Galba Bright, a great blogging friend, died of natural causes at his office in Montego Bay, Jamaica on March 31. His passing is a great loss to the blogging world and to a community of people who were touched by this kind, gracious, enthusiastic man.
Here's Galba's bio from his Facebook page.
I am a self-employed Emotional Intelligence writer, broadcaster,coach and facilitator. My company, Galba Bright & Associates operates Tune up your EQ,one of the top 5 Emotional Intelligence websites/blogs in the world. We deliver Learning Programmes throughout the English-speaking Caribbean and we sell knowledge products throughout the world.
I came to know Galba because he took a little diagram I produced that asked four simple questions, and mastered it like no one else has. I wrote about his use of the Four Questions here and here. I also posted on a series of articles that Galba wrote for Steve Roesler's All Things Workplace.
I've spoken with Galba's wife, Sandra about those from the blogging world who knew Galba could help. She would like ideas for how to take the great work that Galba produced and keep it available to people. In particular, ideas for Galba's blog. You leave a comment here, and she'll get your comments.
When I heard about Galba's death, I was shocked, then saddened, and the grateful to God for the gift of this man to our world. If you life has been touched by Galba, know that, as Galba would say it, "I am blessed." Try to take a tiny part of what Galba gave and make it yours to give to others. Emulated his humility and his generosity, and Galba will live on the thoughts and actions that we dedicate to him. Peace.
