"If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisely 100
people with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look

70 would be non-white; 30 white.
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
50% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and all 6 would be citizens of the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing.
70 would be unable to read.
50 would suffer from malnutrition.
1 would be near death, 1 would be near birth.
Only 1 would have a college education.
No one would own a computer.
When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed
perspective, the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People !
"Achieving unity – oneness – with ourselves, with our loved ones, with
our friends and working associates, is the highest and best and most
delicious fruit of the 7 Habits.
You can build bridges of trust that span the gaps of understanding
between you and others if you cultivate the habit of always keeping the
promises you make.
Clear guidance and security bring true wisdom, and wisdom becomes the spark or catalyst to release and direct power.
Real self-respect comes from true independence, from dominion over self.
Between response and stimulus is our greater power… the freedom to choose.
Integrity, in reality, is as simple as this : treat everyone by the same
set of principles. This will enable people to trust you.
You can be synergistic within yourself even in the midst of an
adverserial environment. You can sidestep negative energy and utilize
the good in others to improve your point of view and perspective.
Win-Win is a belief in the third alternative. It`s not your way or my way; it`s a better way, a higher way.
We create a fundamental paradigm of effective living by centering our
lives on unchanging, timeless principles. It is the center that puts all
other centers in perspective.
It is inspiring to realize that in choosing our response to
circumstance, we powerfully affect our circumstance. When we change one
part of the chemical formula, we change the nature of the results.
The value of any week is not limited to what we do in it; it`s also in what we learn from it.
The source of our security, guidance, wisdom, and power is whatever is at the center of our life."
-- Stephen R. Covey
The Facts of Life !
"This is a story about four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody
and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure
that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did
it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody's job.
Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realised that
Everybody wouldn't do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody
when Nobody did what Anybody could have done".
