3 fresh ideas in management
Posted April 12, 2008on:
I love flow. I know some people who think it is great to be in flow, or in the zone, for half-an-hour a day. I am a flow junkie. I go for all 24 hours counting a good sleep as good flow.
2 Crossing the Rubicon
But there is something I love more.
That is the rush when you have a crystal clear idea that you know will work and that is, in that instant, so obvious.
What is the name for that?
I know Peter Gollwitzer, the psychologist calls it “crossing the rubicon” – moving from wish to intent.
3 Corporate anthropology
This corporate anthropologist, studies the use of mobile phones by poor people and travels around the world studying the way phones are used.
My questions to you?
Why don’t we study flow a lot more than we do?
Why don’t we study people at work they way this guy studies phones?
Why aren’t we interested in why and when work is blissful and fun?
Why are aren’t we interested in making jobs as enjoyable as Nokia tries to make its phones?
I could do spend all day trying to make work fun and never get tired of it!! Could you? Do you?
