Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.
Is there a simple strategy for solving almost any problem? Absolutely! Most people, however, never get to the point of solving problems. They choose to ignore, avoid, or run away from their problems.…

We often make decisions based on fear. When faced with a choice between comfort and uneasiness, we tend to side with comfort. Making that decision isn't necessarily correct or safe; it just appears to be less troublesome to our emotions. A child learns this at a young age and is able to manipulate a parent into seeing the desired outcome.

Recently, my wife, Claudia, and I had a decision to make. It wasn’t super important, but important enough. We dragged our feet and took far too long to make our decision. We were wishy-washy and indecisive.
The good news is, we DID make a decision.
The bad news is, now we’re NOT SURE if we like it.
Have you ever experienced this? You struggle and struggle to make a decision and then you have second thoughts?
I know I have.…

For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10).
If you're like me, you spend a lot of time analyzing your present situation in trying to confirm that you and God are on the same page. We want… Continue

The garden was a perfect place. The water was pure. The sky was blue. The bugs were friendly. There was no overcrowding, unemployment, or political controversy. It was perfect.
In the middle of the garden was one limitation, one forbidden element. It was there because the opportunity to disobey makes obedience meaningful. Without that limitation, existence in the garden would… Continue

Yesterday we talked about how our preconceived notions can cloud our vision. Today, we'll take a look at the power of our personal choices.
We all like to make choices and there's nothing wrong with that. God gave us a free will and often allows us to choose from among several options. Some choices are insignificant; others, however, have the potential to affect our lives for… Continue

We often make the mistake of viewing today's decisions as relevant only to today. Wisdom, however, tells us that all of life is connected. Some of today's experiences are directly connected to decisions made days, months, or years ago. We change our futures by making better choices today.

Attitude isn’t everything, or is it? Our attitudes affect how we view life and how we deal with challenges. Attitudes affect our perception of today and our optimism about tomorrow. With the right attitude, we can handle bad news and get through tough days. Bad attitudes seem to have the opposite effect. Bad attitudes allow us to view great things as adequate, minor challenges as… Continue

Are we intentional
What’s it like to live an intentional life? How many decisions do you make based upon nothing? Do you even have a process for the things that you do or do you just shoot into the wind and hope for a safe landing? Why is it so easy to live an improvisational life where almost all that you do is based upon what you come up with on the…

An open letter to the lady I encountered twice within five minutes.
You're right; this is your world and the rest of us are just living in it! I was driving through a business area and you were exiting the parking lot of a popular restaurant. So far, so good. However, it would have been nice if you would have stopped to see if any traffic was coming before entering the road. Something told me… Continue

Traffic officers in Oregon say Jose Romero-Valenzuela was in such a hurry to make a court date that he racked up $2,000 worth of speeding tickets in an hour.
The man was traveling west on Interstate 84 and got pulled over three times – first at 105 mph, then at 98 mph and finally at 92 mph. Police say the last ticket appeared to have an effect. Down the road a bit, a trooper set up watch and clocked him at the limit, 65… Continue

Researchers tell us that the average woman uses about 20,000 words per day; the average man uses about 7,000 per day. Now, don't expect me to explain the difference between these two numbers! That is outside the scope of this article and the wisdom I've developed over the past 35 years of marriage!
It is obvious that we all use a lot of words. So, which word is the most… Continue

One of my favorite college courses to teach is Problem Solving and Effective Thinking. In this course, I introduce the concept of "decision debt." This is the cumulative effect of making bad decisions. Dave Ramsey has encouraged us to get out of financial debt by making better decisions with our money. My goal is to help eliminate decision debt by teaching people to make… Continue

I was thinking about teenagers the other day and how I really want to take my hand, put it on their heads and transfer "all" my wisdom so they avoid making the same mistakes I did.
