What’s wrong is always available, and so is what’s right. I love Christmas because it’s a time to be thankful for the wonderful people in our lives and the blessings in our lives. It’s a time to smile seeing our daughters get up early to open their stockings and rip into their presents, and to feel even greater seeing the joy they get giving presents to others. It’s a time to have fun preparing a meal together and sharing it.
Or you can focus on the commercialisation of a holiday for big corporates to get richer.
Same exact situation, different focus, different meaning, vastly different experience.
It’s a choice.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
