Pick yourself up... The most successful people in the world have been confronted with countless failures. Eddie Arcaro lost over 300 races before he notched his first win and yet he became one of the greatest jockeys in history. Oprah Winfrey lost her first job as a television anchorwoman and her next show was pulled off the air. Today she is applauded around the world for her success. The question is how do we respond to failure? Do we ask "Why me?" or take the Arthur Ashe approach and say, "If I don't ask 'why me' after my victories, I... Continue reading

Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them. - George Eliot I can never forget Hafiz Uncle who left for his heavenly abode on 11 October 2016. He was a very loving and caring human being. Some years earlier, his loving wife also left for her heavenly abode leaving him very sad and distraught. Both husband and wife were beautiful people who in their own way made a difference in the lives of people they touched. Their love and encouragement enabled me to find a life partner in their niece. It was always a joy visiting... Continue reading

A four-day workweek? -Brilliant post! As anthropologist David Graeber has recently contended, many of us work jobs that, at least partially, seem pointless. Indeed, economists have long been aware of the redundant hours contained in many working days, with employees effectively under-utilized in their workplaces, yet unable to leave due to the persistent issue of “presenteeism”—where workers are valued by managers for hours logged in the office rather than productivity. Rather than work longer hours for little productive benefit, we could embrace a shorter working week and help save our planet and our own well-being. http://qz.com/770758/how-three-day-weekends-can-help-save-the-world-and-us-too/ Continue reading

So get up and walk! A little as three five-minute walks throughout the workday can reverse the harm caused to peripheral arteries (in the legs) by prolonged sitting. So get up and walk. Hold walking meetings instead of sitting around a conference table for hours at a time. The point is to get up—and keep—moving.
