Making it Worth it

Whatever I am up to in life is costing my life. If I am just living for myself, I expect to answer for that one day. If I am living for others, it would probably be wise to be focused and committed. I should probably have some sense of why I am here – what […]

Being Successful

Kodak, the film & camera company, sold shares of their stock for $90 or so in 1997. At end of day on January 3, 2012, shares were 76¢. A few months later, Instagram was sold to Facebook for $1 billion. It pays to periodically check to be sure that the horse you are riding is not […]

Friends love all the time. That’s Proverbs 17:17. Agape. They don’t have to want to be around you all the time to still be loving you. Agape. Friends will help you become your full level of awesome. They won’t let you quit. Your mistake doesn’t offend or alienate them. Until we teach a generation of […]
