A calling is what calls you. A career is what you carry along with you. Some people ignore what they are called to and would rather carry around what they really should not be. A calling opens doors to destiny. Careers keep you busy doing something useful. If you can combine the two many people would like to be you.Allan Bukusi

I started this year with 20,000 hits on this blog. I said I would be satisfied if I managed to get another 20,000 hits by the end of the year. 100% growth would be ok for me. I never really thought that anyone would be interested to read what I wrote. You can imagine my pleasure to close the year having touched lives 600,000 times around the world of people I will never know! Now I don’t know much about you, but there is something that you do that you don’t think much of. Maybe it’s your smile. Maybe it’s the way you do things. Maybe it is your work or maybe it is just praying for other folks. Whatever it is I urge you to keep doing it. You never know who needs it. But that is not my wish for you next year. My wish for you in 2015 is that you would grow to know that you are worth far much more than you think of yourself. Happy New Year!

It is 48 Hours to Christmas. What will make this Christmas different from the last – will you avoid the standard last minute rush? Will you get presents for everyone and get everyone on your Santa list? I don’t know if that will make a difference, but here is what I would like you to do. Stop and think for a moment about what Christmas means to you. Think about what Christmas would be without you. Then think of all the moments, the hours and days as presents you can thank God for since last Christmas – then do what you have to do – And a Merry Christmas to you!

I have just completed a refreshing training program for managers who had never seen leadership as an organization competence; that ensures the efficiency, effectiveness and future of a business organization. We often assume that everyone knows this, but the sad thing is that we hardly act according to our beliefs. In fact, many organizations actually act contrary to the efforts of acquiring good leaders by not developing them once they are hired. These leaders are run down and decline in senior positions in the sincere belief that they know all there is to know about leadership. Many businesses grow their leaders by “experience”. If you use this non-challenging method as the only method of leadership development, you may develop passive or leaders who become loyal adherents to poor methods and then wonder why things never seem to change.
