An Inspired Poem: Sparks of Inspiration


Sparks of inspiration, they fly in the air

Tiny but mighty, they dance everywhere

Flickering, glowing, they catch our attention

A spark of an idea, a new invention

They come in different shapes and forms

A dream, a vision, a whisper, a storm

A sudden insight, a creative urge

A voice inside that's hard to purge

Igniting the spark, the fire within

The drive to create, to explore, to win

To follow the heart, to chase the dream

To make the impossible, a possible theme

Each person holds a…

An Inspired Poem: Every Day is A New Beginning


Every day is a new beginning,

A chance to start afresh.

To leave behind past mistakes,

And focus on what's next.

The sun rises in the morning,

A symbol of hope and light.

A new day dawns before us,

Full of promise and might.

The past is but a memory,

A story we've already told.

The future is unwritten,

A blank canvas to unfold.

With every breath we take,

We have the power to decide,

To live in the present moment,

And let our hearts guide.

Let go of fear and doubt,

Embrace the un…

Embracing Diversity of Thought: Are You Truly Open-minded?


"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." – Aristotle

How do you know if you are truly open-minded? It is easy to assume that we are open-minded, but often we have hard edges around what we are willing to accept as true. Being genuinely open-minded isn't about being easily swayed by the opinions of others but rather about being willing to objectively consider different perspectives and beliefs.

For example, let's consider the workplace. In a d…

An Inspired Poem: One Moment of Courage


One moment of courage, a leap of faith

A chance to stand up, to face the race

To fight against the fear, the doubt, the pain

And take a step forward, again and again

It may be a simple act, a small feat

But it takes bravery, to stand on your feet

To speak up for justice, to defend the weak

To pursue your passion, no matter how bleak

It can be a choice, that changes your life

A turning point, amidst all the strife

To break the chains, of past mistakes

And find a new path, a fresh new p…

The Power of Sitting with Problems


"The art of solving problems lies in finding a balance between the opposing forces of intuition and logic." – Sylvia Boorstein

When we have a problem, our natural desire is to solve it as soon as possible. But, while some leaders will jump right in to fix a problem, wise leaders will do something completely counterintuitive.

They will see if they can sit with the problem a little longer.

How many times have you had a problem, made a quick adjustment, and then it snowballed into a big mess bec…

Managing Company Spending in Challenging Times


In times of economic uncertainty, many companies tend to adopt a reactive approach to spending by making drastic cuts to their budgets in an effort to save money. While this may seem like a quick fix, it is not a sustainable solution for the long-term success of the company. Just like in our personal lives, maintaining a healthy financial status requires a lifestyle change, not a crash diet cycle.

A lifestyle change involves making a conscious decision to change your habits and mindset in order…
