#EXPERTTALKS

Connect with Thought Leaders Worldwide

In this #ExpertTalk, we hear from Giovanni Dienstmann, a meditation teacher, coach, speaker, and author of Mindful Self-Discipline, as he outlines how to move from frustration to fulfillment. 

FROM FRUSTRATION TO FULFILLMENT

Leadership courses, books and trainings abound, but the hard truth is that the best leaders are the ones who exercise self-discipline. Although that sounds a lot less “fun” than working on developing some other qualities, it is the basis of finding fulfillment in life, work, and relationships. 

Learn:

  • How willpower alone fails to cultivate self-discipline
  • How to define your goals and values
  • How to overcome distractions, self-doubt and cultivate inner peace

JEFF HADEN

My current favorite book is The Power of Regret by Daniel Pink,” says author and Inc. Magazine contributing editor Jeff Haden. “NO REGRETS! makes for a great tattoo, but it’s a terrible philosophy.” In his book, Pink argues that regrets help us learn from mistakes, decide what is truly important to us and make better decisions in the future. “While dwelling on regrets isn’t helpful, learning from them definitely is,” concludes Jeff. He praises Pink for laying out a process for reframing regret into something useful – “something that will make a definite difference in your personal and professional life.” We suggest you follow Jeff’s recommendation and read our summary of Daniel Pink’s argument. You won’t regret it!
