Leadership and Change Magazine in Ipad format has hit the market and it's a must. Relevant, practical, informative.

Incidentally, the book is being recommended by the authors of Business Storytelling for Dummies.

Everyday, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts toward others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built up against it
