The 4 Elements of Physical Energy and How to Master Them! 

“Manage your energy, not your time” – Tony Schwartz

Whenever we are struggling under more workload, the first thing is to stop what we’re doing and think about a better way to manage our energy, not to add more work hours to our days.

Schwartz famously proclaims in his book, that most of us are chasing the wrong resource: hours in the day. Instead, we should focus on something entirely different: our energy.

Our energy can be broken down in 4 different elements:

Your physical energy – how healthy are you?
Your emotional energy – how happy are you?
Your mental energy – how well can you focus on something?
Your spiritual energy – why are you doing all of this? What is your purpose?

Building up all 4 of these elements for a greater capacity of physical energy will build the base for getting better at whatever it is you want to improve, says Tony Schwartz.
"Manage your energy, not your time" says the famous quote from Tony Schwartz. Physical energy is the most important element of it, here we take a closer look:

The Millennium Project- 2013-14 State of the Future! 

Compelling overview of humanity's situation, potentials for our future, and what we should do today – in clear, precise, and readable text with unparalleled breadth and depth.

his “report card on the future of the world” is the accumulated intelligence over 17 years from more than 4,500 futurists, business planners, scholars, and other thought leaders selected by 50 Nodes of The Millennium Project around the world.

The most influential annual report on what we know about the future of humanity
Paul Werbos, National Science Foundation
Invaluable insights into the future
Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General

2013-14 State of the Future shows that the world is improving better than most pessimists know, but future dangers are worse than most optimists indicate.  The global situation for humanity continues to improve in general, but at the expense of the environment. People around the world are becoming healthier, wealthier, better educated, more peaceful, and increasingly connected, and they are living longer. The child mortality rate has dropped 47% since 1990, extreme poverty in the developing world fell from 50% in 1981 to 21% in 2010, primary school completion rates grew from 81% in 1990 to 91% in 2011, only one transborder war occurred in 2013, nearly 40% of humanity is connected via the Internet, and life expectancy has increased ten years over the past twenty years to reach 70.5 years today.

The report distills insights on 15 Global Challenges and strategies to address each.   Some of the recommendations in the report include:  
•           US-China 10-year environmental security goal to reduce climate change and improve trust
•           Growing meat without growing animals  to reduce water demand and GHGs
•           Seawater agriculture for biofuels, carbon sink, food without rain 
•           Global collective intelligence systems input for humanity’s long-range strategic plans 
•           Tele-nations connecting brains overseas to the development process back home
•           TransInstitutions for more effective implementation of strategies
•           A global counter-organized-crime strategy
•           State of the Future Index as better alternative to GDP as a measure of progress

7 Ways To Build Your Courage Against Impossible Odds! 

Understanding exactly what we want is the foundation for our success. But executing that success requires taking the next step, every day, no matter how difficult it may be. That means you don't get to sit around and wait for success.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” - Patanjali, Indian philosopher

Fear has a place in our emotional life, and it shows up daily. Everything causes it: finding new work, dealing with financial uncertainty, creating something new, contemplating failure. By necessity, our minds are designed to let fear in--without it, we'd never survive.

But how do you keep fear from impeding your ability to fulfill your potential?

These seven principles helped me develop my courage:

Acting fearlessly often means heading into uncharted territory, challenging conventional paths, or putting aside the need for safety and comfort. Where do you get the energy to do so? Usually from your authentic purpose--your personal calling in life.

The fearless are busy creating their future. They visualize their future and invent their way into it. 

Taking unconventional paths requires taking risks for a greater reward (financial or otherwise). It takes courage to act differently than others might. Fearless people tend not to dwell on things, but are decisive--the unknown shouldn't paralyze you.

Acting fearlessly means you have to be resilient. Because if you are, you'll develop a mental capacity that lets you adapt, with ease, when things don't go your way. Like bamboo, resilient types bend but rarely break. You also have to let go. That ability to let go drives a constant process of change--it's what makes people flexible and adaptable.

Nelson Mandela in his teens, heard a tribal elder say, “These are our young men. They are our future. But the truth is they are second-class citizens…they will always be boys.” Mandela made a decision to change South Africa upon hearing this. And his decision changed the world.
Fearless people work with what they have and turn obstacles into opportunities. They are at ease with challenges, disappointments, and rejections. Instead of setbacks, they try to see these events as gifts and find ways to utilize them to move forward.

University of California, Davis professor Dean Keith Simonton explains that creative geniuses, from Mozart to Darwin, are prolific when it comes to failure--they just don’t let their fear stop them. Failure is part of the process for these types. Creative people simply do more experiments, so they have more chances to be successful.

It takes more courage to say no than to say yes. But if you do it, you'll protect yourself from making poor decisions. This tactic can help you stay focused and prevent unnecessary complexity and wrong turns. It can also keep you from getting involved with the wrong people.

“The future cannot be predicted, but futures can be invented. It was man’s ability to invent which has made human society what it is. The mental processes of inventions are still mysterious. They are rational but not logical, that is to say, not deductive.” - Nobel Laureate Dennis Gabor in his book, Inventing the Future.
Conquering fear is about self-awareness, wisdom, and understanding your strengths--often in the face of adversity. Luckily these are personality...

The Emergence of the Sustainability Professional! 

As humanity has developed and expanded its footprint on our Earth, the complexity and interrelatedness of our systems has increased exponentially.

Utopian designs for sustainable living on Earth are abundant, yet a new stable configuration of the global system can't simply be agreed upon and implemented overnight -- to rely on spontaneous change ignores the complexity and lag-cycles evidenced by the state of the world today. Instead, correcting our "Spaceship Earth's" course towards a balanced preferred state can only be achieved by the cumulative effects of transition measures that will bring about a new paradigm. This, in essence, is the mission of the sustainability pioneers; and to achieve it they must become embedded in every facet of human activity.

Incorporating these values and forward planning into every productive activity that involves the use of Earth's physical assets is only the first step. Sustainability professionals aim to find ways of incorporating this worldview into the decision-making frame of reference that guide corporate boardrooms, financial investments and policy choices. Recognizing interrelatedness and complexity is not the destination, it is part of the path forward, and finding solutions to our most difficult problems is filled with paradoxes.

The emergence of professional sustainability managers is a product of individual initiative, belief in human agency and responsibility to ensure Earth's appropriate stewardship. This is the new frontier and it is laden with opportunity. It is fueled by the empowerment for everyone to collaborate to create better outcomes for humanity through strategies that balance the transition from scarcity to abundance with our needs and those of next generations. These generalists are the timely response to the growing global consensus: sustainability is simply not optional.

7 Traits of True Leaders

"It's not about building bigger companies but about serving something bigger," says Gerzema. "There's so much cynicism that people are out for short-term gain. Leadership today is about taking people into a better future. That's a long trip."

Control is a mirage. The most effective leaders right now--men and women--are those who embrace traits once considered feminine: Empathy. Vulnerability. Humility. Inclusiveness. Generosity. Balance. Patience.

Women were rated as better overall leaders than their male counterparts. The more exalted the position, the wider the gap.

Two-thirds said the world would be a better place if men thought more like women. Gerzema also asked consumers to characterize 125 traits as male, female, or neutral and to indicate those most desirable in modern leaders. Topping the list of most desirable traits were patience, expressiveness, intuition, flexibility, empathy, and many other traits identified by respondents as feminine.

- Empathy: Being sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of others
- Vulnerability: Owning up to one's limitations and asking for help
- Humility: Seeking to serve others and to share credit
- Inclusiveness: Soliciting and listening to many voices
- Generosity: Being liberal with time, contacts, advice, and support
- Balance: Giving life, as well as work, its due
- Patience: Taking a long-term view

We have progressed from command-and-control (roughly through the 1980s) to empower-and-track (the 1990s to mid-2000s) to connect-and-nurture (today). Increasingly, the chief executive role is taking its place among the caring professions. It takes a tender person to lead a tough company.

In the past 15 years or so, three factors have emerged to make a softer leadership style more attractive. Those factors are interdependence, cynicism, and the quest for sustainability.

- Interdependence. Some business leaders see competition as a sprint and some as a marathon. But for virtually all, it has become a three-legged race that is impossible to win alone. Companies co-create with customers and vendors; they enlist their entire supply chains--sometimes even competitors--in risk management; they assume employees, consumers, and government agencies will call them out on their practices.

- Cynicism is the natural consequence of watching a long line of corporate dominoes topple over more than a decade as executives ignored risk to maximize profits. In their new book, Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman cite research showing not that women are risk averse but that they are better judges than men of their own abilities and less likely to play if they don't think they will win.

- Sustainability. At first, sustainability pertained exclusively to the preservation of natural resources and the environment. But the concept has expanded to include giving back to communities and supporting and developing employees--not just out of concern for their quality of life but also to improve performance.

A related development is a growing focus on listening, which in the pantheon of leadership skills is ascending to the same level as communication. Communication still rules. 

But business leaders and management experts increasingly tout the importance of learning to hear--really hear--what others say. Consider former IBM chief Sam Palmisano's observation, reported in the McKinsey Quarterly last year, that his time in Japan was crucial to his leadership development because it forced him to bear down on listening simply for the sake of comprehension.
Control is a mirage. The most effective leaders right now--men and women--are those who embrace traits once considered feminine: Empathy. Vulnerability. Humility. Inclusiveness. Generosity. Balance. Patience.

How to Change Your Beliefs and Stick to Your Goals for Good! 

Every time we participate in a ritual, we are expressing our beliefs, either verbally or more implicitly. — Tony Schwartz

The basic idea is that the beliefs you have about yourself can drive your long-term behavior. Maybe you can trick yourself into going to the gym or eating healthy once or twice, but if you don’t shift your underlying identity, then it’s hard to stick with long-term changes.

First, identity-based habits focus on you rather than your goals.
Second, the idea of “casting votes for your identity” reveals how your daily actions add up over the long-term.
Third, this framework helps to remove the “All or Nothing” philosophy that can so easily wreck our progress.

KM and Education in the Sharing Economy! 

"We are all stuck in our own bubbles. We usually only share things with people we already know. It really got me thinking: Why not open this social capital?"

‪#‎Collcons‬ Pioneer Interview with Michel Visser of Konnektid, the first demand-based platform of the Netherlands where people can share skills and knowledge with each other.

What is your advice to other startups in the sharing economy?

Start with a problem which is real for you and you are passionate about. Solve real problems for real people. And you are real. And my other advice would be to start now. Share your idea. Start small: make it work for 10 people. If it works for 10 people, it can work for the bigger mass, too.

What is your ‘promise to the world’?

 Konnektid helps people to get ownership over their own education again. We empower people to grow their passions and their skills, as they like it. It’s not only fun to keep developing yourself and learn from each other, but it also contributes to your own success in both personal and professional lives.

What’s your final thought?

Inspiration doesn’t lie in what you already know but in what you are about to discover.

A Field Guide for Systems Change: The Art of Social Innovation! 

“We are longing for profound renewal and change in our collective structures and institutions. We have been waiting, consciously or not, all our lives. And now, it seems, a window is beginning to open.” - by Otto Scharmer, Theory U: Leading from the Future as it Emerges, 2007 

A grasp from the content:
- SOIL: What are the foundations for change? 
- SEED: What do we as individuals need to shift in ourselves? 
- ORGANISM: Who do we engage and how? 
- CUTIVATION: How do we take social innovation to scale? 
- ECOSYSTEM: How does community and collaboration support our work?
- METHODS / MODELS: What metaphors apply to complex social processes? 
- TOOLS: What techniques can we use to facilitate a transformative experience?

Authentic relationships between diverse practitioners and would-be allies in the system are a powerful force for creating movement towards a new system. A community of practice is a forum to bring together those who are experimenting with new initiatives with those who are successfully pioneering new alternatives in a given field. Communities of practice are physical and virtual containers created for intentional learning together, advancing the field of practice and sharing knowledge and stories. CoPs also keep multiple strategic initiatives connected, so that they don’t fall into issues of fragmentation that may have been at the root of some of the original failures of the system.

“Learning new skills, facing new obstacles, living with new people, encountering new environments; such complexities provide the chaos and the friction that wear out preconceptions, challenge limits, invite inner strength, reveal natural brilliance. Properly contained, complexity reduces things to what matters most.” - Crane Stookey, The Container Principle, 2001

New Rules for the New Economy! 

Twelve dependable principles for thriving in a turbulent world.

The advent of the new economy was first noticed as far back as 1969, when Peter Drucker perceived the arrival of knowledge workers. The new economy is often referred to as the Information Economy, because of information's superior role (rather than material resources or capital) in creating wealth.

The new rules governing this global restructuring revolve around several axes. First, wealth in this new regime flows directly from innovation, not optimization; that is, wealth is not gained by perfecting the known, but by imperfectly seizing the unknown. Second, the ideal environment for cultivating the unknown is to nurture the supreme agility and nimbleness of networks. Third, the domestication of the unknown inevitably means abandoning the highly successful known - undoing the perfected. And last, in the thickening web of the Network Economy, the cycle of "find, nurture, destroy" happens faster and more intensely than ever before.

The Network Economy is not the end of history. Given the rate of change, this economic arrangement may not endure more than a generation or two. Once networks have saturated every space in our lives, an entirely new set of rules will take hold. Take these principles, then, as rules of thumb for the interim.

1. The Law of Connection - Embrace dumb power
2. The Law of Plentitude - More gives more
3. The Law of Exponential Value - Success is nonlinear
4. The Law of Tipping Points - Significance precedes momentum
5. The Law of Increasing Returns - Make virtuous circles
6. The Law of Inverse Pricing - Anticipate the cheap
7. The Law of Generosity - Follow the free
8. The Law of the Allegiance - Feed the web first
9. The Law of Devolution - Let go at the top
10. The Law of Displacement - The net wins
11. The Law of Churn - Seek sustainable disequilibrium
12. The Law of Inefficiencies - Don't solve problems

Peter Drucker has noted that in the industrial age, the task for each worker was to discover how to do his job better; that's productivity. But in the Network Economy, where machines do most of the inhumane work of manufacturing, the task for each worker is not "how to do this job right" but "what is the right job to do?" In the coming era, doing the exactly right next thing is far more "productive" than doing the same thing better. But how can one easily measure this vital sense of exploration and discovery? It will be invisible to productivity benchmarks.

Wasting time and being inefficient are the way to discovery. The Web is being run by 20-year-olds because they can afford to waste the 50 hours it takes to become proficient in exploring the Web. While 40-year-old boomers can't take a vacation without thinking how they'll justify the trip as being productive in some sense, the young can follow hunches and create seemingly mindless novelties on the Web without worrying about whether they are being efficient. Out of these inefficient tinkerings will come the future.

In the Network Economy, productivity is not our bottleneck. Our ability to solve our social and economic problems will be limited primarily by our lack of imagination in seizing opportunities, rather than trying to optimize solutions. In the words of Peter Drucker, as echoed recently by George Gilder, "Don't solve problems, seek opportunities." When you are solving problems, you are investing in your weaknesses; when you are seeking opportunities, you are banking on the network. The wonderful news about the Network Economy is that it plays right into human strengths. Repetition, sequels, copies, and automation all tend toward the free, while the innovative, original, and imaginative all soar in value.

Our minds will at first be bound by old rules of economic growth and productivity. Listening to the network can unloose them. In the Network Economy, don't solve problems, seek opportunities.
