Learning from stories

I love learning, I love stories, and I love learning from stories. There’s nothing like being so captivated by a story that you lose track of time. Great stories can ignite emotions in the depths of one’s soul and unlock new ways of thinking–that’s why I love them so much. Here are some stories that I want to share with you: 1. Blue Like Jazz – I’ve always loved this book by Donald Miller and now I love the movie....

Practicing Leadership, Integrity, Faith, and Excellence at Work

The other day, I blogged about practicing what we preach. And if you missed it, I highlighted the importance of walking and working with other people. (If you want the breakdown, you can read the post here) With that in mind, I want to share a resource with you that I recently discovered, which I think is incredibly helpful and insightful: a website called Lifebiz.ph. I think it’s still in its early stage, but if you go there now, you...

What I’m Loving This Week (Blog-hopping & Extra-special delivery!)

I wanted to share with you some blog posts I enjoyed reading over the past week: 1) Your To-Do List as a Personal Command Center by Michael Hyatt – loved the practical tips. For someone who tends to procrastinate, I could use all the help I can get. Not everything will work for every person, but it’s always nice to pick up some fresh ideas on how to work more effectively. 2) Top Books Every Young Influencer / Leader Should...

Back to blogland with some great links for blog-hopping.

If you have been following this blog, you may have noticed that I have been very delinquent when it comes to posting. Of course, I have a ton of excuses, none of which I am posting, because at the end of the day, I know I just really need to make time to post! I think I’ll go back to a 30-day blog challenge or I’ll do a 3-posts-a-week challenge to boost my blogging again. And speaking of boosting, I’m...

Philippines in a STATE OF CALAMITY.

There are so many people that need help in our country right now, I don’t know where to start. I’ve been gathering clothes to donate, then stopping to post updates. If it’s possible and safe, I wish I could leave the house and physically do something to help, but before I do that, I just want to get the word out there. In case you haven’t heard of what is happening in the Philippines, do check these out: News, photos,...

Internet randomness: Facebook movie + Big universe + Alaskan Cruise

Stuff I found on the internet this past week: 1) Facebook on the big screen…hmmm. Are they serious? I came across this article and this video interview with producer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, A Few Good Men), where he talks about why he took on the project. And I quote, “If you ask me why I said yes, I’m not sure I can give you a clear answer, but it’s the fastest I’ve ever said yes to anything.” Now...

Blog-hopping time!

I read a lot of good blog posts lately, so today, I’m taking a break from blogging to share these treasures from other bloggers. If you’re looking for some insightful and life-changing stuff to read, check these blogs out: For parents: Wonderful insights about parenting teens from Bernard Marquez, mind mapping trainer and pastor. – http://bernardmarquez.multiply.com/journal/item/293/Top_10_Teen_Observations For women: My friend Sam posted something she read from author and songwriter Claire Cloninger – http://listeningtohisvoice.blogspot.com/2009/07/from-claire-cloninger.html For everyone (especially the married folks!): Michael...

Update / 30-day blog challenge warm-up!

This month has been a busy month…in a good way! I’ll be teaching/coaching for the first time today at the University of Makati together with the other LIFE teachers/coaches. I’m looking forward to this! I also started a new women’s small group with old friends and new friends that meets on Tuesday nights. Busy, busy! So I haven’t been able to blog properly. Maybe I’ll do the 30-day blog challenge (I was inspired by my friends and former co-workers at...

Four websites to read through

If you’re looking for new places to visit on the Web, here are some sites that I’d recommend. Why only 4? Because I couldn’t come up with 5. :D 1) MICHAEL HYATT’S BLOG I’ve been a Michael Hyatt fan since I’ve started reading his blog 2 months ago. He’s smart and witty, his writing is simple, informative, and straight-to-the-point, and he’s the CEO of one of my favorite publishing houses, Thomas Nelson Publishing (the company that gave us the books...

More blog posts from me.

I was thinking of transferring some of my longer posts from my other blogs, so I started reposting some of them (mostly those that I blogged for Victory’s One Life to Live series), one by one. You can find some of them down below…I reposted them on the original days that I wrote them. You can also click on the “Reposted favorites” category on the sidebar to view all of them. :)...
