Today, Just Be Average

Today, Just Be Average | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
Your perfectionism is blocking your progress.
David Phillips's insight:

The word “perfect” has a Latin root; literally, it means “made well” or “done thoroughly.” Another translation would be “complete.” And yet today, we use it to mean flawless. If you must pursue perfection, at least use the former definition rather than the (unattainable) latter.

Four Major Changes in Global Prosperity

Four Major Changes in Global Prosperity | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
The sands are shifting when it comes to countries’ success beyond GDP.
David Phillips's insight:

Global Prosperity is Rising. Despite the tumultuous events of the last five years, global prosperity is actually still on the rise. This is driven by big technological advancements, as more and more people gain access to infrastructure vital for commerce and entrepreneurship to thrive. Also driving global prosperity are huge advancements in global health (especially across sub-Saharan Africa). For example, life expectancy in sub-Saharan Africa has risen by more than three years just since 2010.

David Phillips's insight:

Good Stuff Todd! // My cynic friends find ammunition with which they shoot down the ideas of God’s existence. My skeptic friends take such an event to affirm their conviction that there is no Other. Interestingly my friend, who often fits both categories in varying degrees, takes up the activities that betray cynicism and skepticism. He contacts his network of friends, he holds out the promise of something better, he encourages hopefully. In short, he does not stop to see who else may be coming. His action becomes a prayer of sorts, an impious one to be sure.

Why the leadership movement is leaving your church leaderless | Mike Breen | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
David Phillips's insight:

Christian leadership is about listening for vision from God within community and then being given the authority and power to execute that vision — to take new Kingdom ground. That’s the birthright of every Christian…to hear the voice of their Father. But in the way we do leadership, suddenly it’s like we are pre-Reformation where only the select and the elite who are given this privilege. And let’s be clear: Our ego has a lot to do with this.

Albert Einstein, Warren Buffet, And Bill Gates Have All Loved Downtime--Do You? | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
If you don't have pockets of space in your day you're risking being a less insightful less ethical and less developed person.
David Phillips's insight:

...rest--and its counterintuitively productive effects--isn't all about naps, but turning down the devices and creating some constructive downtime in your day.

 

We have an intuitive sense that always being on isn't the best thing for us or our work: Albert Einstein was a master of leaving space in his day, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weinermakes sure his schedule has empty spaces, and both Warren Buffet and Bill Gates know to protect their time.

Discovering Frameworks

Discovering Frameworks | Systems Leadership | Scoop.it
As you benchmark your businesses and search for inspiration, look beyond your direct competition into what is happening in other industries. Looking past what is directly in front of you is often
David Phillips's insight:

Far too often, people are unwilling to see how frameworks can be transferred. They assume that because something has not yet happened in any given industry, that it never will, that it never could. As a boy I lived in the United States for two years while my father was a visiting professor at Yale University. Back then, it was said, “Americans will never eat sushi.” Today, it’s widely popular. Biases and stereotypes made it difficult for many to see how the food item could transcend cultural and national borders. But it did.

 

My point is that there are plenty of common frameworks that no one in your industry has noticed. You can import an idea, just as you can import a product. Frameworks are out there, ready for the taking.
