Atrendia Friday Video 33: What makes a good life?

by Robert Waldinger

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinyoutubeby feather

e850cb00471e6dc1172e2fdd29933bc003d969e8_2880x1620This TED videoheds light on one of the most important topics of our time: What makes a good life?

As a consultant and executive coach, I take my own medicine and ensure that I consistently reserve time for family and friends. But just like anyone else, I struggle when it’s time to close the lid when the juices are flowing, or when I “just need to get this last part done”, but as Robert Waldinger underlines, it’s our relationships that keep us happy, not future wealth or fame, and we have to continuously invest in them or they perish.

For those of us who truly love what we do, this video is a wonderful reminder that the “sacrifices” we make by spending time, on a regular uninterrupted basis, with family and friends instead of catching up on a few emails after dinner most nights or spending a weekend per month catching up on things, have significant value. You might say, the most value

I’m reminded of Stephen Covey’s Rule of the Farm: you can’t feed the chicken’s and irrigate the crops just when you have time or when you feel like it. And it takes great maturity and discipline to consistently observe this rule.

This video reminds us that it’s not the bonus, collegial pats on the back or the mention in the papers that are essential to our happiness, but contentment in our relationships — and that requires quite a bit of consistent investment.

Atrendia Friday is back! – How to run a company with (almost) no rules

by Ricardo Semler

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinyoutubeby feather
 It’s been a long time since our last video and that’s mainly because I have been super busy launching LeanMail Mobile (an iPhone app for LeanMail users), Inbox480 (automatically separates non-essential from essential mails) and developing Feemails (the end of spam).
So a new inspiring video is long overdue.
TED

In this TED video, Ricardo Semler turns the idea of how companies should be managed on its head.  How to run a company with (almost) no rules may sound like a zany idea at first, but isn’t that what we want to do?  — empower our teams and replace zillions of rules with tons of agreements that create strong bonds.

Atrendia Friday Video 29 – Everyday Leadership

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluslinkedinyoutubeby feather

fridayvideo29

In this TED video, Drew Dudley (tell me his parents didn’t name him after some fictional cowboy figure), helps us recognize the power of everyday leadership.  It’s an amazing concept that we should all aspire to.  Drew talks about a “lollypop moment”.  It’s a moment that I think many of us, as leaders and as regular “Joes”, can relate to.

An inspiring talk.
