8th habit: from effectiveness to greatness

Auteur: Stephen R. Covey

taal: engels

In the 7 Habits series, international bestselling author Stephen R. Covey showed us how to become as effective as it is possible to be. In his long-awaited new book, THE 8th HABIT, he opens up an entirely new dimension of human potential, and shows us how to achieve greatness in any position and any venue. All of us, Covey says, have within us the means for greatness. To tap into it is a matter of finding the right balance of four human attributes: talent, need, conscience and passion. At the nexus of these four attributes is what Covey calls voice - the unique, personal significance we each possess. Covey exhorts us all to move beyond effectiveness into the realm of greatness - and he shows us how to do so, by engaging our strengths and locating our powerful, individual voices. Why do we need this new habit? Because we have entered a new era in human history. The world is a profoundly different place than when THE 7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE was originally published in 1989. The challenges and complexity we face today are of a different order of magnitude. We enjoy far greater autonomy in all areas of our lives, and along with this freedom comes the expectation that we will manage ourselves, instead of being managed by others. At the same time, we struggle to feel engaged, fulfilled and passionate. Tapping into the higher reaches of human genius and motivation to find our voice requires a new mindset, a new skill-set, a new tool-set - in short, a whole new habit.

A Culture of Growth

Auteur: Joel Mokyr

Taal: engels

THE ORIGINS OF THE MODERN ECONOMY DURING THE LATE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY, innovations in Europe triggered the Industrial Revolution and the sustained economic progress that spread across the globe. While much has been made of the details of the Industrial Revolution, what remains a Mystery is why it took place at all. Why did this revolution begin in the West and not elsewhere, and why did it continue, leading to today's unprecedented prosperity? In this groundbreaking book, celebrated economic historian Joel Mokyr argues that a culture of growth specific to early modern Europe and the European Enlightenment laid the foundations for the scientific advances and pioneering inventions that would instigate explosive technological and economic development. Bringing together economics, the history of science and technology, and models of cultural evolution, Mokyr demonstrates that culture—the beliefs, values, and preferences in society that are capable of changing behavior—was a deciding factor in societal transformations. Mokyr looks at the period 1500-1700 to show that a politically fragmented Europe fostered a competitive "market for ideas" and a willingness to investigate the secrets of nature. At the same time, a transnational community of brilliant thinkers known as the "Republic of Letters" freely circulated and distributed ideas and writings. This political fragmentation and the supportive intellectual environment explain how the Industrial Revolution happened in Europe but not China, despite similar levels of technology and intellectual activity In Europe, heterodox and creative thinkers could find sanctuary in other countries and spread their thinking across borders. In contrast, China's version of the Enlightenment remained controlled by the ruling elite. Combining ideas from economics and cultural evolution, A Culture of Growth provides startling reasons for why the foundations of our modern economy were laid in the mere two centuries between Columbus and Newton.

Abraham Moszkowicz spreekt zich uit

‘Soms wil ik weten hoe elke centimeter van de veertienhonderd kilometer rook en voelde, in die wagons die mijn vader, zijn zus, broer en ouders van Westerbork naar Auschwitz brachten. De feiten zijn: de trein vertrok dinsdag 21 september 1942, elf uur ‘s ochtends. De locomotief trok dertien veewagons. Elke wagon vervoerde om en nabij 60 joden. Alleen mijn vader keerde terug. ’
‘Uiteraard zou ik het prettig vinden wanneer u na lezing van dit boek zou denken: “Goed dan, misschien moet ik niet alles wat ik over Bram hoor of lees geloven. ” Maar ik zou het nog prettiger vinden wanneer u werkelijk wat sceptischer wordt over álles wat u leest of hoort, wie daarvan ook het onderwerp is. ’
