Leaders Only Have Plan B
Part of the reason many businesses fail is the lack of encouragement managers give their staff to be part of that business, they employ people to do what they want, in the way they want it to be done. The delusion of business owners and managers is that someone coming up with an idea that could make the business better is a threat to the tenue of that manager, as the manager feels they need to figure everything out themselves.
Be a Wolf Among the People
Wolves were removed from Yellowstone Valley National Park in America for more the 70 years as they were seen as threat to the eco system. But when they were reintroduced in 1995, we learnt a lot about the eco system and the animal kingdom, we also learnt a lot about modern day society.
Today’s article is about illusions, now I am not talking the ones we see from the magician on stage. I mean the ones we create by way orchestrating things we want to happen in life. Just a quick rider there are two kinds of illusions in the world, positive and negative, the latter is also known as manipulation, it’s what gives some individuals bad feeling, whilst the former usually empowers people.

The Good Manager
This week I would like to talk about good management, and what it means to be one in the 21st century. I think a lot of young people, especially those new to management think it is all about control of people.

Living the Truthful Life
Living truthful is its simplest form is ensuring your actions match your words. The word used to describe this is ‘integrity’. However, living the truthful life doesn’t mean you have to explain your life away to everyone you meet. You don’t have correct some rumour you might hear being spread about you, because your actions will tell the truth.
Find ways to Serve
In 2003 the film Bruce Almighty was first released in the UK, a film that explores the idea of what really happens we do a Random Act Of Kindness, through Jim Carries character who believes he is better than everyone else in his TV career so curses God when his boss overlooks him for next news anchor position. So, God hearing his curse offers him the chance to do his job, and after a short spree of selfishness realises that prayers were going unanswered.
Create The Life You Want
If we want to be happy in life then we need to create the life we want, not that of what society tells us. We don’t have just live this repetitive life of go to work, to get the money, to get the energy, to go to work. We should always be able to do what we want in life, but we have to do out there and get it.
