2 Poems for today to make you think

Poems for TodayI have never been clever with words, dear reader, but I’ve always been impressed with those who are. In particular, I like poetry and writers who are clever with verse. So naturally, I like having a go at writing poetry and seeing whether I can produce something half-decent.

Today I offer you two poems that I wrote yesterday. The first is my reaction to the present cult of what has become known as ‘cancel culture‘ and the second reflects an incident that actually happened to me whilst attempting to mow our lawn at home.

If you enjoy either of these poems, please feel free to share them. They are free for anyone to share, providing they are not used for commercial gain.

Creating a Life Plan: 17 ways the rich think differently

Creating a Life planHave you ever thought about creating a life plan, dear reader? If you’re young and have your life ahead of you, certainly, it’s a good idea. You can always let life happen to you, of course, but it’s better if you go out and make life happen the way you’d prefer it to be. And to have a good life, having money certainly helps. So money is at the heart of life planning.

Now, why is it that some people are wealthy and others are not?

You might argue that the rich inherit money and therefore they’re just lucky. For a few people, that may be true. However, it’s not a universal truth.

Having wealthy parents helps no doubt but there are plenty of examples of self-made millionaires and billionaires. And there are plenty of examples of people who lost all their wealth and then just created another fortune.

There are also plenty of examples of poor people who enjoyed good fortune winning a lottery only to squander their millions within a few short years.

This would suggest that the rich and poor have a different philosophy with respect to creating a life plan and money as a resource.

17 ways the rich and poor think differently:

The video embedded here explores 17 ways in which rich people and poor people think differently. It’s an interesting video and it makes some really useful points that will help you in your life planning. It’s definitely informative and well worth a few minutes of your time, in my opinion.

Please share this post with your friends:

If you found this article and the video useful then please share this post on social media with your friends.

When you share, everyone wins.

So go on, please share this post now. If you do, I’ll be ever so grateful. You’ll be helping a keen blogger reach a wider audience and that’ll be your good deed for the day.

25 Quotes by Richard Branson to inspire you to greater things

Quotes-by-Richard-BransonSir Richard Charles Nicholas Branson, or simply Richard Branson as he’s better known, is a British billionaire, entrepreneur, and business magnate. By any measure, he’s a successful, self-made, man and therefore we can learn from him. So, some quotes by Richard Branson are worth exploring.

He expressed a desire to become an entrepreneur from an early age. In the 1970s Richard Branson founded the Virgin Group, which today controls more than 400 companies in various fields.

Over the years his interests have extended across retail, music and transport – including land, air, sea and space travel – and his taste for adventure plus his humanitarian work, have resulted in him becoming a prominent global figure.

So here are 25 quotes by Richard Branson to inspire you to greater things.

Quotes by Richard Branson (1-10):

  1. A good leader doesn’t get stuck behind a desk.
  2. Material things are delightful but they’re not important.
  3. Starting your own business isn’t just a job it’s a way of life. 
  4. In business, if you realise you’ve made a bad decision, you change it.
  5. Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.
  6. Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.
  7. You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.
  8. One thing is certain in business. You and everyone around you will make mistakes.
  9. If you’re embarking around the world in a hot-air balloon, don’t forget the toilet paper.
  10. My philosophy is that if I have any money I invest it in new ventures and not have it sitting around.

Quotes by Richard Branson (11-20):

  1. I always find the time to exercise – kitesurfing, tennis or cycling – and to spend time with my loved ones.
  2. Every successful businessman will have experienced setbacks and failures. They’re lying if they say they haven’t.  
  3. It’s a common misconception that money is every entrepreneur’s metric for success. It’s not, and nor should it be.
  4. My interest in life comes from setting myself huge, apparently unachievable challenges and trying to rise above them.
  5. Being a good listener is absolutely critical to being a good leader; you have to listen to the people who are on the front line.
  6. Entrepreneurs are natural problem-solvers, which means that we always have ideas for new businesses popping into our heads. 
  7. My attitude has always been, if you fall flat on your face, at least you’re moving forward. All you have to do is get back up and try again.
  8. It’s rare for a start-up to make money immediately, so you need to make sure that you have enough saved or that you have another income stream that can support you. 
  9. Fun is one of the most important and underrated ingredients in any successful venture. If you’re not having fun, then it’s probably time to call it quits and try something else.
  10. Most people would assume my business success, and the wealth that comes with it, have brought me happiness. But I know I am successful, wealthy, and connected because I am happy.

Quotes by Richard Branson (21-25):

  1. Treat failure as a lesson on how not to approach achieving a goal and then use that learning to improve your chances of success when you try again. Failure is only the end if you decide to stop.
  2. Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.
  3. There’s an inherent danger in letting people think that they have perfected something. When they believe they’ve ‘nailed it,’ most people tend to sit back and rest on their laurels while countless others will be labouring furiously to better their work!
  4. From a young age, I learned to focus on the things I was good at and delegate to others what I was not good at. That’s how Virgin is run. Fantastic people throughout the Virgin Group run our businesses, allowing me to think creatively and strategically.
  5. If you want to be more productive, then start at the start: get there on time. Whether it is a meeting, a flight, an appointment or a date, it’s important to ensure you are there when you say you will be there. This may feel like an old-fashioned tip to give, but it has served me well for five decades in business.

15 Quotes by Bob Newhart reflecting his personal philosophy

Quotes by Bob Newhart

Photo by Alan Light

There are many fine comedians in this world and many of the finest are American, in my opinion. And for me, one of the funniest American comedians of all time is Bob Newhart. He’s certainly made me laugh out loud, many times.

Many years ago I was fortunate enough to stumble upon his audio recording of the Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart and from that moment on I was absolutely hooked.

This album was one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard.

Imagine my situation, I’m sitting in my car waiting for the traffic lights to turn green. Suddenly on my car radio, they play the Tobacco sketch from that album. It was so funny it had me laughing so much that people around me were starting to stare at me as if I’d gone mad. It really was that funny. If you click the link you can listen to it.

And if you’re unfamiliar with Bob Newhart’s work then I do recommend you check him out. And a good place to start would be the Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart. It’s still available on Amazon.

However before you check it out, here are 15 quotes by Bob Newhart, some of which reflect his humour, some reflect his sense of the absurd and some are just thought-provoking.

Quotes by Bob Newhart:

  1. The only way to survive is to have a sense of humour. ~Bob Newhart
  2. Don’t be silly and don’t waste your time. ~Bob Newhart
  3. Don’t live in the past. There’s no point. You can’t change anything. What a waste of time. ~Bob Newhart
  4. I don’t like country music but I don’t mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means put down. ~Bob Newhart
  5. People are meant to be in certain places, and I think I’m meant to be on a sound stage doing situation comedy. ~Bob Newhart
  6. The best advice I was probably given and the best advice I could give someone who is trying to get into the comedy field is to take advantage of every opportunity you have to work to hone your skills. ~Bob Newhart
  7. Comedians are innately programmed to pick up oddities like mispronounced words, upside-down books on a shelf, and generally undetectable mistakes in everyday life. ~Bob Newhart
  8. I don’t know how doctors pick one speciality over another. Some you can understand. Paediatricians or gynaecologists delivering babies, bringing a new life into the world, but how does someone want to be a proctologist? How can you fall in love with proctology? ~Bob Newhart
  9. With the advent of cell phones, especially with the very small microphone that attaches to the cell phone itself, it’s getting harder and harder I find, to differentiate between schizophrenics and people talking on a cell phone. ~Bob Newhart
  10. I think one reason for a successful marriage is laughter. I think laughter gets you through the rough moments in a marriage. ~Bob Newhart
  11. All comedians are, in a way, anarchists. Our job is to make fun of the existing world. ~Bob Newhart
  12. Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. ~Bob Newhart
  13. Probably the best advice I ever got in my life was from the head of the accounting department, Mr Hutchinson, at the Glidden Company in Chicago, and he told me, ‘You really aren’t cut out for accounting.’ ~Bob Newhart
  14. I just made the decision that I was going to try comedy, and if didn’t work, then I knew it didn’t work. Then I would go back and do whatever. But at least I wouldn’t torture myself the rest of my life, wondering whatever would have happened. ~Bob Newhart
  15. All I can say about life is, ‘Oh God, enjoy it!’ ~Bob Newhart

7 inspirational quotes about marriage

Inspirational Quotes About MarriageMarriage can be a thorny subject for some and a source of great pleasure for others. If a successful marriage is your aim then you’ll need to master the art of compromise, as well as choose a life partner for whom you have the greatest respect and whose company you enjoy.

Friendship is at the heart of any successful marriage and friendship is a relationship of equals.

That means the power dynamic in your relationship must be balanced. Both parties must feel that their needs are being met.

You’re a team and as with all teams, each of you has a role to play. One person cannot be expected to bear the burden of doing everything whilst the other person does nothing. That’s not fair, nor is it sustainable.

A successful marriage can be your greatest investment. Choose your partner wisely and a successful relationship can be yours. Whereas, failing to choose carefully could prove to be painful for all concerned.
