I think it is immoral to hire people to fulfill functions, a chair has a function. We hire people to join us and be part of us; their job/function is incidental. You hire a human being to be part of dream and part of a vision. We just did employee survey, asking them how much they cared for our company, on a scale of 1 to 5, five being the highest. Ninety-four percent answered with a score of five! This is unheard of, totally incredible, I love this company!

Service to others can be very empowering and if you find that in your job, you’ll find your motivation.
At it is through service to others, contributions to the greater good, we find our purpose and happiness in life.
Listen earnestly to anything [your children] want to tell you, no matter what.
If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.
Wife said sometime back, and I repeat often to colleague with full credits,
my job is to make my boss’s job easier.
Which I agree, because it is beyond agreeing with everything, but making sure everything work smoothly and every one enjoys the work.
Recently, someone said he have one better,
my job is to make my boss look good
Gotta disagree, and after understanding more, disagree more.
Finally, I settle on this,
My job is to make my boss better, my people better, and we all get better, for the students
Oh well, back to work.
To be successful, you have to have your heart in your mission and your mission in your heart.
Paraphrased from Thomas J. Watson, IBM founder
She is 84cm at 2 yrs old!
Which means 168cm adult height… we shall see.
I have been hearing this, and I really ought to be penning this down.
“We are in the job of education, developing people, both for our students as well as for our peers.”
A colleague just share this quote with me:
“It’s like telling Picasso he has to paint this tree and not that tree. If you let him paint the tree he wants to paint, you will get great pieces of art. If you tell him what to paint, you’ll get average pieces of art.”,
This was originally used to describe the top-down approach by Paul Nurse, then my colleague saw it for the context of knowledge building. I see it as life.
And I day
We are all Picasso, and life is our canvas. Let us master our canvas and make the best out of it.
I heard this couple of months back,
“People/assessment will always be subjective, but with many data points, it will tend towards objectivity.”
