Sister of My Heart

“Every person has a heart, but we’re not always lucky enough to get a glimpse of it. And every heart, even the hardest, has a fragile spot. If you hit it there, it shatters.”

My favourite author and wonderful human being. Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is an Indian-American author, poet, and the Betty and Gene McDavid Professor of Writing at the University of Houston Creative Writing Program

What’s your competitive advantage

Two CEOs had gone on a little fishing trip. After they caught a fish, they lit a small fire using dried driftwood to barbecue it. The smell of the grilled fish attracted a giant grizzly bear. 

One of the CEOs panicked and screamed, ‘What are we going to do?’ The other CEO calmly opened his backpack and took out his running shoes. His fishing partner looked at him and asked with a lot of sarcasm, ‘Do you seriously think you can outrun a grizzly?’ 

The other CEO replied, ‘I don’t have to outrun the bear. I just have to outrun you.’ The shoes were his competitive advantage.

If you don’t have a competitive advantage, don’t compete.

They were wrong

“And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself;
get a better mirror,
look a little closer,
stare a little longer.
because there’s something inside you
that made you keep trying
despite everyone who told you to quit.
you built a cast around your broken heart,
and signed it yourself
you signed it :
“they were wrong”
