Think Social, Not Stupid

"Several of my colleagues/friends, in their love of instant and widely published bursts of Tweets, Facebook and More - have done some “Stupid” things that they almost instantly have regretted.

 

It is so simple to grab that smart phone or tablet and type 140 characters of instant emotion, thought or “aha”. It is so simple to post it to a Twitter account that might resonate with hundreds, thousands or even more readers...  Recently, an actress from a Broadway show saw a preview of a new play..." via Elliott Masie's Learning TRENDS - 734 - August 2, 2012.

How One Word Turned a Sinking Ship Into A Culture of Power | Good LifeProject: Build Your Own Good Life

How One Word Turned a Sinking Ship Into A Culture of Power | Good LifeProject: Build Your Own Good Life | Good Advice | Scoop.it

After 19 years in the Navy, David Marquet, was given command of his own fast-attack nuclear submarine.

 

But there was a problem. It was the worst performing sub in the Navy. Morale was horrible, turnover insanely high and culture nonexistent.

 

All traditional approaches to leadership had failed. So, Marquet, decided to try something radically different. It was his George Costanza opposite moment.

 

If prevailing wisdom wasn't working, what if you did the exact opposite? Heresy? Maybe. But would it work?

 

Indeed it did. Within 12 months, Marquet had turned the worst performing crew into the best. And it all began with a change to a single word that would unlock wisdom, responsibility and power in every person on the ship.

 

In this week's episode of Good Life Project, Marquet and I explore the shock of his new commission, the horrifying incidents that led him to realize how broken the culture and leadership system had become (and how he came very close to grounding the sub because of it).

 

We dive into how changing that single word sparked a wholesale shift in culture and performance. And we go deep into his new "Leader Leader" approach that led to what most believed was an impossible transformation under extreme conditions in a remarkably short period of time.

How to Who: On Starting to Watch Classic Doctor Who

How to Who: On Starting to Watch Classic Doctor Who | Good Advice | Scoop.it

While you can start with the first episode and go from there, you can’t watch Doctor Who, from the very beginning, in its entirety. Literally, it is impossible. The BBC recorded over old film to save money, and so a lot of the second Doctor’s stories and some of the first Doctor’s stories have been lost.

 

You might also find starting from extant first Doctor episodes maddening for several reasons. The pace is slow, it’s black and white, the film quality is poor, and they haven’t decided what they want to do with the Doctor as a character yet. He’s a creepy trickster who seems to lack the moral core that centered later Doctors. Even his alienness is in doubt. In his virgin outing, he tries to bludgeon a caveman to death with a big rock. A human companion (action science teacher Ian Chesterton) has to call him out on that.
