Things That Cause Fear In Our Hearts

Three words bring fear into our hearts. Change, difference, & doubt. They make us stop in our tracks. Fooling us into being more fragile than we truly are. They make us hesitate. Watch from the sidelines. Look behind us. Hold on to what we had. When we feel any of these words we become uneasy, unsure, and tentative. It’s almost as if these are signals for imminent death. What we fail to...

A Component of Leadership Involves Preparation

Crossing Paths With A Stranger

Sometimes the unexpected can surprise us in a very positive way. I heard a graffiti artist. Erik Wahl, speak at a conference I was attending a few years ago.

My intuition is that thinking and doing are symbiotic. They need to live together...
