Our Deepest Fear

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

World Data Bank - Private Sector

Here's another attempt at data visualization using Tableau.

This is looking at the time required for businesses in the private sector (using data from World Bank). Specifically, I'm only looking at the 31 countries which comprise the High Income (OECD) group.

The Fab Five Viz

Here's my visualization comparing five companies against each other:

1. Apple (AAPL)
2. Google (GOOG)
3. Microsoft (MSFT)
4. Oracle (ORCL)
5. SAP (SAP)

Which company looks best to you? What's the most important measure?

* Most of the numbers are in millions and span from 2001 - 2010.
* Data is taken from MSN Money Financials 10-YR SUMMARY.

What's Your Story?

All of us have a story to tell. The question isn't whether or not we have a story ... the question is do we have a story that is worth telling? Life can often seem mundane and meaningless, but we were meant for so much more.

We were meant to be a part of a grand Epic.

This book really challenged me to think about the bigger Story. I definitely recommend it! Check it out ... you won't be disappointed ... in fact, you'll probably be inspired to live a better story.

I know I was ... and still am striving to live a story that is worth telling.
