“What will grow me personally or professionally, and improve me as a human being today?
What will excite me and give me more energy today?
What will set the stage for an epic-productive day?”
“Open. Listen without interruption, objections, or defensiveness.
Responsive. Be willing to hear the speaker out without turning the table. Ask questions for clarification.
Thoughtful. Seek to understand the effects and consequences of your behavior.
Explicit. Make it clear what kind of feedback you are seeking and why it is important to you. Offer a structure for the feedback–questions, rating scales, stories.
Quiet. Refrain from making or preparing to make a response. Do not be distracted by the need to explain, defend, or fix.
Clear with your commitment. Describe how you have benefited from the feedback and what specific steps you will take toward improvement.
Clarifying. Make sure you are clear about what the speakers are seeing, saying, and recommending.”
“If you’re thinking too much, you’re probably stuck in your head and intellectualizing things too much. The most important decisions you’ll ever encounter will always be based on your feelings — it’s a heart thing, not a head thing. Not sure if you can rely on your heart just yet? OK, do this: Document every decision you make over the next three months. Look over which decisions were spot on because you chose to rely on that “inner voice.””
[Illustration by Ansellia Kulikku.] Nightly I eat black For breakfast I ask for a fine blue world because there’s an ecosystem inside my organs I do not understand One day I will no longer care to live on plants, the tundra, gauze & floss Every child lives for a while & sometimes I am even…
I found a dimpled spider, fat and white,
On a white heal-all, holding up a moth
Like a white piece of rigid satin cloth–
Assorted characters of death and blight
Mixed ready to begin the morning right,
Like the ingredients of a witches’ broth–
A snow-drop spider, a flower like a froth,
And dead wings carried like a paper kite.
What had that flower to do with being white,
The wayside blue and innocent heal-all?
What brought the kindred spider to that height,
Then steered the white moth thither in the night?
What but design of darkness to appall?–
If design govern in a thing so small.
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
“Hardly it be that any about it’s not think that it is not possible. The other hand, is impossible to takes work in the world every day of living. Impossible against always some moves. We see that we do or not. Impossible against run rule that we determined that suddenly we have a great working pass. This means that our goal is it would be, which is usually get not worth, but it, we little try then continue until it is not meet the go. In this case for example, reduction not. One of Australia Nick are the same. Birth of their both hands and feet are not. Legs of place out some fingers with the help of he write learned. Accounting and finance degree in Lee and then a company open. attitude is attitude. Today he is a successful motivational speaker. Swimming do, football to play. We impossible to fight against the materiality should be. Status quo change thinking should be. Strength your you come days. Hemingway’s greatest masterpiece the old man and the sea a eligible-the fisherman Santiago. His small boat sea alone is and wanton waves, shark of two days and two night face while returns. His hand just fish Forks look, even though he himself managed to admit. Not necessarily you aim be achieved only. If live life to gathering, you him losing more are happy.”
