Perfecting Your Pitch
Nov. 20, 2013 - By: Ron Shapiro
“How often do we come out of an important discussion or a negotiation and ponder what we could’ve done differently to achieve a better result? I decided to articulate a system that allows us to find and speak the ‘words that work’ so that we’re not left thinking ‘Oh I wish I had done/said that differently.’”
How To Future-Proof Your Career
Nov. 20, 2013 - By: Jocelyn K. Glei
“The way we interact with people, the tools we use, and the way we work are all changing. This has huge implications for the way we run our careers. It demands that we reinvent our approach, shifting from a focus on past accomplishments—the ‘resumé model’—to constant self-iteration, or what I think of as the ‘learner’s model.’”
Making Decisions like Tomorrow Depends on It
Oct. 17, 2013 - By: Tom Rath
“No matter how healthy you are today, you can take specific actions to have more energy and live longer. Regardless of your age, you can make better choices in the moment. Small decisions—about how you eat, move, and sleep each day—count more than you think.”
Making It Happen! Shifting Your Focus from Something Else to It
Oct. 17, 2013 - By: Jones Loflin & Todd Musig
“Your lack of focus on it is dangerous. You are missing opportunities to deliver your best efforts at work. Your family is suffering from your inability to really engage with them, and you may even be shortening your life because you just won’t pay attention to it.”
What Are We Waiting for? (Learning to Be Present In an Increasingly Noisy World)
Sept. 11, 2013 - By: Jeff Goins
“The antidote to our restlessness is not necessarily another adventure or experience of a lifetime, but a deep abiding in where we are now. How does this happen? With waiting. Normal, everyday situations that test our patience and cause us to reflect on what really matters.”
Success In 5 Easy Lessons
Sept. 11, 2013 - By: G. Richard Shell
“When everyone around you agrees on what success means, it is all too easy to blindly accept their ideas about what to do next. ... If you allow others to define your goals for you, then there is a pretty good chance you will end up holding a prize you did not choose and do not want. Define success for yourself. Then set out to achieve it.”
The Biology of the Bottom Line
Aug. 7, 2013 - By: Frank Forencich
“In a knowledge-based economy, neuro-intellectual assets are vital and may well be more important than conventional, tangible assets. After all, you can always buy a new aircraft or computer, but precious human experience, gained over the course of years or decades, may well be irreplaceable.”
The Impact Manifesto: You Make A Difference Whether You Want To Or Not
Aug. 7, 2013 - By: Ken McArthur
“You impact the people around you. People feel your influence countless times, in amazing ways you never notice. Your impact is incredible, and today is the day you can take charge of it. Today you can amplify everything good. Call it the Impact Factor.”
Brother John
Aug. 7, 2013 - By: August Turak
“The plain truth is that for all our anguish we treasure uncertainty. Doubt forestalls action. The problem with life’s purpose is that we know damn well what it is but are unwilling to face the changes in our lives that a commitment to self-transcendence, to being the best human being we could possibly be, would entail.”
Art Is Freedom
Aug. 7, 2013 - By: Erik Wahl
“My name is Erik Wahl and Art has saved me from a life of slavery. I am a recovering suit and tie. I am recuperating from years as a gear in a wheel that barely touched the ground. And now, after rediscovering my Art by freeing my mind and digging to find my inner creative genius, I am a proud survivor of ‘standardized education.’”
