To all our Chinese readers and everyone else enjoying Chinese New Year, best wishes for the Year of the Monkey! May you prosper in the important things of life, and enjoy much happiness, good health, and fruitfulness in your many endeavours.
Allow me to refer you to a link to a Chinese New Year video production by Petronas, Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas multinational ranked among the largest corporations in the Fortune Global 500 listing of the world’s largest corporations: http://youtu.be/r9i08erqdpY.
This video explores what makes a blessed life. Anyone not moved after watching the video would have missed a special blessing for this festive season. The video is a timely reminder to honour the sacrifices others have made for us, and count the blessings in our lives.
As the tagline accompanying the video goes: “Count the blessings we have, rather than the fortunes we don’t”.
Leadership is making good things happen which on their own would not happen. People look up to their leaders to show by example their head for doing what is right and their heart for doing what is good.
May the New Year bring you renewed desire and energy to lead, and to lead well.
Think People. Think Future. Think Excellence.
Happy Chinese New Year!
