The Introverted Leader - Quiet Revolution
Tim, an introverted coaching client, shared an impactful strategy that his boss, Priya, used before one-on-one meetings. Priya is an extrovert, but she knew that Tim valued time for reflection. He said, “Before a critical meeting, she would come by my office, drop off a written proposal and say, ‘I need you to look at this. I will be back in 10 minutes.’ This one action helped us both tremendously.” Priya gave Tim needed time to think about the proposal, and by coming back in a few minutes, she flexed to his needs.

Ceylan Yeginsu. NYTimes. July 19, 2018

LONDON — Dim the lights. Silence the piped-in music. Turn down the checkout beeps. For an hour on Saturdays, a British supermarket chain is introducing a weekly “quieter hour” aimed at helping people with autism have a better shopping experience by easing sensory overload.

The move by the supermarket, Morrisons, which begins on Saturday and runs from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., has been welcomed by the National Autistic Society, which says that even small changes can make a big difference in the lives of people with autism and their families.

A Quiet Conversation With A Young Prince - Siddha Performance
Me: Your suffering does not come from conquest. Your suffering comes from the significance that you attach to it.

You: Do you not believe conquest to be significant?

Me: Tell me, young prince. If you do not conquer, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: If you succeed in conquering, will you one day die?

You: Yes.

Me: Then how can there be any significance?


Me: My dear prince, the bliss is in the conquering. Suffering is in the “having conquered.”

You: No significance.

Me: Indeed, young prince . . . Indeed.

Your Quiet Journey To The End Of The Earth - Siddha Performance
as I sit back and look at my life, I realize what a fool I have been. I have accepted my life as a drama of events in which I play the lead role. And I have surrendered my equanimity to the fickle hand of circumstance.

I will do that no longer. For I have finally glimpsed the strings behind the stage. It is all a grand drama. A glorious, life-sized play. It unfolds before my eyes. I can watch it and enjoy. But I no longer need to be a part of it.

Mementos and Memories
Castiel is a man making his way across the chasm between divinity and humanity. A distance between who he was, and who he is now. Along the way he learns about himself, the family he finds, the memories he makes, and all of the moments he manages to capture in-between.
