WHERE DO WE STAND?

Category:Blog

As I tweeted earlier this morning, maybe it’s time for our politicians to start looking after the country rather than their own seats.   Nothing to do with climate change. All to do with the way they removed the leader of the party. Maybe, it would be good that politicians stop worrying about their job […]

My Two Heroes

Category:Blog

I recently wrote a letter about my two heroes. Really, it was about the realisation that we often take our parents for granted, and sometimes even they take each other for granted. Some people thought that it was a letter of recognition, but for me, it was my way of expressing my emotions. Many of […]

Respect the Elderly

Category:Blog

Upon visiting my father’s selected grave for his future burial, I couldn’t help but also pay a visit to my wife’s grandfather, Rene Bodart. I was inspired to look for his grave, maybe because I’ve met him a few times or had the chance to hear some of his stories. He was one of Belgium’s […]

Never Forget to Live

Category:Blog

My father, brother and I were playing poker together, which is dad’s opportunity to have us around him, chatting about life. It wasn’t about the game, it was about his way to connect with us. At 88 years of age, most people can’t hear very well in public places. Most can’t handle long car rides. […]

Feel What You Say

Category:Blog

I understand that a lot of people use SMS or emails out of convenience or to help them manage their time a bit better. But sometimes, the words we write in those messages hurt people when we don’t take the time to sit down and truly understand the impact they may have. Sometimes, we say […]

A Priceless Gift

Category:Blog

I recently celebrated my birthday and asked my children not to give me anything. I believe that most people buy each other gifts as a trade, because they received a gift from the other person on their own birthday. It’s almost a payback kind of scheme. It may be our way of living, but quite […]

Enjoy The Moment

Category:Blog

On my recent trip back to Belgium, I visited the resting place that mum and dad had just purchased for themselves. My father had chosen the orientation of his resting place and mum was speaking about it as if it was their next vacation. I didn’t know what to feel; whether to be happy about […]

A Son Never Forgets

Category:Blog

A few days ago I posted a photo taken in Belgium of myself with my parents on Facebook, along with the description “ASNF”. This comes from one of my favourite movies, Men of Honour, where the insignia ASNF stands for “A Son Never Forgets”. At the time this picture was taken, I remember thinking that […]

Fears

Category:Blog

After many years of self-learning, it has hit me that I have been hiding behind the pursuit of living my life by societal standards. That I have been brainwashed into trying to portray what society wants to see in me, rather than what I truly am. One thing I realised lately is that I am […]

Success

Category:Blog

For most of my life, I have been chasing success, because my education taught me that my life was only worthy once I reached that destination. Of course, I have achieved a few things along the way. But still, I didn’t feel fulfilled for a long period of time. Every spark of happiness was cut […]

I can only hope with all my heart that I have done more than enough to deserve that my children speak and think the same kind of things in my living years. Parenthood, a tough responsibility, yet beautiful opportunity. https://t.co/jp7ZpV0tDE thomaslehoang photo

Just finished a good meeting with Scott and Stephanie. Embrace tough tasks now and shape the future. On their way to success, the brave endures what the weak can only dream about.

Well, what a day. Helped a lot of leaders. All they needed was someone to unblock their head and empower them. Now, it's all up to them.

I read about a guy I used to know getting off lightly for playing with trust monies. The sentence was way too light. How can you teach people not to do the wrong thing if you don't make bad people truly pay for their wrongdoings?

Happiness in business can be measured by the energy one feels when they walk into an office.
