Manifesto

Purpose

Curving rail tracks

Has humanity lost its way in its pursuit of everything that is “me, me and me”. Have we lost track of what’s most important in life? © omygdala.com

To crowdsource empathy!*

*It seems that we have lost our ability to feel someone else’s pain. Many of us have become too selfish, self-centered, materialistic, and vacuous. That’s why people applaud when a dying dad and his sick son are booted off a plane.

Empathy, it seems, is dead! Long live empathy!

However, I would like to revive or resuscitate or resurrect empathy, because it is through empathy that humanity can move towards a better and safer world. I hope you all can help me with this noble endeavour.

Mission

Forked rail tracks

Without a fork, there is no changing direction. © omygdala.com

  • To make some sense as to why horrible managers and fake leaders are ensconced at every level of almost every organization.
  • To help prepare new hires for the grueling corporate life by sharing lessons learned from my days in the corporate world.
  • To identify true leaders, be it at home or at work, who remain unrecognized because they refrain from hogging the limelight.
  • To recognize people who have made a difference in our lives.
  • To shed light into bad managerial practices that plague many organizations.
  • To provide a platform to people to anonymously share stories about experiences at their workplace.
  • To remind everyone that we all are entitled to a few unalienable rights granted by our “Creator”—life, liberty and pursuit of happiness—all of which are in danger of being eroded away by the overreaching arm of governments.
  • To criticarously (critically + humorously) examine everything that is messed up with the modern life. Nothing’s off limit.

Vision

Straight road

Look closely, your view changes, perspective transforms and a vision emerges. © omygdala.com

To pay it forward and to help effect a change—however small may it be—by being the change you want to see in this world.*
