How and Why You Should Create a Morning Routine

H

In his book Tools of Titans, Tim Ferriss collects interviews he conducted with some of the most successful entrepreneurs, athletes and film stars on the web. His objective was to look for similarities and connections in their habits, strategies and philosophies in order to see if he could find useful common ground; the idea being that if we emulate some of those habits, we might get to share in a...

What Is Social Exchange Theory?

W

Our economy is built on the idea of fair trade. We trade value for value and this allows for goods and resources to move to wherever they are most needed. Of course that’s not ultimately what happens (rather, 1% of the population somehow end up owning 90% of the wealth…) but that’s the general idea. This adheres nicely to social exchange theory: the notion that human interaction is predicated on...

Ways to Overcome Mental Blocks and Boost Creativity

Creativity is one of the most highly coveted of human traits. A creative person is someone who can come up with novel solutions to problems, create beautiful works of art, spin exciting stories and perhaps create inventions that will make them rich and improve the lives of others.

Developing Your Personal Effectiveness and Self-Management

D

When a business is deemed to be too slow or ineffectual, often management will suggest something called a ‘process fix’. This basically means that they will look at the different processes that the business uses in order to accomplish its tasks and then see how each of them can be improved upon. This is possible, seeing as most businesses or teams will effectively be able to break down what they...

Pathological Liar Vs. Compulsive Liar

P

Most of us know someone who lies a lot and there’s a good chance that at some point, we have accused them of being a ‘compulsive liar’ or a ‘pathological liar’.

Compulsive vs Pathological To answer the question simply: a pathological liar is someone who lies purposefully in order to get things their own way...

When Is Criticism Unfair? – How to Deal With People Who Unfairly Criticise You

W

Being able to take on constructive criticism is a useful skill and one that is well-worth cultivating. Being constantly showered with praise is of little use, as it doesn’t help you to identify potential mistakes you might have made, or to make adjustments to prevent them from happening again in future. The question though, is when does that criticism cross the line and become unfair? And when...

Is Talking to Yourself Normal?

I

Talking to yourself is something that can make you look a little crazy. This is something we know all-too well from our experiences with hands-free kits: often we double take before realizing that the seemingly unhinged person coming the other way down the road is actually speaking into a mic… But while talking to ourselves might seem unusual, it’s actually completely normal and even a sign that...

What Does Wishful Thinking Mean?

W

We have all been guilty of wishful thinking on occasion. Sometimes we will catch ourselves thinking whimsically about a perfect future, or looking back on things that happened through rose-tinted glasses. This is a perfectly normal and healthy activity and one that can help to make the world seem a little more tolerable even when things aren’t going according to plan. The key though, is that we...

What Causes Selfishness? – How to Deal With Selfish People

W

We all know someone who is selfish. These are the people who will make decisions that benefit them, seemingly without giving any thought to the impact this might have on others. These are the people who will take the last chip, or who will try to dictate the activities of their group of friends. Dealing with these kinds of people can be difficult but the first step to dealing with them...

What Is a SWOT Analysis? – Definition and Examples

W

Sometimes it pays to structure our thinking. While you might have a ton of great ideas, a keen insight and critical mind; even the greatest of minds will sometimes need to be given some guidance and structure. That is why ‘thinking tools’ like the SWOT analysis can be so useful. This is simply a structured approach to a problem or an idea that can help to present opportunities and pitfalls in...
