Selective Neglect Improves Productivity Relieves Stress

Selective Neglect is choosing what to neglect, whom you will disappoint today, and then managing the effects based on priorities. It is a major stress reliever that improves personal effectiveness. I learned this approach while doing my master of science in management at MIT and outlined it in my book, Managing God’s Time. Selective Neglect is more than neglecting something. It’s managing a neglected activity proactively, so we minimize effects of disappointing others. We alert people involved early so they can reschedule their activities. Selective neglect recognizes limits to human capacity ..read more

ABC Principle Key To Effective Decision Making

by Michel A. Bell
5M ago
ABC Principle – Unplug the fan The ABC Principle is an equation A+B=C, pointing out links between a person’s attitude (A) and behavior (B) and resulting consequences (C). The wider appeal stresses managing specific inputs (A & B) to give reliable outcomes (C). Yet, our practices do not align with this principle. So, it’s crucial we figure out our attitudes (beliefs, worldview) before solving issues, otherwise, we might regret consequences of our choices (A & B). ABC Principle – C is the Score I coined the ABC Principle over 20 years ago when someone I will call Fred aske ..read more

Work-Life Balance Seeks An impossible Solution

by Michel A. Bell

  Work-life balance is a popular topic today. But what does it mean? We are trying to balance work with life, like work is not a part of life, and work is bad. That’s absurd. Although, I know many companies exploit workers in toxic environments for short-term gain, and these workers have no short-term practical choice but to endure. I am not referring to these oppressed employees. We must expose the toxic workplaces. Firms that exploit workers don’t realize treating employees well is not only the right thing to do, but the best way to maximize stakeholders’ benefits. An Organisation for ..read more

Volkswagen Corporate Welfare Deal Outrageous Affront To Small Businesses

The Canadian government’s promised CAD 13-16 billion welfare grant to Volkswagen (VW) is outrageous! Is this the best use of funds? It’s an abuse of power, a waste of taxes, and it’s crucial it doesn’t happen for these reasons: Governments don’t create jobs, can’t pick projects likely to succeed, and it’s small, not large businesses that create most jobs.  Politicians overlook the flaws of mining minerals for EV batteries and the impact on Indigenous Peoples. The opportunity cost (the alternative use of these welfare funds) is significant. Unmet needs exist in health care, infrastructu ..read more

Why We Succumb To Political Business Religious Leaders Deceptions

Toronto Star’s columnist Bob Hepburn’s piece on March 23, “Why do political and business leaders treat us like idiots?” touched a nerve. I’ve been thinking about this topic for a few years, particularly after each election. Why do we vote for and keep incompetent, dishonest, arrogant, narcissistic leaders, and then get angry when they do what we expect them to do? Yes, Bob, they believe we are idiots because that’s how we behave. Leaders Need To Do The Right Thing Succumb To Political, Business Religious Leaders Deceptions Bob mentions Canada’s prime minister Justin Trudeau regarding Trud ..read more

7 Keys To Take On Today’s Economic Challenge
Michel A Bell Stewardship Blog
by Michel A. Bell
1y ago
In January 2022, Bank of Canada (BOC) projected year-end 2022 inflation at 2%. Oops, it’s 7% today! As the year progressed, BOC threw interest rate increases at the economy to take control of inflation, but alas, that approach is contributing to the rise. Still, Tiff Macklem, governor of BOC says he won’t settle for anything less than a return to 2% inflation. The old failed ways to fight inflation continue to be central banks’ choice tools, so it seems likely Canada and many developed countries will fall into recession in 2023. 7-Keys To Take on Today’s Challenges Meanwhile, consu ..read more
