When you help someone you never really know where it will come back to you.
I had the good fortune of working with a young man that was on a ‘final warning’. Well that to me was a challenge that I could not pass up. As it turned out, it was just that nobody had taken the time to listen to him.
He went on to be a Contracts Manager.
I had the honour of being asked to be his Best Man. Something I readily accepted. He is now a proud husband and FATHER.
This is where the post comes back to me.
In a recent message he stated that he will be working on ‘Dunraven school’, and asked if I knew it. I explained that this was my school. so now a student leaves the school. helps an up and coming Manager, who goes on to rebuild the same school.
So the next time you have the opportunity to help someone, remember you could help a generation. The one decision could have a life changing effect.

A man (or woman), learns from their mistakes.
But a wise man (or woman), learns from the mistakes of others.
I love to listen to older people. I realized a long time ago that they are not so wise! They’ve just been kicked in the butt live more than I have.
What others are trying to do is save you the pain.
Learn the lessons from those who have gone before you!
