Rock Climbing Trip Lesson 1

When you focus your attention on one particular task all the other stresses of life disappear

When you are stressed in life, no matter what you do in your spare time; bowling, watching TV, drinking with friends, your thoughts always return to the thing you are stressing about (during the previous week)

By focusing on an activity that needs your full attention, in this example rock climbing…

Decision Making with Hypnotherapy

Advancing Nursing Informatics

ANS: Advances in Nursing Science Blog

Our current featured article, available at no cost while it is featured, addresses a theoretical model that advances the independent development of nursing informatics.  The article is titled “The Evolution of Data-Information-Knowledge-Wisdom in Nursing Informatics.” by Charlene Ronquillo, MSN, RN; Leanne M. Currie, PhD, RN; and Paddy Rodney, PhD, RN. Here is their message about this important work  for ANS readers:

Setting out to question one of the foundational theories in nursing informatics was a task we approached with much caution, care and respect, in the paper we have contributed to this journal. The theoretical framework we are

referring to is the data-information-knowledge-wisdom framework, often referred to as DIKW. Exploration of DIKW brought us on a very interesting journey: We delved into the literature from the early years when nursing informatics was first beginning to be established as a field of inquiry and we ended up exploring fields that included management…

Death And Moving On

Employment Counselling with Kelly Mitchell

You may be wondering why an Employment Counsellor who blogs about how to get and keep work would be writing about how to move on when someone close to you passes away. Simply put the two are interconnected and the one affects the other. Like any other post, if you find something useful or helpful, I’m happy to have shared my thoughts with you.

Let’s first acknowledge a few things: 1) We will all experience death 2) Unless we lose our life as young child it is inevitable that people we know will die before us 3) We do not all experience events in our lives exactly the same as other people; there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to act. Can we agree on these three things?

When we’re young we might first experience death in the loss of a family pet; a goldfish or hamster that one day isn’t moving. How we first react to this is…

Strategic decisions: When can you trust your gut?

Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman and psychologist Gary Klein debate the power and perils of intuition for senior executives.

For two scholars representing opposing schools of thought, Daniel Kahneman and Gary Klein find a surprising amount of common ground. Kahneman, a psychologist, won the Nobel Prize in economics in 2002 for prospect theory, which helps explain the sometimes counterintuitive choices people make under uncertainty. Klein, a senior scientist at MacroCognition, has focused on the power of intuition to support good decision making in high-pressure environments, such as firefighting and intensive-care units.

In a September 2009 American Psychology article titled “Conditions for intuitive expertise: A failure to disagree,” Kahneman and Klein debated the circumstances in which intuition would yield good decision making. In this interview with Olivier Sibony, a director…

What Do You Mean By “Wisdom”?

Daniel Scharpenburg

It’s an important virtue in Buddhism.

It’s one of the Three Trainings, along with Virtue and Meditation.

But, Wisdom is not always well defined. We sometimes blur the line between wisdom and knowledge, or between wisdom and intellect. These things aren’t the same.

But What is Wisdom, Really?

To me, wisdom means an intuitive understanding of the Dharma.

We can understand concepts like impermanence, emptiness, and interconnectedness on an intellectual level without so much difficulty. It’s easy to memorize and recite the four noble truths or our favorite sutras, but memorization isn’t wisdom. If it was, then the directions for becoming wise would be simple and straightforward. It’s easy to say that “ego is an illusion.” but to really understand that in our minds is something different.

Understanding interconnectedness is knowledge. Wisdom is being interconnectedness—understanding and acting on our interconnectedness in everything that we do. It is much easier…

How to test your decision-making instincts


Executives should trust their gut instincts—but only when four tests are met.

One of the most important questions facing leaders is when they should trust their gut instincts—an issue explored in a dialogue between Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman and psychologist Gary Klein titled “Strategic decisions: When can you trust your gut?” published by McKinsey Quarterly in March 2010. Our work on flawed decisions suggests that leaders cannot prevent gut instinct from influencing their judgments. What they can do is identify situations where it is likely to be biased and then strengthen the decision process to reduce the resulting risk.

Our gut intuition accesses our accumulated experiences in a synthesized way, so that we can form judgments and take action without any logical, conscious consideration. Think about how we react when we inadvertently drive across the center line in a road…
