Me thinks that you spend too much time in past.
You cannot change history, merely point to flaws
in others interpretation of history.
How about posts on what can be done? What would
a plan of action to create jobs in Ukraine?
No a comment that you are entrepreneur is not the
same as what can be done to achieve economic
development in terms of jobs for Ukraine.
Leadership is not digging up old bones rather leading
others to economic achievement and freedom.
Consider some post on what can be done to find jobs
for Ukrainians with a specific plan of work and schedule.

The Art of Exceeding Expectations by gary ryan blair
The distance between those who achieve their goals
consistently and those who spend their lives and
careers merely following has everything to do with
one’s ability to go the extra mile.
Search wherever you will for a single sound argument
against the principle of going the extra mile, and you
will not find it, nor will you find a single instance of
enduring success which was not attained in part by
From parenting children to managing a staff, the
true leaders in any field are willing to go farther
than anyone else…the extra mile.
YOUR ability to elicit behavior that goes above and
beyond the call of duty is a key asset and competitive
weapon, one that is extremely difficult for competitors
to imitate and virtually impossible to ignore.
In today’s competitive environment, it’s simply
not enough to just show up and do your work.
Simply stated, superior performance is not, never
has been, nor will it ever be the by-product or
YOU must embrace the fact that in order for you
to remain competitive, then it’s in your best interest
to learn what it takes to go the extra mile and
exceed expectations at all times.
Take just a moment and reflect on the people
you work and come in contact with on a daily basis.
MOST of those people are not hard acts to follow…
and that’s exactly why a commitment to excellence
is the ultimate competitive advantage.
The great part about excellence is that it is
achieved via QUALITATIVE, not quantitative shifts in
What that means is a focus on developing assets
such as the quality of your thoughts, expertise, image,
leadership, and reputation are priority #1.
Why? It’s actually very simple as an improvement
on your qualitative assets, guarantees an improvement
in your quantitative results.
Street Sweeper Being part of a qualitatively different
world or environment where excellence is expected and
practiced is the key to achieving excellence.
The following quote from Martin Luther King beautifully
demonstrates the meaning of a qualitative shift and
how it pertains to personal excellence.
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should
sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven
composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should
sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and
earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.”
The moral of this message is simple: Focus on the
quality of your work, and demonstrate excellence in
every way, shape and form.
