Book Review – Reaching Your Next Summit!: 9 Vertical Lessons for Leading with Impact

Manley Feinberg’s book, Reaching Your Next Summit!, teaches valuable lessons on leadership and change. I work in the information technology field, and I have found the book to be very helpful.

什麼會拉響你的警笛

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 在某個地方,有人在做某些會引起你注意的事情,煽動你去採取行動。 在某個地方有某個人正在: 拿你的份額 浪費機會 插隊前進 在惡霸的手中受苦 侵略你的領土 宣布截止日期 分享突發新聞 不尊重你的團體 餓了沒法子 說長道短 誤解你的話 沒有提供機會 誹謗你相信的事業 寂寞的過日子 走捷徑 當殘酷的受害者 殘酷他人 給點東西 挑選獲獎者 尋求幫助 哪一種對你來講是要緊的,有機會讓人去觸怒你,或是更可能推你去採取行動? 哪一種會讓你轉過頭來,引起你的注意,甚至打破你的節奏? 我們通常只注意到我們所關心的事情,也努力去忽視其餘對我們不重要的事。 您可以通過更改您所注意到的事,來更改您所關心的內容。

事後決定

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 評論家們渴望從別人做出的複雜決定中挑骨頭。 那個總理,那個老闆,甚至那個足球教練都顯然是無能的。如果他們只聽了評論家的金玉良言,他們會比現在更上層樓。 當然,這些評論家在自己的生活中也有很多麻煩去做出一些不那麼複雜的決定。比如說像樣攜帶錯誤的信用卡,買錯了股票,或是投資在錯誤的房地產上。 甚至其中有些人在決定晚飯吃什麼時也都有困難。 做複雜的決策是一種技能,這是可以學的,有些人也許會比其他人做的更好。做決策毫無疑問地會涉及本能,而且還需要收集些似乎無關緊要的信息,忽略看似緊急的信息,耐心地考慮長期而不只是短期的影響。 最重要的是那些評論家在這些領域中的每一個項目都有糟糕的記錄。 在大多數的情況下,要做出好的決定都要從對你自己作出決定的承諾開始。這是很難的一部分。只有在你確定用勇氣和作出決定的承諾之後,你才可能會選擇最好的路徑。
