    Progress possibility? 

    Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. Think about it.

    One “keystone habit” to transform your life… 

    What makes you different from other people? What is it that keeps you from doing what you want to do in life? Underperforming? Not enough time? Stress? Fatigue or low energy? Not feeling up to the challenge? Procrastinating?

    Did you know that certain good habits are so powerful that they work their way through your whole life, changing everything for the better? That’s the concept of a “keystone habit,” described by Charles Duhigg in his fascinating book, “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business.”

    The secret to a “keystone habit” is that you commit to one thing you will do as a top priority. To truly succeed at that one thing means that other things in your life have to line up in support of it. Therefore, focusing on that top priority has a ripple effect that changes everything. Certain habits lend themselves to this keystone effect-when you do them well they start to remake other patterns in your life… go out and do it today!

    Idea development and innovation? 

    Idea development it’s all about trust. People collaborate by respecting and trusting each other. The reason we shake hands is to show each other that you don’t have any hidden weapons.

    We look each other in the eye to ensure that we can work and perform together.

    Passion and leadership! 

    Passion is one great force that unleashes creativity, because if you’re passionate about something, then you’re willing to take risks. You may be the person doing the creative work or leading the creative efforts of others by inspiring insight, ideas or innovation and get people together even when those new ideas are strange, misunderstood, challenging or threatening! #NPx

    Crafting as an Innovative Thinking Skill. 

    F. Scott Fitzgerald once said, “The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in the mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

    Innovation requires us to shed either/or thinking and see the whole as inclusive of opposition and open to a third (or fourth or fifth) solution. The practice of crafting allows us to live with and resolve paradox and contradiction.

    Unlike the traditional analysis of business thinking— which requires us to break down problems into separate pieces, known facts, and current assumptions— crafting is about synthesis, integration, and possibility. Through what is called abductive reasoning, we can make intuitive connections among seemingly unrelated information and begin to shape order out of chaos.

    Leadership for innovation? 

    Leaders must learn how to create an organisational climate where others apply innovative thinking to solve problems and develop new products and services. It is about growing a culture of innovation, not just hiring a few creative outliers. How can you help others to think differently and work in new ways to face challenges? What can be done to innovate when all resources are stressed and constrained? How can you stay alive and stay ahead of the competition?

    An innovative approach to leadership? 

    This means to bring new thinking and different actions to how you lead, manage, and go about your work. How can you think differently about your role and the challenges you and your organization face? What can you do to break open entrenched, intractable problems? How can you be agile and quick in the absence of information or predictability?

    Poor performance? 

    The most obvious effect of sleep deprivation is on performance. Tiredness slows you down physically and mentally – reducing your output and productivity. It will also impair your ability to think clearly and rationally – affecting the quality of your work and the decisions you make. If you’re aiming for a leadership position, not being able to make good decisions will be the death of your leadership dreams. And if you’re currently in a leadership position, poor decision-making could result in being demoted or worse.

    Innovation leadership! 

    For centuries people assumed that economic growth resulted from the interplay between capital and labor. Today we know that these elements are outweighed by a single critical factor: innovation. Corporation and Governments need to approach innovation leadership in a unique way. They must focus on the power of bringing differences together to create new products, services, and new levels of contribution.
