If you want to change the world then spend 20 minutes a day working on self-understanding.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

The question was asked at the HBR LInkedIn group..."How can we change society? Just give one step which you feel will change society.

Change requires Courage.

Change requires knowledge of self and knowledge of others.

Change cascades like dominos:

Courage

Self-Knowledge

Self-Education

Self-Discipline

Self-Change

Self-Confidence

Confidence in Others

Teaching Others: Courage, Self-Knowledge, Self-Education, Self-Discipline, Self-Confidence

Working With Others: Creating Change For The Better 

 

This is the stuff of leadership

Biting your tongue just before it expresses something quite right but nonetheless doomed to be poorly received – that’s a good thing.

You can choose to adjust your personality so it is more pleasing and less annoying. Sometimes, the choice involves biting your tongue.

 

Benjamin Franklin

"Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain - and most fools do."

 

It's easy to make a significant change: just tell everyone you have developed an electricity intolerance.

Sure, change is tough.

But you gotta look on the bright side: if you don't like that last suggestion - when the urge to change gets too annoying, you can always watch a TV rerun.

Now, do you see the benefit in the power of positive thinking?

And, those 3 things - that’s all people do. People Only Do 3 Things: Good Habits, Bad Habits, New Things. Here's a link to explain the thinking.

 

The cornerstone of our personality, our mental attitude, shows up as the general flavour of our thoughts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We can choose from 3 mental-attitude flavours: Positivity, Negativity, & Indifference.

Positivity is the best flavour...a rich flavour in many ways.

Negativity can be hard to swallow...but, at least, it gives you something to argue against.

Indifference - so bland it's not worth writing about.

 

 

 

If you are not ready to change then don't waste energy complaining.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you are ready to change then perhaps complaining does some good: it could help you clarify the nature of the change you need to make; it could generate some constructive feedback to help you plan your change...etc.
