23 december 2016 / Benjamin Riege / Over ons
Looking back on 2016, we see another year of drama and catastrophes. And we are not talking business and the economy. We talk about war and violence, hate and repression, doom and death, all of them exceeding our imagination, and unbelievably, this is happening in the 21st century.
Yes, some of our businesses might have been affected in one way or another, but most of us are doing well and prosper in stark contrast to the many who suffer from losses – losses of livelihood or even worse, loss of physical well-being or even life.
We keep asking ourselves, are we utterly helpless just because all this misfortune happens outside of our daily experience and beyond our borders? The answer is NO! Just because most of our legal entities are Ltd. doesn’t mean our options are entirely limited.
You will not change the world, but if you take a look around the world you inhabit, your family and friends, your colleagues or even a stranger in the street, you’ll find lots of opportunity to change some things, little things, for the better.
For love and peace, search your own hearts first. Make Xmas more than words. Make words come alive, bring the spirit to life – and share it with as many as possible.
