“H is for Habit, winners make a habit of doing the things losers don’t want to do.”
― Lucas Remmerswaal, The A-Z of 13 Habits

Dear Members

Habitual communicators – we could do with a few more in Canterbury!

This week’s newsletter is just a run down of the recent announcements and events happening with a few good quotes added in.


Brian and Leanne

Fourteen hundred years ago a wise Chinese philosopher provided us with what is still the best definition we know of community building.

‘Go to the people
Live among them
Learn from them
Love them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have
But of the best leaders when their task is done
The people will remark
“We have done it ourselves”’
(Lao Tze)

Recently, Joanne Hubbard, Minister at Marion Church of Christ in South Australia gave us her adaption of much of reality today.

‘Go to the people with an agenda
Find out what is wrong with them
Tell them what to do
Enable and fix them
Start with what they don’t know
Tell them what you think they should know
But of the worst leaders
When the program is finished
The people will ask
“what have they done to us?”‘
