Importance of finding out your Signature Strengths - http://traderfeed.blogspot.com.au[..]ature-strengths-and-trading-success.html

索托說:“你應該從改變行為做起,接下來,如果你能長期保持這種新行為,這種行為就會被鎖定下來。”他說,如果能獲得心理治療師的指導,你可以在幾個月之內看到持續的變化。你也可以學著自己管理你的性格特征,只是要花費比較長的時間。
那么,你應該從哪做起呢?加州德爾馬(Del Mar)的心理學家理查德‧萊瓦克(Richard Levak)表示:“首先,我們必須認識到性格中有哪些因素對我們構成了影響。如果我愛發牢騷,好爭辯,還有點多疑,我總是因為跟同事吵架,老是責怪別人而被解雇,那我就必須意識到得改變一下。”
萊瓦克說,這和糾正暴飲暴食這種壞習慣相似。要想減肥,你就得認識到自己什么時候以及為什么會暴飲暴食。萊瓦克博士表示:“如果你有戒心過重和好斗的傾向,你就要對自己說:‘好的,當我老板過來跟我說話,而我立馬感覺老板在挑我的刺,想要自我防衛的話,那我就是反應過激了。’讓自己冷靜下來,不要爭吵。”
不要把期望值定得太高。耐心一些。索托博士說,要把一種有意為之的行為變成習慣,需要花費很長時間。不要太擔心其他人的反應,因為你的變化通常是他們樂于見到的。

This, I find, is the single greatest impediment to pursuit of excellence: Most of us are simply too busy doing our jobs well to become truly world class at what we do.

In the great majority of instances, the journal entries are never revisited! - http://www.forbes.com[..]ndar-into-a-peak-performance-tool/print/

These 3 Hacks Will Make You Remember More - https://betterhumans.coach.me[..]will-make-you-remember-more-b30a3d9b3136

When trying to memorise new material, it’s easy to assume that the more work you put in, the better you will perform. Yet taking the occasional down time – to do literally nothing – may be exactly what you need. Just dim the lights, sit back, and enjoy 10-15 minutes of quiet contemplation, and you’ll find that your memory of the facts you have just learnt is far better than if you had attempted to use that moment more productively. - http://www.bbc.com[..]effortless-way-to-strengthen-your-memory

This one is funny: "Distract yourself. You might feel like you’re being super productive and focused by sticking to your work, but you’re less likely to recall it later." - https://medium.com[..]-and-it-can-actually-be-fun-99a9c9b95d5b

Frustrated at forgetting stuff? Some simple tricks could have dramatic positive effects.
1) Walk backwards
2) Do a drawing
3) Do some exercise, but get the timing right
4) Do nothing
5) Take a nap

performance


http://highscalability.com[..]6/big-list-of-20-common-bottlenecks.html

Nothing specific, mostly code clean up, refactoring and simplification, the performance boost was a surprise. <- This is a good one - http://bad-concurrency.blogspot.com.au[..]12/07/disruptor-v3-faster-hopefully.html

Is there anything we can do about this when designing algorithms and data-structures? Yes there is a lot we can do. If we perform chunks of work on data that is co-located, and we stride around memory in a predictable fashion, then our algorithms can be many times faster. For example rather than using bucket and chain hash tables, like in the JDK, we can employ hash tables using open-addressing with linear-probing. Rather than using linked-lists or trees with single items in each node, we can store an array of many items in each node. - http://mechanical-sympathy.blogspot.com.au[..]emory-access-patterns-are-important.html

Skip lists are used instead of b-trees because b-trees don’t scale. - http://highscalability.com[..]ast-mvcc-inmem-lockfree-codegen-and.html

Efficiency - governed by your algorithm

Turning off power save mode on the CPU reduced brought the max latency from 11 msec down to 8 msec.

Team work


Building trust for team - http://cocreatr.typepad.com[..]nity-of-practice-and-trust-building.html

One nice article about teamwork:

Directing (hi directive + lo supportive, for "enthusiastic beginners")
Supporting (hi directive + hi supportive, for "disillusioned learners")
Coaching (lo directive + hi supportive, for "reluctant contributors")
Delegating (lo directive + lo supportive, for "peak performers")

A good explanation of what is courage, and the result of didn't have courage. It also mention a bit of how to bulit courage within the team, but not much about it - http://www.xprogramming.com/xpmag/NotXP.htm

A potential issue of focus too much on people, rely on few heros - http://jchyip.blogspot.com[..]12/people-over-process-misses-point.html

Our agile process requires people to spend the effort to listen and talk to each other, working closely. You have to be a people person to like it. It doesn't suit sociopaths. Accidently hiring a sociopath is going to make XP impossible. Trust me, I know. To me this is XP's fundamental weakness. http://jchyip.blogspot.com[..]12/extreme-programmings-fundamental.html
