Video: Growth Mindset – The power of believing that you can improve

Psychologist Carol Dweck is a pioneering researcher in the field of motivation, why people succeed or don’t and how to foster success.

Dweck, the author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, researches “growth mindset” — the idea that we can grow our brain’s capacity to learn and to solve problems. In this TED talk, she describes two ways to think about a problem that’s slightly too hard for you to solve. Are you not smart enough to solve it … or have you just not solved it yet? A great introduction to this influential field.

This is a TED Talk from November 2014. But it is a great thing to view as you make plans for future and dream about what you plan to achieve in 2016 and beyond.

I am also posting this because the hashtag #growthmindset is one of the most popular in my Twitter-world experience.

Our lives teach us who we are…

Our lives teach us who we are.
~Salman Rushdie

3S 2015 12 Salman Rushdie quote - Our lives teach us who we are

As we look forward to a New Year, it is good to look back, not just at 2015 but also at our whole lives.

What exactly did our lives teach us about ourselves, in the last year, and all of the time before that?

Think about it. I am also still thinking.
Let us share what we discover in the next few weeks.

Wishing you Success, Satisfaction, Significance and Time to Think!

Its a waste to be asking when YOU are the answer

Life has no meaning.
Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life.
It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.
~Joseph Campbell

3S 2015 11 Joseph Campbell quote we bring meaning to life

Will you find time this holiday season  to find meaning, Significance to your life?

We chase after meaning and purpose, when we ourselves are in charge of deciding what we can do, how we can add Significance to our lives.

Its not hard. You just need a bit of extra time to think what you can do and a little bit more energy to get it done.

The hardest part is the beginning. Once you have begun, whatever it is that you choose to do, you will find that you gain much, including Satisfaction, and then it will be easier to sustain.

Don’t do it as a new year resolution. Do it because you need Significance and Satisfaction in your life. Happiness will follow.

Wishing you good times this holiday season, with Success, Satisfaction and Significance

Being There for Others…

The only purpose of our lives consists in waking each other up and being there for each other.
~Johanna Paungger

3S 2015 10 Johanna Paungger quote The only purpose of our lives

We struggle to find Significance in our lives.

Lawyers, both those who are like me and those who are not like me, often have it easy with Success. But most of us can stumble when it comes to finding Satisfaction and Significance in our lives.

And this is amply clear in our personal lives. Stress, divorce, addictions, mental health issues and even suicide are not strangers to us. Many of our families are scattered–I am eternally grateful for mine–and happiness is so far away as to make it seem unreachable. And its sad because we can afford to have great families and happy lives.

What if we take a second look, and a third if you must, at what we may be getting wrong. What if we step back from the treadmill of success to consider how we can add meaning (Significance) and Satisfaction to our lives?

Can finding balance be so easy?

Not if you look at it from the other side of the fence. Not if your lifestyle calls for expensive maintenance, and a huge cash inflow each month, every month. Not of you believe money is everything, or almost everything.

But you know it has not bought you happiness. And there seems to be no chance it would in the near future either. If  this is how you feel, what have you to lose in seeking Satisfaction and Significance?

A pay cut, may be? A change in lifestyle? Perhaps a more healthy, wholesome lifestyle, where you find the time to exercise, and eat food that is really good for you. After all, what good is any money once you are dead, before your time?

And this being the holiday season, you may have more time to spend with family.

Will there ever come a time when you tell your family that…

The only purpose of our lives consists in waking each other up and being there for each other.
~Johanna Paungger

I wish you Success, Satisfaction and Significance for the holidays. But more importantly, I wish you the Time you need to reconsider and to reset your priorities so that you can add more Satisfaction and Significance to your life.

I would love to hear from you

Bob
