POSITRACTION: Viktor Frankl on the Human Spirit

2015-Apr-19

How We Elevate Each Other: Viktor Frankl on the Human Spirit and Why Idealism Is the Best Realism
by Maria Popova

*** begin quote ***

“If we take man as he really is, we make him worse. But if we overestimate him … we promote him to what he really can be.”

Austrian psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl (March 26, 1905–September 2, 1997) is a timeless testament to the luminous tenacity of the human spirit. His 1946 psychological memoir Man’s Search for Meaning (public library) is one of the most vital books ever written, and one of the most vitalizing one could ever read — a wealth of insight on how to persevere through troubled times and what it means to live fully.

*** end quote ***

I read this book very early in my educational years. (Wish I could remember when?)

I was amazed at the death camp side; the humanity came in by osmosis.

Soon after that, I became a “manager” at AT&T. I said many times that as a supervisor, the tile should be “leader”.

(“Manage Things and Lead People” — David T. Morgenthaler)

And, I hated to do appraisals. So I didn’t! I let my people set their own objectives (i.e., lines of correct code was a big metric in those days). I put down on a scrap of paper what I thought each one of my four people could reasonably accomplish. Didn’t show anyone. EVERY one of the four people ESTIMATE higher 25 to 200%; EVERYONE delivered more than they estimated.

An my “leadership” couldn’t understand how I made that happen. They called me “Simon Legree”. But I just patiently explained Frankl and expectations. I’ve never been disappointed by letting folks set their own targets.

I was amazed to see this video.

Wish I could have heard him live.

Fully agree, but you’ve got a typo to fix in your last sentence: pretty sure you mean “stuff they CAN’T print…”

instead of “can”

1951 – 2015 | Obituary

Steven R. Miola, April 19, 2015, of Lansdale.

Beloved husband of Paula Sarday, passed away on April 19, 2015.

Loving father of Anthony, Steven and Joseph. Also survived by mother Annette, twin brother, Robert, as well as nephew and godson Daniel, nieces Sr. Fiat, Sr. Panagia, Rose, and stepson Shawn.

Steve was born on August 30, 1951 in Brooklyn, New York, attended Archbishop Molloy High School and Manhattan College, and then continued studies at Temple University, obtaining a Masters and Ph.D. in Biometrics.

His generosity led him to become a Knight Commander in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem dedicated to the preservation and propagation of the Catholic faith in the Holy Land through prayer and charitable undertakings.

He began his years serving on the altar in Queens and ended them serving on the altar in Philadelphia with the Confraternity of St. Stephen, a guild of Latin Mass altar servers.

Please keep Laure and her Family in your prayers. Thank you Teri. God Bless.

Richard Rulnick
Obituary

Richard Rulnick of West Springfield, MA, passed away on April 22, 2015, surrounded by his family.

Born in 1924 in Hartford, CT, he moved to Springfield, MA as a young child, and worked in his father’s store, Rulnick’s Market, in the north end of Springfield.

He attended Manhattan College in NYC, and proudly served in World War II as a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. 6th Army’s Pacific Theater of Operations. Rich was the recipient of many combat awards and medals for his notable military service. He was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign War and a member of the American Legion.

He worked for Hamilton Standard in Windsor Locks, CT, before retiring in 1987. Dad devoted his life to his family.

He raised eight children in West Springfield with his wife, Hazel (Perrault), who predeceased him in 1992. Together, they instilled strong values and humility in their children.

Missing their parents are: Lorraine Bregoli of Kennebunk, ME; Joanne Sharp of Westfield; Richard Rulnick of Springfield; Steven Rulnick of Westfield; Cathy Sharon of Somers, CT; Diane Gentile of Southampton; Donna Zades of Westfield and John Rulnick of Charlton. He also leaves his loving daughters-in-law and sons-in-law. His ten grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren brought him a constant source of joy and great pride.

Along with his late wife, Rich now joins close family friends, Andy and Tootie Chase, who also passed too soon.

Dad was deeply loved, and his strength, leadership and sense of humor will be profoundly missed. All services will be private. The family welcomes donations to the VFW on his behalf. The Toomey-O’Brien Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

PRAYERSREQUESTED: Colon, Philip J. (MC1962) prays for Heather

2015-Apr-25

Good Afternoon All,

I ask you to raise the Volume for our Niece Heather, her Husband Cameron and their two young children. We have had Heather in our prayers and she is not doing well. Heather, a Charge Nurse in Virginia, has changed her Doctor/Surgeon as she felt he was not treating her well. As a complication from her surgery, Cancer, she has developed an infection at the incision that has left her quite weak. She is in great pain and is being medicated for that. Her new Doctor has told her that she has several more tumors that have to be removed as soon as she is strong enough to be operated upon but wants to keep her out of the hospital where the possibility of further infection is possible and will bring her in as soon as the infection is cleared up and Heather is strong enough physically. Emotionally, Heather has been a powerhouse. She has kept her Faith and beautiful smile for her Family. She is a firm believer in our prayers as we brought her through a difficul time before her first child was born, then again, three years ago with her first bout with Ovarian Cancer. Heather is prepared for whatever may come and her trust in God and her Faith are strong and she needs our prayers. Please raise the volume as we pray for the best. Thank you. God Bless.

ENDNOTE: Twenty-Nine Dollar Challenge?

Jack’s Twenty-Nine Dollar Challenge
By Jack Perry
April 13, 2015

*** begin quote ***

See, we don’t need rich celebrities to “walk in our shoes” for a week. We want to keep the money we make. We want the government out of our lives and wallets. We want an end to these pointless wars and endless slaughter committed all over the planet in our name. We’ll take that $29 and buy bread and not put it towards another bomb to drop on people that did nothing to us whatsoever. Yeah, I’ve got $29 and I don’t need Hillary, Gwyneth, or Obama to tell me how to spend it. Or extract it from me in taxes and go out and kill people that never did anything to me. Or give it to bloated bureaucrats in other governments so they can waste it as our own does.

Yeah, I’ve got your Twenty-Nine Dollar Challenge right here. Jack’s Twenty-Nine Dollar Challenge: Give us our twenty-nine bucks BACK, how about that, huh?!

*** end quote ***

Gwyneth Paltrow made the news and really looks to me like a horse’s <synonym for donkey>!

At least the “Ice Bucket” challenge made some sense.

Until those <synonym for donkey> (plural) dump urine on a disabled boy!

The takers are bankrupting the makers. And, the liberals keep want to tell us how to live.

Charity should be private. The Gooferment should only be a referee or umpire preventing force or fraud.

Leave people alone to find their own way, create their own bonds, and “weave their own safety net”.

Argh!

Just because someone is one of the “beautiful people” doesn’t endow them to lecture us on “social justice” topics. Or anything else.

Argh!
