Robert Biswas-Diener, The Courage Quotient

Syndicated from: Box of Crayons

I like to say that Great Work has three key attributes: focus, courage and resilience. Focus offers direction, so you know where to look. Courage gives you the willingness to take the first step. Resilience helps you keep going even when you want to give up. These keys will enable you to do more work that matters and less of all the other stuff that fills up your working days. So I’m delighted to speak with Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener today. His new book, The Courage Quotient, explores the science of courage and looks at how we can enhance it in our own lives. Robert is widely known as the Indiana Jones of Positive Psychology, in part because his research has taken him all over the world including Greenland, Kenya, and Israel searching out the tenets of his field. He was also one of the contributors to the End Malaria book and helped make it such a success. Robert and I bust through many courage myths to discuss: The difference between general courage and personal courage How you can mindfully develop more courage Using anger as an antidote to fear Automatic vs. deliberate courage How mistakes can make us more mindful To learn more about Robert, visit Listen to my interview with Robert Biswas-Diener.
