Community S.P.R.E.A.D

 

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that we are living in unprecedented and uncertain times. From the masked masses of humanity, anxious autocrats and stressed out state systems to emaciated economies, every corner of the globe is reeling.

We are at a moment in time when levels of fear, anxiety, depression, and suicides are sharply on the rise. People everywhere are concerned about what tomorrow holds for them and their families, their communities and their country. Stress is at an all time high as the world grapples with an invisible, yet deadly enemy.

2020 Hindsight Or Mindsight?

Published on Jan 01, 2020

They say, 'Hindsight is 20/20'. Hindsight means that it is easy to understand something after it has already happened. If that is the case then, 'Mindsight in 2020' means that it is easy to understand something before it happens.

Stay with me . . .  Imagine what could change in 2020 if you were to apply the life lessons of 2019 to this New Year. Think for a moment how many negative thoughts, toxic encounters and traumatic experiences you had last year. Now, imagine if you could learn from them and avoid repeating them or choosing a more thoughtful way to react to similar experiences in the future. Looking back, it's not just your own challenges and opportunities. It's also all...

It Feels Really Weird . . .

Published on Jul 01, 2019

It feels really weird but I really enjoyed your mothers funeral . . . The words tingled in my ears in the same way that the first fork full of a good, not too spicy, biryani sets your tastebuds alight in anticipation of what is to come.

Several days after my mother's funeral on the 18th of April 2019, I called a relative to get some family information. After we greeted each other and before I could ask my questions, he just came out with it. "It feels really weird to say this, but I really enjoyed your mother's funeral. It didn't feel sad, it was inspiring and even, dare I say, fun! It feels wrong?"

I paused for a second to savor every syllable. I must admit I wasn't...

You've Got To Love It

You’ve Got To Love It!

You didn’t sign up for it. But by some ‘fluke’ you ended up with the responsibility of something far bigger than you could have imagined, now resting on your shoulders. Does this sound familiar? 

Take, for example, the scenario of a group of work colleagues who convince you to go with them to ‘talk’ to the supervisor about things that are not going ‘right’. However, once in the supervisor’s office, they suddenly fade into the background leaving you at the front, as if you were their spokesperson and it was your idea to have this 'talk' . . . You’ve got to love it!

In Joshua 1:9, the second in command...

It happens every year around December time, without fail.

You know the drill . . . First of all, it's that time when, clearly as never before, sobriety sets in and you realize that there are only approximately 13 days left in what was supposed to be 'all year long' - stress on 'long'.

Second of all, you suddenly have an overwhelming epiphany that, superpowers notwithstanding, you can't humanly do 10 months worth of work in 13 days. It's just not going to happen.  Or, is it? Who said anything about 'human'?

Thirdly, and probably most pressing for you right now, your thoughts quickly flash forward to the madness that the next 7 days may bring ... Last...

15 Emergency Self-Talk Scripts

Published on Oct 08, 2018

As much I love my own company, I think a line has to be drawn when it comes to ‘talking to myself’. I have to admit though, I actually do this quite a bit and it’s not a planned conversation that I’ve scheduled for myself in my calendar. It just happens. Maybe I can’t find something or I can’t remember why I went into a certain room. It could be triggered when I’m driving along in the car and someone does something that was the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Sometimes it even happens when I’m sitting in church and the speaker says something that makes me do a mental double take.

The fact of the matter is we all talk to ourselves,...

How Long Will It Take?

Published on Sep 03, 2018

It took a mere 45 minutes for the shortest recorded battle in human history - The Anglo-Zanzibar War - to be won by the British in 1896. Let’s just call it an epic-sized miscalculation on the part of the Zanzibar Sultanate. Outmanned, outgunned and out of his depth, no amount of wishful thinking would change the inevitable outcome of this lopsided military encounter.

When I first heard about this battle, I had loads of questions. For starters, why would the Sultan even think of taking on the might of the British Royal Navy, knowing full well that it would be a futile and likely fatal undertaking? Did his counselors advise him to reconsider his intended course of action? If so, why...
