Learn To Gain A Stronger Awareness For Life And Achieve More On A Daily Process With The Power Of Focus. THE POWER OF FOCUS How To Beat Procrastination And Achieve More. We are often pushed like the wind from one task to the next and regularly lose our ways in life. This can be all change with simple adjusts and a change in habits. Learn to create daily goals How to achieve more. Find an accountability partner and have public accountability. Change your day and become a task master. Protect your time. How To Create Our Daily Goals You're busy. I'm busy. Everyone's busy. Yet despite this bustle, we regularly don't feel especially productive from day to day. Entire weeks can flash by in a blur of meaningless emails, conferences, and admin tasks while the "massive stuff" is going untended. As the nineteenth-century philosopher Henry David Thoreau wrote, "It isn't enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?"If we want to take back control of our workday schedules and priorities, the simplest way to do it is by way of relentlessly wondering how we're spending our time. However, what questions ought we to ask? I reached out to a handful of normal 99U individuals and the 99U convention audio system to get their insights on daily energy and assignment control. Here's what they said:From Leo Babauta of Zen behavior:What are you doing in this moment?The simple act of becoming more aware of what you're interested in helps you to recognize what you need it to be - growing something extraordinary. Too often, we get distracted or get caught in unimportant tasks - coming back to the moment will often assist.From Tony Schwartz of the strength project:Are you scheduling time each day to have awareness without interruption?Set aside at the least one period throughout the day - no more than 90 minutes at a time (and as close to that as feasible) - to have awareness without interruption. Time, in other words, to do something essential, however, no longer urgent - to put something in writing, replicate, strategize, consider, paint etc., on a long-term project.The key here is control of attention. We're so distracted, and we're feeding that feeling on every occasion we switch between responsibilities. We need to (re)educate our attention. Focused interest can serve obligations - that's the left hemisphere at work, doing rational, deductive, logical, step-by using-step questioning.The other sort of attention, which serves creativity, is where the right hemisphere is dominant. That calls for deeply quieting the thoughts. It was Betty Edwards (drawing on the proper aspect of the mind) who located that one powerful manner to prompt a shift from left to the right hemisphere is to copy an upside-down line drawing. Or to genuinely count to a certain number.But there are lots of approaches to activate the shift: take a walk in nature, go for a run, and concentrate on a classical tune... even take a bath. It's repetition that causes the shift. The more we teach any muscle - which includes the right hemisphere - the more potent and more lively it becomes. This all can be achieved here with the change of habit you can very easily tap into your power of great focus. Download Now!

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.
"A practical and applied approach to focus group research that will help neophyte and experienced researchers plan, conduct, and report the findings from focus groups, The Power of Focus Groups is rooted firmly in social science theory and research design. Each chapter emphasizes conducting high quality focus groups that produce good data rather than interesting information that may be distorted because of design and moderation flaws. The manual follows the natural flow of focus group research, and includes chapters on communicating in groups and special topics as well. You will find sample materials for each stage of the research process in the Appendix at the end of the report. A bibliography provides resources for further reading and research."

Die neue Formel zum Erfolg: Leidenschaft Ausdauer und Zuversicht Eine Mischung aus Ausdauer und Leidenschaft, nicht IQ, Startbedingungen oder Talent entscheidet über den Erfolg eines Menschen. Diese These hat die Neurowissenschaftlerin und Psychologin Angela Duckworth in dem Wort GRIT zusammengefasst, das im Englischen so viel wie Biss oder Mumm heißt, und hat damit weltweit Aufsehen erregt. Auf Basis ihrer eigenen Geschichte, von wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen und anhand ungewöhnlicher Leistungsbiografien ist sie dem Geheimnis von erfolgreichen Menschen auf den Grund gegangen, seien sie Sportler, Bankmanager oder Comiczeichner. Sie weist nach, dass nicht "Genie", sondern eine einzigartige Kombination aus Begeisterungsfähigkeit und langfristigem Durchhaltevermögen darüber entscheidet, ob man seine Ziele erreicht. Mit zahlreichen Beispielen, die jeder auf seine Situation anwenden kann, erläutert Angela Duckworth das Konzept der motivierten Beharrlichkeit. Und sie fordert dazu auf, im Wissen um GRIT Lernen und Bildung neu zu denken.
