    Re: 20181215, Article, Taichung

    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    Family moral principle, No. 1: always allow your mom to chase you.

    What does family mean to you? Oh, family. What is that uncontrollable urge to squeeze each other’s faces? We share a long look when, sometimes, family love is a mystery to us. In the Award–winning book Life of Pi, the Spanish-born Canadian author Yann Martel regards a mother as the sun above us; a father as a tree supporting its branches; a brother as someone with whom we can share the experience of growing old. Perhaps, that’s why so many Jewish institutions are providing educational programs with the child in mind and creating courageous family inclusive experiences. Perhaps, that’s like what French novelist, critic, and essayist Marcel Proust (10 July 1871 – 18 November 1922) had addressed, “After a certain age, and even if we develop in quite different ways, the more we become ourselves, the more our family traits are accentuated.” Family is the big umbrella, which protects us, either it’s sunny or not. Our parents are always there to raise us the right way, and nurture and guide us when we feel the pressure in our lungs. Family life has the most indescribable yet invaluable influence in shaping our character and pleasure. Family love propels us into action. How does your family make you the hero of your family story? Hey, X’mas is approaching! When it comes to X’mas and family, everything is open and beautiful beyond measure. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, welcome to join us on this “confession” time.

    Family love needs no reasons; family love needs no theories. Teacher: "Which book has helped you the most in your life?" Student: "My father's check book!" In every family, everyone’s future is determined by only three connected things. Love. Forgiveness. Sacrifice. Whatever family issues that matter to us most, every memory of every family is weaved with love. What kind of love do you wish you could have given to your family?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhmOfqHJQ64 My first memories of my family were the sound of my mom’s smile and the shape of my dad’s eyes. The silent sound of my mom’s smile when she passed the soup to me; the shape of my dad’s eyes when my bigger sister started learning handwriting—his hand seamlessly wrapped my bigger sister’s—together, their hands sailed across the paper. Sure enough, we know family love can get hard sometimes. However, living in family love is living in truth. German philosopher, cultural critic, composer, and poet Friedrich Nietzsche depicted the pictures of family love in our minds. “In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.” Every family is a giving tree, an evergreen tree. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFQZfeHq9wo In the years of growing up, I argued with my family sometimes. (For example, I argued with my mom and stopped talking to her for 3 days, when she thought, being in a hurry, I shouldn’t have minded having a red dress with a pair of green shoes.) Without my parents’ forgiveness, my ignorance would have turned me into another person. Parents’ love is 200% unconditional. They give up too much before we know we are loved. Parents’ sacrifice is--to some extent--an extreme sacrifice, giving us the gift of resilience and self-confidence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG9YHMcLK2Q Oh, family! Love, forgiveness, and sacrifice raise every family up.

    How do you make your family smile? “Last Father's Day my son gave me something I always wanted: the keys to my car.” How to hold the hard-to-catch family happiness—to bring it to life in our hands? Cooking together is a magnetism that controls our family and makes our smiles linger longer. Thus, let us prepare some home cook recipes for this upcoming X’mas, shall we? Hey, what will grandma say about this?
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKnfHdcsa8A Besides, to create a meaningful family vacation is to grasp the golden opportunity to embrace a healthy sense of each other’s imperfections. We make family memories for ourselves--where our eyes are never closing, and hearts are never broken--times are forever frozen still. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CuhbYpgqCA&app=desktop Now, here comes the family with the reluctance to indulge in unawareness. Professor Randy Pausch (October 23, 1960 – July 25, 2008), the author of the book The Last Lecture, had family dinner with a dictionary every night. “We'd end up consulting the dictionary, which we kept on a shelf just six steps from the table. ‘If you have a question,’ my folks would say, ‘then find the answer.’” Wonderful, isn’t it? Of course, there are alternative ways for your family reading time. https://www.humanities.org/program/family-reading/ Having enormous impact on modern European history, French military and political leader Napoléon Bonaparte (15 August 1769 – 5 May 1821) encouraged family reading like no other. “Show me a family of readers, and I will show you the people who move the world.” Yes. That is how the voice of quality time cuts through the silence.

    Family teaches Compassion. Family teaches us how not to exhaust our reserves of compassion.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eM2tblIkL4g However you define family, being a member of a bigger family matters. A bigger family can be an organization, a community, or a society. Improve the Serving Mindset. Enhance the significance of our services. Have a cup of coffee and think about it through this film. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52bORzIODec In some corners of the world, light and darkness can co-exist simultaneously. In some corners of the world, people are torn between love and hatred for some reasons. In some corners of the world, some people don’t so much as breathe in a way that might suggest what their family truly looks like and looks forward to. https://podcast.readmoo.com/ohclassics/detail/20181206 It is a big world, a big family, and the possibilities are endless. Everyone should command the power to treat people like people. Above all, opportunities always manage to find us, most typically at various milestones. Everything starts with education. The founding director of the Award-winning SJSU Salzburg Program, Dr. William Reckmeyer reassures us about it. To be better global citizens, all we have to do is having the faith to disrupt ourselves, diversify our learning, and develop more connections to help each other. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdEwSXFniIg&app=desktop

    From “Christmas” (by Sir John Betjeman)

    No love that in a family dwells,
    No carolling in frosty air,
    Nor all the steeple-shaking bells
    Can with this single Truth compare -
    That God was man in Palestine
    And lives today in Bread and Wine.

    Family love opens every door. Family love leads us in celebration of our faith. Eventually, it is understandable. We got confused. We thought it is blood that makes what we are—it definitely makes us a family and gives us a sense of responsibility—but blood is not what we depend on. It is something more. It is the love, the forgiveness. The sacrifices. The sacrifices for our family, our organization, and our society. Love is the only thing to compose family music of our own. Eventually, we realize that, in every family, there were moments of apparent worries. Or, sometimes, a distant and deep sigh. Eventually, we realize nobody in any family should be left behind. Family love helps us get by. Days. Nights. Years. Brad Henry, an American lawyer and the 26th Governor of Oklahoma remarkably reminded us: “Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.” What’s more, the consensus on our Happy Family is greatly appreciated. Together, in this big Family, we believe in each other. Together, in this big Family, we learn better and laugh louder. Together, in this big Family, we respect the language of heart. The heart of light. Good old light. Good new light. The light increases. Join us. Thanks!!!

    Re: 20181201, Article, Taichung

    Dear Taichung Happiers,

    Why do we have this work, and, why it has us?

    Career development is an open festival of color and choreography. Does your work imprint the unshakably optimistic smile on your face? These should be boom times to happily contribute our best potential, in terms of accessible education and information, mushrooming start–ups, and the growth mindset focusing on learning. Yet, Alain de Botton, a Swiss-born British philosopher and author performs The Sorrows of Work in a surprisingly deep base. “Workplace dynamics are no less complicated or unexpectedly intense than family relations, with only the added difficulty that whereas families are at least well-recognised and sanctioned loci for hysteria reminiscent of scenes from Medea, office life typically proceeds behind a mask of shallow cheerfulness, leaving workers grievously unprepared to handle the fury and sadness continually aroused by their colleagues.” So, why don’t we take a walk and ponder over this? Look at the tree, please! Look! Leaves are changing colors in autumn--because--the tree is preparing for winter. Likewise, to focus our time and energy on something critical and foster well-being at work, our top priority is to create space to think strategically. Think about the most strategic opportunity in our role, think about our possible position in different cultures, and think about how our role can solve problems. Career development is an open festival of color and choreography. The music is what well-being at work looks like; the music can unlock the doubt and fear. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to join our host Harris in regaining the recipe of our true colors.

    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree….. Work, it holds different meanings for each of us. For some, they work and let things happen. For others, they make things happen--they collect support and create environments for transformation and innovation. After all, work is, art. Bestselling author and entrepreneur Seth Godin portraits the process, “Your art is what you do when no one can tell you exactly how to do it. Your art is the act of taking personal responsibility, challenging the status quo, and changing people.” Everyone is a genius. Everyone is an art superhero—a leader. Writing regularly for Harvard Business Review, Larry Downes, an author and Internet industry analyst, decodes the reasons.
    http://www.harvardbusiness.org/videos/everyone-leader Everyone is a leader. Every leader behaves in a way consistent with their values. In addition, understanding our leadership style can help us understand our position is not the only position--the sense of connection and expansion is more than essential. https://www.skillsyouneed.com/ls/index.php/325444 There’s always a verge in every dance, in every step, in every leading, between everything about to come together with something beyond it. Great leaders are like great books—they are adaptive—they allow for our mutability. They reform with us as we reform in life. Real art will hold us at all life stages. Great leaders inspire our commitment to believe in ourselves, to create a shared value, and to uplift others. Great leaders cherish the reflection time to create an impactful vision for positive change. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMnkxdWUvLw

    Happiness is the only route to success—breathe authenticity into it. “Team work is important; it helps to put the blame on someone else.”
    Our heads will be empty, like everything is drained out of them, if we’re kidnapped by the devils in the workplace: bully, gossip, manipulation, credit stealing, thought stealing, etc. Only when authenticity invites us to see ourselves in the same light, can our life be translated into passion and mission. What do you think of Socrates’ triple-filter test? Are we aware that our belief impacts us to feel empowered? Glenn D. Rolfsen, a psychotherapist and leadership consultant in Oslo, Norway, deciphers the new consciousness like singing “Count on me”.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eYLb7WUtYt8 We used to think more money will make us happier; more holidays will make us happier; getting a promotion will make us happier. Nope, not truly. Research results reveal that finding meanings in work, working for a precise purpose, and forging friendship at work are the keys to well-being at work. Now, relax, please. Check out the coolest office designs around the world--they will definitely inspire a gorgeous goal. http://designoholic.com/impressive-offices-in-the-world/ What is more, does your organization culture indicate where your past, present, and future reside? To find our authentic voice for more connected relationships, we have to have the sense of purpose, passion, and mission. In other words, we need the “vocal variety” to identify the underlying values that are driving our request, to explain “why”, and to create the dynamic accountability. Why are we going toward this direction? Why do we love what we do? Ultimately, we can create an organization culture of empathy, which will meet our innate need of authenticity and reassure us to respect each other’s authenticity for positive transformations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0AVEZ7acyY

    From “It is easy to work when the soul is at play” (by Emily Dickinson)

    It is easy to work when the soul is at play—
    But when the soul is in pain—
    The hearing him put his playthings up
    Makes work difficult—then—

    From the dark to light, down to up—we don’t really know when it begins and when it ends. “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.” Life-long learning changes our professional and personal lives drastically and dramatically. “Forget all the teaching of the surface world”--the magic power is already within ourselves.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wcj6SrX4zw American educator, author, and entrepreneur Stephen Covey simply put, “Be patient with yourself. Self-growth is tender; it's holy ground. There's no greater investment.” Yes. We have to see and learn everything we need to, anytime anywhere. Anytime anywhere. Every emotion. Every condition. Every distinction. Seeing is changing. Learning is changing. Life is a journey. Learning is a journey. A journey is a river. The destination moves; the reflection moves; the memory moves. A river. A river. A river. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRcKPpqeKx4 Stay hungry, stay foolish. We don’t know we don’t know. Let our curiosity laugh out loud. Curiosity is magic. There’s a kind of forbidden magic on the borders of things. Fly high to cross the borders. Curiosity reminds us that we are charged with discovering the best way of doing everything. Yes, we are charged with discovering the best way of doing everything. In the era of information and technology, everything is in a constant state of change. To make friends with uncertainties and discomfort, decision-making is a must-learn, an approach to growing more every day. https://therightquestions.co/the-top-10-books-on-decision-making-and-thinking/

    There are no bad days, when we sparkle like a firework. We all choose the role that we have. Take the role as the starting point, but not the limit of our accomplishment. Remember our best friends, books, which always give us an unarming smile and nod warmly. Books approve of our deepest desires to solve ridiculous riddles. Meanwhile, authenticity is the most effective booster for our creativity and confidence, which leaves our civil right of sadness behind and makes impossible things become plausible. American essayist, philosopher, and historian Henry David Thoreau (July 12, 1817 – May 6, 1862) uncovered the treasure. “Only he is successful in his business who makes that pursuit which affords him the highest pleasure sustain him." We’ll find the symmetry in the shape of harmony within the process of solving problems and bringing out the best of everyone. And we’ll be honestly humbled by the symmetry and harmony. What elevates us to thrive in the cold is thinking strategically to create the best outcome in the most meaningful impact. Everyone is a genius; all we have to do is to be well-prepared all the time. Join us. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdUScE7VZq8
