Sonia's Palate

Once upon a time,
There were two hotels:
the Waldorf and the Astoria
from the family of Astor
A premiere hotel 
Was born from the two:
the first to offer room service-- 
a historic place 
where several historical figures stayed

Ms. Monroe, herself!
One afternoon,late Summer 
an idea was born
a celebration declared:
NYC, Broadway, the Waldorf Astoria

Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Broadway, the Waldorf Astoria
we yelped.

Tickets were bought,
Rooms were booked,
we waited.

Two months had passed,
but the time had arrived,

like Americans in Europe, 
we walked in gawking

Standard

Leadership Minute: The Right Direction

William Arthur Ward said, “It is wise to direct your anger towards problems-not people; to focus your energies on answers-not excuses.” These are critical truths to understand as a leader. Too often the temptation is be angry at people rather than channeling that energy towards solutions. When this is your approach then you are wasting valuable time resolving the real issue and are creating new ones. Why not focus your time and energies toward solutions, see people as your partners, and lead the way toward more productive outcomes. Anger can be a poison if not properly directed toward a more productive use. Keep calm. Focus your energy. Work together. When you do, you will be moving in the right direction.
