The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.

Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity

Happy Holidays

unlock ProgressDear Friends, let us during the holidays take the time to embrace our loved ones. let us be thankful for all our blessings and lets find joy and happiness through our giving. Forward looking to 2018 I hope to continue to focus on our promise to deliver power and connect the unconnected so there will be equality in a world so divided where we lost nothing in terms of power relevance and significance: Knowledge is power, and education is the fundamental precondition for economic progress. I look forward to continuing our dialogue or reconnect with those I disregarded in my busy schedule. #Kumbaya

Happy Holidays

happinessI love bumping into people and finding out who they are and what they’re working on. You never know whom you’re going to meet. Such encounters can be valuable: If you think about how your most important relationships began – with business partners, your spouse, with friends and mentors – the stories will almost all involve chance meetings. My curiosity about others and ability to connect with people have helped me to succeed – after all, if people don’t know who you are, they are not going to do business with you. Spring is just such a moment we reach out and share our happiness with our friends and those to be.

losingYou really can’t lose, because even losing will put you ahead. You may try and win, or you may try and fail, but either way you’re better off than the ones who didn’t try at all.

thinkposStop saying “should have,” after you lose your job . Start saying “next time.” The former is backward-facing and the latter is forward-facing.
Should have’s correct the past; something impossible to do. When you say “we should have” you belittle past wisdom and efforts
Should-have-leaders honor their critics; something that creates more critics because you get more of what you honor.
Critics frequently don’t participate but judge what was done. Critics sit on the sidelines and seldom offer useful suggestions because they are ignorant of everything that was planned and done. They tear down. If the best you can do is point out failures in others, you’re probably failing yourself.
Participants, on the other hand, offer insightful evaluations that create improvements. They establish platforms that enhance and build the future
Say, “What worked” and “What didn’t work” rather than “What went wrong.” The former acknowledges sincere effort. The latter is negative; it belittles participants.
“Should have” ties you to the past and expresses defeatist attitudes. “Next time” presses into the future and maintains momentum; something all successful leaders do.
Think positive and don’t do anything rush or bitter. As satisfying as it might be, making accusation or sending an email about everything that’s wrong with that company, your ex boss, your ex colleagues, the work place just be smart don’t do it. You need to protect your reputation now more than ever, and a bitter, hostile exit will make that impossible. Being negative holds you in the past and restrains you from the future
Put all the energy in finding the next step up and let the past “What worked” to be the starting point for your future. Better old friends than new enemies.

It’s better to make a big mistake than a small one, because you can recognize and correct the big ones.

Don't Be Afraid To Ask

It’s important that you meet other people’s expectations or, better yet, surpass them. That’s why we should not be afraid to ask directly what people want from us.
