    Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear. So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived on at the end. It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant. So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? What will matter is not what you bought but what you built, not what you got but what you gave. What will matter is not your success but your significance. What will matter is not what you ...... Read Full Post

    OUT of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my SOUL.

    A tourist complimented the local fishermen on the quality of their fish and asked how long it took him to catch them. "Not very long." they answered in unison. "Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" The fishermen explained that their small catches were sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families. "But what do you do with the rest of your time?" "We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives. In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. We have a full life." The tourist interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you! You should start by fishing longer every day.You can then sell the extra fish you catch.With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat." "And after that?" "With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Ins...... Read Full Post

    Wanneer ek ‘n man sien wat nie sy vrou op die hande dra nie, of selfs net hard met haar praat, of wanneer ‘n vrou nie trots van haar man praat nie, dan kom daar ‘n onbedwingbare begeerte by my op om vir hom of haar te sê: “Jy behoort te weet hoekom Johny Lingo 10 koeie vir sy vrou betaal het.” Toe ek destyds deur die Sentrale Amerika’s getoer het, wou ek die eiland Kiniwata besoek. Terwyl ek op pad was daarheen, het ek op ‘n kleinerige naburige eiland oorgeslaap. Daar het ek gevra wie sou hul aanbeveel om my te help op Kiniwata. Almal het Johny Lingo aanbeveel: Hy sou my die beste en goedkoopste losies bied, wys waar die vis die beste byt, my help onderhandel om die meeste afslag op pêrels te kry. Daarby besit hy ‘n hele klomp ondernemings wat hy self bedryf. Almal het hom hoog aangeskryf, ‘n eerlike, hardwerkende jong entrepreneur! Maar, wanneer hul van hom praat, gee almal so ‘n skalkse laggie --- so half spottend. Toe iemand my weer vertel hoe goed Johny kan onder...... Read Full Post

    LEES ' N BIETJIE DIE MAN SE WARE WOORDE: Wees altyd dankbaar vir alles wat jy het en lewe eenvoudig. Hoe minder goeters jy het, hoe minder wharries het jy ..en hoe lekkerder slaap jy! Wees onvoorwaardelik lief vir jou gesin en familie en aanvaar elkeen presies net soos hy/sy daar is ...vriende kan jy kies, familie nie! Moenie toelaat dat jou brein muf met 'issues' soos onvergewensgesindheid, skuldgevoelens of grudges nie ...sorteer alle twak uit nog voor die son sak! Hardloop jou lewens-spiedomitir in die rooi ..help waar jy kan en lewe voluit terwyl jy nog lewe in jou het ...'use it - or lose it'! Geniet die eenvoudige dinge. Die 'image'-goed en 'keeping up with the Jones' is sommer 'n pot snot ...hulle (die Jones') sit in elk geval nou in Ozzie. (of USA of UK- ma hulle's ongelukkig Family so daa's no getting rid of them) Al wys die 'replay' duidelik dat hy verkeerd is ...maak vrede met die ref se beslissings en jy sal dadelik beter voel! - Vermy bedompige......
