  • Christos shared from The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization: First edition (Century business) by Peter M. Senge
    In recent years, many leaders have jumped on the vision bandwagon. They’ve developed corporate vision and mission statements. They’ve worked to enroll everyone in the vision. Yet, the expected surges in productivity and competitiveness often fail to arrive. This has led many to become disaffected with vision and visioning. The fad cycle has run its course, and the baby is about to be thrown out with the bathwater. The problem lies not in shared visions themselves, so long as they are developed carefully. The problem lies in our reactive orientation toward current reality. Vision becomes a...
    Note: We are responsible for our current reality
  • Christos shared from Are You Ready to Succeed?: Unconventional Strategies to Achieving Personal Mastery in Business and Life by Srikumar S. Rao
    Your actions are within your control. Not entirely, but to a large extent. The outcomes are not. Reactions to the outcome are within your power—but only if you reach out and exert the control that you have. And this takes practice, repeated practice.
    Note: Actions are within your boundaries, results are not :-)
  • Christos shared from Think and Grow Rich by NAPOLEON HILL
    FAITH is the "eternal elixir" which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!
    Note: A very material book but this is gold " Faith gives life,power,action to the impulse of thought!!!"

    Note: Finding meaning when facing unavoidable suffering.
  • Christos shared from Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl
    However, there is something which seems to me to be an even more erroneous and dangerous assumption, namely, that which I call "pan-determinism." By that I mean the view of man which disregards his capacity to take a stand toward any conditions whatsoever. Man is not fully conditioned and determined but rather determines himself whether he gives in to conditions or stands up to them. In other words, man is ultimately self-determining. Man does not simply exist but always decides what his existence will be, what he will become in the next moment. By the same token, every human being has the freedom...
    Note: Man and his future. I believe this 1000%. I think Viktor express what I always believed. :-)
