Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

The time is past due; today, I must express my Very Deepest Concern. I am neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I am the son of a refugee who arrived on a boat, and who feared her whole life being “sent back.”. I am someone who, at a young age, was separated from my own family. When we moved to the suburbs, my first experience – at age 2 – was to be beaten by older kids due to my family’s religion. Yet, from a young age, I was so very fortunate to be the recipient of the kindness of strangers.

Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“If you make a woman laugh, you’re almost there. If you’re almost there, and then she laughs, that’s a different story.” ” – Roman Khanna. Laughter, especially laughing at yourself, is such a wonderful thing. It reminds each of us of the many imperfections that make us all so lovable, and that others share our imperfections, and thus, are equally so lovable, too. There’s surely a serious side to life, but that other side – the funny side – is just so darn oh-so-sweet.

Sklover’s Thought for the Work Week

Sklover Working Wisdom

“Faith sees best in the dark.” ” – Søren Kierkegaard. Sometimes, at work, sometimes at home, it sure seems “dark,” and not at all easy to have hope for the future. We may try to console ourselves with “It will all work out,” and at times it does. At other times, though, you are beyond that stage, and see no logical reason to keep going at all. It is precisely in those moments that you experience faith. Irrational? Sure, but that is the point.
