In the book Tom Peters stated that managers and supervisors can improve their chances of success by remembering to make friends along the way, and if they couldn’t make friends then try because it’s also considered as a learnable skill. Even though the book was about a 538-page book, its smart messages are short, valuable and to the point. Tom Peters is known for making his books very interesting and I can say for myself that his books are one of the best I’ve ever read. In the book, Tom uses a good variety of words to grab the reader’s attention. The entire book provides tips on how to become an expert business leader.
It is not our fault. We are all human and they are our weaknesses. We need to be disciplined enough to see past that and aim for RESULTS... otherwise all you have left are REASONS. The good news is you can achieve almost any goal you set for yourself if you have self discipline. The even better news is self discipline can be learned.
Never personalize criticism As an employee in an organization, whether receiving or giving criticism, it should be grounded on observed results and actions, and not intent. Therefore, criticism should be accepted and given unemotionally, considered for its pertinence and validity, and implemented when the actions has been justified. Therefore, for Dave Green in his new group, he should not be too defensive or sensitive when receive feedback from other group members. He should consider the received information as intended for getting different results and not a personal attack (Watson, 2013). 2.
Out in the world, many try to achieve or accomplish and do great things in life but do not make that achievement happen causing them to fail. When they fail they do not know why they failed and do not know what to do about the failure. In the book The Achievement Habit, by Bernard Roth, he talks about how to educate people through striving in life and accomplishing things and being successful in life. He pushes people to their limit to achieve something that the person would not think of achieving. In chapter 2, “Reasons are Bullshit” Roth argues that reasons are excuses and they are stopping people from being their best that they can be.
I agree with Horace because our inner potentials are brought out only when we face difficulties and misfortunes in life because adversities gives the opportunity to build a character with our inner hidden potentials to overcome our adversities. Regardless of how clever and sharp or how lucky we are, we encounter struggles, challenges and difficulties at times. It is in the very nature of adversity to bring out the best in man, develop his abilities, and lead him to a path of prosperity and progress. For instance Walt Disney once said “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me….You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.” Walt Disney returned home when he was seventeen and told his parents that he was going to be an artist. His father didn 't tolerate Walt’s
The “Book of Job” from the Old Testament also shows the ignorance that is apparent in the world as common people tend to stick to what they know. While the “Book of Job” focuses on an allegorical story of learning to live in the fear of God, it also shows the importance of understanding the complexity of life. People live in ignorance, because our leaders live in ignorance. For the people to move toward a better future of understanding and prosperity, leaders should be wise and articulate in the subject of philosophy. Plato argues for the idea of philosopher kings as he mentions in The Republic, from which the “Allegory of the Cave” comes from.
In closing, the teacher is an authority figure, but the participation of the student is predominantly passive despite this. For one thing, the student will learn how to make interrogative and negative sentences, memorize irregular verbs, study modal verbs, learn how to form the perfect tense, etc., but hardly ever understands the use of these structures in conversation. In the case of language learning, one may be able to recite the fact when specifically asked, but is unlikely to use this knowledge in conversation. Importantly, Krashen insists that language acquisition does not require extensive use of conscious grammatical rules and does not require tedious drill. All things weighed, it seems reasonable for Krashen to assume that acquisition is far more
Whenever he asked us to write essays he put comments on it – not just pertaining to errors but he comments on the content of our essays. Although he underlined and checks our grammar use he didn’t used it as a criteria in our grade. Yes, he made sure to point us our errors but we still get high grades from that. He is my ideal professor because he doesn’t put us down just by noticing our mistakes and he always made sure that what we write is important and it is still valid even though it’s not perfect. I love that he accepts creative and technical answers and I think that is what all professors should be because every student have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Even though people can 't help but let things get to them, they can shape there perception into something that can help them instead of focusing on things that bring them down because it will help them be more successful , they won 't focus on the negative , and it can help them live a better life . In The Achievement Habit, Bernard Roth persuades his readers that there life has no meaning unless they give it meaning. It 's a very unusual message for an author to send to his readers but throughout the chapter he uses the rhetorical triangle ethos, logos & pathos to really get the audience to understand his message. Many people let a certain situation ruin there day, and Roth explains why life is just simply better without giving it meaning. Roth states that he 's a Professor at Stanford University and has been teaching for 52 years.
It seems to take so little effort to hear a speaker’s words, but this isn’t listening. The kind of practice we need in the techniques listed above will require that we monitor our habits and actively work to improve them. Even when a college student consciously pays attention when listening, outside distractions can break his concentration. Memory games improve concentration skills by requiring players to recall images, sequences and patterns. To play a listening-based memory game among a group of students, begin a story and then instruct the group to take turns adding to the story.
