Many people take it for granted that have been brought up with English as mother language. We can see the positive advantage in learning English for young people wanting to emerge from a background of poverty and deprivation. Even if they don’t seek to live and work abroad, it gives them a step up in their careers and their lives in their home country. It also means they can access and be inspired by business and social literature from a much wider pool. (by Trevor)
Today’s post is about a project being initiated in Panama.
Inspired by Simon Sinek, I will start this short post with my ‘WHY’. Why am I writing about it? It is simple, ‘Because I Believe! in it’
_I believe in this great project; It is a great cause.
_I believe in helping others to achieve their dreams;
_I believe that learning takes people out of poverty;
_And most important, I believe that learning can change lives and the world as a whole! (make right choices, educated decisions and vote consciously)
_ Another reason why I am sharing this article – I know Robert and that he conducts his business with his heart and this is a wonderful opportunity to help our kids in Panama.
I always thought this quote was by George Orwell, engraved somewhere on the walls of Big Brother’s Ministry of Truth. But apparently not; many of the on-line quotation sites cite it as unattributed. Whatever is the truth about the quotation concerning truth, I like it!
The dread of delivering a presentation dogs many of us. There are few who actually relish the prospect of public speaking. Nevertheless, we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be brilliant. We mustn’t mess up, must be the expert, must be impervious to doubt, and meet any challenge with a flawless response. Intellectually we recognise that these are unrealistic aims but we still pressure ourselves to be perfect. This striving for perfection is not helpful for myriad reasons, not least because it puts you at the centre of every situation; and guess what? You’re not.
Whenever you’re delivering a presentation you are the least important person in the room.
