Daniel Taub is a man who has had a successful tenure in the country of the United Kingdom where he has served as an Ambassador of the State of Israel for the last four years. Many have certainly appreciated his work at the Court of St. James, and one of the prestigious Jewish Chronicle writers has stated that there has probably been no one who served that role better than him since Shlomo Argov back in the 80’s, and Argov knows how dangerous it can be since he was nearly killed in a London shooting in 1982.
Daniel Taub looks back on the past four years with a sense of success, and he feels that the UK and Israel are in better relations than they have ever been before. He recently gave an interview with some of the questions looking back on what he has done, and he gave some advice that might be used just as triumphantly in general life as in politics. First, he says to never look back. In this vein, he has continued to push forward and to reach new areas that had not been touched in the past. For example, Scotland and Wales have new Israel information centers that they had never had before, and the Manchester office was expanded so that more crevices of British society could be reached.
Daniel Taub also commented that people are what they read, and he has continued to advance his Israel knowledge and viewpoints through the consumption of many of the literature classics as well as modern books that give different outlooks. He wants people to overindulge not just in literature, but also in all that the society and culture that they live in has to offer. There is no need to hold regrets, but rather to face the obstacles as they are presented in your lifetime. Learn more: http://www.embassymagazine.com/biog/biog_countries/biog_emb37_israel.html
One of his passions is learning from other people, and this has meant not only speaking to friends and allies, but also talking to opponents and those who have differing views. While everything may not be in agreement, this can still be used as an opportunity to learn something that might be applied in your work. His final comments were to put family first and to remain multidimensional in everything that you do so that the great spectrum of life can deliver everything that it has to offer. Israel has been lucky to hold such a man as their representative, and should continue to profit from his service even after he departs from the ambassador role.
