The way you affect those around you is perhaps the most important question in life. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ (Martin Luther King, Jr.) ========== Progress does not happen without change and change doesn’t happen without an open mind. Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything. (George Bernard Shaw)
Love, friendship and brotherhood. Grow forever, never yield. Forwards and onwards. Love of the South. Protect, serve, progress. Day or night, we are ready. Bound by nothing. Friends, family, fatherland. Truth prevails. Honor binds us.
… that today is Metal on Seven Continents Day? In 2014, rock band Metallica achieved a new Guinness World Record’s title after becoming the first musical act to play a concert on all seven of Earth’s continents. On this day, Metallica entertained 120 scientists and competition winners in a transparent dome at Carlini Station in Antarctica. The hour-long show was appropriately dubbed “Freeze ‘Em All.” 😉
Today’s Inspirational Quote:
“Destroy the idea that you have to be constantly working or grinding in order to be successful. Embrace the concept that rest, recovery, and reflection are essential parts of the progress toward a successful and ultimately happy life.”
The old adage was always wrong. “Say whatever you like, but spell my name right.”
And now it’s even more of a trap.
The temptation to get the word out is overwhelming. There’s so much noise and so much hustle going on that we might believe that it’s okay to trade our standards and principles and position for some attention. At least for a minute or two.
The latest viral video is for an online dating site, and it features Satan as one of their customers. Nicely shot, sort of funny, with just the right amount of inside humor, there’s no arguing that it got attention.
But it burned trust. It established an image that contradicts the position they worked hard to earn for more than a decade.
There have always been shortcuts to attention. But the only purpose of advertising of any kind is to cause action, and action only happens when there’s trust involved.
This day commemorates the adoption of Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the UN, which proclaims basic rights everyone human is entitled to, irrespective of race, religion, sex, language, and political or other opinion.
