It’s Friday: Time For a Playlist About How to Manage Yourself

Managing Yourslelf.

It’s finally Friday. Thank goodness the week is over. I’ve had a very rough one. One thing I can attest to: when things are rough, we require strategies to manage ourselves.

Whether you have run amuck with a mound of negative thoughts — or you are just plain feeling stuck — listening to experts sharing their research and experiences, can help us re-frame our challenges.

This week we’ve once again picked our favorite videos to help you through the rough patches and offer a bit of guidance. Click on the following link to reach our YouTube channel and then find “Playlists”. Happy viewing. Link:

Here are our picks:

  • Developing a Growth Mindset. Psychologist Carol Dweck reminds us, that potential has much to do with our perspective.
  • How to Make Stress Your Friend. Health Psychologist Kelly McGonigal talks about stress and the beliefs that we hold about that stress.
  • True Grit: Can Perseverance Be Taught. Angela Duckworth lets us know that intelligence is much smaller part of the story, where achievement is concerned.
  • Mindy Kaling’s Advice for Young Girls. Actress Mindy Kaling tells us to focus on your art — not the aspects of you that you feel will hold you back.
  • Getting Stuck in the Negatives (and How to Get Unstuck). Social psychologist Alison Ledgerwood touches on how we are overwhelmingly affected by negative information (loss-focus)  — and what it takes to get unstuck.

Do you have a favorite video to add to this list? Let us know.

Live.Work.Think.Play shares observations concerning a wide array of topics from running a company — to the perfect gift. It is designed to share lessons learned from a variety of perspectives.
