THE HIGHEST OF DISTINCTIONS IS SERVICE TO OTHERS

Posted by 104Inc.com on December 4, 2008

Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?    Martin Luther King, Jr.

The truly successful person doesn’t use others,
other people use the successful person.

If you can contribute to others, no matter how small your talent,
you too can become successful.
The measure of anyone is the number of people that they serve.

Service to others is the essence of success.
No one achieves success without being of service.
All great men and women became successful because they gave
some talent or ability in the service of others.

Everybody has to be somebody to somebody to be anybody.

Double Standards Between Men and Women

Posted by 104Inc.com on November 14, 2008

There are a ton of double standards between men and women. Since I am a man I of course will take the man’s point of view on this issue. I especially notice this double standard between married couples. Since I am a married person I believe I have the authority to speak on the subject. I am going to make every attempt to keep this conversation PG but there are also some R rated subjects that come to mind in this area.

To better understand my points of view I must illustrate the scenario first. Couple is married for 10 years and has a 3 year old child; wife is a stay at home mom; family is experiencing serious financial crisis and is on the verge of losing everything including home because of the trying economic times we are in.

Double Standard #1 – Wife calls everyday while you are working to ask when you are coming home but when she has something to do it is not a priority. When you are in a financial crisis you cannot just drop everything and run home because the wife is bored and wants to dump the kid of to the husband.

The Things We Have Tried To Forget

Posted by 104Inc.com on October 21, 2008

We can never go back again, that much is certain.  The past is still too close to us.  The things we have tried to forget and put behind us would stir again, and that sense of fear, of furtive unrest, struggling at length to blind unreasoning panic-now mercifully stiled, thank God-might in some manner unforeseen become a living companion, as it had been before.

I believe there is a theory that men and women emerge finer and stronger after suffering, and that to advance in this or any world we must endure ordeal by fire.  This we have done in full measure, ironic though it seems.  We have all known fear, and loneliness, and very great destress.  I suppose sooner or later in the life of everyone comes a moment of trial.  We all have our particular devil who rides us and torments us, and we must give battle in the end.  I have conquered mine, or so I believed.

The devil does not ride me any more.  We have come through our crisis, not unscathed of course.  My premonition of disaster was correct from the beginning, and like a ranting actress in an indifferent play, I might say that we have paid for freedom.  But I have had enough melodrama in this life, and would willingly give my five senses if they could ensure us our present peace and security. Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thoughts, a state of mind.  Of course we have our mements of depression, but there are other moments too, when time, unmeasured by the clock, runs on into eternity and, catching a smile, I know we are together, we march in unison, no clash of thought or of opinion makes a barrier between us…

Men and Their Testosterone Caused the Credit Crunch?

True to form, economists have offered a range of explanations for the financial crisis that threatens the world and which so few of them managed to predict. Some blame something called collateralisation, others easy money, still others lax regulation.

But, by focusing on the technicalities, have they overlooked a more obvious culprit – men?

After all, it is men who dominate the financial system that got us into this mess; it is men, by and large, whose trading inflated the profits of banks to levels that now seem like the stuff of testosterone-fuelled fantasy; and it is men who pocketed most of the bulging bonuses that even President Bush reckons were a key cause of the crisis. All of which raises an important and deliciously controversial question: what would have happened if global financial institutions had been run by women?

Would they have been more focused on the human consequences and less on the next pay cheque? Would they have been more empathetic and less cut-throat? Would financial districts have had a few more crèches and a few less of those godawful bars where traders hang out to brag about their latest deal? In short, would we have avoided this calamity if markets had been doused with sufficient quantities of oestrogen?

So, who is right? The question cuts to the heart of two of the fiercest modern controversies: “How do financial markets actually work?” and “Are men and women really so different?”
