The Starfish Thrower

The Starfish Thrower

Hello Readers,

As a trainer and a coach , I believe strongly to the power of story telling..

If we  look into the shiny light  after a few seconds our vision will be blurry. When we try to find solution to our own issues, we’ll struggle.. hence our vision would be blurred by the mere fact of being too much involved.

Stories distance us from our current context and while mentally traveling elsewhere – we discover a learning point that we’ll use back in our current reality.

We have handpicked a great story for your written by Margaret Parkin. It is called the Star Thrower!

A man was walking along the beach when he noticed a young boy apparently picking something off the ground and throwing it out into the sea. As the man got closer to the boy he saw that the objects were starfish. And the boy was surrounded by them. For miles and miles along the shore, there seemed to be millions of them.

‘Why in the world are you throwing starfish into the water?’ he asked the boy he approached.

‘If these starfish are on the beach tomorrow morning when the tide goes out they will die.’ replied the boy, continuing with his work.
‘But that’s ridiculous!’ cried the man. ‘Look around you. There are thousands of miles of beach and millions of starfish. How can you believe that what you’re doing could possibly make a difference?’

The young boy picked up another starfish, paused thoughtfully, and remarked as he tossed it out into the waves. ‘It makes a difference to this one’

The moral of the story…

What is never attempted will never be accomplished, even the smallest of efforts defeats indifference (apathy).

I am leaving you with this simple questions to think about this weekend no matter where you are in the world.

Who or what are the “starfish” that you want to save?

What are you waiting for?

    You can go to any webmaster forum (Digitalpoint is a good one) and you can look for a proxy discussion thread.
    You could possibly wide open proxy web sites from the workstation visitor to start an immediate option to the now-recognized risk – the lack of term life coverage.
    Obtaining a paid proxy list could make every online experience secure, safe, and definitely
