I’ve been told I’m an ambitious person. I can’t really remember too many times someone had to “hurry me along” to get me to do something or work hard. But I can recall several occasions where people have had to “slow me down.” New ideas give me life. Creativity, thinking outside the box, moving along … More Stay Ambitious
Does your legacy really matter? Your gut instinct answer is no doubt = yes. Most people understand that our legacy matters deeply and we want to leave something meaningful behind. Whether it’s in life, our old job, in our children’s life before they leave the house, etc. Lately I’ve been thinking about my legacy. Today … More Does Legacy Matter?
Recently I had a conversation with a guy in our church who decided to leave. BUT, he’s leaving for reasons in which I’m so glad he’s leaving. Typically when you begin a conversation with, “My wife and I are leaving your church” it’s not always followed by positive words or encouragement. But this was very … More Sending is Healthy
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…”
I preach often at the current church in which I serve. I love preaching and public speaking. 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. A great mentor of mine has encouraged me to master the life of … More Mastering “Un-Busy”
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.
I love that picture as the heading photo for this particular post. The thing I love most about it is the color. I believe when each of us finds our “why” and begins the journey of living out that purpose that it paints a beautiful, chaotic, messy yet amazing picture in our world. When life … More Life On Purpose
