Meetings … How Not to Just Make Busyness But Generate Follow Up Results

To me, one of the most frustrating and time-wasting elements of working in the corporate world was time spent in meetings that were more get togethers than information sessions that resulted in action plans and follow up results, so when I read this article I knew I had to share the tips for the many others who feel/think the same way.

If We Want a Better World, We Need to Unite and Create It

Discrimination in all forms hurts us all if we look at the big picture … the implications of what valuing … respecting one sex, race, etc. ultimately means to us all.

Keeping women or anyone down by discrimination testifies to the closed-mindedness, hardheartedness of the heart, and yes, even the greed.

But how many stories do we need to read, hear, or watch that reveal what happens to people who discriminate? All the stories ultimately end the same … the discriminators do pay for how they have treated others and those discriminated against eventually do win, even if just morally, which provides the peace discriminators never gain,

On this International Women’s Day, let us hope for the day when we no longer need to have special days to celebrate a sex or any other difference because we have grown in the capacity to respect all life that makes the world a better place for us all to live … and thrive.

PEOPLE First … MONEY Second

We may not like politics, but since politicians make decisions impacting the quality of our lives, we need to do our part.

Suze Orman, an American financial guru’s philosophy is, “People first, money second.”

To me this sums up the strategy of addressing people’s needs first because of the consequences of not addressing those needs that will simply multiply over time when not addressed.

As for balancing a budget, we know it is important, but not at any cost, especially costs that will eventually escalate because of needs not being addressed. Some people have the knowledge and wisdom to be able to do both … we just need to give them time to work out both … plus give them room to make mistakes too because, well, it’s a way of leading that is logical, practical, and compassionate.

ALLEVIATING CHILD POVERTY a REALITY

Bravo!
Quote from the attached article …
 
“Democrats could easily pass the American Family Act or a bill similar to it through budget reconciliation, so long as it’s either paid for or expires after 10 years. And as Canada’s recent experience suggests, the results would be profound. After Justin Trudeau introduced a vastly expanded child benefit there, the share of children living in families below Canada’s low-income threshold fell by about a third. There’s no reason US children can’t receive the same kind of help.”
