To Celebrate 3800th Blog Posting: Blog the Way to Step into the Deep Digital New Normal

Creativity is not a “thing,” it’s a process that happens as a proactive mental activity to a problem.

Leadership is an influence and a practice, there is no magic recipe otherwise. Good leaders are continually practicing, experiencing, learning, adjusting, and they understand that ultimate mastery of leadership does not exist. The future leaders should think that every minute of their time counts. There is no time to waste. The path to mastery is something that unfolds day by day. It is the time to celebrate the 3800th blog posting, for brainstorming, deepening digital understanding and advocate change and innovation.

Deep in thinking: We live in an era where often the mind is lagging far behind the speed of the internet. The knowledge life cycle is significantly shortened, and the pace of information technology is so rapid that no one can rest on a static mindset, past accomplishments, or the wishful thought that everything is perfect the way it is. Deep in thinking, also be humble enough to admit known unknown and unknown unknown. Indeed, the mindset is far more important than talent. Talent can always be developed by those who keep growth in mind.

The quality of your life is a function of the quality of the thinking you have done.

The narrowness of mind is the biggest handicap for innovation.

Independent Thinking simply means making up your own mind.

Fair in judgment: One of the most influencing aspects of people’s psychology is how they perceive the world around and how they relate to it. The knowledge constraint and perception bias are paramount issues during people interactions. The truth is that each of us is a complex blend of contrasts - positive and negative; intuitive and logical with imperfect judgment. It takes practice, practice, and practice more to be open in true understanding and be fair in judgment.

A more discerning individual is better equipped to make sound judgments

Learning to think beyond a single dimension; look beyond the surface; love more than one color and enjoy the world of difference.

High EQ mind can leverage multifaceted thought processes in making sound judgments.

Effective in decision making: Decision maturity is to ensure the right decisions have been made by the right people at the right time. In reality, many poor decisions are made by very intelligent people. It is the responsibility of each individual to examine themselves and their decision-making scenario to make sure they are open to true understanding for achieving decision maturity.

Decision making is an art only until the person understands the science.

Decision-making style reflects leadership effectiveness and the level of digital professional maturity.

Decision makers with emotional excellence have the ability to dispassionately examine alternatives via fact-finding, analysis, structured planning, objective evaluations, and comparison

Creative in problem-solving: 
Creativity to some extent is the nature of seeing the patterns that already exist. Creative people are both problem finders and problem solvers and always challenge conventional wisdom by asking questions which often lead to discovering situations others do not see at first.

The solution to encourage creativity is to maximize use of employees’ brainpower.

The exercise of blending people’s problem-solving abilities to produce the desired outcome is a worthwhile thing to do.

Creativity is not a “thing,” it’s a process that happens as a proactive mental activity to a problem.

Adaptive in change: Change - big or small is inevitable. You can’t step into the same river twice, meaning that everything is always in a state of flow. Adaptability is to be understood as the ability of people or a system to adapt itself efficiently and fast to changed circumstances.

Awareness is the first step of Change, it starts from the mindset level.

Forward-thinking means to focus on the future, even a few steps ahead, to build a long-term prosperity.

A solution is nothing if the problem is not perceived. Bridging the 'gap of opportunity' between where you are and want to become is a welcomed challenge.

Blogging is an addiction - If you have to addict to something, addict to creativity, addict to continuous learning and improvement. Blogging is not about writing, but about thinking and innovating the new ideas; it’s not just about WHAT to say, but about WHY to say, and HOW to say it. It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves.
