Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between

Toronto – July 8, 2013
It’s truly amazing and a little scary to watch what has been happening in Egypt over the past two weeks. After only one year in office, the democratically elected leader has been removed by the army. Right or wrong, this is a dramatic event that happened. There are protests, violence, uncertainty, and all that goes along with a country trying to find its way.
 
We shouldn’t consider this a failure of democracy. It takes time to get it right so hopefully Egypt will try again once things have settled down. The world needs to keep a close eye on this because not only is Egypt very influential in the Arab world, but it also controls the movement of goods through the Suez Canal.
 
We need to remember that democracy takes time and it is difficult to unlearn hundreds of years of bad habits. Egypt needs support right now to ensure that things don’t get too far out of hand, but it needs to figure out how to deal with these issues on its own. Only then can it truly become a democratic country built on giving people a voice to make decisions that shape the direction of the country.

Toronto – July 1, 2013
Happy Canada Day to those Canadians celebrating Canada’s birthday today. And for those in the U.S., happy early fourth of July.
 
We have a lot to be thankful for in Canada, despite the fact that we complain a lot. The economy is going well, we have a strong healthcare system, we have great universities to educate our children and we have a stable political system.
 
Many take the contrary viewpoint to the statements I just made. That the economy is stumbling. That is the healthcare system is too expensive and getting worse. That our education system no longer meets the needs of our children. That our political system is a mess.
 
But many of those same people don’t do anything about it but complain. When asked for solutions, they don’t have any better ones. When asked to pay more taxes, they refuse. When asked to get involved, they decline.
 
Let’s spend this Canada Day enjoying what we do have in this great country, which is a place where we are all free to voice our opinions, to contribute to make society better, and to live in a place where our children can truly grow up to be whatever it is they want to be.
 
Let’s give Canada a break for at least one day, and instead of focusing on what’s missing, let’s focus on what we have and be thankful for it. Everyone deserves a free pass on his or her birthday.
 
Happy Canada Day!
