Thursday Flash (50)

We are getting to the end of the year and the second last flash…

This post caught my eye on how successful people make smart decisions. Or are they?

Then this post about a growth mindset, written by no one else than myself, is a good post to reflect on how you approach the world.

And last but not least, this post looks at the self help industry that Tim Ferris co-created, and wonders if he or the people like him are able to help? I’d like to think so, particularly as life gets more complex, you want to get more help. A coach would do 🙂

Have a great week,
Volker

This week is a lot about emotions.

Importance of naming your emotions – a great article from the Energy Project.

Former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink: Daily routines to change your life – he was recently interviewed by Tim Ferris, worth a listen!

These habits for an EQ (Emotional Intelligent) person can make you a better listener.

See you back in a flash 😉

This Seth Godin mini blog post on negative reviews is quite crafty, and quite true. Love it.

David Allen’s one and only productivity tip, or the most important one anyway is a must read 😉

When tomorrow’s dreams become today’s actions is a nice closure for the week.

Have a good one,
Volker

An article worth reading about the nostalgia on the internet. You might get some flash backs afterwards 😉

Then I read: Top five career lessons learned. It is all about experience and what you learn from jobs. So that’s fun!

And last but not least, and I recently read a whole book about it, there was a good find on bad body language and which behaviour you find difficult to quit. Take note!

See you next Thursday.

This week you can find out 20 Ways to Build Empathy – something to improve your EQ?

Also, why strong leaders attract the best talent, and why leadership is important. It is about choosing your boss as much as your next role when looking for a new job. Definitely worth reading.

And last but not least, some hot tips and tricks around working from home (wfh).

If you liked this week, don’t forget to share it!

Have a good one,

This week, there is an article about five ways to improve focus at work – some useful tips, don’t you think?

In line with that, have a think, as a business owner, how to become a great place to work! Even if you don’t own your business, how can you contribute to it?

Mike Vardy writes about ‘This is What You Do’ but really asks the question whether what you do is what you should be doing and why is it that you are doing it. Enjoy. A good read IMO.

See you soon,
Volker

This week is about six rituals from ancient wisdom that will make you happy (if you follow the advice) – a rather long but worthwhile read on things we have known for generations, yet have we applied that knowledge?

And if you want to become rich, try to work on those seven wealth mentalities. No guarantee from my end though.

Lastly, if you learn the 7 traits of the most resilient people, you might become rich too. Again, no guarantee 🙂

This week I found an article that talks about how successful leaders manage a demanding schedule. There are a few tricks you can learn I suppose?

And sticking with the theme of What Successful People Say In Out Of Office Email (That You’re Missing Out On).

And the final recommended read is about humans and where we outperform AI (Artificial Intelligence). Man vs. Machine 🙂

This week is a lot about doing more with less and things you shouldn’t do at all.

Let’s start with the things you shouldn’t do. As you can guess these are things hindering your productivity.

And this article I found useful, it is about why working more is getting you less. A strong point I made in my book and things I still feel challenged about around life life balance.

Last but not least, on the note of productivity, I found an article on a todo list that might work – I am not convinced, but it’s an interesting take.

This week is a bit of self help tips…

From how to appear smart in meetings – some super cool stuff in there, but not sure I would recommend all of those.

To 8 ways how to get through the afternoon slump. Oh yes, those days are getting shorter and we are getting more tired after lunch, aren’t we?

And whilst some argue there is no ‘negative’ feedback, there are those questions that lower resistance to negative feedback.

Have a great Thursday….see you in a flash 😉
