My Year End Message: “”Don’t Duck””

Dear Peter,

The man so many thought would become the first gentleman of the United States, former President Bill Clinton, is fond of reminding us to focus on trendlines, not headlines. It’s sound advice, even if especially hard to follow these days. The analysis goes like this: headlines highlight terrorism, political conflict, every-man-for-himself corruption in business and government, and vacuous celebrity, consumerism and stereotypes. But look at the trendlines and you’ll see people getting healthier, societies turning freer and more inclusive, more kids going to school, and serious people — including many reading this now — rolling-up their sleeves to design social enterprises, advocacy campaigns and development initiatives that are improving lives.

It’s worth noting that we’re now closer to gender parity in education than at any time in modern history. Countries including Botswana, Nicaragua and Costa Rica have fully closed their enrollment gender gaps, and Nepal, Rwanda and Zimbabwe are 90 percent of the way there. This year alone, Chad, Mozambique and Zambia launched plans to end child marriage, and Tanzania and Gambia outlawed the practice. While some countries have slid backwards politically, Myanmar elected its first civilian leader in five decades in a peaceful transfer of power. And world hunger is at its lowest point in 25 years.

Embedded in that analysis is a choice, a personal choice we must all make. It’s something I’ll be thinking about over this holiday break (Devex closes its offices every year between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) and I’ll come back to you with a question on this point in a moment..more.

My Messaġġ Sena Tmiem: “”Ma papra””

Għażiż Peter,

Il-bniedem hekk ħsibt ħafna minnhom ma ssir l-ewwel gentleman ta ‘l-Istati Uniti, ex President Bill Clinton, hija fond ta’ fakkruna li tiffoka fuq trendlines, mhux aħbarijiet. Huwa pariri tajba, anki jekk b’mod speċjali diffiċli biex isegwu dawn il-jiem. L-analiżi tmur bħal dan: aħbarijiet terroriżmu jenfasizzaw, kunflitt politiku, kull-bniedemall-nnifsu korruzzjoni fin-negozju u l-gvern, u ċelebrità vacuous, consumerism u isterjotipi. Iżda tħares lejn il-trendlines u tkun taf tara nies jkollna b’saħħithom, soċjetajiet tidwir aktar ħielsa u aktar inklussiva, aktar gidjien jmorru l-iskola, u nies serji — inkluż ħafna li taqra dan issa — rolling up kmiem tagħhom biex jiddisinjaw intrapriżi soċjali, kampanji ta ‘promozzjoni u inizjattivi ta ‘żvilupp li huma ittejjeb il-ħajja.

Huwa ta ‘min jinnota li aħna qed issa eqreb lejn ugwaljanza bejn is-sessi fl-edukazzjoni milli fi kwalunkwe ħin fl-istorja moderna. Pajjiżi inklużi Botswana, in-Nikaragwa u l-Kosta Rika għalqu kompletament lakuni tagħhom reġistrazzjoni bejn is-sessi, u n-Nepal, ir-Rwanda u ż-Żimbabwe huma 90 fil-mija tal-mod hemmhekk. Din is-sena biss, iċ-Ċad, il-Możambik u ż-Żambja mnedija pjanijiet biex tintemm żwieġ tat-tfal, u t-Tanżanija u Gambja illegali l-prattika. Filwaqt li xi pajjiżi jiżżerżaq lura politikament, Mjanmar elett mexxej ċivili tagħha ewwel fl ħamsin sena fi trasferiment paċifiku tal-enerġija. U l-ġuħ dinji hija aktar punt baxx tagħha fl-25 sena.

Inkorporati fl din l-analiżi hija għażla, għażla personali aħna kollha jridu jagħmlu. Hija xi ħaġa I ser tkun ħsieb dwar matul dan il-brejk tal-vaganzi (Devex jagħlaq l-uffiċċji tagħha kull sena bejn Jum il-Milied u Jum l-Ewwel tas-Sena) u jien ser terga ‘lura lilek bil-mistoqsija dwar dan il-punt fil-moment..more.

My Jaareind Boodskap: “”Moenie Duck””

Liewe Peter,

Die man so baie gedink sou word die eerste man van die Verenigde State van Amerika, die voormalige president Bill Clinton, is lief vir herinner ons om te fokus op trendlines, nie nuus. Dit is goeie raad, selfs al is veral moeilik om deesdae te volg. Die ontleding gaan soos volg: nuus hoogtepunt terrorisme, politieke konflik, elke mens-vir-homself korrupsie in besigheid en die regering, en nutteloos celebrity, verbruikerswese en stereotipes. Maar kyk na die trendlines en jy sal sien mense wat gesonder, samelewings draai vryer en meer inklusiewe, meer kinders gaan skool, en ernstige mense — insluitend baie lees dit nou — rollende-up hul moue op sosiale ondernemings, bewusmakingsveldtogte ontwerp en ontwikkelingsinisiatiewe wat die verbetering van lewens.

Dit is opmerklik dat ons nou nader aan pariteit in die onderwys as te eniger tyd in die moderne geskiedenis. Lande, waaronder Botswana, Nicaragua en Costa Rica het ten volle gesluit hulle inskrywings geslag gapings, en Nepal, Rwanda en Zimbabwe is 90 persent van die pad daarheen. Hierdie jaar alleen, Chad, Mosambiek en Zambië begin planne om die huwelik kind eindig, en Tanzanië en Gambië verbied die praktyk. Terwyl sommige lande agteruit polities het gegly, Myanmar verkies sy eerste burgerlike leier in vyf dekades in ‘n vreedsame oordrag van mag. En wêreld honger is op sy laagste punt in 25 jaar.

Ingebed in die analise is ‘n keuse, ‘n persoonlike keuse moet ons almal te maak. Dit is iets wat ek sal dink oor meer as hierdie vakansie breek (Devex sluit sy kantore jaarliks ​​tussen Kersdag en Nuwejaarsdag) en ek sal terug kom na jou toe met ‘n vraag oor hierdie punt in ‘n moment..more.

My Message Viti End: “”Mos Duck””

Dear Peter,

Njeriu kaq shumë mendim do të bëhet zotëri i parë i Shteteve të Bashkuara, ish-presidenti Bill Klinton, është dashur të na kujtuar të përqëndrohet në trendlines, jo titujt. Kjo është këshilla të shëndoshë, edhe në qoftë se veçanërisht e vështirë për të ndjekur këto ditë. Analiza shkon si kjo: Titujt terrorizmit pah, konflikti politik, çdo njeri-për-vete korrupsionin në biznes dhe qeveri, dhe i famshëm pakuptim, konsumizmit dhe stereotipet. Por shikoni në trendlines dhe ju do të shihni njerëz duke u shëndetshme, shoqëritë e kthyer më të lirë dhe më përfshirëse, më shumë fëmijë shkojnë në shkollë, dhe njerëzit serioze — duke përfshirë shumë e lexuar këtë tani — kodrina-up sleeves e tyre për të hartuar ndërmarrjet shoqërore, fushata advokimi dhe iniciativat e zhvillimit që janë përmirësimi i jetës.
