Human Rights

On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly passed into law the International Human Rights Principles to protect human rights and fundamental freedoms of individuals or groups.

In 1995, on the 50th anniversary of that occasion, Maya Angelou was invited to address the United Nations Assembly in New York. In front of the US president and heads of states from all the world, Maya Angelou passionately read her poem, A Brave and Startling Truth. It spoke volumes then as it does now. Travel back 24 years and listen….hmmm. We still have a long way to go.

In the words of the Persian poet, Rumi, life is a balance of letting go and holding on. If you  have been thinking about the general direction of your life and think more balance is in order, perhaps we could chat. Text/call me 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com. Follow me on Twitter.

No Middle Ground

A busy mind is full of thoughts. A blissful mind is full of ideas. Amit Kalanti.

If you are still competing with the crowd, trying to look like everyone else or trotting out old ideas that clearly aren’t working for you anymore, maybe it’s time to rethink your proposition.

Here are three critical questions to consider:

  • Who, specifically, are you trying to reach?
  • What story are you telling them?
  • What do you have to do to reach them?

We’re in an era where the winners are coming from the ranks of those willing to creatively step out in front of the crowd. Being busy doesn’t mean being productive.

To grow your enterprise or advance your career in today’s hard scrabble environment, you’ve got to be open to change, absolutely clear about who are and work smarter.

In today’s world, there’s no middle ground. You’re either moving ahead or falling behind.

In the words of the Persian poet, Rumi, life is a balance of letting go and holding on. If you  have been thinking about the direction of your life and could use some help managing change and thinking strategically, let’s chat. Text/call me 416.450.8867 or email drew@drewsimmie.com.
