Missed Blogging and you my friends

A Visit to Koko Community Delta StateHello,
How have you been? I missed you; my blogging community, friends and family. I missed reading all the beautiful, intriguing and creative posts. Last week was a “slow down week” for me. I simply could not write or post anything…there was just this lack of inspiration hanging in my head and heart. Seriously again i wonder whether it is OK to take some time off scheduled posting on one’s blog. Ever reading about how to grow viewing on my blog and staying connected i felt like i was not tending to my garden not intentionally though.

The question about why i am blogging pops up in between the days i couldn’t post anything. So here is the deal i want to learn from my successful neighbors and keep working hard at blogging but hey...there would be days to take a break and attend to life outside the blogosphere. Therefore if you do get a break from blogging for a while don’t beat yourself so hard or freak out. Get right back at it as soon as you can and have fun doing it.

Missed you and hope to be able to catch up on all the juicy,interesting and creative posts. I would also be sharing my thoughts on stories and issues that have been bouncing around in my head.

Thank you for staying with me; have a great week.

Thoughts on Leadership/Management

A photograph taken with the statue of Mahatma Gandhi , leader of the Indian Independence movement reminds me that leaders are made not born. No leader remains forever for times and seasons pass and life just moves on. Therefore leadership is a privilege and an art that must be learned. We learn from the success and failings of past leaders in every field. Here are a few thoughts on how to succeed at leadership/management:

Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted. Anonymous

Be prepared to look at unusual opportunities. Richard Templar

Breaking out of familiar thought patterns and coming up with new possibilities; it is one of the keys to improving creativity. Lloyd King

Being creative is about finding new and different ways to solve a problem. Richard Templar

Too much management and you stagnate. Too much leadership and you get nowhere. Embrace the challenge of striking a balance. The management and leadership network

The really good managers are also leaders – They inspire and motivate, encourage and enthuse. Richard Templar.

These are thought lines i garnered from a book i am reading currently- “The Rules of Management” by Richard Templar. It is funny, witty and practical. No one is paying me for this just sharing something i believe would be useful for anyone wearing or thinking of putting on leadership shoes.

Finding beauty on the Farm

MILLIPEDEOn a visit to grandpa’s farm and i couldn’t resist taking the picture of this lone millipede crawling gently along the ground. It beautifully blended in with the pavement. Inspired by Mundane Monday photo challenge which is all about finding beauty in the little everyday things around you.

Have a great week!!!
