Innovation – from Leptop to I-Phone

Filed under: Daily Post | Tags: , , , , , ,

In Merriam Webster dictionary the word Innovation stand for the “introduction of something new , a new idea, method, or device”,pic for few days I am thinking about one device that has changed my life, my mobile phone(I-phone from Apple) Is with me since February 2008 but only In the last 2 weeks I left the office without my laptop, after 17 years I finally manage to detached from the laptop, this is a great opportunity to write about innovation, the power of technology and new ways to connect with people.

I have used many of the smart phones since 2003, but it was never a good replacement to my laptop, keyboard was too small, the lack of power and the number of applications were not enough also the battery died after few hours of heavy usage.

iphoneBut now I use the I-phone for almost all communication and for entertainment, I’m using it for regular calls and IP calls, for SMS, Twitter, Chat, IM, internet, Facebook and other communities, for the first time I feel that the mobile phone can replace the PC and maybe the TV, Radio, Music, video, books, news and games. . . in large part of the my day this is all I need, even the author Deepak Chopra write with his books using his blackberry.

I love technology and I admire companies that built product with such innovation such as Apple, they give me a lot of inspiration to take personal development, mentoring and coaching to the mobile world with Interactive application that will combine podcasts, video’s questionnaires and dashboards and will allow us to practice anytime and anywhere and improve our lives.

Few months ago we developed an interactive online program based on Deepak Chopra’s Best seller – Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. Our aim was to help people implement the method in their lives.

I think that it is very important to start your day with 15 to 30 minutes practice of the Seven Laws. I have been doing it every day for the last few month, feeling that it is helping me to balance my life and achieve my deepest desires.

The laws offer anyone who wants to create a meaningful and happier reality, the practical tools and clear knowledge of what success is and how to reach it.
Designed to connect you to the mystery of existence, the seven laws will guide you to fulfill your true potential, and live a balanced and inspired life.
Seven simple daily laws contain all the information you need in order to begin your personal journey.

While connecting to Tuesday’s law, The Law of Karma, I realized that Every moment is a moment of choice and therefore every moment is a moment of infinite possibilities.

In order to understand and implement the law into your life, you can ask yourself to recognize that you are a choice maker, to anticipate the consequences of your choice and to listen to your body to sense the affect of your choice.

Daily Inspiration – 23.3.09

Two weeks ago Robin Sharma arrived to Israel as our guest and speaker in three events, we had an amazing time where Robin gave inspiration to so many people in the events, in meetings and to every person he met.
robin-in-the-event
It was also the launch to our new program called ” Leadership For Everyone” and Robin’s new book called “Daily Inspiration“. I believe that we all need inspiration every day and by reading books, seeing movies, going to seminars or listening to podcasts, it can be part of our life. I have decided that when a daily inspiration will touch my heart I will write about it and today it did. I felt that so many people are survivals in this world and forget that they have many choices and that they can take action now!

robin-in-israel“We always have choices as human beings. Each of us has far more choices that we are aware of. We think we are so Limited in life that we have to live and do what we currently do. That’s just more of the language that victims are prone to use. It’s always up to you – how far along the path home from social self to your authentic self you want to go. And when you assume personal responsibility for what’s not working in your life and then bravely start taking action to improve what needs to improve, doors you didn’t even know existed will begin to open up.” Robin Sharma

# 1 Fear – Public Speaking
March 22, 2009, 8:33 am
Filed under: Leadership | Tags: , , , , ,

indigo2Few weeks ago I spoke to my friend Isaac about fears during our daily walk. He mention that the number one fear is Public speaking. I couldn’t believe it and he was almost sure that he read it in the “Time Magazine”. I asked him to find more evidence to this finding since I thought that fear of death is number one and that, at least, the fear of the dentist is stronger than public speaking. . .

During the following week, I spoke to some of my friend that confirmed they are more afraid of public speaking then death because they don’t know enough about death but they had many experiences at nursery /school / university / parties when they had to speak in front of others and they shared with me that this is their number one fear. Some of them shared that they feel shame, some are depending on what other people think of them, for others it is related to their look and few think that they have nothing to say in public.

When Robin Sharma arrived to Israel few days later as our guest, he mention the same phenomena in his keynote and I remembered that I used to feel uncomfortable with public speaking 10 year ago, though I had a brilliant coach Barry Katz who worked with me to improve my skills and enjoy public speaking. I believe that confronting a fear is going out of our comfort zone and improve the leadership in our own life.

Isaac came back to me with some referrals to the phenomena:

• Fear of Public speaking is said to be the Number One Fear reported in surveys of American adults, topping such fears as the fear of flying, financial problems, sickness, and even death!, Americans said that their number one fear was public speaking, and that the fear of death was number five.

• According to The Book of Lists (contains hundreds of lists on unusual or esoteric topics), the fear of public speaking ranks number one in the minds of the majority of people. Far above the fear of death and disease, comes the fear of standing in front of a crowd. We all want to be movie stars, but are terrified of the spotlight. I have some opinions about why this happens, to be covered in a future article.

Public Speaking – A Greater Fear Than Death? By Peter Fisher Platinum Quality AuthorPeter Fisher is a Career Coach and Director of Career Consulting Limited. A webmaster for over 20 Personal Development and Careers Websites ranging from Your-Career-Change.com . According to studies, public speaking is a bigger fear than death. Fear of public speaking is reported to be the number one fear of American adults, with many people experiencing tremendous suffering because of it. The fear of public speaking is the most common phobia that has ever been diagnosed and while this does not mean people would rather be dead than speak in public, as some authors would like you to believe, it does illustrate why communication of ideas through public speaking is often avoided by professionals. Yet quite simply, one of the most powerful sources of confidence in your public speaking ability is knowing that you are prepared.

Fear of Public Speaking by Hildy Gottlieb Copyright ReSolve, Inc. 2004©
Some studies have shown that fear of public speaking ranks up there with the fear of death. That doesn’t surprise me. Although I am now about as comfortable with a microphone and an audience as I am in my own living room, that wasn’t always true. To be honest, until only a few years ago, I was petrified to talk in front of any sized group.

Fear of public speaking is easily one of the most common and debilitating fears that there is. Many people place fear of public speaking in the same category that they do life-threatening situations. So if getting up in front of people is something that scares you silly, you aren’t alone. Fear of public speaking is rated the number one fear with death actually coming in at number four.

Dealing with our fears, dancing with them and overcoming challenges could lead us to better life and opportunities to grow to our full potential and I believe that everyone deserve this chance.

Lets end with a quote from Jerry Seinfeld: “According to most studies, people’s number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two? Does that seem right? To the average person that means that if they have to go to a funeral, they’d be better off in the casket than giving the eulogy.”

I will be happy if you share your thoughts about public speaking as the #1 Fear,

Accept Uncertainty

green2Unemployment occurs when a person is available to work but is without work. The unemployment figures are growing worldwide, in US it is 8.1% ( Feb 09) Vs 4.8% ( Feb 08) and many articles describe this phenomena as the biggest threat to the world, bigger then war.

Yesterday I spoke to friend that was on his way for job interview searching for inspiration to be on his best. I suggested to him that by being passionate about the work he is going to do, he will have better chances to get the job. Be agile, Accept uncertainty and Enjoy life are the kings of inspiration that will help anyone get the right job even today.

The world is changing and it is a time of uncertainty. Every day I receive an email or a call from people asking if I can help them find a job. To every person that wants to find a job, I usually advise to be proactive, write and talk every day to people they know and ask them to assist you, be creative and search for many different approaches to find a job (other than looking at the internet and newspapers) and don’t forget to use the time of unemployment to invest in your growth, read books, write about your dreams work and spend more quality time with their families.

Opportunities Are Now Here

greenAs I get ready for an important board meeting today, I realize that now people tend to be more conservative. We realize that the economy has changed and that there’s less and less room for optimism. It’s better to be on the safe side and communicate the fears to the public and share holders or the downside of the business rather than the upside.

As a chairman, my role is to mentor the CEO, to lead the strategy and manage the board meetings and decision on short, medium and long term view of the business but in today’s world I find board members trying to help the firm survive these hard times instead of looking for opportunities to grow. We all know that “opportunities are nowhere” is written with the same letters but with different spaces as “opportunities are now here“, and I think that it is the time to show leadership and spread some optimism, so that good businesses will grow and that the economy today, like a burnt piece of timber, would act as the ground for future soil / businesses to grow faster.
