A child’s truth, a child’s solution! By Penny L Howe

Humble thanks from Cimplicityrockss to writer Penny L Howe for sharing this
“Simple Yet Splendid” lesson with us

I also thank my sweet friends Mr.Raj & Mr.Charan for allowing me to design the banner using their kids pictures 🙂

The pure innocence of a child is much more wise than we fail to recognize. Children will see a truth immediately and a solution to a problem.

When Jordan was 8 years old she saw her first commercial on TV that talked about homeless children in other countries. It included a close-up view of children just like her!

Jumping up out of her chair (true story) Jordan turned to her parents and said, “Let’s go get them, they need a place to stay, we have room!”

Her parents then spend quite a little bit of time explaining that many people in many countries on this planet were and are homeless. Jordan kept shaking her head and asking “why”. To her, in her mind there should be no “that’s just the way it is!” “There’s nothing we can do about it” and so on. In her mind there was only one truth. No one anywhere on this planet should go hungry and homeless.

To this 8 year old little girl the solution was obvious and simple. Let’s go get them and bring them home, we have room!

The ‘thinking positive’ learning lesson I received that day was that if a child can see the truth in the world better than an adult then we (I) need to try much harder to see the view from their eyes and do something about it!

A quick postscript here. Jordan still cares passionately about those less fortunate and works with her church youth group. Apart from those things she does locally, she has made several trips to Mexico to help build homes for the homeless.

SHE did not forget!

Cimplicityrockss 4 – “HR” by an “HR”

Friends it is common for many professionals especially in HR departments to refer candidates for a job and it becomes more easy for the candidates when they actually get the same person who referred them in the selection panel as well

Just imagine yourself in the place of an Interviewer for a particular job and you land up in meeting your best friend in the place of candidate and to make your position even more complicated, your friend is not suitable for the role …what would you do ???


Am sure most of us would answer that we would select the candidate based on their performance only…but trust me though this sounds simple to us… in reality it is very likely that majority of us try to be more generous in our selection process when it comes to known people…it is a natural human tendency which I agree but keeping in mind the larger community of suitable & more qualified candidates your decision of selecting your friend becomes biased…..

Am surely not here to discuss good practices of human resource professionals but just want to tell you about this person who in HR profession set his own rule and I believe that his simple attitude of honesty can be a great lesson to many of us…

I know this person for quite a longggggggg time now….he is an HR professional (Human resource professional). He Voluntarily backs out from interviewing any candidate whom he refers for any job and not just the referred candidates but also when he happens to meet any known people in interviews then he honestly discloses it and gives the role of interviewing to third person to ensure at most quality and integrity in recruiting……Why would a company need stringent policies when all its employees inculcate such great policies in their own life………?

Sometimes we don’t realize the greatness in certain simple things we do isn’t it? Am sure even this person would not have realized that his simple attitude would make such a good impression and meaning to other professionals…if he is reading this, then I would say “I have recruited you in my Blog with great respect  🙂”.

 “HR” by an “HR”
(“Honesty Recommended” by an “ Human Resource” professional)

I learnt honesty from his simple attitude did you?
