Leadership perspective from the desiderata-words for life: “No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

I just had a conversation with a friend who left me with those words: “No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

I thanked her for her wisdom telling her what I learned from my 14 years old son: “sharing is caring”. I also learned from Orrin Woodward, co-authored two NY Times bestselling books: LeaderShift & Launching a Leadership Revolution, who  leads a compensated community  of leaders that I’m part of : “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.”

I know how much my friend cares having doing social business with her for the last 5 years.

She promptly replied: “Not my words…I’ve borrowed them from The Desiderata…a good life treatise.  You’d love it from a leadership perspective.”

She copied and pasted me this link to our chat conversation. Waoh! It’s a brand new territory for me to discover The Desiderata- Words for Life by  Max Ehrmann.

Learn to “Be yourself,”  and understand “You are a child of the universe,no less than the trees and the stars;you have a right to be here.And whether or not it is clear to you,no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.”

The editor notes this poem  is a list of things desirable in life.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

And Live Intentionally For Excellence. LIFE.

God bless,
