I’ve been blogging now for a year. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already. A blog is something I’ve always considered doing and wanted to do but just never did it (did you track with me there lol). I love talking about leadership which was the focus of my website for a long … More Time For A Change
But Why?… If someone were to ask you this question, what would you say?: Why do you do what you do? Scary question ins’t it? Especially when we don’t have an answer. Or our answer is just for survival and not passion. Direction in life comes from “discovering your why.” So does fulfillment. Part of … More Find The “Why”
Why read this? All of us have conflict with others. It’s an inescapable fact that we will all go through conflict. What happens when you’re attacked and feel defensive and justified to attack back? How do you know what to say and do? What’s appropriate? In this post I will share some insight I’ve gained … More Attack Formation
We haven’t done this blog series in a while so I thought it was a good time to revisit. This series is called, “You Might Be A…” where we take a Type on the Enneagram and talk through what it’s like to be that Type. We mix in some humor (obviously), along with some paths … More “You Might Be A Three If…”

Recently, during a sermon the subject of busyness came up which I see as a leading cause of why people struggle in faith and life.

So it happened… You have put all this work into an idea you thought was great. You even prepared and practiced how to share the idea with your supervisor, spouse, friends, investors, etc. You gear up for the big day, begin to share and maybe don’t even get to finish before a big “NOPE” is … More Rejected Idea, Now What?
When I say the word, “social” you probably picture something like the photo above. Out to wine and dine with some friends and family. But, what if I were to add the word, “awareness.” Those words paired together spell out a very important ingredient for success. Social Awareness increases our success in life, leadership, faith, … More A Key to Success: Awareness.
Ending of the Contemplative Practices You may remember reading the other 2 blog posts on contemplative practices and how they can help speak life into each Enneagram type. If you don’t remember, here they are: Silence Read it here Stillness Read it here Solitude (today’s post) We have covered silence and stillness, which are some … More Solitude: not all bad!
Silence is something we don’t come by on a regular basis in 2019. Even right now I have my AirPods in my ears listening to music as I write this. Noise is everywhere. Noise comes in many different forms too: music, tv, social media, crowds, talking, etc. So many forms noise that it’s hard to … More Shhhh! Embracing Silence.
A couple weeks ago, we wrote about 3 incredible practices that can allow each type on the Enneagram to lean more into their True Self. Each one is beneficial for every person but there are specific Types that resonate more with each one. Here’s the quick breakdown. Silence (Types 5,6,7) Solitude (Types 2,3,4) Stillness (Types … More STOP, and be still!
