Planning = Love

I take this from a posting made in September;

"People who plan and stick to the plan often are not doing it for themselves, they are doing it because they also have an in-grained sense of contribution, in other words they have love. When you plan, you are naturally making a commitment, when you commit to creating an existence that gives, an existence that does not labor others you are demonstrating your love.

That does not mean that if a plan doesn't work, that you do not love, often a failed plan will teach you more about love than many successful ones will. To understand this you may need a bit of experience at it.

Please take time to think of your commitment to your friends, family and the group life experience and please plan. We write plans because we believe that planning leads to peace and prosperity."

I was incredibly struck by the preparation and planning that was taking place prior to the devastation wreaked by Sandy. Watching the lead up to the storm with all the various organisations preparing shelters, packages and beds I was pleasantly reminded of how many great people there are out there. There are many people who really do love, and perhaps the USA is fortunate enough to have many people who do love in positions of relative power.

Well done to all the volunteers and all the people involved in the planning of the prevention of harm and the clean-up afterwards. Planners are Lovers.

Have a great week!

This is excellent

Body language does wonders, watch this 

This will change your leadership and presentation skills.




We have been bad this October due mainly to the fact that it has been very busy.

We have in the past 2 weeks had the opportunity to work with 3 people involved in the same idea but living thousands of kilometers apart in different cities. The first and most advanced person is open, has a plan in place and has 2 years in the field with success (at this point we must state that this is a non-profit). They are open to collaboration and new idea. The second two are struggling so naturally we went back to the entity who is succeeding and asked if they would allow us to introduce them to the other 2. Yes! Is the answer. What do you think the other two did ? Sadly....they still have not responded.

The important points to note here are experience, openness, offering collaboration and apposed to struggling and no response.

Being Bold

Be Bold, step back think about what you can do, what you love to do and what risks are involved.

Do not gamble, make sure you are setting it up in a way that does not put you or your family at risk, go ahead and put your power into it. It is all up to you and once you get used to it chances are you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.
