Gode manerer – en færdighed der skal læres …

oktober 31, 2006

Det er muligt, at vi lever i en ny tid.

Det er muligt, at vi må omstille os til de nye tider.

Og det er muligt, at jeg er ved at blive gammel og tvær.

Anyways, så er en sund opdragelse og gode manerer ikke at foragte. Og det er mig ganske enkelt ubegribeligt, at der er så mange forældre, der ikke tager sig sammen og “lærer” deres små prinsesser og prinser, hvad god opførsel er.

Hvis de har så forbandet travlt med at tjene penge og herefter købe sig til aflad hos deres børn, så skulle de måske overveje om børn i det hele taget passer ind i deres livsstil. Børn tager tid. Punktum. Og har man ikke den tid, der skal til som opdrager og gammeldags læringsmester i gode manerer, så skån venligst os andre for jeres afkom …

Det handler om at finde din passion – så er der nemlig chance for at du får succes

oktober 31, 2006

Det er ikke succes som sådan, der gør os til lykkelige mennnesker. Det er snarere den anden vej rundt. Du skal finde ud af, hvad du godt kan lide at arbejde med og finder fornøjelse ved … så er der nemlig en chance for at du også får succes udadtil.

Men måske er det vigtigste, at vi lærer at fokusere mere på “den indre succes”. Det er nemlig noget, vi i høj grad kan give os selv. Hvis vi kun kan blive tilfredse, hvis andre roser eller anerkender os, så bliver vi let afhængige af andre. Og det bliver dem, der afgør, om du er en succes eller en fiasko.

Tænk bare på, hvor mange, der baserer deres “værdi” på størrelsen af den løncheck, de får.

Men penge er ikke alt … selv om det desværre er det budskab både vores nuværende regering og reklameindustrien forsøger at “belære” og “indoktrinere” ind i hovederne på os dag ud og dag ind!

Virkelig, reel og meningsfuld succes kan man ikke købe sig til. Den må man arbejde sig til. Så enkelt er det. Selv om det i sig selv er hårdt arbejde.

The learning mindset

oktober 30, 2006

Zig Ziglar fortæller her om, hvordan man lærer “bottom-up”. Et af hovedbudskaberne i artiklen er, at man bliver nødt til at acceptere, at man ikke bliver verdensmester i nye discipliner fra den ene dag til den anden. Man bliver nødt til at se på alle nederlag og fejltrin som skridt på vejen mod “at kunne mestre” noget. Og det kræver ydmyghed og vedholdenhed.

Doing Poorly Until You Learn To Do Better

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. When I was a
youngster I got into a number of fist fights on the school
grounds.

Now fighting was obviously frowned on by all teachers, but
in those days kids settled differences between themselves
and there was never any thought–regardless of the outcome
of the tussle, which in most cases lasted just two or three
blows–of getting a knife or a baseball bat, certainly not a
gun, to get even with the victor. No, once the scuffle ended
it was all over.

I had many such encounters and actually over a period of
time I became quite effective as a “playground gladiator.”
Then, when I was in the 7th grade I decided to go out for
the boxing team.

I was confident I would be successful in that arena as well.
At that point I weighed the tremendous total of 83 pounds,
and on the boxing team they tried to match us up with people
of equal size.

One of my classmates was Joe Stringer, who weighed 63
pounds. Truthfully, I felt kind of sorry for him because
there I was, a big bruiser outweighing him 20 pounds. When
they laced on the gloves I knew I’d have to be careful not
to hurt him.

At the sound of the bell, within three seconds Joe’s left
had landed squarely on the end of my nose. Apparently he
thought I had a poor memory because about three seconds
later he landed another. Throughout the round he landed
again and again and again.

Not only was it hurting physically, it was also terribly
embarrassing. There this skinny kid was taking me to the
cleaners!

The problem was very simple. Although he was much smaller,
he had been on the boxing team for two years and had
actually been the 60-pound state champion. It was really a
slaughter, if you wanted to put it that way.

The good news is after a couple days of this treatment,
Coach Perminter took mercy on me, took me aside, and started
teaching me some of the finer points of self-defense and
making certain that when I threw my right, my left hand
would come up to protect my chin.

He taught me how to duck my shoulder so if that side was
exposed, Joe’s blows would glance of the shoulder and not
land squarely on my nose.

After about a week of instruction, I started to become the
hit-or instead of the hit-ee–and that was a lot more fun.
Within two weeks, because of my physical size, we were
exchanging blows equally, and in another couple weeks I was
dominating because I had learned.

I had been embarrassed in the process, but I’m glad the
coach took pity on me and I was willing to do something
poorly–which I initially did–because it was the only way I
was going to get better and better.

The reality is, regardless of whatever it is you do, you’re
not going to automatically become really good at everything.
There is a process. But when we understand the philosophy
that anything worth doing is worth doing poorly–until you
can learn to do it well–your progress in life is almost
guaranteed. Think about it.

Den lærende leder …

oktober 30, 2006

If you’re a leader, and you’re not staying ahead of the times by learning new things in new ways, you’re soon to be an extinct leader. And if you’re extinct, you’re dead.

— Phil Gerbyshak

Den lærende leder er en person, der virkelig tør lære nyt. Og som sørger for at gøre det hver dag. Han (hun i disse M/K-tider) har en god chance for at blive en endnu bedre leder. Og dermed overleve.

Desuden er lærende ledelse og lærende ledere forudsætningen for, at vi kan skabe lærende organsationer. Det er naturligvis ikke nok – for en sand lærende organisation kræver at alle – høj som lav – lærer…. Sker det ikke, så dør organisationen. For læring er nødvendigt for at en organisation kan omstille sig.

Lærende ledere, lærende ledelse og lærende organisationer – og ikke mindst lærende medarbejdere – er kort og godt den essentielle ingrediens i INNOVATION.
