As we process new information each day, we can decide what to do with situations that come our way. We react or respond according to how our past experiences shaped us. This is normally how we adapt to… Continue

It’s only natural you want to stay with a commitment you agreed to.
But over time, enthusiasm can wane. Maybe you’re just going though the motions.
There have been times in my life when I held onto a commitment, but wasn’t fully committed. I felt a sense of responsibility. Duty.… Continue

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.…

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…

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.

Personality. An intriguing phenomenon—how it rules the individual and affects everyone it touches.
Recently I was reacquainted with an 11-year old study, the DISC Style Analysis Profile. I had taken that analysis when I first met Dan Miller of 48days.com. Of course, then, Dan wasn’t such a celebrity; he was The Business Source, and he introduced me to the DISC.
Now, eleven years later, I blow the dust off the report and bring its results to Kent Julian’s Speak It… Continue
