Is Your Past Holding Your Future Prisoner?

Is Your Past Holding Your Future Prisoner? | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it
Dani discusses how dwelling on regrets and past decisions can paralyze your future success
Amy Melendez's insight:

Have you ever said, “If only I knew then what I know now…”? I know I have.

If only I knew when I was 17 to 18 years old, what I know now, I would not have done what I did. But there’s nothing I can do now except to forgive myself and others, and to gain wisdom for the future.

I’m telling you this because I want you to understand that regrets do not have to bury you.

"LETTING GO" AND MINDFULNESS ARE KEY FACTORS NOWADAYS - Accomplish More by Doing Less

"LETTING GO" AND MINDFULNESS ARE KEY FACTORS NOWADAYS - Accomplish More by Doing Less | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it

The key in life is not to do more or work harder; the key is actually to find ways to do less and think more, to be less busy and more productive. 

Here some important principles:

1.) Reevaluate how you spend your time and stop doing the time-wasters.
We’ve all heard about the Pareto Principle, the 80/20 rule that 20 percent of your activity produces 80 percent of your income.

2.) Create and protect the boundaries of our digital world 
- Put a junk filter on your life
- Just say NO. 
- You get in life what you tolerate.

3.) Study more - Life is not about learning and knowledge, but about studying and transferring what suits to our own life. 

4.) Stay focused and show commitment to consistency.

5.) Life is not about time management, but about energy management.

6.) Learn to delegate effectively!

7.) Value the time you are "off"!

Lean Leadership: Listening & Humility

Lean Leadership: Listening & Humility | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it

The holiday season is my favorite time of year for two reasons: the holidays themselves and business planning. Proper business planning requires significant reflection, an activity that Lean Leaders embrace and do regularly and less effective leaders often skip.

While I continually reflect during the year, it’s more intentional and formalized in the last quarter. I spend significant chunks of time reflecting on what’s working and what’s not, what I want to do more of and less of, how I want to grow the business in terms of people and products, which services I want to discontinue offering, etc.  The result of all this reflecting is a hoshin plan (a work plan) for the coming year that provides clear direction about the target conditions we aim to achieve and the work priorities for achieving them. (You can use hoshin planning to achieve personal goals as well; I wrote about this earlier this year.)

 

While much has been written about the technical aspects of hoshin planning (also called strategy deployment), there are two key success factors that haven’t captured as much air time: listening and humility. It’s difficult to create an effective plan that gets you from Point A to Point B if you fail to listen deeply or operate with a hubris-filled heart and mind.

Leadership: If you want more – give more

Leadership: If you want more  – give more | Communication & Leadership | Scoop.it

How can leadership be about giving more to get more?  Early in my career I had two questions about this when my mentors shared this philosophy with me.

 

Leaders, if you want more  - give more.  It’s just like Bob Burg said in his book, The Go-Giver,“Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.”

This article rings true to me.  Build others up to take your place and in truth, you have built yourself up more as a leader.  Zig Ziglar says, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want” 

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, December 30, 2013 1:36 PM

The difference between selfless and selfish is a couple of letters...yet the difference between a selfless and selfish person is worlds apart.  "Then I heard the great Zig Ziglar say, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want” "

Excellent Scoop Kevin!  It is especially good to see how the author has clarified what authentic leadership requires.  

 

From the post:

 

Leadership AuthenticityServant Leadership authenticity can only be maintained and emulated by adhering to the highest possible standards of moral and physical courage.Where do you stand in your leadership courage? Do you stand as a rampart against unethical and immoral behaviors by employees? Are you an authentic Servant Leader?
Don Cloud's curator insight, December 21, 2013 7:27 PM

Morale courage distinguishes leaders from everyone else.

 

Do you have the morale courage and conviction to lead?
