How To Build A New Habit

How To Build A New Habit | I LuV These!! | Scoop.it

According to researchers at Duke University, habits account for about 40 percent of our behaviors on any given day. 

 

Understanding how to build new habits (and how your current ones work) is essential for making progress in your health, your happiness, and your life in general.

 

But there can be a lot of information out there and most of it isn’t very simple to digest. To solve this problem and break things down in a very simple manner, I have created this strategy guide for building new habits that actually stick.

Why You’re Probably Not Enjoying Your Job Very Much

Why You’re Probably Not Enjoying Your Job Very Much | I LuV These!! | Scoop.it

Almost certainly, you’ve been having a bad time at work. In a perfect world, work should do so much for us: lend us purpose and a sense of achievement, offer us meaning and comradeship. But invariably, something goes wrong: our talents feel like they’re not being recognised, the company seems unfit to sacrifice a life for, the day-to-day tasks are mundane and stressful and many in management are like grown-up versions of playground bullies.

 

We are readily drawn to blaming ourselves for the mess: we were impulsive in our career choices, we were vain and lazy; we haven’t got the drive of a classmate from university (she now runs an empire). Yet for all the truths that self-condemnation might contain, many of the factors that cause our dreams to run into the sand in fact lie outside of our direct control, in the very structure of employment within the capitalist system. To blame ourselves is to misunderstand the nature of reality.

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick | I LuV These!! | Scoop.it

Sometimes one of the important aspects to career success can be something intangible like how likeable you are.

 

That vague feeling of goodwill is often determined by how genuine you seem when interacting with others. One of the first steps to showing someone you sincerely care about what they’re saying is remembering what they say--especially their name.

 

According to a Dale Carnegie training course I took last year, the sweetest sound to anyone’s ear--no matter what language it’s in--is their name. Without nailing down this first step, it can be difficult to move forward in building a genuine professional or personal relationship. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult task since someone else’s name often doesn’t mean anything to us (it’s just another word) so it’s difficult for our brains to remember it.

Are You Spending Enough Time With Your Boss?

Are You Spending Enough Time With Your Boss? | I LuV These!! | Scoop.it

If you only rarely see your boss, it’s time to get on her calendar. A new study claims that spending just the right amount of time with your supervisor might make you happier at work.

 

A study released Wednesday by leadership training and research company LeadershipIQ found a correlation between time spent with a direct supervisor and employees’ levels of work-related inspiration, engagement and motivation.

 

Researchers found that those levels peak for workers who spend six hours a week with the boss.

 

Beyond six hours, benefits decreased for many workers. Mark Murphy, founder and CEO of Leadership IQ, said too much time with a boss can become counterproductive or irritating.

The average tech CEO works about 300 days a year, 14 hours a day. That’s 4,200 hours a year.

 

The stats for most other tech leaders and startup employees aren’t too far off. It sounds like a lot of time, but for most, it’s not enough. Nearly 30% of that time gets sunk into email. Another third gets spent in meetings--and studies show that half of those hours are completely wasted.

Dogs feel empathy for humans, study suggests

Dogs feel empathy for humans, study suggests | I LuV These!! | Scoop.it

A recent study by UK researchers from Goldsmiths College in London suggests that dogs may be capable of empathy.

 

They set out to collect 18 untrained pet dogs and place a stranger and the dogs owner in different places. The owner and stranger would alternately express themselves vocally in various ways. 15 of the 18 dogs sought out the person making distressed sounds, even if it was the stranger(Garrett).

 

=====================
this demonstrates that dogs are capable of exhibiting consolatory behavior, and thus, a degree of empathy in trying to comfort the sad person.
