The power of starting with ‘yes’

Mon, Apr 20, 2015|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on The power of starting with ‘yes’

From Tony Schwartz in NY Times: I once served on a committee led by a powerful woman. She had strong views, but what I remember most is that whenever I spoke, she nodded her head vigorously and affirmatively. Over time, I learned that her nodding didn’t mean she necessarily agreed with me. Even so, I always sensed that she was listening closely and carefully considering what I had to say.

Today I make my living in part by speaking to large groups. Instinctively, I find myself scanning the audience for beacons of affirmation — people whose positive body language makes me feel valued and energized. If I happen to alight on someone shaking his head negatively or looking distracted or bored, I feel a lurch in my stomach and a surge of defensiveness. · Go to The power of starting with ‘yes’ →

Pharrell Williams on the ‘happy’ phenomenon

Sun, Dec 7, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Pharrell Williams on the ‘happy’ phenomenon

From NY Times: Happiness is a human right. It’s neither a luxury nor a triviality. It’s given to you at birth, but you must recognize its existence. It’s as important as the breath of air in your lungs. If people aren’t happy, the world is not right. Most people think that once they have found “it” — whatever that “it” may be for them — then they will have attained “perfect” happiness. But happiness always comes from within, and many unfortunately take it for granted, or feel guilty about it or suppress happiness instead of setting it free. · Go to Pharrell Williams on the ‘happy’ phenomenon →
