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

  • On Endurance and Time Horizons

One is how much time you have to achieve your goals. The other is whether you’re situated to hang around long enough to take advantage of that horizon.”

You are always explaining to yourself the motivations for your actions and the causes to the effects in your life, and you make them up without realizing it when you don’t know the answers. Over time, these explanations become your idea of who you are and your place in the world. They are your self… You are a story you tell yourself.”

  • On the Relationship Between Dogs and Man

The dog is a result of fear transformed into love. When we look at a dog, we see the best in ourselves.”

Nothing could be more self-defeating than scrutinizing one’s life purpose. We ask ourselves if we are enjoying every bit of our work. We ask if we are living up to all our talents and potentials. The self becomes our preoccupation.

People who lead meaningful lives forget to ask these questions.”
