Don’t Leave Your Heart at Home

Aspire-CS

. Some of the leaders I know admit that they are a different person at home than they are at work. When I ask them to describe themselves in each place, I find that they describe a more genuine, heart-centered person at home. At work, they say they tend to be more reserved and cerebral. Do you see yourself in this? I think this divided behavior is a shame.

Why Leaders Are Not Flexible

TEDx Talk - Why You Will Fail (and how not to)

Management Craft

I enjoyed this TEDx talk from Larry Smith called Why you will fail to have a great career. It is very inspirational in a counter-intuitive way. Check it out and then check your assumptions and beliefs that will help or hinder your success and satisfaction.The times where we "go for it" will be those we remember the most because they are the times when we fully use our potential. Courage and gumption and passion launch things. Resoluteness fuels continued progress.

Habit, Emotion, and Decision-making - 3 Paths to Action

I am biased towards action. I have a PhD and 95% of what I know today I learned on my own after earning that degree. So seemingly my head is full of knowledge. Some people have used the word "wisdom," and that's probably true, too. But none of this wonderful knowledge ingrained in my prefrontal cortex is worth anything unless it leads to action. In the end, what matters is not what I think about something, but what I do about it. Reflect while there's still time, but what gets results is action.
