From the Independent Business Blogs: 9/8/21

  |   Leadership Reading Print Friendly and PDF

Independent business blogs are blogs that aren’t supported by an organization like a magazine, newspaper, company, or business school. Those people provide lots of great content, but they don’t need any additional exposure. In this post, every week, I bring you posts of quality from excellent bloggers that don’t get as much publicity.

This week, I’m pointing you to posts by LaRae Quy, Ken Downer, Suzi McAlpine, Kate Nasser, and David Dye.

From LaRae Quy: 3 Ways Positive Thinking Can Empower You Right Now

“The term positive thinking often gets confused with other terms like happiness and optimism, but each has very different meanings:”

From Ken Downer: Hyperbolic Discounting and 7 Ways to Prevent Self-Sabotage

“A behavioral economics term first coined by psychologist Richard Herrnstein in 1961, hyperbolic discounting is the idea that given two similar rewards, we tend to prefer the one that arrives sooner over the one that comes later. “

From Suzi McAlpine: 7 tips for delivering bad news to your boss

“Not gonna lie. Delivering bad news to your boss ain’t fun.”

From Kate Nasser: True Leaders Create Urgency Not Turmoil

“Reaching success takes a sense of urgency and true leaders create urgency without creating turmoil. Urgency moves everyone forward and turmoil has them running in circles or freezing in place. So how do true leaders create urgency without turmoil?”

From David Dye: How to Be a Human-Centered Leader When You’re Stressed or Anxious

“It happens. Despite your plans, investment in people, and hard work, there are always times of stress. Circumstances change. Emergencies happen. An unforeseen ball is dropped. What now?”

How I Select Posts for this Midweek Review

The five posts I select to share in my Midweek Review of the Independent Business Blogs are picked from a regular review of about sixty blogs I check daily and an additional twenty-five or so that I check occasionally. Here’s how I select the posts you see in this review.

They must be published within the previous week.

They must support the purpose of the blog: to help leaders at all levels do a better job and lead a better life.

They must be from an independent business blog.

As a general rule, I only select posts that stand on their own, no selections from a series.

Also as a general rule, I do not select posts that are either a book review or a book report.

I reserve the right to make exceptions to the above.

Here, on Three Star Leadership, I post things that will help a boss at any level do a better job and live a better life. And, at my blog for part-time business book authors, I share tools and insights to help you write and publish a book you’ll be proud of.

The 347 tips in my ebook can help you Become a Better Boss One Tip at a Time.
