Seth Godin argues the Internet has ended mass marketing and revived a human social unit from the distant past: tribes. Founded on shared ideas and values, tribes give ordinary people the power to lead and make big change.
Dani shares how you can control your happiness at work!
Have you ever been dissatisfied at work? Have you ever awakened in the morning and thought, "I don’t want to go to work today! It’s so boring. I hate my boss. I can’t wait to get another job so I can finally quit this one!"
Amy Melendez's insight:
About 11 years ago I was miserable in what I saw as a dead end job. I was fortunate to find a very small ad in one of the newsletters that I followed that simply affirmed "You can do work you love". It totally rocked my thinking. Was it possible? How? I followed the ad to Dan Miller's 48days.com and purchased his Ultimate package. I read all of the materials and listened to everything Dan said, over and over again. I completed my workbook as I continued working at my much hated job. Before I even realized it, my dead end job into a purpose. My relationship with the owners blossomed into a friendship and I was able to help them as they transitioned and changed their company culture. Later I was able to turn my dead end job into a work from home situation and eventually we were able to end our relationship on great terms.
I am proof positive that changing your thinking can change your situation.
From the article: "So today, instead of having the attitude of, "I hate my job. I don’t want to go to work today," focus on changing your work environment. (Remember, your environment starts in your mind.) Don’t think of it as a job. You are a partner in the company. This is your work, not just a job. You are contributing to the company."
From the post: "At the end of the day it becomes a matter of what we choose to do to improve ourselves and then how we transfer that knowledge to encourage others to do the same. Fortune 500 or employee non-profit organization it makes no difference. Are we willing to do something that helps solve whatever opportunities are in front of us? The world certainly could use more transformational and servant leaders who put the greater good of humanity and community over self gratification and greed."

Not long ago I was signing books after speaking to a large crowd at a convention center. Whenever I speak, I try to make myself available to sign books, shake hands, and chat with people. This particular day the line was long, and I was signing as quickly as I could to try to get to everyone waiting.
A lady stepped up and handed me a book to sign, and she said, “For the last eight years I have been reading your books and listening to your teaching. You have given to me a wonderful gift, and I am grateful.”
I stopped writing and for a moment I wondered what that gift might be. Was it the simplicity of my teaching? Practicality? Humor? I was curious, so I asked, “What is the wonderful gift I have given you?”
“Hope.” She continued, “Whenever I read your books or listen to you, I leave with hope. Thank you.”
Curation is a growing need in organizations, and as such, a growing competency for those focused on worker performance. At the same time, the vision of what this competency looks like in practice is cloudy. How will what we do look different when we add curation to our skill sets?
What all those definitions of resilience have in common is the idea of a positive response to failure or adversity. Grit is related because part of what it means to be gritty is to be resilient in the face of failure or adversity. But that's not the only trait you need to be gritty.
