Yes, I hate blogs touting lists for improvement too. But some interesting ideas here...particularly Workshop Popcorn: using change of location as a refresher. Go get 'em.

Difficult conversations, difficult subjects are not things most of us put our hands up for. And yet, if we want people to change their thinking, we need to get their minds on board with us. How?

It's not easy to encourage people to think about difficult or sad things in our community. Like poverty. Here, women just like us, find themselves hungry. A beautiful creative project using photography and story-events brings the conversation into conversation. Great idea for your NFP campaign?

Digging for our real story?

+Paula Reed Nancarrow 's post about  finding and telling stories about thankfulness that avoid sentimentality, cliche and downright schlock is great. (And I'm thankful for that!)

It's official. People who feel cared about are happier! Well yes, we all know that! But it's good to think about how this translates at work. This survey measures levels of satisfaction, teamwork and customer relations. And it reminds us that we need emotional definitions of good culture, not just cognitive ones. Results-orientation and teamwork are good to shoot for, but what about joy, pride and affection too? It's been measured team.. so we've got the data to back it up. Share the love and get results! Hah!

We don't have to accept 'stories' imposed by media or big biz. Dove (yes..I know it's big biz!) gets young women to re-define 'beauty' with selfies in this charming ad. Mothers and daughters trying to change an old story together too! This is very neat and so encouraging.

You should watch this. So much to take out. Not least is seeing  the thrill of collaboration WITHOUT being sure of an outcome.  Oh, they were the days... Thanks +edward boches

The most underrated aspect of creative thought is simply time and focus. Why do we get some of our best ideas in the shower? Is it something about the water? Or the soap? Or perhaps it's simply the one place we're alone with our thoughts and imagination. Nothing to distract us and nothing demanding. Maybe all leaders should install office showers where those old filing cabinets used to be! Just hop into that simple white cubicle between meetings and let the ideas flow.

So you've got 10,000 spare hours and you think that's all it will take to be the genius to write the novel, get the symphony gig, do the big TED talk? Oh uhhhh... not so fast. It's not just the number of hours but what we do in them. Derrrr... didn't we know that? Apparently not. This is a very interesting reminder from the fabulous Maria Popova. Repeat after me:
It's the qualitative difference in how you pay attention, not the quantitative measure of clocking in the hours... that makes the genius-difference. (So if you're not going to work consciously...go back to bed! Hah! )
