And why morning successes are so important.
Experiencing a lot of small successes each day is more important to your motivation than being recognized for a big accomplishment.

Like all things, there is a shadow side to stress. It can be channeled to motivate. However, based on the number of people who suffer from various anxiety disorders, we need help in learning how to channel stress and anxiety to make it work for us.

...And why we shut down during stressful situations.
According to psychologists, we are biologically set up to have trouble being productive, but luckily there's a process to overcome it.

Why you should switch jobs every 3 years for the rest of your life

Building trust is a delicate concept; it’s hard to build, and extremely easy to destroy.
In some workplaces, scheduling time for small talk can save lives. But with all teams, that act of building trust is crucial.

"I’ve had several instances where I’ve started a business, sold it, made a lot of money, and then basically lost everything I made, whether it was $50 million or $5 million or whatever. I always have a tendency to lose everything I made."
Staying focused on the right things can make all the difference.

Robots will mimic your gestures and expressions, work alongside you, take your job, but don't sweat it.
Robot staff may already outnumber humans at some companies, but increased automation doesn't mean everyone will be out of work.
