Wisdom for this day

Posted on February 5th, 2017

"Lord God Omniscient, give me wisdom this day to worship and work aright and be well-pleasing to You. Lord, interpret Yourself to me more and more in Your fullness and beauty."
-Oswald Chambers

Likeable people choose their words

Posted on February 15th, 2016

"The words you use impact the attitude of others.

"For example, you don't have to go to a meeting; you get to go meet with other people. You don't have to create a presentation for a new client; you get to share cool stuff with other people. You don't have to go to the gym; you get to work out and improve your health and fitness.You don't have to interview job candidates; you get to select a great person to join your team.

"We all want to associate with happy, enthusiastic, fulfilled people. The words you choose can help other people feel better about themselves--and make you feel better about yourself, too."


I read this thought shared in an article on inc.com by Jeff Haden. This is #9 from his list of "11 things that exceptionally likeable people do"


Remember the I Am

Posted on November 4th, 2014

Pray about it.
Write about it.
Share about it.

I like the idea in these thoughts that my friend shared from a book he has been reading. It talks about how we can find success in breaking through the old patterns that we want freedom from...


I die to self by the act of belonging to Christ.

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
-Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭24‬ (ESV)


What is my identity?


...all will sing out hallelujah, all will cry out hallelujah


Remember the I Am:

By resisting the beginner’s mind, you make yourself more prone to repeat yourself than to create something new. The attempt to avoid failure, in other words, makes failure more likely. Paying attention to the present moment without letting your thoughts and ideas about the past and the future get in the way is essential.
-Ed Catmull


While we strive for a sinless life, we know we will never be those who need no repentance. We stumble, we fall, but your love and grace helps us to know that our sins may be forgiven. May we know your warm forgiveness and heaven’s joy. Amen.
-Unknown


Light reveals/creates something beautiful; while darkness breeds destruction. May we confess to one another so we might magnify God's beauty. I will lift high Jesus' name by my surrender to Him.

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.
-‭Jesus of Nazareth (John‬ ‭12‬:‭32‬ ESV)

If a person attracts through his personality, that becomes his appeal. If, however, he is identified with the Lord Himself, then the appeal becomes what Jesus Christ can do. The danger is to glory in men, yet Jesus says we are to lift up only Him.

-Oswald Chambers

I commit to carrying this thought with me today.




Hands Head and Heart

Posted on October 27th, 2014

He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.
-St. Francis of Assisi

Perspective of life is revealed in beauty of nature and people

Posted on July 11th, 2014

I read this prayer this morning and have found encouragement in it. I've been contemplating it as my morning moves along.

"Heavenly Father, our lives are full of distractions and our focus on you is sometimes lost. Today, let us stop to behold your majesty, revealed in the beauty of nature an in your children. Amen."

Here are a few photos (that help me consider those thoughts and remember perspective) from last week's camping trip with some dear friends of ours.



Minimalism Fuels Creativity

Posted on May 30th, 2014

Simplify and minimize - external order creates internal possibility

Quote - on debt and creativity

Posted on September 7th, 2013

“The trick is from the business side, to try to be fiscally responsible so you can be creatively reckless."


I like this reminder. It goes along with my tagline:
achieving the greatest intersection of stewardship and creativity

The Key to Good Decision Making

Posted on August 6th, 2013

"The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter."
-Malcolm Gladwell

Understand what variables need to be solved in the equation. Ignore all the rest and simply make the snap decision. Ideally the decision would be one that comes intuitively - likely because of time invested in similar situations - where the necessary variables have already been solved on a subconscious level.

Regardless, I'm really working on this thought. May I not fall prey to my OCD nature of trying to have every path of the maze accounted for. Instead, I want to trust my natural talents and the investment of life experiences that I've built up.

I know I do this well in a live production environment. I almost always seem to make the right call - either during set-up of a stage or mid-show leading the team through a last minute audible that.

I hope I can continue to get better about this in the rest of my life.

Talent & Genius

"Talent hits a target no one else can hit. Genius hits a target no one else can see."
-Arthur Schopenhauer
