Below are some of the most intriguing, thought-provoking and actionable performance-related content pieces I read, watched or listened to this week.
- The Only Thing You Need To Get Good At
“As hard as life is, the only refuge you need, or ever have, is your own will to do what you can within your own sphere. That’s all you need to attend to, all you need to think about, all you need to get good at. You carry this refuge with you wherever you go, and nobody can take it away.”
- Different Kinds of Stupid
“Smart is the ability to solve hard problems, which can be done many ways. Stupid is a tendency to not comprehend easy problems. It’s also is a diversified trait.”
- Why Are People Miserable At Work?
“For years young people have been advised to “follow your passion.” When that advice proved fruitless (and for the majority of people it truly is), people began to benchmark themselves against others. Everything becomes a game of relativity.”
- Workism Is Making People Miserable
“For the college-educated elite, work has morphed into a religious identity—promising identity, transcendence, and community, but failing to deliver.”
- Wise People Have Rules For Themselves
“Self-imposed rules aren’t constraints, they’re good decisions made in batches—they’re behavioral boundary markers you get to position yourself, through your own experience and wisdom. A good personal standard clarifies and simplifies, eliminating what would be countless painful decision points. ”
