¿Qué importa ahora?

¿QUE IMPORTA AHORA? es un libro organizado por Seth Godin donde más de 70 pensadores comparten su idea de lo que será el nuevo año, exponiendo conceptos y claves para seguir evolucionando.

Es una lectura ágil y motivante que recomiendo para estas navidades. Así lo resume su creador;

"Más que nunca, necesitamos una forma distinta de pensar, una forma útil de focalizar y la energía necesaria para cambiar el juego. Espero que el nuevo e-book que he organizado, os inicie en este camino."

Una manera positiva de alimentar tu mente. Los siguientes conceptos me han gustado especialmente:

GENEROSITY
"If you make a difference, you also make a connection. 
You interact with people who want to be interacted with
and you make changes that people respect and yearn for."
(Seth Godin.)

CONNECTED
"We walk the streets with our heads down staring
into 3-inch screens while the world whisks by
doing the same. And yet we’re convinced we are
more connected to each other than ever before."
(Howard Mann)

VISION
"Leadership is more than influence. It is
about reminding people of what it is we are trying
to build—and why it matters. It is about painting a
picture of a better future. It comes down to."
(Michael Hyatt)
 

ENRICHMENT
"We are all on a search – a search for more meaning in our lives."
(Rajesh Setty)

SPEAKING
"Speaking soon? Keep this in mind: people at events are hungry for authentictiy.
Saying something you might not have said elsewhere is a good way to find your
authentic voice."
(Mark Hurts)

STRENGHTS
"Forget about working on your weaknesses; Focus on
supporting your strengths.
We hate doing things we're not good at, so we avoid them.
But my strenghts -ah, I love my strenghts [...] When we love
what we do, we do more and more, and pretty soon we're pretty
good at it."
(Marti Barletta)

POKER (BUSINESS IS A GAME)
EDUCATION
"Never stop learning. Read books. Learn from others who have done it before.
Learn by doing. Theory is nice, but nothing replaces actual experience.
Have fun. The game is a lot more enjoyable when you're trying to do more
than just make money."
(Tony Hsieh)



POWER
"Stop waiting around for bosses and companies to
get better and complaining about how are you
treated. Build the skills—and use them—that will
permit you to create the environment in which you
want to live."
(Jeffrey Pfeffer)


HARMONY
"In the true sense of karma, to achieve harmony,
you must always do the right thing with no eye on
a reward. The reward will come because there is trust on the other side."
(Jack Covert.)

TOUGH-MINDEDNESS
"We live in the age of distraction, of Twitter and
multi-tasking and short attention spans. Even
these micro-essays are part of it. Whereas what
produces real work (and happiness for each of us,
in my opinion) is depth, focus, concentration and
commitment over time."
(Steven Pressfield)


EVANGELISM
"Ignore pedigrees. Don't focus on the people with big titles and
big reputations. Help anyone who can help you."
(Guy Kawasaki)

EMPATHY

"We have it in our power to begin the world again
by implementing the ancient principle that is often
called the Golden Rule:
Always treat all others as you would wish to be treated yourself."
(Karen Armstong)


CHANGE
"You’re probably trying to change things at home or
at work. Stop agonizing about what’s not working.
Instead, ask yourself, “What’s working well right now,
and how can I do more of it?."
(Chip and Dan Heath)

PASSION
"If you think you haven't found your passion yet, you're
probably expecting it to be overwhelming.
Instead, just notice what excites you and what scares you
on a small moment-to-moment level.
You grow (and thrive!) by doing what excites you and what
scares you everyday, not by trying to find your passsion."
(Derek Sivers)


CONFIDENCE
"The secret to unbreakable confidence is a
lifestyle of emotional/mental diet and exercise.
1. Feed your mind good stuff
2. Exercise your gratitude muscle."
(Tim Sanders)


OPEN-SOURCE DNA
"There will surely be people who will not share any part of their
genome with anyone under any circumstances. that’s okay.
But great benefits will accrue to those who are willing to share
their genome. By making their biological source code open, a
person allows others to “work” on their kernel, to mutually
find and remedy bugs, to share investigations into rare bits, to
pool behavior results, to identify cohorts and ancestor codes.
Since 99.99% of the bits are shared, why not?."

It will become clear to those practicing open-source personal
genomics that genes are not destiny; they are our common wealth.
(Kevin Kelly)


EXPERTISE
"If you keep everything in your head then you
can’t expect anyone else to appreciate your genius
or trust your knowledge - they don’t know it exists.
Ignorance can be an advantage, and feedback an
incredibly useful tool. It allows you to share the
journey, which helps make writing accessible to
beginners."
(Aaron wall)

DIFFERENCE
"The hyperlinked world—the Web—is made for
this way of networked knowing.
A hyperlinked world includes all differences and disagreements,
and connects them to one another. We are all
smarter for having these differences only a click
away. The challenge now is to learn how to
evaluate, incorporate, respect, and learn from
them. If we listen only to those who are like us, we
will squander the great opportunity before us: To
live together peacefully in a world of unresolved differences."
(David Weinberger)


FOCUS
"Focus. Most important". That's what Mr. Miyagi said.
(Todd Sattersten)

LEAP
"Show don't tell To write fiction and to have faith is to take
an imaginative leap. And because life is always full of doubts
and fears, to actis to take that leap".
(Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie)

WOMEN
"If you’re a man running a business, and if the
power and influence females wield hasn’t
completely registered on your radar, well, then,
what we’ve got here is a failure to communicate."
(Paco Underhill)


PRODUCTIVITY
"Don't worry too much about getting things done.
Make things happen."
(Gina trapani)



SOCIAL SKILLS
"Getting or giving anything is about social skills. The
world is about being comfortable where you are and
making people feel comfortable, and that’s what social
skills are. What’s important is to be kind, and be
gracious and do it in ways that make people want to do
that for someone else."
(Penelope Trunk)


I'M SORRY
"Mistakes happen. How you apologize matters.
Don’t bullshit people - just say “I’m sorry.” And mean it."
(Jason Fried)


SLEEP
"I have had to learn to unplug and recharge. To trade multi-tasking
for uni-tasking and -ocasionally- no-tasking. It's left me healthier happier,
and more able to try to make a difference in the world . My eyes have been opened to the value of regularly closing them."
(Arianna Huffington)


KNOWING
"There is no such thing as boring knowledge.
There is only boring presentation."
(Dan Roam)


GOVERNMENT 2.0
"The secret learned by technology providers is to spend
less time providing services for citizens, and to spend
more time providing services to developers. Every
successful technology platform, from the personal
computer and the internet to the iPhone, has been
profoundly generative: a small investment in open
infrastructure that others can build on turns into a vast
cornucopia of services.
This is the right way to frame the question of
'Government 2.0.' "
(Tim O'Reilly)


GUMPTION
"These corners we paint ourselves into, it’s no way to live.
There’s no adventure here, no passion, no hunger for
change. Remember that relentless optimism you once
had? The goals you wished to achieve, before settling in?
They’re still there. You need a nudge to find them; a
little gumption."
(J.C Hutchins)
