Khalil Gibran (sometimes spelled Kahlil) was a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer and the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Laozi. He is undoubtedly my favourite poet and philosopher on life, love, lost and more. In his most famous book, The Prophet, Khalil Gibran offers the following prose poetry on children.
    On Children by Khalil Gibran
    Your children are not your children.

“Brave” isn’t a word often associated with the workplace unless you do death-defying acts as part of your job (think Cirque du Soleil). My opinion is that being bold and determined are great sides of bravery and we mustn’t misunderstand that when someone says “take courage to speak up” it points to hastiness, risk and disastrous outcomes. I’ve had the privilege to discover with many clients that they err on the side of caution by only speaking when they are confident about the accuracy of what they are saying or when they absolutely have to.

This is something I’ve felt strongly about since my first pregnancy and taking public transport in Singapore.
The idea is that we have better chance motivating a few “connectors” than motivating the general public to be more observant and give up their seats or do the right thing - which varies from moving in to make more boarding space, placing your bags on the floor to prevent “hitting” others, being more considerate by using headphones etc.

In the pursuit of happiness and fulfilment, we increasingly come across mentions of:
  • Mindfulness
  • Awareness
  • Being conscious
  • Living in the moment
  • Present experience

I’ve heard, read, discussed, tried, misunderstood and relearned much on this ongoing journey of mindfulness and to just be. From my experience, I can recommend adopting a plant.

This post pays tribute to my client who believed in himself and took up the challenge to master “Pine Apple Rag” on the piano before this Chinese New Year (31 Jan 2014). He made it, sent me this video recording and allowed me to share. 
Here’s a toast:

Once again reminded of Flobot's "Handlebars" song together with quote "With Great Powers Comes Great Responsibility" from Uncle Ben in Spiderman today. Basically, how we have in us the potential for much creation and destruction, hand in hand, side by side.
The important question is "Who's keeping tabs?"
I suggest you keep you own.
