I wrote this in 2004 as the values and principals I both wanted to live by and to strive for. It hung on the wall of my office for many years. More than a decade later, these values and principles are still the guiding force in my life.
Be The Change You Want to See In the World…

Make someone’s life a little easier – Give generously of yourself
Give your 100% to everything you do – Work diligently
Find fulfilment in everything you do – Chose your time wisely
Balance your life – Emotional, physical and spiritual
Lead by example – Empower yourself and others
Negotiate – Seek to be fair in all you dealings
Seek to understand – Before being understood
Connect with the Force – Live principal-centred, positive & up-beat
Remember life is a lesson – Allow for mistakes, be forgiving
Contribute To Society

I am teacher, leader, and sometimes a visionary. I am spiritual, empowered and most importantly, I am responsible.
The difference you make today, counts in all our tomorrow’s.
