Part Of The 20%?

Steven Covey in his book First Things First asks this sobering question:

How many people on their deathbed wish they’d spent more time at the office?

I think nobody will ever feel that way unless perhaps, you were a Mr Young who put the following inscription on his wife’s tombstone in 1771; “Beneath this stone, a lump of clay, Lies Arabella Young, Who on the 21st of May, began to hold her tongue.”

Later in life many people regret that they spent too little time with their families, especially when ... continue reading

Valentine’s Day et al

During my childhood, Christmas, Easter and a few other days were important days to be commemorated each year. St Valentine’s Day went by almost unnoticed. Nobody I can remember ever really celebrated Cupid’s Day.

You’re looking for Job Security? Really?

I can still recall my parents’ plight that I should work hard at school to enable me to study after school “so that I could land a good job.”

And so I studied and became a teacher. But after nineteen years of teaching the Education Department decided that they had too many teachers and gave us the option to opt out. So I left and started on a new journey as an entrepreneur.

In retrospect I realised that the salaried work as a teacher was a comfort zone with many ... continue reading
