At a breakfast meeting this morning, the excellent speaker said that there were three things that were good at travelling globally:
She was talking about the charity she worked for, but made a compelling case for the involvement of all businesses and individuals to get involved.
The world we live in is no longer restricted to those we live next to. Our next door neighbours now live across the globe.
Our success (individual and corporate) depends on the well being of those we live with. As we hope to be looked after when things don’t work out, it is our responsibility to look after those less fortunate than ourselves.
How do we know who to help?
The message is: find out who you can best help, and get involved…
Having talked us into the recession, the media now seem to want to own the next hot topic of how to “get back on our feet”. I don’t know what depresses me more, that they think this is a good idea, or that they think they thought of it first.
Good practice can often equate to common sense and a firm view of what you think is best. Compromise and equivocation are often the worst enemies to battle with, as they lead to indecision and/or bad decisions.
So perhaps it’s worth reading the “self help” guides now emerging, and hopefully you will be able to say that you are doing the right things already. If you are not, then get some help – fast.
