Do You Demand Higher Standards? 

By Ange Fonce

On a long flight a some time ago... I sat and watched two couples watch movies... while they let their six kids run around like maniacs from take off to touchdown.

One of them  actually punched me... I did not return the punch... as I do not blame the kids... I looked at the parents as the "example" for their behaviour... and the flight attendants were "heroic."

Recently I saw the now all to common sight of kids in a decent restaurant that sold “good food”... eating “crappy food”... the “typical” french fries and “gunk” that passed as chicken fingers while watching a movie on a tablet... and their parents were busy being "involved" with their mobile phones.

Not with each other.. or their kids... the modern equivalent of a "family day out."

I sat there "thinking" to myself... what if those kids had said to their parents... 

"Mum... Dad... raise "your standards" for me... I deserve it."

And it is "entirely possible" you have a boss that lets you do "mediocre work"... precisely whenever you "feel like it."

And the sooner you find a boss who "stretches you"... right to the edge of your "ability" to be "excellent"... your "highest standards" the better.

Even if "the boss" is to be YOU!

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!

Yours Sincerely

Are You Working Your Way To The Bottom 

By Ange Fonce

I do not usually use those words... "work your way to the bottom"... yet increasingly they are gaining a degree of truth.

Trading in your "standards" and selling out your "values" and dumping your "integrity"... in order to gain short term attention... and advantage for a "quick buck" is not as easy as it looks. 

Those who work their way to the bottom... do not get there by mistake... they have "worked" hard to get there. 

Such men and women wh...

If you do not fit in... if you feel at odds with the world... if your identity is troubled and frayed... if you feel lost it could be because you have the "dynamic values" you were supposed to discard to "fit in"... you are "different" then the rest... you are "exceptional"... be “proud” of that and become one of the Tribe... a DYNAMIC LIFER... and if you ever want to "social share" or "forward to a friend" a writing... please go ahead... and let them know they can receive their own writings via e mail by directly subscribing to The Tribe of Dynamic Lifers... I am sure they will "appreciate your consideration" of them.
