A Goodreads Summary

“The way we manage organizations seems increasingly out of date. Deep inside, we sense that more is possible. We long for soulful workplaces, for authenticity, community, passion, and purpose.

In this groundbreaking book, the author shows that every time, in the past, when humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness, it has achieved extraordinary breakthroughs in collaboration. A new shift in consciousness is currently underway. Could it help us invent a more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals?

A few pioneers have already cracked the code and they show us, in practical detail, how it can be done. Leaders, founders, coaches, and consultants will find this work a joyful handbook, full of insights, examples, and inspiring stories.”

One Minute Wisdom

One Minute Wisdom

by Anthony de Mello

One Minute Wisdom berisi penuh dengan kisah pendek penuh inspirasi yang ‘membangunkan’, walaupun kadang membingungkan.

Pengajaran terjadi saat kita siap menyimak.

Goodreads Summary

“Bestselling author Anthony de Mello has earned international acclaim for his profound spiritual insights and his unique approach to the inner life. In One Minute Wisdom, he points the way toward new levels of contemplation and contentment, love and harmony, wisdom and enlightenment.

In more than two hundred parables and lessons about living life fully yet simply, de Mello gives examples filled with wisdom that cannot be conveyed in regular direct discourse. Rooted in the spirit of the Gospel and spanning the mystical traditions of East and West, this invigorating volume — like all the author’s previous books — is intended to enliven our faith and free us from whatever imprisons our mind, body, and soul.

One Minute Wisdom will lead from sense to sensitivity, from mood to meaning, from thought to feeling. And as de Mello writes, “Wisdom can come without the slightest effort — in the time it takes to open your eyes.”

Wherever your spiritual belief may lie — or even if you have no beliefs at all — you will find in these pages needed and helpful direction on continuing the process of self-discovering and on finding the satisfying riches that lie deep within you.”

Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

Driveby Daniel H. Pink

Tiga elemen motivasi adalah keleluasaan (autonomy), kemahiran (mastery), dan tujuan (purpose). Dua yang pertama berbasiskan metoda. Untuk yang terakhir, cenderung berbasiskan non-metoda.

Apakah tujuan kita? Apakah tujuan kita absolut? Apakah kita perlu bertujuan?

Senantiasa Berada percaya akan selaras dengan Semesta, sikap yang senantiasa menyesuaikan dalam ruang dan waktu yang dianugerahkan, tanpa mengharuskan.

Goodreads Summary

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It’s wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today’s world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.

Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it’s precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today’s challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation:

*Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives
*Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters
*Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves

Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward.

Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.
