WISHING ALL OF HDI IN THE PHILIPPINES A GOOD HOLY WEEK BREAK!

Dear All, I hope you will enjoy your upcoming Holy Week. I’m sure most of you treat it as a welcome break where you get to go for a holiday or get to spend time with friends and family. However, I hope you also spend a little time to reflect. Whether it’s in the shower, or over a cigarette, or a quiet moment in between commutes. Holy Week is for us to remember the sacrifice of Christ. And the reason for that sacrifice was because he believed in the good of mankind. I too believe in the goodness of mankind.

INTRAPRENEURS ARE BUSINESS OWNER’S DREAM

Recently, the focus has been mostly on entrepreneurs. Everyone is figuring out how to jump on this bandwagon and start a business of their own. However, there is another title that hasn’t got as much attention — that of an “intrapreneuer”— defined as an employee who is given the financial support and the freedom to create new services, products, systems and processes, and who does not need to follow the company’s usual rules or policies. Intrapreneuers are business owner’s dream. They are able to identify key markets, create new niches and are constantly helping the organization innovate. They are, however,

DON’T BE A MERE EMPLOYEE, BE AN INTRAPRENEUR!

I was browsing around when I stumbled upon Kelly Johnson’s 14 Rules of Intrapreneurship, and i found it very interesting. In case you don’t know what intrapreneurship is, i will tell you what the difference between entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship is. Entrepreneurship is a practice of starting a new business or reviving an existing one by merging resources to exploit new opportunities. Intrapreneurship is the practice of entrepreneurship by employees within a company. The biggest difference between the entre- and intra- is where they decide to use their skills. Intrapreneurs work within a business in an entrepreneurial capacity, creating innovative new products and processes

HOW TO SET A MEANINGFUL RESOLUTIONS

While i was on the way to Soetta airport last morning, i thought about my new year’s resolution.. and a story. Once upon a time, there’s an old farmer who has a dog sitting by the roadside waiting for vehicles to come around. As soon as one comes he will run down the road, barking and trying to overtake it. One day a next-doored neighbour asks the farmer what if the dog ever catches a car. The farmer replies.. “That isn’t what i bother. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught one..” Many people in

HAPPY NEW YEAR… TO A NEW BEGINNING

2012 was a really challenging year. At times it almost felt almost overwhelming. I was mentally exhausted and had little interest in what was going on.  I needed the time to regroup and to reassess my life and what was happening around me. And I think I figured things out somewhat. Enough to give me the hope and courage to face 2013 head on, excited and fully recharged.I looked inwards to find what was really important to me, and I decided that instead of delaying it, I should start living life the way I always felt I should. I cannot

RULES FOR BEING HUMAN

Came across this while searching for material and I really like this. It makes a lot of sense and I think it is worthwhile reading through these “rules” a couple of times just to see if they apply to you. You will receive a body.  You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for as long as you live.  How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life. You will learn lessons.  You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called Life.  Each
