cabaz da semana (III)

estamos com um pé no ano novo – mas a cabeça ainda pensa em 2017.

eis alguns dos artigos que fizeram parte das minhas leituras da última semana do ano. até parece que são coisas antigas, “do ano passado”. mas não. todas elas pensam no futuro – que é agora.

 

(I)

“We offer one last piece of advice to philosophy departments that have not already embraced curricular diversity. For demographic, political and historical reasons, the change to a more multicultural conception of philosophy in the United States seems inevitable. Heed the Stoic adage: “The Fates lead those who come willingly, and drag those who do not.”

“How do you transform your customer’s sales experience, so it is different and more desirable than your competitors, and adds value to your brand? First, you have to change the way your sales force influences and sells to them. Then, change the way your sellers communicate how your company can deliver faster, better and cheaper solutions than competitors.”

 

(III)

In this delightful talk, philosopher Yann Dall’Aglio explores the universal search for tenderness and connection in a world that’s ever more focused on the individual. As it turns out, it’s easier than you think. A wise and witty reflection on the state of love in the modern age. In French with subtitles.

 

(IV)

“We’ve surveyed and assessed more than 35,000 leaders from thousands of companies across more than 100 countries, and found that 73% of leaders feel distracted from their current task either “some” or “most” of the time.

We also found that 67% of leaders describe their minds as cluttered, which means they have a lot of thoughts and a lack of clear priorities. As a result, 65% of respondents fail to complete their tasks. The biggest sources of distraction are: demands of other people (26%); competing priorities (25%); general distractions (13%); and too big of a workload (12%). Not surprisingly, 96% of leaders we surveyed said that “enhanced focus” would be valuable or extremely valuable.”

“Good writing is not a natural gift. You have to learn to write well.”
