What I’m Reading – The Week of June 16th

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

  • Do Long-Term Goals Bring Happiness?

If a goal doesn’t change your present behavior, it’s useless. If the goal changes your behavior, but in ways that make you worse off in the now or in the future, it’s worse than useless.”



  • For humans ‘Survival of the Fittest’ means being having empathy (video)


  • How To Tell If You Are Close To Burnout

Stress is really important, and anxiety is what motivates us to do well. It’s when we’re continually exposed to stress and anxiety, that we’re not letting go, that it starts to turn into burnout.


  • The Difference Between Open-Minded and Closed-Minded People

Before you smugly slap an open-minded sticker on your chest, consider this: closed-minded people would never consider that they could actually be closed-minded. In fact, their perceived open-mindedness is what’s so dangerous.”
