Stop The Mediocrity

We live in a mediocrity world

People perform one way when people are watching and another if no one is watching.

If we are not watching, we will get pulled in to become just like that.

Don’t sink down to that level.

“Yes, but everybody is not working so hard if the boss isn’t there. A few minutes late isn’t that bad. Everybody has a mess around their house.”

You are not everybody!

You should be the example at your company.
You do more than you should.
And, yes, you will get the promotion.

You represent God!

If you give your very best, you are giving honor to God.

People are not reading the bible, they are reading you.

Do more than you have to.

If you cut corners and came late, look unmotivated…
You’ll wonder why you don’t get a promotion.

God doesn’t reward sloppiness Continue reading Stop The Mediocrity

Your Ideas Are Not Yours

Blog auf Deutsch.
Give away everything you know, and more will come back to you. 

Noa Strupler

You will remember from school other students preventing you from seeing their answers by placing their arm around their exercise book or exam paper.
It is the same at work, people are secretive with ideas. ‘Don’t tell them that, they’ll take the credit for it.
The problem with hoarding is you end up living off your reserves.
Eventually you’ll become dry.
If you give away everything you have, you are left with nothing.
The truth is, the more you give away the more comes back to you.
Ideas are open knowledge.

Don’t claim ownership of Ideas

They’re not your ideas anyway, they’re someone else’s. They are out there floating by.

Balance Is Boring

On the Road to Sihanoukville

A few days ago I wrote on my Facebook Page: Balance is boring.

As I expected, lot’s of comments started coming in.

“Balance is the key to life”
“Completely disagree. Balance is what life is about.”
“Don’t think so. Balance is not a constant, the circumstances that determine it are constantly changing and so has to be our life in order to remain balanced.”

It’s great to share a thought out of the blue and to see what comes back.

Let me explain Continue reading Balance Is Boring

Enjoying The Moment

Blog auf Deutsch.

Do not dwell in the past –
concentrate the mind on the present moment.

I made this video last week during a walk with my family in the Swiss Alps. I was so inspired by the beauty of God’s nature. As I looked at it on my iPad later that day I decided to make it into a short film. Garage Band helped me with creating the music for it. I hope you enjoy it.

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure. Oprah Winfrey

Here are some of the Photos I took.

Talent is God’s gift to you

What you do with it is your gift back.

The things you are naturally good at are your gifts.
If singing or dancing or math or music or leadership comes easily to you, that’s a gift.

Do it

One of the marks of a gift is to have the courage to fulfill it. If it’s easy for you to be a good dancer, or singer, why not become a great one!

What is your talent?
Make a list and make sure you take time to maximize your gifts.
