Bus 7 and the Grandma in the Window

Better keep yourself clean and bright. You are the window through which you must see the world.

- George Bernard Shaw -

Bus 7 and the Grandma in the Window

She was known to the children in Bus 7 simply as 'Grandma in the window'. Their connection was forged by the daily waves they exchanged as their bus crossed her home. A connection so deep that when the 93-yr-old missed her waving 'vigil' the children demanded the bus driver stop. It turned out that their dear friend had suffered a debilitating stroke. While she convalesced at a local care facility, the children wanted to make sure she knew they were still there and waiting to welcome her home...Read on for the heartwarming story of what happened next. { read more }

Imagine how a simple gesture can help to right another's day. And, then? Put your compassion into action.

My Daughter Malala

When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful.

- Malala Yousafzai -

My Daughter Malala

Pakistani educator Ziauddin Yousafzai reminds the world of a simple truth that many don't want to hear: Women and men deserve equal opportunities for education, autonomy, an independent identity. In this TED talk, Yousafzai tells stories from his own life and the life of his daughter, Malala, who was shot in the head at point blank range by the Taliban in 2012 simply for daring to go to school. Yousafzai encourages those living in patriarchal societies to break a few norms to abolish discriminatory laws. In his school, girls unlearn the lesson of obedience and boys unlearn the lesson of honor. "Why is my daughter so strong?" Yousafzai asks. "Because I did not clip her wings." { read more }

Empower a child in your life to reach their full potential by not clipping their wings.

The Problem of Precrastination

It's better to go slow in the the right direction than to go fast in the wrong direction.

- Simon Sinek -

The Problem of Precrastination

We all know that habitually putting tasks off for a later time can be problematic. But what about getting tasks done more quickly than is necessary? Recent research out of Pennsylvania State University documents a phenomenon called "precastination," a tendency to hastily complete tasks in order to get them over with. This article recounts several studies that illuminate the problems with precastination and ways to counter them. { read more }

Be The Change

Take an important task you have to complete and break it into smaller pieces so you can spend enough time making sure you put your best into the work.

Conversational Leadership: Thinking Together for a Change

The fundamental law of human beings is interdependence. A person is a person through other persons.

- Archbishop Desmond Tutu -

Conversational Leadership: Thinking Together for a Change

If our conversations and personal relations are at the heart of our work, then how do we contribute to or take energy away from this natural process? Are we using the intelligence of just a few people instead of hundreds or thousands? What if increasing the success of efforts to cut costs and make organizations more efficient, innovative, and competitive depended on focusing on the core process of conversation and meaning-making through which we as human beings have always co-evolved new realities? The authors in this article ask and seek to answer these and many such question, and provide a very helpful framework of conversational leadership that we can each use in our daily lives. { read more }

Be The Change

Consider how you might use, and support the use of, conversations to create tipping points of change -- at home, or at the workplace.
