Don’t overlook small details. Remember that the universe and all that is in it are made from tiny atoms.NHILL

There is an old expression that says, “If you take care of the little things, the big things will take care of themselves.” It’s another way of saying that every job is composed of many small details, any one of which, if overlooked, can create big problems later. If you have trouble dealing with details — paperwork, expense accounts, and other annoying details — set aside a time during your work cycle (daily, weekly, or monthly) to deal with such unpleasant tasks. Prepare yourself mentally to deal with those tasks, and you may find that you dispense with them quickly and efficiently. You may even find that the job wasn’t nearly as unpleasant as you expected it to be.

Life says, “make good or make room, but don’t make excuses.”NHILL

In today’s management parlance, “Lead , follow, or get out of the way.” When you are actively working toward a goal, there are no failures; there are only degrees of success. Choose to be a leader. Take the initiative. When you are faced with a problem or a difficult decision, don’t waste endless hours agonizing over the solution. If you analyze the situation objectively, you will always find an answer. Don’t focus on the problem; focus on the solution. Then get into action. As W. Clement Stone has often said, “The emotions are not always subject to reason, but they are always subject to action!”

Most illness begins with a negative mind.NHILL

It’s been proven again and again. Hypochondriacs, people who are convinced that they are sick even though nothing is wrong with them, experience the exact symptoms of the actual illness. For them, the illness is just as real as if their bodies were ravaged by disease. It is also possible to make yourself ill through constant worry and fear of failure, because the mind constantly strives to turn into reality the things we think about most. Protect your mental health with the same care you give your physical body. Just as your body requires healthy, nourishing foods, and a balanced diet, so does your mind. Make sure you feed it plenty of positive thoughts

Ideas NHILL

It is this — all achievement, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea! If you are ready for the secret you already possess one half of it; therefore, you will readily recognize the other half the moment it reaches your mind.

June 30 - World Meteor Day

The word “meteor” stands for the vibrant visible streak of light generated by fallen debris from space—"meteoroids." These are also termed as “shooting stars” or “falling stars.” Meteors are space particles or dust and ice that come in the contact of earth's atmosphere. As they enter the atmosphere layer at great speed, they burn up, generating light as they streak across the night sky.

For years meteors/meteor showers have been viewed globally, e.g., the Perseid, which has been observed for almost 2000 years; the Siberian Explosion/Tunguska event on June 1908 whose estimated strength was 1,000 times greater than the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima. The Tunguska incident leveled entire trees over 40 kilometers away and trembled the ground in a tremendous earthquake as stated by NASA. In the Northern Hemisphere from the middle of July to mid-August, dozens of meteors are seen across the darkened sky.

Almost 3000 tons of substance falls on earth every day from outer space. Most of it gets destroyed in Earth’s atmosphere in the form of a meteor or shooting star. But a small quantity of it which reaches earth is called a meteorite. If a meteorite is huge, its impact generates a crater and stiffens into a substance called tektite.

An anomaly was seen on 15 February 2013, when an asteroid - the Chelyabinsk meteor— entered with enormous speed into the Earth's atmosphere in Russia over the southern Ural Region, generating a bright flash, small fragmentary meteorites and a powerful shock wave. Brighter than the sun, the dazzling light of the meteor cast moving shadows during the morning in Chelyabinsk. It was observed over a wide area of the region and in neighbouring republics. Its atmospheric impact was equivalent to approximately 20–30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima. Eyewitnesses also felt intense heat from the fireball.

Those who celebrate meteor day keep their eyes glued to the sky to view some falling stars. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chelyabinsk_meteor

Who told you it couldn’t be done, and what great achievements has he /she performed that qualified him/her to set up limitations for you?NHILL

You will find as you go through life that those who give advice most freely are precisely the individuals who are least qualified to do so. Busy, successful people don’t have an interest in telling you how to live your life. They are busy living their own. Failures or mediocre people have all the time in the world. They also delight in seeing you fail, and are quick to say “I told you so” when you experience a temporary setback. If someone tells you that what you are attempting to achieve is impossible or not worth the effort, take a close look at them and what they have accomplished with their lives. The chances are good that you will find they haven’t done much. Successful people are optimistic people. They have the habit of success because they learned long ago to listen to themselves and not to those who would like to see them fail.

Story
Introduction
32 years at the UN have instilled in me a love for development and humanitarian work, given that I worked and lived in many countries (Haiti, Togo, Madagascar>>>) drilling wells to provide drinking water and building latrines to promote sanitation and hygiene practices.  Water and sanitation are two of the most needed and liberating issues facing communities all over the world - without water there is no life, with water women and girls are freed up for school, literacy, etc.
Dealing with breast cancer has also directed me to connecting, communicating, creating a better world as I am constantly under transformation and becoming a better person.
I am now retired and enjoying sharing my stories, collecting stories through our podcasting channel The Yakkers' Corner as well as generating ideas to support others in their efforts to create a better world also. We are designing early childhood education programmes aimed at the undersixes by creating Imagination/Innovation and Creativity Units where kids and their parents/guardians can be exposed to science and technology.  Am an Ambassador of Peace and a United Nations Mentor.
