A bad moment, a bad day, a bad week… it’s ok. It doesn’t define you. I almost thought about ending the post there. The reality is, that sums up the lesson you need to learn. But I suspect it wouldn’t be as impactful. If you have been super encouraged by the first sentence, great. IfContinue reading “Definition-You: not all the bad things you think.”

How many times will you do it wrong?
I have a love-hate relationship with garage door openers. Specifically the kind that Ford builds into their vehicles. If you own a Ford, you know what I’m talking about. It’s the three buttons that are virtually impossible to program. If you are one of those mavericks that never has problems getting these things to work,Continue reading “How many times will you do it wrong?”
Be kind, rewind!
It’s been a bit since I have let anything post to the blog. There’s a reason for it. For any of you born after 2000, I’m going to use some terms related to a Video Cassette Recorder. That’s a device that plays these things called cassette tapes that were the predecessors to DVD, which proceededContinue reading “Be kind, rewind!”
This isn’t a post about a specific generation. I know that the word entitlement is often associated with millennials. I know first hand why it is. In many cases, there’s a tinge of unfortunate accuracy to the connotation and association. But, I am not talking about blanket judgment of a generation. I’m talking about anyoneContinue reading “Entitlement Syndrome”
What have you got to lose?
Sometimes inaction leads to worse things than doing what you know is right. Sometimes doing the right thing feels like it would put you in grave danger. I would be remiss if I didn’t say this towards the front of this post. There IS a scriptural directive for all of us that profess faith inContinue reading “What have you got to lose?”
Lessons from Bad Leaders
Even bad leaders can teach you something. I could stop there, but I don’t know if it would sink in. It’s very easy to think that you don’t have to listen to someone if you are rooted in your thought that someone is a bad leader. Unfortunately, that’s just not true. From a biblical perspective,Continue reading “Lessons from Bad Leaders”
Winning and Losing
Let’s start off with something quick; I’m a nerd. This post is centered around a story from a TV show. Star Trek. Are you done rolling your eyes yet? I hope so or you may miss a really good point. If I had a better example to share, I would. But some of my examplesContinue reading “Winning and Losing”
Oh boy, I wish mulligans in life were real. They aren’t, unfortunately. It would sure be nice if that mistake didn’t count. If I could just pretend like it didn’t happen. But I can’t. Before, I jump in, let’s talk about that word for a second. Mulligan. It’s a golfing term for getting a do-over.Continue reading “Mulligan”
Ok, I have to be honest. I have been thinking about this one for a while. I have also been struggling with just writing what I want. I’m afraid it may come off self-serving. But, the reality is, many people need to hear it for themselves. And my approach is very personal. So, yeah, I’veContinue reading “Margin Matters”
You are not all that and a bag of chips
Oh, I know the title of this one really shows my age. That was a cool saying once upon a time. Ok, maybe not cool, but it got said a lot. This post isn’t going to be a knock the wind out of your sails kind of post though as the title would imply. No,Continue reading “You are not all that and a bag of chips”
