How to Find Happiness Through Money
By Wallace Henley
It’s not what money can buy, but how people use their wealth that brings happiness say two academics cited in a Wall Street Journal report.[1] Professors Ryan Howell (San Francisco State University) and Thomas Gilovich (Cornell) arrived at the same conclusion independently. There is a “huge misforecast,” says Prof. Howells. “People think that experiences are only going to provide temporary happiness,” so they continue purchasing tangible items believing them to be more useful over a longer period of time.
The Power of Words
By Gary Selman
Words are the building blocks that pave the road to our destiny. Words shape and determine our thinking; our thinking shapes and determines our emotions; our emotions shape and determine our decisions; our decisions shape and determine our actions; our actions shape and determine our habits; our habits shape and determine our character and our character shapes and determines our destiny. “From the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach is satisfied; he is satisfied by the yield of his lips. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits” (Pro 18:20-21).
Crucial Conversations
By Michael Chung
Communication is the basic foundation for all human connection. There are moments in a relationship, institution, or organization that are vital in taking the next step of progress and carry a disproportionate amount of influence. Human and corporate destiny can rest on the ability of individuals to communicate what they are thinking and feeling to others who can appropriate change.
Do You Have the Time?
By Douglas Gehrman
“Why, yes. It’s 8:45.” “Thanks, Dad, but I was actually wondering if you had time to help me with my school project.” “Sorry, son, but I have a board presentation tomorrow and need to concentrate on that right now. Maybe later.” I almost always had priorities at work that took precedent over family activities. Once the family understood, I didn’t get many more requests for my time.
Leadership Horizons: Leaders overcome entropy III
By Wallace Henley
(This is the Part 3 of Henley’s Leaders Overcome Entropy series) Entropy Stage Entropy is the state of being in sustained orbital decay. Entropy takes over when orbital decay goes uncorrected. Stephen G. Haines, in his book, The Manager’s Pocket Guide to Systems Thinking and Learning, says “(a)ll business problems conform to the laws of inertia—the longer you wait, the harder the problem is to correct.” This applies to organizations as well, be they churches or Bible classes. Organizational entropy, based on Haines’ definition, “is the tendency for any system to run down and eventually become inert.”
Leadership Horizons: Leaders overcome entropy II
By Wallace Henley
(This is Part II of Henley’s Leaders Overcome Entropy series) WHAT A LAUNCH IT WAS: Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong and Rosemary Clooney all bumping Ed Sullivan off his hallowed Sunday night spot for “The Edsel Show.” Ratings soared. The Edsel sponsored “Wagon Train,” and the country buzzed about Ford’s new car.
Leadership Horizons: Leaders overcome entropy - I
By Wallace Henley
Superman, we are told, leaped tall buildings with a single bound. The leotard-clad cape-swirling hero defied and overcame the law of gravity. Leaders, who always knew people expected the super human from them, do the same: they overcome entropy. If they don’t, something may be lacking in their leadership skills, as was the case of a former American political leader. An aide described his boss this way: "Lacking something [major] to do, he falls victim to entropy, which was always his biggest problem … unless he had a goal, he could never organize himself — and then entropy took over and he became sullen and disorganized and confused."
