The Accidental Creative: How to Be Brilliant at a Moment's Notice

by Todd Henry

You go to work each day tasked with (1) inventing brilliant solutions that (2) meet specific objectives by (3) defined deadlines. If you do this successfully you get to keep your job. If you don't, you get to work on your résumé. The moment you exchange your creative efforts for money, you enter a world where you will have to be brilliant at a moment's notice. (No pressure, right?)" Many of us assume that our creative process is beyond our ability to influence, and pay attention to it only when it isn't working properly. For the most part, we go about our daily tasks and everything just "works. " Until it doesn't. We treat our creative process like a household appliance. It's just expected to work quietly in the background, and we lose sight of how much we depend on it until the day we're stuck with dirty socks. Adding to this lack of understanding is the rapidly accelerating pace of work. Each day we are faced with escalating expectations and a continual squeeze to do more with less. We are asked to produce everincreasing amounts of brilliance in ever-shrinking amounts of time. There is an unspoken (or spoken!) expectation that we'll be accessible 24/7, and as a result we frequently feel like we're "always on. " Now business creativity expert Todd Henry explains how to unleash your creative potential. Whether you're a creative by trade or an "accidental creative," this book will help you quickly and effectively integrate new ideas into your daily life. Born out of his consultancy and his popular podcast, the book offers a practical method for discovering your personal creative rhythm, whether you're a manager or a consultant, a designer or a performer. As he writes: "The always-on manner with which many creatives approach their work is arrhythmic, but the creative process is naturally rhythmic. Working harder and staring more intently at the problem to achieve better ideas is like trying to control the weather by staring at the clouds. Rather, you need to incorporate practices that instill a sense of structure, rhythm, and purpose into your life. You need to create space for your creative process to thrive rather than expecting it to operate in the cracks of your frenetic schedule. This will not only help you generate better ideas now, but it will also ensure that you are acting on the things that matter most instead of drifting through your days.

Building on the groundbreaking success and unique offerings of earlier volumes, the fifth edition presents insightful new content on aspects of the search at all stages. Beginning with an overview of academic careers and institutional structures, it moves step by step through the application process, from establishing relationships with advisors, positioning oneself in the market, learning about job openings, preparing CVs, cover letters, and other application materials, to negotiating offers. Of great value are the sixty new sample documents from a diverse spectrum of successful applicants. The handbook includes a search timetable, appendices of career resources, and a full sample application package. This fifth edition features new or updated sections on issues of current interest, such as job search concerns for pregnant or international candidates, the use of social media strategies to address CV gaps, and difficulties faced by dual-career couples. The chapter on alternatives to faculty jobs has been expanded and presents sample résumés of PhDs who found nonfaculty positions. For more than twenty years, The Academic Job Search Handbook has assisted job seekers in all academic disciplines in the search for faculty positions at different kinds of institutions from research-focused universities to community colleges. Current faculty who used the book themselves recommend it to their own students and postdocs. The many new first-person narratives provide insight into issues and situations candidates may encounter such as applying for an international job, combining parenting with an academic career, going from an administrative job to a faculty position, and seeking faculty positions as a same-sex couple.

Acabe com a fadiga crônica: obtenha de volta sua vida

by Lisa Gibson Rosana Vargas Tradutora

Receber o diagnóstico de SFC pode ser devastador, isso porque há mais perguntas do que respostas sobre essa síndrome. Ela ainda é um mistério para a comunidade médica e por isso é chamada de síndrome. Por isso o diagnóstico é feito normalmente por processo de eliminação e pode até mesmo se tornar um termo geral para sua condição quando os profissionais da saúde não descobrem o que mais pode estar errado. Deste modo, infelizmente muitos podem passar anos ou a vida com esse diagnóstico misterioso enquanto os médicos não esgotarem todas as demais possibilidades. SFC é ainda um enigma para a comunidade da saúde e as pessoas que sofrem por essa condição podem ser percebidas pelos outros como preguiçosas, fracas ou hipocondríacas Quero parabenizá-lo por dar o primeiro passo para melhorar sua vida e realmente descobrir como lidar melhor com os sintomas da fadiga crônica. Entender a doença ou a enfermidade pode trazer novas esperanças e abordagens. Em desespero, gastei rios de dinheiro fora do meu orçamento tentando navegar em um oceano de tratamento de saúde e buscando desvendar as respostas. Isso pode ser muito caro e desgastante. Não desejo que passe por isso.

Abuso e espancamento: de vítima a vitoriosa

by Crystal Mary Lindsey Bianca Ferreira de Oliveira

Como ela poderia viver? O medo constantemente a tomava! E ainda sim, como ela continuaria? Se sentia presa! Vivia em constante medo de fazer com que seu esposo ficasse com raiva. Uma garota inocente carente por atenção encontra um belo homem. Desejando que ele preenchesse o vazio de sua vida, ela está disposta a fazer de tudo por ele. Em sua inocência ela acredita que isso o fará ama-la. Seus sentimentos por ela são PODER e DESEJO, não AMOR! Este homem era um narcisista e para permanecer fiel a ele, ela constantemente sofre – traição completa – sendo usada e abusada. Um aborto aos dezesseis anos Um casamento com um homem que só se importa com ele Divergências culturais – medo e vergonha são usados para controla-la. Violência física: batidas, e espancamento nos primeiros sete anos. Controle mental: ele somente a olhava de certo modo e ela congelava. Confiança em si mesma e seu valor sumiram dando lugar a ansiedade e medo. Abuso espiritual: Nenhuma liberdade espiritual. Ela era perseguida e ridicularizada por sua crença em Deus. Ela testemunhou o abuso de seus filhos e quando tentava pará-lo, ele se virava a ela. Ela estava ciente da descrença de seu marido. Nesta história você ouvirá como uma garota solitária cai em uma rede onde parece não haver escape. Este era um tempo no qual problemas em casa não eram falados então ela não fazia ideia para onde correr. Ela também temia contar as autoridades por medo de punição. A sabedoria de Deus diz: “Não vos prendais a um jugo desigual com os infiéis; porque, que sociedade tem a justiça com a injustiça? E que comunhão tem a luz com as trevas?” (2 Coríntios 6:14). Passando por machucados e vergonha, a autora espera que escrevendo a sua história ajude a evitar que outros venham cair em situações semelhantes. Embora, hoje seja uma época diferente com mais educação e discussão, abusos ainda acontecem e as mulheres permanecem

Rydall teaches the laws of giving and circulation that will release the channels of abundance-creating energy in your life through his Seven Gifts that Give You Everything; he will help you identify Abundance Blind Spots and Shadows that get in the way; and he walks you through the step-by-step Abundance Boot Camp so you can design and master the life you’ve envisioned.

An Absorbing Errand: How Artists and Craftsmen Make Their Way to Mastery

by Janna Malamud Smith

An Absorbing Errand uses stories of artists' lives, personal anecdotes, and insights from the author's work as a psychotherapist to examine the psychological obstacles that prevent people from staying with, and relishing, the process of art-making. Each chapter is devoted to a problem intrinsic to the creative process and illustrates how these very obstacles, once understood, can become prime sources of the energy that actually fuels the mastery of art-making.Ultimately, An Absorbing Errand provides a philosophical, historical, and analytical look at the creative impulse and how certain artists from a wide field mastered their craft. From Julia Child to Charlie Chaplin, Lady Gaga to Michael Jackson, famous painters to established writers, Smith shows us how each overcame the obstacles they faced in the pursuit of their creative visions.Many people carry within their hearts an aching sense that they have something they want to express through art; or that they will not feel complete until they've brought out some hidden part of themselves. Yet they cannot begin to do the work of bringing their creative idea into the world. Or, maybe they've begun over and over, but they can't stay with their labor long enough to finish it. An Absorbing Errand is a supportive companion, an enlightened and compassionate ballast, a guide for anyone who has ever picked up a pencil to write, or a paint brush to paint, or any tool -from chisel to loom- to pursue any serious craft, and then put it down again frustrated, discouraged, and unable to continue.An Absorbing Errand is unlike any book about creating art of any kind, and aspiring and working artists alike will find it both original and invaluable.
