What I’m Reading – Week of December 6th

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

The solution to the problem of malevolence and tragedy is to confront them.”

Happy Friday. Some of my work notes shared with a client today re: finding meaning in her suffering. Be grateful. It’s a blessing that you get to play The Infinite Game.

Choose sacrifice. Choose growth.

  • How To Handle The Beast

“Our species knows the Beast well, but we don’t talk about it much. I suppose that’s because it’s hard to win at the rat race and other public-facing status games when you admit you are suffering. But suffering less is more important.”


  • How Julia Child Used First Principles Thinking

“There’s a big difference between knowing how to follow a recipe and knowing how to cook. If you can master the first principles within a domain, you can see much further than those who are just following recipes.”


  • Leading During A Crisis (video)

“There are certain kinds of rules in a crisis. Number one, I don’t respond in little pieces and then change my mind. I wait until I get the facts. It’s your response that defines who you really are in other people’s eyes.”
