Stupiphanies: Lessons for leaders | portent.com


as it turns out, this gets my feet wet

Every now and then I have these epiphanies so blindingly obvious that, when I point them out, people look at me like I’m a hapless dolt.

I call these ‘stupiphanies.’ Most of mine relate to leadership, either as a parent or a CEO. A few I’ve had in the last month are particularly worth sharing:

Stupiphany 1: Taking care of yourself is part of your job

I’ve been working absurdly hard for about two months now: My daily schedule started at 5:30 AM and generally ended at 9:30 PM, with little or no break or pause, except on weekends, when I’d collapse in a stupor. I also logged roughly 30,000 miles in air travel in 6 weeks. I’m sure travel veterans pish posh such tiny numbers, but for me, that’s a lot.

If you’re a CEO or President or Dad or whatever, you may think that by working more, you’re doing more of your job.

Untrue. Part of every leader’s job is to remain upright when necessary, prone when healthy and sane at all times.

If you don’t, your body and mind have a funny way of saying, “Cut the crap, idiot.”

For me, this moment came Tuesday, in an indoor cycling training class I do. The coach put up a course for us to ride on our CompuTrainers and said “go.” If you know cyclists, you know that where there is more than one, it’s a race. Three of us launched into a testosterone-fueled slapfight. I, as the slowest, had to pedal my brains out to keep up.

At the end of the class, I blinked away the stars and spots and I climbed off my bike.

Crack, said some part of my anatomy below my knees.

What the hell was that, I wondered?

I’m your ankle, dumbass

My ankle didn’t actually say that, of course. Instead, it sent little needles up and down my right leg.

Verdict? Dunno. Something strained/sprained/split in a way I’ve never done before, for no particular reason.

Basically, my body said Enough, Ian. You want to go non-stop for weeks? Fine. But you’ll do it with a pronounced limp.

Thanks to my stupidity, I’m now missing our most excellent snow fort building competition tomorrow. I can’t lead my troops into brave and slushy battle, then hide behind them while giggling madly. Fail.

Taking care of yourself is part of your job. Do it. Otherwise your body will make you.

3 Ways to Get More Time Out of Less


 |  | inc.com

You can achieve more in a constrained market without running your employees into the ground. These three steps will get your team focused on the work that really drives growth.

Across the country, businesses are being pushed to do more with less. Typically this has taken the shape of longer hours, later nights, and a big group of unhappy employees. Achieving in a constrained market should not mean spending more time at the office doing less exciting work; it means that you should stop wasting time.

There are three steps managers and staff can take toward a more efficient, more productive organization. By 1) identifying and focusing on your biggest priorities, 2) completing two objectives every week, and 3) outsourcing work, you will find a smoother running organization that employees are happy to contribute to every day.

1. Identify and focus on your biggest priorities. Leer más “3 Ways to Get More Time Out of Less”

Female Cyclists Say They’d Give Up Sex Before Biking ***UPPPS AHH WTF***

Since few commuter bikes have pedal clips, you can see there’s a decided slant toward sports cyclists in the people Bicycling surveyed. But that’s okay. A cyclist is a cyclist, and most of us seem to ride for that unique combination of fitness, fun, and stress reduction. An overwhelming majority (79%) of the bike people surveyed this year by Bicycling Magazine said they ride bikes to stay healthy, and 73% that they bike for fun, while 67% ride to reduce stress.

My favorite stat – 3% of cyclists facing a flat tire would ‘call a friend.’ Probably part of the same female minority that wouldn’t give up sex for cycling. My favorite cyclists group – the Surly riders, according to the infographic, they seemed to be those most likely to ride outside in the cold, to drink beer post-ride, and to like tandem rides.

What do you think – could biking be better as a stress reducer than sex for women?

Bicycling Magazine/Screen capture

In the next issue of Bicycling Magazine (March 2012), 58% of women from a survey of 5,000 cyclists said they would choose cycling over sex if they had to abandon one of these two pleasures for a month.

“The results of our Reader’s Choice poll provide an intriguing glimpse at just how much cyclists love to ride – sometimes even preferring it to sex,” said a press release on the survey.

But then again, 50% of males said they’d also prefer to give up sex for a month rather than riding their bike.

Bicycling’s 2012 “Reader’s Choice” poll is intended to offer a glimpse into the minds of cyclists, covering everything from “motivation to movies, food to fashion, endurance to embarrassment, and of course, how they feel about sex vs. cycling.” But then again, are we pressed to make this strange either/or choice? Probably not very likely.

Other questions on the survey seemed to indicate that female bicyclists would choose to ride with Patrick Dempsey if they could pick a celebrity biking partner; men would ride with Gisele Bunchen. A majority of women preferred that male cyclists shave their legs than leave on their natural hair, and a majority of both sexes also said that their most embarrassing moment when cycling was failing to clip out of their pedals on time.

The Real Secret to Freelance Success

Why do so many freelancers fail while others who face even greater obstacles succeed? Is it natural talent? Is it hard work? Is it sheer persistence?

I find these questions absolutely fascinating. That’s why I’ve spent a great part of my adult life studying freelance success.

But it wasn’t until I recently read Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers that much of what I had learned came together into one unifying principle:

Success only happens at the intersection of preparation and opportunity!

To better explain this, let’s take this discussion outside of freelancing for a minute because there’s a fascinating lesson here.

What Kind of Freelancer are You?

* Jason Finnerty

How many times have you heard the old fable, the tortoise and the hare? Slow and steady wins the race. Right….

From what I’ve read here on FreelanceSwitch, it seems like most freelancers are hares – but they are frequently running more than one race at a time. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m in this camp, and I know that this isn’t necessarily a good thing. Whether my deadline is tomorrow or next Tuesday, I find a way to hit it, and sometimes I think it might be the panic factor that promotes the creativity. [Más…]

But I doubt that this is the only way. I’m sure it’s not the best way.

Kristen has shared a few tips here on how the clients can get quality results on rush projects, and Joel posted a poll to find out how the readers on FSw handle their deadlines.

What I would like to know is, what works best for you – slow and steady, one client at a time, or fast and furious, racing to the deadline? What tools do you use to keep yourself on track, without worrying about your ever-escalating blood pressure?

Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes gets Amp-ed up for new season

If you were mixing it up with Terrell Owens, Donovan McNabb and Hakeem Olajuwon, you’d probably need an Amp energy drink, too. In this season of Spike TV’s Pros vs. Joes, the caffeine-spiked beverage will be littered around the set as regular guys compete against sports legends. (They probably won’t have to be persuaded to drink up). Amp gets product integration, along with various on-screen signage, as part of its advertising deal with the popular show, which just launched its fifth season.
