Expansive and Akimbo, or Wringing and Rubbing?
Get the audiobook on Audible or Amazon. Think Like a Psychologist is about working backward from the person in front of you. You will learn to draw conclusions about people’s emotions, behavior, past experiences, and overall personality and temperament based on small yet important pieces of information. From this analysis, you will gain enormous insight into the people around you, new and old. You may not be able to read people’s minds but armed with knowledge about behavioral tendencies, developmental psychology, motivation and personality theories, and nature versus nurture, you will always possess deeper comprehension that others may not even have about themselves. And of course, there is an element of lie detection. Understanding others is an opening to understanding yourself and self-awareness.  #emotions #personality #motivation #psychology #patrickking #russellnewton #newtonmg Visit Russell Newton at Newton Media Group.

Moving From Passive Apathy to Active Listening

They allow you to effortlessly glide through life and roll with the punches, as well as maximize the situations you’ll find yourself in. When your relationships are harmonious and authentic, the whole world opens up. Understand people's psychological drives.  Improve Your People Skills is a book of action that allows you to truly understand others and speak their language, no matter what it is. It will fundamentally change your approach to others and you’ll instantly understand where you’ve gone wrong. It goes beyond social intelligence and gives you a blueprint to the psychology of people.

Whether it’s winning at work politics, making new friends, or strengthening current relationships, people skills are your quickest and surest route to success – no matter the situation.  Patrick King is an internationally bestselling author and sought-after social skills coach and trainer. He knows firsthand the value of people skills because they rescued him from lackluster grades and jumpstarted his career – the value of “just fitting in anywhere” cannot be understated.  People skills open the doors for your life in a way that literally nothing else can. The world is not a meritocracy – a startling realization for most, but a happy epiphany for those with people skills. Technical skills can almost always be learned, but people skills are rare and valuable. Create massively successful relationships anywhere.

Like Attracts Like, In Relationships Just as in Science
You can get a new haircut and wardrobe, and you even learn knock-knock jokes. But likability is something more. It's subconscious, and it's about the small signs that signal our brains to let their guards down, seek others out, and embrace them. We know what to do if we want to make someone hate us - we now also know what to do to become someone's favorite person. Understand what makes people tick, and strategically give it to them.  There are seminal studies from (in)famous researchers such as Sigmund Freud, Ivan Pavlov, Stanley Schachter, and Daniel Goleman, but also the most up-to-date discoveries from 2019 - all insightful, analytical, sometimes surprising, but most importantly effective and actionable. Pair that with the insight and human intelligence factor of bestselling author and social skills coach Patrick King, and you have a guide that can be read equally for education as for helpful, real advice.

Virtues or Vices: The Choice Is Yours.
Aristotle possessed the belief that virtue (and thus eudaemonia) would spring from moderation of 11 specific traits, which again are right at the midpoint between excess and deficiency. The first trait we will cover is courage, and courage is the midpoint between reckless action (excess) and cowardice (deficiency). Too much courage and you will leap without thinking; too little courage and you will make only fear-based decisions.

Ego vs. Task Orientation
Many of us will inevitably fall prey to ego orientation, which is when we are overly focused on comparisons, outside perceptions, and ultimately what others think about us regarding the performance of a task. Obviously, this is not about the task itself, and lends itself to procrastination because in the end, you’d rather not risk embarrassment or judgment. And so you don’t move; you are running to stand still. We should instead shift our focus and goals to task orientation, which is the performance of the act itself. It sounds simplistic, but the obstacle is that we are all wired to emotionally protect ourselves, and we will do this subconsciously. You may indeed be acting (or not acting) out of ego orientation, or another type of psychological defense mechanism. Sometimes we don’t take action because we don’t know how to focus our energy, but other times, we remain stagnant out of fear or avoidance. #egoorientation #task #goals #motivation #focus #employee Get the audiobook on Audible or Amazon. #patrickking #thoughts #laziness #action #intentions #tomorrow #brain #productivity #experience #russellnewton #newtonmg Visit Patrick King Consulting or Russell Newton at Newton Media Group.

Beating Procrastination
Many great ideas go unexecuted, and many great executioners are without ideas. One without the other is worthless. - Tim Blixseth You may not have realized how deeply it has seeped into your daily behaviors and habits, and now this avoidance of action is holding you back from the rest of your life. For most of us, procrastination is the big obstacle to getting into motion.

Bundle Temptations & Improve Your Environment
Author Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, known for the book Flow, calls this general approach for environment changing one’s activation energy—the less activation energy required to make good decisions and take action, the better. And by contrast, the higher the activation energy for staying in inaction, the better. Activation energy can also be seen as the overall amount of effort people are willing to spend. Make the conscious choice to make action more immediately accessible, and action has a better chance.

Maximize Momentum
Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes but don't quit. - Conrad Hilton This is the chapter that assumes you can now occasionally kick your butt into action. You can achieve blastoff sometimes—perhaps not consistently, but you can do it when you put your mind to it. Obviously, this is something we want to improve upon. How can you make it easier to always spring into action when you want? This is the concept of momentum—when you can create less resistance to your first step and make your second and third steps flow easily thereafter. Momentum doesn’t necessarily depend on your mindset or thoughts. It actually hinges more upon your environment, your planning, and the ways that you set yourself up for success or failure. It’s how you are able to make the right choice time after time. Willpower and self-discipline won’t always get you there,but you can design your life to create and maximize momentum.

Learn to distinguish between urgent and important tasks
One matters, while the other only appears to because it may have more time constraints. But urgency by itself doesn’t denote any kind of priority. To master the difference, try using the Eisenhower Matrix to divide your tasks into four separate categories; you’ll find that much less matters than you previously thought. It is similar to the don’t-do list because it can create clarity on what you are wasting your time on.

Solution Versus Problem Mindset
The fixed mindset says that intelligence, talent, ability, and performance are all firmly determined from cradle to grave—they can’t change or grow. You are what you are, and if you don’t have something by now, you’ll never have it. This leads to a whole lot of roadblocks in the process itself, because what’s the purpose in trying if you don’t think you have it in you? The growth mindset is fundamentally different because it assumes change and growth are possible. Whatever and wherever you are right now is just a starting place from which to develop and improve. In this approach, nothing is impossible because it takes the position that learning and growth are always rewarded in some way.

The Take-Action Mindset
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We’ve talked about the various ways that you can be galvanized into action. This chapter focuses on the mindsets regarding action—your perspective and overall view about motion versus stillness. Our actions depend wholly on our thoughts, and no matter how much we incentivize ourselves, if we can’t change the way we think about action, we’re doomed. For instance, one common concept is the fixed mindset versus the growth mindset.

Limit Consumption to Increase Productivity
Consuming information is almost always seen as a net positive. It’s what we believe underlies being educated and intelligent, and reading in particular is seen as superior to more passive forms of media consumption.  The point is that it’s easy to feel like we’re being productive by reading, when all we’re actually doing is wasting time in a slightly more intellectual way than binge-watching Game of Thrones.

Err on the Side of Action
You may have heard of what’s known as the fight or flight response. This is when we interpret a stimulus in the world to be dangerous, which ratchets up our adrenaline and alertness and readies our bodies to either flee at full speed or engage in a fight to the death. What’s less frequently mentioned is that this response actually has a third component—freezing. For most, this is when the adrenaline rush is so extreme that we are essentially left frozen in shock. For those who have made a habit of avoiding action, this is our default response no matter what happens. It’s easier said than done to break these patterns, but this chapter contains a few ways to err on the side of action and get moving more frequently and consistently.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.
One of the (many) problems with a lifetime of not taking action is that your first instinct will be to freeze. You may feel that it’s safer to maintain the status quo instead of making a move, or you may just feel uncomfortable acting without analyzing things to death. Whatever the case, you have found yourself unconsciously erring on the side of inaction.

You Can’t Think and Do at the Same Time
Perhaps for the brain, a lack of action is truly the safest way to live, but it ignores that doing is the only thing we are measured by in this world. Your overactive mind will hold you back from everything, from the easiest tasks to calculated risks. At the basic level, overthinking can make you tired, scared, and stuck in life. In more extreme cases, overthinking can cause anxiety and shut you out completely from your goals, desires, and beliefs. As you’ll read here, our brains are quite adept at sabotaging our best intentions. Is it just as easy to quiet your mind as stepping into a soundproof room? Well, no. That’s a tough habit to crack. But at the very least, there are ways to redirect that extra energy you use to run in place and avoid taking a single step forward. These methods start with zeroing in on what you spend your overthinking quota on, and how to cut it shorter. Get the audiobook on Audible.
