Promise got his head stapled!

My intern from Malawi named Promise was playing a game with the kids and slipped and hit his head against a steel rod (a dunk tank, actually). He had to get his head stapled! Scary, but also kind of funny.

Watch a video of him in the emergency room here.

Arloa Sutter points out what Jim Collins shares about distinguishing great talent:

How do you distinguish the truly great talent from the rest?
The right people don’t need to be managed. The moment you feel the need to tightly manage someone, you’ve made a hiring mistake.

The right people don’t think they have a job: They have responsibilities. If I’m a climber, my job is not [just] to belay. My responsibility is that if we get in trouble, I don’t let my partner down.

The right people do what they say they will do, which means being really careful about what they say they will do. It’s key in difficult times. In difficult environments our results are our responsibility. People who take credit in good times and blame external forces in bad times do not deserve to lead. End of story.

My friends from NYC Tatiana and Ferdi have started a relief organization for children called 1 More Child.

Dudes, for only $7.50 a month you can sponsor a child to go to school. That is seriously cheap. I just spent $5 at Starbucks, you know!

And these are my friends, so I know the money is going directly to the children.

This is who you are helping:

“Meet Patrick, 13 years old, living ALONE with his 11 year old brother.
Mother died years ago – dad is working in Kampala, 80 km away from the village were they live…He has only been home 3 times this year! Can you imagine that. In the house next door from live 2 boys, 13 and 11 years old BY THEMSELVES! WITH NO SOCIAL SERVICES to feed them, except maybe a mother down the street that feels bad, and brings them a meal once a day…
that’s just SICK… yeah yeah – we give him some support by paying his school-fees (so he has something to do during the day?) But does that really solve the problem? No – it doesn’t. But right now – it’s all we can do…”

Only $7.50 a MONTH. Sponsor a child today here and let me know if you do!
