Chopsticks!

A woman who had worked all her life to bring about good was granted one wish, “Before I die let me visit both hell and heaven.” Her wish was granted.

She was whisked off to a great banqueting hall. The tables were piled high with delicious food and drink. Around the tables sat miserable, starving people as wretched as could be.

“Why are they like this?” she asked the angel who accompanied her.

“Look at their arms,” the angel replied.

She looked and saw that attached to the people’s arms were long chopsticks secured above the elbow. Unable to bend their elbows, the people aimed the chopsticks at the food, missed every time and sat hungry, frustrated and miserable.

“Indeed this is hell! Take me away from here!”

She was then whisked off to heaven. Again she found herself in a great banqueting hall with tables piled high. Around the tables sat people laughing, contented, joyful.

“No chopsticks I suppose,” she said.

“Oh yes there are. Look, just as in hell they are long and attached above the elbow but look, here people have learnt to feed one another”.

The Wolves Within


An old Grandfather, whose grandson came to him with anger at a schoolmate who had done him an injustice, said, "Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times."

He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way."

"But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eye and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather solemnly said, "The one I feed."

Child's Whisper

A child's love is like a whisper,
given in little ways we do not hear
but if you listen closely it will be very clear.

They often do not say it loud but in how they come to you...
Daddy, will you play with me?
Mommy, tie my shoe?

...the many ways they tell you changes as they grow
Dad, I made the team today!
Mom, I've Got to go!

Pop, I need some money
You see there's...this girl at school...
Mama, I met a boy today and wow he is so cool...!

Dad, I've got something to tell you... I think she is the one.
Mom, He asked me to marry him. Would you love him as your son?

Dad, I've got some news for you...
It's gonna be a boy!
Mom, I'm kind of scared of this, yet I'm filled with joy!

A child's love is like a whisper,
given in little ways we do not hear
but if you listen closely it will be very clear.

They often do not say it loud but in how they come to you...
Grandpa, will you play with me?
Grandma, tie my shoe...

It is never ending
A blessing from above
Listen to the whispers of a child's love.

Perfect Planning Prevents Pathetic Performance



 I found out about this “5P rule” a couple years ago. It makes a lot of sense: How many times has your performance been below expectations simply because there was no proper planning, or because you assumed that others would do what they were supposed to do (but didn’t) and they let you down?
Planning involves thinking ahead. It requires mental effort, imagination, conjecturing, preparation and organization. It sounds hard, but this apparent hardship has a lot more to do with the habit of not planning than with its complexity, per se. The majority of us haven’t developed the habit of planning, only improvising and getting the job done.

Sometimes, we need to improvise. There’s no such thing as perfect situations and we do not always have the time or enough resources to do a proper planning, but when something really matters (and when it comes to our job, almost everything matters), it’s crucial to spend some time planning things from the beginning, so there’s no need for regrets later on.

Try starting any given job or project with planning. Start off early, don’t leave anything for the last minute. The time you think you don’t have for this will be saved later when your performance flows with excellence and without problems.

Save this rule somewhere. Stick it to the wall of your office, the notice board of your business, your refrigerator… Say it out loud to yourself every time you can — until it becomes a part of you.

Perfect Planning Prevents Pathetic Performance.

And, evidently, practice it.

The Old Mule in the Well

A parable is told of a farmer who owned an old mule. The mule fell into the farmer's well. The farmer heard the mule 'braying' -or-whatever mules do when they fall into wells. After carefully assessing the situation, the farmer sympathized with the mule, but decided that neither the mule nor the well was worth the trouble of saving. Instead, he called his neighbors together and told them what had happened ...and enlisted them to help haul dirt to bury the old mule in the well and put him out of his misery.

Initially, the old mule was hysterical! But as the farmer and his neighbors continued shoveling and the dirt hit his back ... a thought struck him. It suddenly dawned on him that every time a shovel load of dirt landed on his back, he should shake it off and step up! This he did, blow after blow. "Shake it off and step up...shake it off and step up...shake it off and step up!" He repeated to encourage himself. No matter how painful the blows, or how distressing the situation seemed the old mule fought "panic" and just kept right on shaking it off and stepping up!

It wasn't long before the old mule, battered and exhausted, stepped triumphantly over the wall of that well! What seemed like it would bury him, actually blessed him...all because of the manner in which he handled his adversity. If we face our problems, respond to them positively, and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness, or self-pity, the adversities that come along to bury us usually have within them the potential to benefit and bless us.

May God bless us this week as we, "shake off the shackles and step up out of the wells" in which we find ourselves! "

The Exact Amount Of Time You Should Work Every Day



You know that taking frequent breaks is good for your productivity, focus, and creativity, but you just never seem to get around to it.

You feel stressed and exhausted when you hammer away at your keyboard all day, and the evidence is everywhere. A study earlier this year from the University of Toronto on lunch break patterns of office workers revealed the absence of a proper lunch break can actually lower productivity. John Trougakos, associate professor of Organizational Behavior & HR Management, who coauthored the study, argues our brains have a limited pool of psychological energy.

"All efforts to control behavior, to perform and to focus draw on that pool of psychological energy. Once that energy source is depleted, we become less effective at everything that we do," he says.

Recently, the Draugiem Group, a social networking company, added to this growing body of research. Using the time-tracking productivity app DeskTime, they conducted an experiment to see what habits set their most productive employees apart. What they found was that the 10% of employees with the highest productivity surprisingly didn’t put in longer hours than anyone else. In fact, they didn’t even work full eight-hour days. What they did do was take regular breaks. Specifically, they took 17-minute breaks for every 52 minutes of work.

"The most productive employees didn't work full eight-hour days, and they took 17-minute breaks for every 52 minutes of work. "

"Turns out, the secret to retaining the highest level of productivity over the span of a workday is not working longer—but working smarter with frequent breaks," wrote Julia Gifford in The Muse when she posted the study’s results. Employees with the highest levels of productivity worked for 52 minutes with intense purpose, then rested up, allowing their brains time to rejuvenate and prepare for the next work period.

The Draugiem Group’s study highlights what researchers have been saying for years—that our brains simply weren’t built to focus for eight-full hours a day. "The best way to refresh your focus is to step away and take a break," says productivity expert Cathy Sexton, who says the results of The Draugiem Group’s study aren’t surprising.

What was particularly surprising about the study’s results, however, was what the most productive individuals did during their breaks. "Those 17 minutes were spent completely away from the computer—not checking email, not on YouTube" says Gifford. Taking a walk, chatting with co-workers (not about work), or relaxing reading a book were some common activities the most productive employees did while on break.

While many of us often feel the need to look like we’re working hard and putting in long hours at our desks, Gifford says the study shows managers the importance of ensuring employees know it’s okasy to step away without fear of appearing lazy or unproductive.

Follow these tips to ensure you’re getting enough breaks in your day:

- Schedule breaks into your daily calendar. Ideally every 52 minutes.
- Set a timer to remind you when to take your break and when to return to work.
- Make realistic to-do lists. "We often bog down our to-do lists and make them not feasible for us to accomplish [plus] we underestimate how long it’s going to take us to do something," says Sexton.
- Prioritize tasks. Choose three major tasks to focus on for the day and add other tasks as they pop up throughout the day to a separate list, readjusting your priorities throughout the day if required. It’s a lot easier to look at a list of three tasks than 30. Once you knock off the first three items, choose your next three priorities from your lengthier list.

Beginning today..

  

  Beginning today I will no longer worry about yesterday. It is in the past and the past will never change. Only I can change by choosing to do so.

    Beginning today I will no longer worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will always be there, waiting for me to make the most of it. But I cannot make the most of tomorrow without first making the most of today.

    Beginning today I will look in the mirror and I will see a person worthy of my respect and admiration. This capable person looking back at me is someone I enjoy spending time with and someone I would like to get to know better.

    Beginning today I will cherish each moment of my life. I value this gift bestowed upon me in this world and I will unselfishly share this gift with others. I will use this gift to enhance the lives of others.

    Beginning today I will take a moment to step off the beaten path and to revel in the mysteries I encounter. I will face challenges with courage and determination. I will overcome what barriers there may be which hinder my quest for growth and self-improvement.

    Beginning today I will take life one day at a time, one step at a time. Discouragement will not be allowed to taint my positive self-image, my desire to succeed or my capacity to love.

    Beginning today I walk with renewed faith in human kindness. Regardless of what has gone before, I believe there is hope for a brighter and better future.

    Beginning today I will open my mind and my heart. I will welcome new experiences. I will meet new people. I will not expect perfection from myself nor anyone else: perfection does not exist in an imperfect world. But I will applaud the attempt to overcome human foibles.

    Beginning today I am responsible for my own happiness and I will do things that make me happy . . . admire the beautiful wonders of nature, listen to my favorite music, pet a kitten or a puppy, soak in a bubble bath . . . pleasure can be found in the most simple of gestures.

    Beginning today I will learn something new; I will try something different; I will savor all the various flavors life has to offer. I will change what I can and the rest I will let go. I will strive to become the best me I can possibly be.

Life of Dad


 
 Eddie is 50 years old and lives in Worthing with his 13 year old son, Connor. After his wife died suddenly when their son was just a few months old, Eddie had to adapt quickly to life as a widowed single parent. Here, he shares how he’s juggled work with family life, and why his son Connor is his best friend.

Asking for help

I became a single dad in August of 2000, when my son, Connor, was just five months old. My wife died of Sudden Death Syndrome. I spoke to her on the phone at 3.30pm, and she was pronounced dead at around 5.30pm. Her heart just stopped.

Becoming a single dad meant I learned to ask for help – not something I would have done in the past! In the early days especially, I had a great deal of support from Connor’s grandparents, women from the local ante-post natal group which I’d always taken an active role in, and of course friends. Connor went to private nursery two days a week between the ages of one and four. This did him the world of good and helped me get on with earning a living.

The challenges of work

I was off work for around three months, coming to terms with what had happened. I’m still trying to come to terms really. I was a store manager of a large DIY superstore in Sussex, traveling about 25 miles a day and working long hours. My line manager was very supportive and had arranged for me to work 10am to 4pm on the road in order for me to be flexible.

About a month after going back to work, I had a call to say Connor was being rushed to hospital with suspected meningitis. I just thought “give me break”. He was in hospital for about two weeks, where I slept on the floor with a sleeping bag as I did not want to leave him. His grandparents helped a great deal, as did my closest friends. We eventually discovered it was pneumonia, which he was to contract again in a month’s time. Again my line manager was very good, and although he put no pressure on me, I felt I was letting my employer down.

Ultimately I had to leave the company as I could not maintain my job role. I don’t think employers expect a man to be on his own with a child, let alone a baby. Nobody seemed interested in giving me a job so I had to try a different route. I had managed to save some money, and decided to buy a cafe, which I renovated and then sold. For the past eight years or so since, I have managed my own property renovations business. This has given me the flexibility with school hours, sickness and holidays that I need to manage as a single dad to Connor.

Combining being mum and dad

Bringing up Connor on my own has taught me a lot. It’s easy to lose your patience with children, but I’ve learn they have bad days too. So you need to be careful how you say things, and with your facial expressions – they pick up on more than you know. One roll of the eyes can break their confidence, but what they really want is to please you and make you proud.

Juggling everything has been far the most challenging thing I’ve had to do. Work, home, emotions, learning what is the next step in a child’s life and how to deal with it, combining being mum and dad, making sure he gets lots of cuddles, being there when he needs a talk about anything and also just knowing when he wants to be alone. My time management has also had to get better in order to be at the school gates by 3pm to collect Connor. Now at 13 years old, he’s happy to walk home and I can work that bit longer, although I still like to be here when he gets home.

I first heard of Gingerbread and joined my local group in 2002. The local group helped a great deal, and I was in contact with quite a few members at the time. I’ve also used Gingerbread’s online chat forums too.

Remembering mum

I have always worried that Connor would feel a little outcast, as not having a mum is unusual. Connor never knew his mum, so I think he misses her presence rather than her as a person. We would make things for his mummy – pictures, drawings and little gifts would be placed on her grave. He has a picture of me and his mum in his room, his way of seeing what we would have been like, I guess. I answer all his questions about before she died, the wonderful five months we all had together, and what she would think now. Mother’s day, Christmas – those are the days he would notice it more. These days I get both Mother’s day and Father’s day presents from him.

Connor’s doing well at school. He was made school council in his first year of secondary school, which was a real proud moment for me, as was seeing him invested as a cub, then a sea scout, where he became a patrol leader. Just to look at him makes me proud and I know his mum would be too. It still saddens me to think his mum never got to see any of it, and that he never got to see her face and meet the wonderful person his mum was.

Courage and pride

When Connor was nine years old his grandpa died of cancer, all quite sudden. After me, he was Connor’s best friend. Connor insisted on going to the barbers to have his hair shaved, just so his Grandpa wasn’t on his own with a short haircut. He wrote a short message that he insisted on reading out at the funeral, dressed in his sea cub uniform. The courage that little boy showed that day will stay with me for the rest of my days.

The main thing I have learned from becoming a single parent is that there is so much more to life than work and money. 13 years ago when my wife died, I was on very good money. I had a regular income, a pension, and a company car. I now work month to month. Being self-employed means a regular wage cannot be guaranteed, which is an enormous pressure. If I’m off with Connor because he’s sick, or it’s the school holidays, or we just need some plain old quality time together, it means no wages.

But quality time with my son wins every time. I adore my son; he is by far my best friend. We spend a lot of time together fishing, enjoying sport or just relaxing. I have just started kayaking with him too.

I still miss my wife, I think I always will. It’s true that time is a healer, I have a wonderful, kindhearted son that I am so proud of. I feel privileged to be his dad. I owe him more than he will ever know.

Everyone Has a Story in Life



A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted…

“Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed…

“Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…

“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”The old man smiled and said…“I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.
