New Newsletter: "Mohini the Tigress"

If there is a secret to a life well-lived it must surely lie in fulfilling the potential that we are born with. At birth, our potential is unlimited but, as we grow, it shrinks bit by bit with the fears that we learn and believe from others. By the time we reach adulthood, many of us have lost sight of our unlimited potential and live the rest of our days inside a comfortable cage that protects us from our fears but also limits us to a fraction of our possibilities. In this new newsletter, we'll tell you the story of Mohini the Tigress and show you that you are unique, supremely gifted, and the owner of a potential that is truly without bounds... more


Is This the Future of Learning?

When we started compiling our annual "Manage, Click, Learn!" e-book showcasing the top learning websites, we struggled to find 100 websites that could really be classed as exciting, revolutionary, and groundbreaking. That was back in 1997. Today, 16 years on, we come across websites that fit that description on a regular basis. This week, we bring you a new site that we think is all of those things: exciting, revolutionary and groundbreaking. It's skilledup and, if you've an interest in where learning is going, you're going to fall in love with it. From this site, you can access an amazing 79,818 online courses from over 273 learning libraries - many of which are FREE - covering skill sets such as Audio and Video; Basic Computing; and Business and Entrepreneurship.

Management Training Quiz: Blocks to Thinking

Do you know the difference between a perceptive thinking block and a cultural thinking block? Is it better to stand back from a problem or get closer to it? Can you say what the lesson of the story of the Blind Men and the Elephant is? Is good thinking the same as being clever? And do you know the real reason why our thinking diminishes with age? All of these and more are in this week's management training quiz on Blocks to Thinking. It's free to enter and you could win a prize. For fun and learning, try this week's quiz here... more


Stop Worrying Yourself to Death

A recent survey by the Everyman Campaign has discovered that the average person spends 36 minutes every day worrying. That's 9 whole days a year or a year and a half over a lifetime. To make matters worse, nearly half of respondents admitted that they can't stop worrying and believe they are "born worriers". If this picture of how people live their lives rings a bell with you, then take a moment out of your anxieties to read this story of The Man Who Worried Himself to Death... more
