This timely statement can be assessed in a variety of ways. I will choose to look at it from the angle of achieving targets and goals. Champagne can be depicted in the form of other types of rewards such as a huge bonus, job promotion or attaining early and comfortable retirement if one chooses.
It asserts that there must be a reward for success – a reward for hardwork, a reward for innovation and creativity. For example, if a hunter has caught game from his sweat (risk) in the forest, he surely is entitled to a large meal at the end of the day. The bible even alludes that a man must not eat if he has not worked. 2 Thessalonian 3:10 -11
As individuals or organisations, the impetus is to possess the drive, ambition and vision to create innovation that leads to a ‘Growth Phase’ I borrowed this growth phrase model from a colleague back in the days of banking.
It is important to note that the champagne does not qualify for gains and riches only. The goals of an organisation such as a charity called ‘War Child’ I read about recently was to have ambitious goals in terms of how many children in war and conflict zones they can reach in an impactful and meaningful ways with their programmes and activities.
I certainly hope to be clinking glasses in the next few months! Wishing you the very best in your projects.
These are the words that meshed through my consciousness when I dropped the phone after speaking to a dear old cousin…
As I got off the DLR at Canary Wharf, I sat on the platform perplexed and wept internally, whilst workers of all sorts were rushing past, to get into their offices on time ( I guess they don’t want some ‘snooty’ manager telling them off for being five minutes late past the hour). That’s the joy of the
‘rat race’ innit – you spend so much on transport fare only for the constant delays of trains to impact your closely-guided punctuality records. Oh dear! I hope it doesn’t affect your bonus next February mate!
Life happens to us all is a familiar phrase we usually utter when confronted by difficulties that others are bearing, we drew from our own experiences to comfort them by assuring that things will get better. We regimentally say that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Is there really?
Of course, no one can really navigate the journey of life without some challenges. We all want to live and lead our lives in peace and in tranquility without punctures on the odyssey of life. As we have now realised, that there are no guarantees – there is no security (be it at work, or at home or in society at large) that cannot be breached. This reveals that ‘Life is indeed Fragile’.
I will stop here as I ponder my next move in the
chess game of life.
In the meantime, I will implore you to reach out to your loved ones on this beautiful and blessed Sunday morning.
Have a nice Sunday! Thanks for reading.
The tranquility of the sea brought out my inner peace.
The calm disguised the bumpy nature of her water.
She shouldn’t be so calm and clear on a cloudy day.
As the sun glistered through the clouds, the rays went right through her (her signifying the ‘water’).
Let the adventure begins I’ll say. I’m switching off from the hustle and bustle of daily life in central London. I want to cool down my nerves with some real authentic cuisines, some tropical breeze, some necessary vitamin D on the skin, and also to marvel at the increasing architectural skyscrapers of Dubai that has shoot up from the desert in the last 30 years (a vision to turn a deserted desert into an important tourism hub in the world. I think they have succeeded, as I watched with bemusement of different languages filling the air. It got me thinking, how would my vision impact the world positively as they have done here through job creation and other benefits for the populace.
Research has concluded that it is not the length of duration or the destination itself that is good for our well-being, but rather the anticipation of the impending travels. It helps to shift our minds from the mundane, the school runs etc.
It allows us to behold the beauty of the universe and creatures accustomed to different regions and climates of the world.
What am I saying? I’m saying go ahead and booked that trip, either a solo trip, with friends or family. It doesn’t have to involve air bounds, it could be a road trip to the next city.
Have you noticed that the very wealthy spending habits has declined on material things, rather they will go on expensive hols to re-charge their batteries, connect with like-minded people and more importantly to create great memories for their friends and families.
I wish you a great summer ahead.
