Have the women in your life been a source of your strength or weakness?

Leonard Cohen: Good question. It's not a level playing ground for either of us, for either the man or the woman. This is the most challenging activity that humans get into, which is love. You know, where we have the sense that we can't live without love. That life has very little meaning without love. So we're invited into this arena which is a very dangerous arena, where the possibilities of humiliation and failure are ample. So there's no fixed lesson that one can learn, because the heart is always opening and closing, it's always softening and hardening. We're always experiencing joy or sadness. But there are lots of people who've closed down. And there are times in one's life when one has to close down just to regroup.

Freud makes it seem as if prohibition is strictly opposed to the enjoyment of the drives. In fact, quite the opposite is the case. External prohibition secretly sustains fantasies in which full jouissance is possible (for instance, fantasies of, as Lacan calls it, the “jouissance of the Other”). External barriers to impossible jouissance relieve the subject of the burden of having to discover that enjoyment fails, that drives are constitutively dysfunctional, being caught-up in an ineliminable antagonism plaguing the very essence of enjoyment itself.
- Adrian Johnston, The Forced Choice of Enjoyment

Managing Oneself / Peter F. Drucker

1. What are my strengths?

> A person can perform only from strength. (p 2)

> Whenever you make a key decision or take a key action, write down what you expect will happen. Nine or 12 months later, compare the actual results with your expectations. (p 3)

> Several implications for action follow from feedback analysis. (p 5)

  • Concentrate on your strengths.
  • Work on improving your strengths
  • Discover where your intellectual arrogance is causing disabling ignorance and overcome it.

> One should waste as little effort as possible on improving areas of low competence. It takes far more energy and work to improve from incompetence to mediocrity than it takes to improve from first-rate performance to excellence. (p 9)

2. How do I perform?

  • Am I a reader or a listener?
  • How do I learn?
    • By writing
    • By doing
    • By hearing yourself talk
  • Do I work well with people or am I a loner?
  • Am I a decision-maker or an adviser?
  • Do I perform well under stress, or do I need a highly structured and predictable environment?
  • Do I work best in a big organization or a small one?

3. What are my values?

> To work in an organization whose value system is unacceptable or incompatible with one’s own condemns a person both to frustration and to nonperformance. (p 24)

4. Where do I belong?

> But most people, especially highly gifted people, do not really know where they belong until they are well past their mid-twenties. By that time, however, they should know the answers to the three questions: What are my strengths? How do I perform? and, What are my values? And then they can and should decide where they belong. (p 31)

5. What should I contribute?

  • What does the situation require?
  • Given my strengths, my way of performing, and my values, how can I make the greatest contribution to what needs to be done?
  • Where and how can I achieve results that will make a difference within the next year and a half?
    • The results should be hard to achieve-they should require “stretching.”
    • The results should be meaningful.
    • The results should be visible, and if at all possible, measurable.

6. Managing yourself requires taking responsibility for relationships.

  • Accept that other people are as much individuals as yourself are.
  • Take responsibility for communication.

7. The second half of your life

There are three ways to develop a second career.
- First, actually start one.
- Second, develop a parallel career.
- Third, there are social entrepreneurs.

One of the saddest things is that the only thing that a man can do for eight hours a day, day after day, is work. You can’t eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours–all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.
— William Faulkner, interview in Writers at Work, 1958
