The Difference Between Successful and Very Successful People

The Difference Between Successful and Very Successful People | Personal Development | Scoop.it
Young Spirits's insight:

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.

Een analyse van de methode-Van Gaal in zes stappen

Een analyse van de methode-Van Gaal in zes stappen | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Eerder schreven we dat de invloed van voetbalcoaches verwaarloosbaar is. Maar dat geldt niet voor Louis van Gaal. Als het Nederlands elftal vanavond wint tegen Spanje, komt dat voor een groot deel door zijn unieke kwaliteiten. Je zou het niet zeggen, maar de bondscoach is zelfs opvallend bescheiden over zijn rol. Een analyse van de methode-Van Gaal in zes stappen.

Young Spirits's insight:

Sterke analyse van de moderne managementmethoden die van Gaal  toepast als toptrainer.

Survey: Happiness At Work

Survey: Happiness At Work | Personal Development | Scoop.it

"Science based staff engagement survey to measure what matters - happiness. Become happier and more productive at work and unleash potential."

Young Spirits's insight:

How happy are you with your job? Take a few minutes to fill in the survey on this website, which is largely based on Csikszentmihalyi's Flow theory. The outcome will probably be truthful – and it can even be a little confronting. But hey, it's never a bad thing to take a look in the mirror, is it?

Very cool TedX speech. Unfortunately there are few solutions in it but some very good explanations of why we often don't change our behaviors/habits.  Perhaps the solutions are up to us.  We each need our unique bad habit stoppers?
