Speech by CEO of Coca Cola

Hi . . . .
"Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air. You name them - Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you're keeping all of these in the Air.
You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball.
If you drop it, it will bounce back.
But the other four Balls - Family, Health, Friends and Spirit - are made of glass. If you drop one of these; they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.
"If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right."

Speaking Tips/Talartips

The latest publication Speaking Tips #47 is now up. you can find all 47 issues here. Swedish version Talartips # 47 and all Swedish issues here.
The title is "A Self-critical Evaluation" which is my evaluation of my speech on YouTube.

Self Realization

I have been thinking (for a change). I have always wondered why so many people at some stage in life start doubting that they are they! This doubt seems to inspire them to start looking for their true selves in order to find out who they really are. But what do they expect to find? After all we are the results of a myriad of influences. There is no such thing as our genuine egos. The nearest we can possibly come is the very moment we were delivered into the world. The moment after we were already subject to influences. So what are they looking for? Has anybody ever found him/herself? No, of course not! In fact if there is a reason to think that there is a true self somewhere the presupposition is that the present is not ones true self. Concequently, if one finds ones true self somewhere that person will logically be somebody else. And if it is somebody else, then that is not you! So I wonder why people put time, feelings and effort in trying to find somebody else when we can find millions of other people around us without the slightest effort.

Chewing gum is a weight gainer!

I have been pinching mentol chewing gum from my daughter lately. I thought this would be a perfect way to always have a fresh breath without paying for it. She made it quite clear that she did not appreciate it in the way only a self confident teenager can. So I started to buy some. And then more. And after only a week I was adicted to chewing gum! Absolutely no problem, I thought, until I stepped on to the scale. For a year my weight has varied between 75 and 76. Judge of my surprise when I read 78,5. Three kilos up in one single week!

So what could be the reason other than the chewing gum? I beleive that the chewing has mislead my stomac to beleive that some food was on the way. Then, when my stomac realized that it had been taken for a ride it revolted and demanded nuitrition. That´s when my brain got the signal and made me walk to the refridgerator a lot more often than I normally do. So to all of you who are gum chewers and are upset that you are gaining weight, just stop chewing!
