hour rule" might be a lot less important than previously touted. 
In 1993, K. Anders Ericsson and his colleagues published a paper suggesting that practicing for 10,000 hours was how many people made it to the top of their fields. The paper, which looked at elite violinists at the Music Academy of West Berlin, was popularized by Malcolm Gladwell’s 2008 book “Outliers.” Gladwell again harped on the concept in a2013 New Yorker piece. Gladwell’s emphatic kicker stated, “In cognitively demanding fields, there are no naturals.”

 

A new study may give Gladwell pause. According to Popular Science, a scientific study published in the journal Intelligence states, ”we have empirical evidence that deliberate practice, while important, is not as important as Ericsson has argued it is — evidence that it does not largely account for individual differences in performance.”

Mindset: It's Really a Lot More Than a Head Game | Success | Scoop.it

Legions of writers - from Dale Carnegie to Napoleon Hill to Norman Vincent Peale to Anthony Robbins - have touted the value of positive mental attitude. Scores of rah-rah speakers evangelize on the doctrine of believing in ourselves.


All of that is important. But sound thinking requires more than a rosy outlook and a dose of self-esteem. Sound thinking requires a mindset - or orientation - that’s both receptive to fresh (even contrary) ideas and accepting of the notion that most of us can be more creative than we’ve ever dreamed.

(From the article): Happiness is a loaded word in our culture, and in our workplace cultures. It’s important to keep in mind that we all have our own personal definition of happiness. But I firmly believe that a fulfilling career is a direct result of doing work that matters – that engages us mind, heart, and soul. Leaders can’t force employees into the zone, but they can certainly facilitate and nurture the process and make this more of a reality by making decisions that keep this in mind. And for employees – it’s a satisfying challenge if you decide to make it matter.

From the article: Life is fast, time flies and nobody’s going to wait or take pity on you because you stayed behind, absorbed with distractions and useless clutter. If you’re not careful, they will ruin your life before you know it. There are hundreds of decoys jumping in the front seat of your life and, collectively, they will take over the steering wheel if you allow them. They always promise extraordinary results and outstanding effects but what they really do is keep you from doing important things and achieving your big goals. You have no choice but to remove them if you have dreams and aspirations to attain.

 

There are several areas of life where these distractions can be managed and eliminated.
