When you are looked at as your potential, you feel the need and desire to grow into that potential.
Naturally, some people will let us down, but there is more value in believing in people than forfeiting because of a small percentage.
What sets the championship teams apart?
There can be no cracks between players, coaches, and owners or the media gets in and works their magic
It is a focused effort from everyone involved with the organization
What makes an effective coach?
There is probably nothing more lonely than being in a bad relationship or a bad marriage.
Does technology make us feel lonely or do we use technology because we feel lonely?
In a landmark study conducted by researchers at Stanford University, a total of 3000 participants were observed (1500 were in the control group and the other 1500 deactivated their Facebook accounts)
Other subsequent studies only supported this. Social media makes people feel more lonely.
There is a stigma in admitting you are lonely because the market for popularity has never been more visible
The truth is everyone is lonely: old, young, rich, poor, male, female, etc.
The more individualistic the society is, the lonelier it’s likely to be (neo-liberal capitalist mindset)
More individualism, more loneliness, more neoliberalism, more loneliness.
Why are people hesitant to rethink things?
We need to give ourselves permission to enter rethinking cycles.
The rethinking cycle starts with intellectual humility, knowing what you don’t know despite your expertise in a given topic
Being aware of your ignorance leads you to doubt your convictions
It makes you curious about what you don’t know and that opens your mind to new discoveries
“I’m entitled to my opinion” is not a good way to end a conversation
If you decide to speak out, you have a responsibility to be open to changing your mind in the face of better logic or stronger data.
You will make mistakes; NASA didn’t make it to where it is by playing it safe
Rocket science is not low risk
Not being able to carry worries is a big leadership weakness
If a leader can’t handle worries, it will make the whole organization behave in a way that hides potential risks
Procrastination is the inability to deal with emotional discomfort.
People have always been distracted, it’s not something that came with the iPhone or Facebook. The leading cause of distraction are internal triggers: boredom, uncertainty, fatigue, anxiety
Everyone has been creative at least once in their life.
What does it mean to be creative more than once?
If you exert the emotional labour to do those two things, sometimes you will have a successful creative outcome (that is a choice).

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
