What I’m Reading – Week of February 16th

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

  • How to Create Gratitude

“It’s important that it’s an ordinary moment, because those are the kinds of moments that often seem neutral in value. Abundant and unremarkable.”


  • Emotionally Intelligent People Insert a Pause Between Action And Reaction

“Understanding your emotions is great, but what’s even more useful for you is making use of that knowledge.”


  • It’s Better To Focus On Where You Are Going Than How You Are Feeling

“Think of valued living as going about your daily life in the service of values that you find important, whereby engaging in these actions creates a sense of meaning and purpose.”


  • The Illusory Truth Effect

“Truth is a precarious thing, not because it doesn’t objectively exist, but because the incentives to warp it can be so strong.”
