  4. Emeasoba George:

    Most times, you do feel or think that God is hard/harsh on you. But, that's a mistaken feeling and misconception. Because, God has never been hard or harsh on you or anyone else. Yes! the truth of the matter is this, God loves you too much or earnestly. Now, that's why he left you the way you are presently. Take this from me, although you may be feeling uncomfortable currently. Never mind, for you are nothing but a divine project in God's hands. I mean, you are a work in progress in God's hands. Therefore, just relax and never complain. For, sooner or later, he (God) will be through or done with you. And until he's through or done with you. That's just the moment you will surely realize that you are really a divine project or work in progress in his (God's) hands. Oh! yes, I strongly do believe that I'm a work in progress in God's hands. You too may or may not believe that anyway.

  5. Dara Khosrowshahi:

    Sometimes you should keep it to yourself or keep it to dinner conversation, but these public-private borders, they're blurring. I think it's a relatively uncomfortable time for CEOs and we gotta figure out how to change. I'm figuring it out as we go.
