The Dance of Life

Greatness is not where we stand, but in the direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind, sometimes against it, but sail we must; and not drift, nor lie at anchor. Oliver Wendell Holmes.

These are uncommon times, changing and challenging. Things are not always as they seem. Uncertainty and fear are creeping around the edges, sniffing at the centre.

Life isn’t easy. We all face barriers and hardships of one kind or another and have setbacks occasionally. That’s how life goes. It’s the familiar dance – one step forward, two steps back.

The trick is to keep dancing with the fierce urgency of now. That’s what warriors do.

Building A Business Takes Time

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become. Steve Jobs.

Last week Apple became the first company in history to reach a market capitalization of $1 trillion.

It all started 42 years ago in Steve Jobs parent’s garage and Steve Wozniak’s apartment.

There are a very few overnight successes. In an age of instant everything, we forget that building a business takes courage, determination, hard work, belief in yourself, persistence… and time.

Artistry In Business

Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back; a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country. Anais Nin.

Artistry isn’t just confined to the world of the arts and music.

There is artistry in business, too. especially in today’s constantly changing, fast shifting, technology-driven market place.

There’s the art of the deal, putting people and resources together. There’s art in product design, in the creation of a best-selling app or a new service. There’s art in being able to read a market, to know when to get in and when to get out.

Creativity lies within the person who is willing to take a risk when others wouldn’t; someone who sees innovative solutions to existing problems. Someone who envisages a product or service the world hasn’t yet realized it can’t live without. Someone who through her actions improves people’s lives.

If there’s an artist in you, just waiting to get out….. there isn’t a better time than today.

Spending Time Wisely

We are made wise not by the recollection of the past, but by the responsibility for our future. George Bernard Shaw.

spend-time-wisely-drew-simmie

Knowledge and experience are of little value unless we put them to good practice. As we go about our days, living our personal destinies to the best of our abilities, how we spend our time is important. Aside from good health, time is the most precious of our assets. Everyday counts for when it’s gone, it’s gone.

We’re all so busy…. I know, but as you reflect upon your day, here are three questions to ask yourself:

  1. Is what I am doing now moving me towards or away from my goals and aspirations?
  2. Would my life be bigger if I chose to live it with fervour?
  3. If I wanted a better answer to questions one and two, what fear would I have to confront and conquer?

Just asking…..

More Sharing Please!

He who divides and shares is left with the best share. Mexican proverb.

What  is Joy if we don’t share it?

What is Compassion if we don’t share it?

What is Knowledge if we don’t share it?

What is Experience if we don’t share it?

What is Respect is we don’t share it?

What indeed?

Something to think about in our increasingly fractious, selfish, what’s-in-it-for-me period in time when Western leadership seems to have lost it’s voice and backbone?
