Thirty Things I’ve Learned – Nick Crocker – Medium

Fun in the Face of Crisis. Le couple : Vers un amour vrai ( Psychologies ) Le 23 juin dernier, la psychopraticienne Marie-Lise Labonté était aux côtés du psychanalyste Guy Corneau pour une conférence dans le cadre du Festival de l’Extraordinaire, intitulée « Entre passion et union mystique ».

Le couple : Vers un amour vrai ( Psychologies )

Elle vient également de clore un cycle de conférences webinaires sur le sujet du « couple ». Alan Watts - Why Your Life Is Not A Journey. Alan Watts - Why Your Life Is Not A Journey. What’s Your Story? At a recent networking event, senior managers who’d been downsized out of high-paying corporate jobs took turns telling what they had done before and what they were looking for next.

What’s Your Story?

Person after person stood up and recounted a laundry list of credentials and jobs, in chronological order. Many felt compelled to begin with their first job, some even with their place of birth. The accounting was meticulous. Most people spent their allotted two minutes (and lost the attention of those around them) before they even reached the punch line—the description of what they were seeking.

Those who did leave time to wrap up tended merely to list the four or five (disparate) things they might be interested in pursuing next. In our research and coaching on career reorientation, we’ve witnessed many people struggling to explain what they want to do next and why a change makes sense. Why You Need a Story All of us tell stories about ourselves. Your Story Has Inherent Drama What could be more dramatic?

Solitude and Leadership - William Deresiewicz

My title must seem like a contradiction. Leadership is what you are here to learn—the qualities of character and mind that will make you fit to command a platoon, and beyond that, perhaps, a company, a battalion, or, if you leave the military, a corporation, a foundation, a department of government. We need to begin by talking about what leadership really means. So I began to wonder, as I taught at Yale, what leadership really consists of. See, things have changed since I went to college in the ’80s. So what I saw around me were great kids who had been trained to be world-class hoop jumpers. That is exactly what places like Yale mean when they talk about training leaders. So, back to the novel. Faut-il prendre l’effondrement au sérieux. Les scénarios d’avenir énergétiquement vertueux, qui nous proposent de changer de modèle énergétique pour des solutions plus durables à base de solaire, d’éolien, d’hydraulique, de géothermie… (et parfois encore, non sans polémiques, de nucléaire), comme ceux que nous proposent le prospectiviste Jeremy Rifkin (@jeremyrifkin) dans La troisième révolution industrielle (voir notre article « Nous avons à nouveau un futur »), le spécialiste de génie environnemental de Stanford, Mark Jacobson (@mzjacobson), le stimulant rapport (.pdf) de l’Agence de l’environnement et de la maîtrise de l’énergie (Ademe) ou même le scénario Negawatt sont tous basés sur des déploiements industriels ambitieux en matière d’énergie renouvelable – même si tous évoquent également, d’une manière plus ou moins appuyée, l’exigence à décroître.

Elon Musk: The World's Raddest Man

PDF and ebook options: We made a fancy PDF of this post for printing and offline viewing (see a preview here), and an ebook containing the whole four-part Elon Musk series: Last month, I got a surprising phone call. Elon Musk, for those unfamiliar, is the world’s raddest man. I’ll use this post to explore how he became a self-made billionaire and the real-life inspiration for Iron Man’s Tony Stark, but for the moment, I’ll let Richard Branson explain things briefly: Whatever skeptics have said can’t be done, Elon has gone out and made real.

So no, that was not a phone call I had been expecting. A few days later, I found myself in pajama pants, pacing frantically around my apartment, on the phone with Elon Musk. For me, this project was one of the biggest no-brainers in history. Pourquoi je me lève à 5h30 tous les matins (et ce que vous gagnerez à en faire autant) — Officielle France. Il y a quelques mois, j’ai pris une décision que je n’aurais jamais cru prendre.

Pourquoi je me lève à 5h30 tous les matins (et ce que vous gagnerez à en faire autant) — Officielle France

Une décision qui allait impacter chacune de mes journées pour les prochains mois. Celle de me lever à 5h30. Tous les matins. Pourquoi je ne crois pas à l'entreprise libérée.
