Steal the show.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; … “
William Shakespeare. As you like it, Act II, Scene VII
Steal the show means being the centre of attention, having all eyes on one, being the most popular. – Let’s admit it: who would not want to steal the show every now and then?
“Steal the show” is also a book written by Michael Port. Its promise is “a standing ovation for all the performances in your life” and it does, indeed, deliver. As a professional actor, Michael Port brings you techniques that change your views on “performance”.
Here are two straightforward tips from the book’s 50 point Cheat Sheet. Do they ring a bell?
1. Don’t say: “I am glad to be here”. Show them that you’re glad to be there instead. Your audience should see it in your actions and hear it in your words. Besides, what’s the alternaive? That you are not glad to be there?
2. Let them go early. Audiences always like to be let out a few minutes early – even if they love your performance. There are no prizes for endurance; let them leave a few minutes ahead of schedule; they will thank you for it!

You are too old!
“After all these years at your corporate job, you will never adjust to being a student again”, “no school in their right mind will accept you”, “you will be out of place (and out of money)”, “fellow students will shun you”.
You can’t afford to do this!
“You won’t be able to buy a house, start a family or move up the career ladder”.
Whatever advice you get, it’s always good to remember that it’s not about them,
it’s about YOU.
The Worst Advice You’ll Ever Hear When Making Life-Changing Decisions

Chinese New Year 2016 !
Chinese New Year is on Monday 8th February 2016. This new year is under the sign of the Fire Monkey which symbolises liberty, creativity and emancipation.
Most of Chinese companies are closed from 07.02.2016 to 13.02.2016.
This closing period is likely to increase temporary air transport prices temporarily and may induce late arrivals for European destinations.
