Leisure Time

Alhamdulillah, today I had accomplished my mission on reading a wonderful book written by Sir Muhammad Yunus who created the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh to offer micropayment loans to the poorest of the poor.

Education is not the filling of a bucket but the lighting of a fire ~ William Butler Yeats

Book: Banker to the Poor by Muhammad Yunus

His book ‘Banker To The Poor‘ describes the road Sir Yunus took to free 35 million from systematic slavery – a journey that led to him winning the Nobel Peace prize.

Of course, it’s an inspiring book that details the positive impact of a project on millions of lives – but it’s also a daily life business book we can learn from.

This book truly energized me because many of the community structures developed by Sir Yunus reflect the social networking of modern businesses and organizations who are leveraging the web.

There are many lessons contained within which we could apply today to respect humanity in building family strengths and modern business.

Last but not least, “Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count” 😉

May you have a great weekend! 😀

Lots of love,
Me!
