Fast Company has an inspiring slideshow on Saatchi & Saatchi's competition for ten ideas that could change the world. The winner of the $100,000 award is this (see image) - The Lifestraw; a portable, personal water purification device. Its resin interior filters out close to 100% of all bacteria and 99% of deadly viruses from any water source. Since one billion people around the world lack access to safe drinking water, LifeStraw could indeed change the world.
Who has the football from the last pass Brett Farve threw in his NFL career? And a new Super Bowl ring?
It's the person credited with leading the Giants to the Super Bowl after a turn-around season.
And he never made a single play -- just a motivational speech.
Two stonecutters were asked what they were doing.
The first said, "I'm cutting this stone into blocks."
The second replied, "I'm on a team that's building a catherdral."
I like this old saying:
"We make a living out of what we get.
But we make a life out of what we give."
Perhaps the most valuable thing leaders can give people is time and attention.
As well as all those other things a leader can give without depleting our own resources: encouragement, support, inspiration (which means 'breathe in', like the breath of life, someone reminded me recently).
