Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read, watched or listened to this week.

  • Grief and Loss

“It’s hard to acknowledge that something that felt like a curse could also be a blessing. It took me a while to make peace with this.”


  • Learning How to Think

“Poor initial decisions are one of the reasons we’re so busy. With poor thinking, a large chunk of your time is spent correcting mistakes. Good thinking, on the other hand, produces better initial decisions and frees up time and energy.”


  • Transformative Experience: A Primer

“A transformative experience changes who you are – it alters your values and preferences, creating a fundamental disconnect between your pre-transformation and post-transformation selves.”


  • Solitude and Leadership (post includes audio version)

“‘Your own reality—for yourself, not for others.’ Thinking for yourself means finding yourself, finding your own reality.”
