Getting Along with Others
Growth Keeps You Extraordinary
Work is a very important part of an extraordinary person’s life.
When applying for a job, you should always be who you are, since if you convince a future employer you are someone you are not, two things will happen. You will be living a lie and eventually your true self’ will appear and disappoint your employer.
With that said, please think about how you present yourself on social media.
The Odds & Ends of Being Extraordinary
Up the Organization
by Robert Townsend
This book came out in 1970 and I first read it back in September 1976. I’ve reviewed it a couple of times since, the most recent time being last week. So much of the advice in this very easy to read book is still relevant today and I wish I had adopted more of its recommendations back in 1976
MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Here is a 1998 film about an interesting election. You tell me if this election film is or is not more outrageous than our current presidential contest. Below, is part of a brief description of this film via Wikipedia.
Turning up in California for his campaign extremely drunk, Bulworth begins speaking his mind freely at public events and in the presence of the C-SPAN film crew following his campaign. After dancing all night in an underground club and smoking marijuana, he even starts rapping in public. His frank, potentially offensive remarks make him an instant media darling and re-energize his campaign. (Source: Wikipedia)

THIS WEEK POLL – Prince
MUSIC OF THE WEEK
by Prince & The Revolution
There are just so many songs to pick from when attempting to honor Prince and I am sure most would select one other than this one, but this was the one I selected.
ART OF THE WEEK
Possible Cleopatra Statue
There are many depictions of Cleopatra, from ancient coins and Roman statues; however, many of these depictions do not look at all alike.
I must admit I tend to question this depiction of Cleopatra, that I came across while traveling in Mexico, still I thought I would present it to you for your consideration.
Prince Rogers Nelson (June 7, 1958 – April 21, 2016), known simply as Prince, was an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor.
He was a musical innovator and known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, extravagant dress and makeup, and wide vocal range. His music integrates a wide variety of styles, including funk, rock, R&B, soul, psychedelia, and pop.
He has sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists of all time. He won seven Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, and an Academy Award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004, the first year of his eligibility. [ ] (Source: Wikipedia)
