#165 success

I stumble on the videoclip on Charles Handy, the new philantrophist. He has given us a most refreshing and true understanding of success.

Charles Handy understood success as how fondly one is remembered and those living claimed how his father had touched their lives at his father’s funeral. His father, then Charles Handy thought was shy, served in one church for 40 years as a church minister. He asked himself, “Will this be said of me when I die?” —

#48 earth hour

the Earth Hour event is

a campaign to bring awareness to climate change/global warming.

“In 2008, 24 global cities will participate in Earth Hour at 8pm on March 29. Earth Hour is the highlight of a major campaign to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take the simple steps needed to cut their emissions on an ongoing basis. It is about simple changes that will collectively make a difference – from businesses turning off their lights when their offices are empty, to households turning off appliances rather than leaving them on standby.” [www.earthhour.org]
