Are you willing to take some risks?
I don’t mean eating Chinese instead of Mexican tonight.
I mean taking a significant risk…that could result in significant reward.
I’m just getting ready to go to the country of Georgia. I’m fired up about engaging with people across cultures (as I always am when I go on such a trip …
Joel Boggess wrote on his 4 Points Coaching blog:
This will be a fun day; the last one in your 7 Day Stamina Challenge.
Be proud of yourself. Pat yourself on the back. Have a party.
You have stepped out of the box and held yourself accountable for a full week; something everyone knows intuitively they should do, but somehow don’t.

How many of these children will end up doing work they…Continue

Do you follow the status quo? Do you do what has always been done. If you do, you are in good company, however, that is not where you want to be if you want to be a success in business and in life. Below is a picture of the normal, traditional drumstick surrounded by several of our drumsticks at Custom Stix™. To say the middle stick is boring would be an understatement. This is what most other companies are…Continue
Why am I on this planet? What am I supposed to be doing? These questions plague philosophers ‘n wise men ‘n doctors… and we common folk aren’t exempt either. I’ve wrestled through this for a long time, finally landing on this conclusion:
My passions are the closest I’ll probably get to having God tell me what to do with my life.…Continue

The thumbtack was originally discovered by Gulliver during his stay in Lilliput during August of 1706. A Lilliputian blacksmith, who fancied himself as an inventor and entrepreneur; as blacksmiths tend to do; had decided to create an umbrella that could withstand the bombardment of the spring hail storms. You can image, being so small, that Lilliputians dreaded going outside…Continue

If you have taken part in this challenge, no doubt you have been changed. You may have felt at odds with what you needed to accomplish for a particular day. You may have felt like you were on a roller coaster, thinking that while you thought it this looked fun and exciting, once you were into it, there were times you were uncomfortable or just plain scared.
I know I have experienced…Continue

Summer is quickly coming to a close. In some strange way I am actually glad. Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons. I think it has something to do with a bountiful harvest and seeing the fruits of hard labor. Our summer was filled with missions trips, 3 county fairs, a two week task…Continue

It’s one of the fun things we do over the weekend. Load up the laptops, (or not) and head out to one of our favorite local hangouts, a real coffee shop; complete with a coffee roaster in the center of the store, a widely diverse mixture of inexpensive wall art, and an open mic for American Idol hopefuls.
We took a seat in the back, as is our preference, and…

If you had a free hour… or even a free day, what would you do with it? You may imagine that you’d read all the books and magazines that have been collecting dust in your home. Or maybe you’d rent the entire season of your favorite show from Netflix and watch nine episodes in a row. Or maybe…Continue

By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way to the country of Georgia.
Why the globetrotting you ask??
It’s written on my DNA. I can’t help it.
