Elon Musk and Bill Thurston on the Power of Thinking for Yourself

Elon Musk and Bill Thurston on the Power of Thinking for Yourself | Tales of Leadership and Motivation | Scoop.it
Self-taught mental models — or, in simple terms, figuring things out for yourself — seem to be a favorite weapon of brilliant minds. (Richard Feynman, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, also relied heavily on personal mental models.) In many cases, it is the unique point-of-view afforded by self-directed learning and deep thought that enables someone to unleash an idea of minor genius.
How can you go about developing a unique view of the world?

A clarion call to get back to first principles to sharpen your thinking - but you'll probably have to unlearn that school rote exam stuff first!

donhornsby's curator insight, December 20, 2016 7:00 PM
We often live life by analogy and simply assume that what has been true before must be true in the future. Instead, break your problems down to their first principles and you may see very different solutions emerge.

Do You Reflect? 4 Simple Questions To Make Your Reflection A Habit

Do You Reflect? 4 Simple Questions To Make Your Reflection A Habit | Tales of Leadership and Motivation | Scoop.it
When do you make time to reflect?
Is it at the end of the day or week? The end of the month, or even the year?
Perhaps after a project or challenging piece of work? Maybe you reflect after a particularly tough conversation?
It’s important to recognise that without these moments to reflect, your growth as a leader would be somewhat constrained.
How can you go about achieving clarity and self-awareness?

Tom Wojick's curator insight, December 15, 2016 11:43 AM

I subscribe that there are three culture conditions that leaders should create and sustain to keep their organization open to change and for continuous improvement: Engagement, Practice and Reflection. This article provides a framework for creating the condition of reflection. The wording and focus may change but the process is worthwhile. One of the key questions in the process is how did you feel and did your feelings affect what you did?

donhornsby's curator insight, December 16, 2016 10:45 AM
People don't follow a leader because of what that leader preaches. They follow leaders who live and breathe the very example they expect to be upheld. After all, it's not the words that truly change people and their behavior, but the energy that comes with them. And the only way for a leader's energy to truly have an impact on others is if it is being spoken with absolute conviction. The kind of conviction that is only possible if leaders are living what they're preaching. 

 Keep your eyes peeled for the quiet employee who follows through with exactly what he or she said they were going to do. That's your leader, right there.

5 Common Mental Errors That Sway You From Making Good Decisions

5 Common Mental Errors That Sway You From Making Good Decisions | Tales of Leadership and Motivation | Scoop.it
I like to think of myself as a rational person, but I’m not one. The good news is it’s not just me — or you. We are all irrational.
For a long time, researchers and economists believed that humans made logical, well-considered decisions. In recent decades, however, researchers have uncovered a wide range of mental errors that derail our thinking. Sometimes we make logical decisions, but there are many times when we make emotional, irrational, and confusing choices.
Psychologists and behavioral researchers love to geek out about these different mental mistakes. There are dozens of them and they all have fancy names like “mere exposure effect” or “narrative fallacy.” But I don’t want to get bogged down in the scientific jargon today. Instead, let’s talk about the mental errors that show up most frequently in our lives and break them down in easy-to-understand language.
Here are five common mental errors that sway you from making good decisions.
