The secret of a full life is to live and relate to others as if they might not be there tomorrow, as if you might not be there tomorrow. It eliminates the vice of procrastination, the sin of postponement, failed communications, failed communions. This thought has made me more and more attentive to all encounters, meetings, introductions, which might contain the seed of depth that might be carelessly overlooked. This feeling has become a rarity, and rarer every day now that we have reached a hastier and more superficial rhythm, now that we believe we are in touch with a greater amount of people, more people, more countries. This is the illusion which might cheat us of being in touch deeply with the one breathing next to us. The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with […]

14 Characteristics of Trustworthy Political Leaders

 A good leader is a self actualized leader. Self actualization is the highest form of human growth, someone who is self actualized is a fully functioning human being. In the past, I have written extensively about the characteristics of self actualized people which can be applied to this article, as well.

10 Books on Creativity to Spark Your Inner Genius

Creativity isn’t just a “wonderful to have” asset anymore. It’s a strategic part of business survival in a world crowded with businesses. Creativity, whether it’s in product design, a marketing campaign or service delivery, is what sets a business apart from the rest of the pack. It allows a business to create the future instead of focusing their efforts on outdoing present-day competitors. Creativity is also a strong organizational asset for increasing employee productivity and engagement, as well as maintaining a pipeline of ideas that could be called upon to capitalize (or defend against) a change in company strategy. Developing and maintaining creativity in a business setting isn’t something that comes naturally to many business owners. For so long, creativity has been pushed off as and neglected because business was supposed to be about the numbers. Business is still about the numbers but the way to achieve the right numbers […]

How to start the New Year

How to start the New Year Renu S. Persaud, social scientist and author, shares how one should start the new year. Let the new year be a time to work on yourself. Let it be a time of self-mastery. I believe in the importance of mastering oneself. Success flows from the intent and consistency of self-mastery. There’s no better time than the beginning of the year to do that. Start the year by understanding yourself. Our ultimate happiness comes from personal interactions. As a social scientist, I realise that interactions are paramount to an ardently healthy life. To be positive and happy, apply some rules consciously. Be Enthusiastic First is enthusiasm. We must be enthusiastic in our approach. Always spend quality time with yourself and others. Approach things with great enthusiasm. Don’t fill your ‘me-time’ running errands or going shopping. This is the time you should be completely focused on […]

2017:The bad habits you should give up if you want to be successful

Let’s get ready to put our best foot (and arm) forward in 2017. (Reuters/Stringer) SHARE WRITTEN BY Zdravko Cvijetic December 29, 2016 Sometimes, to become successful and to get closer to the person we know we can become, we don’t need to add more things to our lives—we need to give up on some of them. There are certain things that are almost universal. These things, if you give them up, will help you become more successful (even though each one of us could and probably should have a different definition of success.) Some of them you can give up today, while others might take a bit longer. As the years draws thankfully to a close, it’s worth thinking about what aspects and habits of our lives we should let go of in 2017. 1. Give up on the unhealthy lifestyle “Take care of your body. It’s the only place […]
