We asked Ali Matar, Head of LinkedIn MENA and EMEA Emerging Markets:
When faced with two equally qualified job candidates, how do you determine whom to hire?
I think it is nearly impossible to have two people that are an exact perfect match for the same job. Each candidate will have their strengths and weaknesses. But if they’re close, I would refer to what the job really requires and evaluate the timeframe: if we need immediate impact from day one, I would go for the candidate with the proven track record. If the job can withstand gradual progress, I would hire on the merit of potential.
THE ONE-THING PRINCIPLE
"For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil, there is one striking at the root." Henry David Thoreau "...wisdom is profitable to direct." Ecclesiastes 10:10
It is not the multitudinous activities of your work that will strike the cord of achievement; it is a specific dedication to the core activity that moves the needle in your favour. .
What is the one thing that you must do today to make the rest of the week, month or year end better? If you are an actor, have you practised to the point where you are no longer acting a role, you have become the role? If you are a executive, supervisor or manager, have you learnt to seek first to understand before you are understood? .
While there may be a thousand and one thing you are doing now that is not adding up to anything, there is one thing you can do today that will change everything. Discover it. .
And while you're at it, you can at least apply this one principle right way, given to us by Stephen Covey, " Seek first to understand, then to be understood". That is the wisdom you need today... everyday! .

I work with you to take out the guesswork in your life by making your results predictable! .
No one has ever stopped a person from scoring an own goal. But it shocks everyone in the end.
If they’re trying to stop you.
If they’re fighting against you.
If they’re whispering and hating it.
Know that you’re tracking well.
Note that you’re attacking and you’re about to score a lifetime goal.
They hate success, but they like it when you’re digging your own grave.
They’ll laugh and look down on you for going to church (building up your spiritual life), they’ll make fun of you for always being indoors studying (self-care and building your character), opening a small business in the streets (chasing your dreams), but they’ll SUPPORT you when you want to buy a bottle of booze and to add side chick/nigga (to destroy your career). The thing is they’ll help you start smoking, drinking and cheating, but once you’re stuck —they’ll turn it against you and gossip about you. The moment you become addicted to what they’ve been feeding you, they put you in the ditch. * Addicted to smoking no one buys for you. * Addicted to alcohol they’ll ask “when is your turn to buy?” and then sidestep you. * the moment you get caught with your side chick/nigga they’re nowhere to be found. They don’t want to be involved and they don’t want to look bad to your partner.
They won’t stop you from overspending — they want to see you go down, not up. Remember that.
So you might as well do the right thing. Stop pleasing “frenemies”. Stop doing things that will bring regrets and shame in your life. Do things that will make you proud someday. Give up things that are not adding value to your life.

There’s something to be said about being different.
Innovation depends on it.
Excellence thrives on it.
Some of the greatest leaders of our time have inspired us to be different. Do different. Think different.
Some of the most successful businesses have created a foundation of being different in order to develop the empires that now top the markets.
So as all of us are born different - embrace your individuality and let it shine.
The secret to living, is giving. This is who WE are. We are born to love and to give. Hate, is learned behavior.
This brought so much joy to my heart. Give somebody a hug, ask them how they are doing, buy gas for somebody, pay for a strangers lunch...do something to let ppl know that they are seen and noticed
Leave Some ❤️❤️ If You love, love #pastoroffitness#givingwithgrace#ourfuture
#volgjehart ‘Religions have always stressed that compassion is not only central to religious life, it is the key to enlightenment and it’s the true test of spirituality. But there have always have been those who'd rather put easier goals, like doctrine conformity, in place.’ Karen Armstrong
Er is de laatste jaren veel groei in Spiritualiteit. Er hangt vaak een rare zweem omheen. Voor mij is Spiritualiteit totale Bewustwording. Bewustwording van wat er gebeurt, waarom het gebeurt, wat mijn eigen rol en perceptie is enz. Dit is een innerlijke reis die, als je het consequent toepast, verlichting kan brengen. Je ervaart totale vrijheid zonder ergens aan gehecht te zijn. Ook niet aan de vrijheid.
Bij spiritualiteit horen ook de woorden Liefde en Licht. Je moet alles in Liefde en Licht zien. En hier komt voor velen de Spirituele Bypass om de hoek kijken.
Men denkt door alles zogenaamd door Liefde en Licht te zien, dat er geen verstoringen meer mogen zijn. Dat je geen emoties mag hebben zoals frustratie of boosheid. Deze schijn acceptatie maakt meer stuk dan men denkt.
Men houdt nog steeds controle i.p.v. echt loslaten.
Ze vermijden of tolereren iets zonder echt te accepteren.
Ze gaan altijd ergens naartoe zonder er te zijn.
Ze willen het begrijpen, beetpakken zonder gewoon oprecht dankbaar te zijn.
Het blijft nog steeds een beschermings-mechanisme. Onder het excuus van Liefde en Licht kijkt men niet naar de innerlijke reis, die soms pijnlijk kan zijn. Daar zit De bewustwording die wel helpt. Voor echte Spiritualiteit, bestaat geen bypass or shortcut!

I shared this elsewhere but had a positive response and thought it might inspire others to #grombre If you’re even considering letting your natural silver come through I highly recommend it! It’s easier, probably healthier for my hair and body and looks better. One person said it ages me...here’s to owning my age. I have people ask me who does my color. Erin Chylewski has helped me blend it to let it grow out as painlessly as possible.

Great mantra for a Monday!
Too many of us doubt our abilities if the amount of posts about impostor syndrome are any indicator.
