Of my home office it outputs enough light to comfortably illuminate the room The Felix light put out good results in the distance test at High Medium and Low settings It provides more area illumination than some of the other smaller lights It also provided enough light for map reading at the fourth Low-Low setting Having a good design and twice as many batteries makes it hard to beat for light output in a AA
flashlight All seven of these lights are good examples of modern flashlight design The Mini Magritte is by far the oldest model but still one of the best lights around for less than eight bucks The Surefire G2 is a solid example of single mode tactical lights The Icon Rogue 2 is a dual mode LED light for about what it would cost to take a date to a mom ní pop restaurant The Enova X2 is an excellent value for a very well designed light with really clean output The Nit core MT2A solves the problem of feature overload in small lights by building in the smart switch The Pelican 2370 uses extra LEDs to move us past the days of easily lost filters The Felix LD41 doubles up on batteries to create the most powerful light in the lineup The important thing is to consider what features would best suit your needs and then make.
What Goes Around Comes Around Business Articles | January 19, 2007
How often do people, especially in business, think that someone else is at fault? That life just isn?t fair? That some folks never seem to suffer negative consequences for their actions? Often we see the illusion of life instead of reality. Read this and let it sink in?perhaps your perspective will change.
A number of years ago, I received a call at work from my wife. She was very upset , excited and intense, ?Guess what I just found out!?? It really wasn?t a question. I knew she would tell me with all the fervor she could muster, without me prodding for more. ?You know Dr. Jones (not his real name) down the street?? I recalled that he was a successful physician. ?Sara just told Edna, who called me, that he sexually molested Sara?s daughter the other day. Can you believe that?? Needless to say , I was shocked. So was just about everyone else in the community. We couldn?t believe it. Why would a prominent, married, father risk everything to sexually abuse this girl? It was incomprehensible and sad for all concerned. Over the weeks that followed, I thought the scuttlebutt would die down, but it kept on going like wildfire. People were indignant , even those who were not directly affected, and I was no different. Dr. Jones was tried in the court of public opinion before the legal system could take action. And yes, there were many opinions about what should happen. Most in the community were outspoken and I was one of the most outspoken. Eventually, Dr. Jones entered into a plea agreement with the legal system and victim that would have him serving time in prison on work release. He lost his home, his medical practice , his reputation. He lost most everything he had worked for in his life. It seemed that only his family stood by him.
For the court of public opinion, though, that was not enough. The Medical Board was meeting to determine if he should lose his license. When the court of public opinion found out that he might be allowed to keep his medical license, they were outraged. Soon a letter writing campaign was orchestrated and I was asked to participate. With great pride, I composed an outstanding letter that no medical board could dismiss. I exclaimed to those who would listen , if I had committed an illegal act, I would lose my CPA license! Why should this man be any different? I was standing up for the most vulnerable in society and proud of it. Little did I know that I was setting into motion the very response in my life that I was asking for in his life. His actions were none of my business. He, nor his family, had harmed me and in fact, he was the family doctor for some family members who would miss his kind care. Yet , then, my ego and pride were fed by others for becoming an active participant in his ultimate downfall. What nobody knew, but me, was, at the time this event was occurring , I was involved in my own illegal and unethical scheme embezzling money from my clients. It never occurred to me, but focusing on the doctor?s crime was a way that I could deflect attention away from me. It was also a way that I could stay in self-denial about my own activity. I wasn?t that bad. What I didn?t know was, soon I would learn the lesson: ?What goes around comes around.?
This lesson ? similar to the lesson: You reap what you sow ? is an inevitable law of the universe. Some laws are easy to observe, like the law of gravity. Others take time to understand, see or experience. In many ways , ?What goes around comes around,? deals with ethics, ethical choices and the consequences that follow. Each ethical choice we make has an undisputed consequence ? we just may not see it immediately.
Soon after the doctor incident, I was in another state conducting a training seminar when I received a call from one of my partners. It appeared that one of my clients called requesting a withdrawal from an investment I made on his behalf. The partner wanted to help me and assist with the process of helping the client access his money. The problem was there was no investment. Of course, he didn?t know that as he called to help. Reality was I had stolen the money on the pretense of a loan. There were no funds to repay it from. I was guilty ? just like the good Doctor and while no one else knew it at that moment ? I did. The ?coming around? part of ?what goes around comes around ,? was just beginning. Now, I would get a chance to experience what I helped the Doctor experience. If only I could have rew.
