YoTrip-Words and Thoughts for Friday, May 28, 2010-QUIET Time (Vol.5, Iss.12)


QUIET time is a golden gift which is often taken lightly or for granted. It is in the stillness of time that clarity unfolds, ideas evolve, creativity takes flight and God speaks to our spirit. Allow yourself to be open to silent moments as a time of reflection.” 5/28/10
~~YoTrip

Tuesday Thoughts by YoTrip for May 25,2010-From Student to Graduate (Vol.5, Iss. 4)


From Student to Graduate

In the mist of what is known as “graduation season”, I pause to reflect on the fact that nearly a quarter of a century has passed since I was caught up in the excitement, joy, and bittersweet moments that brought my high school years to a close.It seems like yesterday when we gathered at the tunnel entrance of the Augusta-Richmond County Civic Center in our uniform attire: white dresses, flesh-colored hosiery, black shoes for the girls and white shirts, black pants, black tie and black shoes for the guys. We all put on our caps and gowns either red or gray in to represent our Lucy Craft Laney, “Wildcat Pride”. We lined up two by two like we had practiced and soon were marching in to the screams and shouts of family and friends.

The program when on through the perfunctory listing of items to complete. Our two top classmates gave us encouragement and keys to success in their speeches. The band played wonderful songs and the chorus was great. The moment we all had waited for was to hear that it was time to receive our diploma. We lined up in alphabetical order, row by row and walked to the right side of the stage when your name was called you approached, received the diploma and walked to the other side of the stage to exit. In the course of taking those steps we went from student to graduate. Our first major accomplishment under our belts, the world was ahead of us and the sky was the limit.

Today the Class of 2010 will follow a similar program and path to achieve their accomplishment of taking steps to move from student to graduate. For all the graduates, completing their education was the first step to wherever they seek to find a place of significance and a level of success. The Class of 1985 and other reunion classes will sit behind you in solidarity and support, beaming with “Wildcat Pride” and knowing the best in your life is yet to come.

Accountable Accountability can be applied in every aspect of your life: personally, professionally, and socially. Each of these areas in life offers a different opportunity for Accountable Accountability.

Hold Your Feet To The Fire, A Lesson On Accountable Accountability, Part 1

Hold your feet to the fire-To hold one accountable for a commitment, make good on a promise.Pertains to torture used during the Crusade’s. As a method for extracting confession for heresy, non-believers were positioned in a manner that allowed the inquisitor to apply flames to the feet of the accused. This was done until the accused confessed or died.http://www.americanidioms.net/Hold-your-feet-to-the-fire/

In a recent conversation the phrase, “Hold Your Feet To Fire” was mentioned as a way to address the notion of Accountable Accountability for those in positions of power. “Hold Your Feet To The Fire” is an ancient concept that dates back to a period in history when it was used as a torture exercise to get a person to confess to their beliefs or die from the painful injury. In modern times, “Hold Your Feet To The Fire” has been associated with politicians, business executives, and others in leadership positions. “Hold Your Feet To The Fire” can be used as a method of Accountable Accountability for those who commit, promise or are expected to accomplish a task. The popular catch phrase of “Hold Your Feet To The Fire” should not just be reserved for the politician, business executive or leader but for everyone who makes a promise or commits to getting things accomplished.
