What is Progress?

C.S. Lewis said something to the effect that we think the guys running fastest are making the most progress. But sometimes, the guy walking in the opposite direction is the one really rockin' it. When you are headed the wrong direction, the first one to turn around makes the best decision. We all make wrong [...]

Setbacks and Obstacles, So What?

I don't mean "so what" in the careless sense. I mean "so what" in the sense that, it doesn't matter, I will still continue to live intentionally. When I was in college, I was also a mentor to some younger students. I remember one of these students would get these panic attacks every night before [...]

Do Your Opinions Matter?

Sometimes we have great ideas that could really make a difference. But unless they get heard, they don't matter. The difference of whether your opinion gets heard and influences the decisions being made, has a lot less to do with whether you have great ideas than whether you know how to sell your ideas.

Reclaiming My Relationships from My Smartphone

The average user checks his smartphone for messages about every six and a half minutes. The constant blinking and beeping is designed to get our attention. And since most of the alerts are some form of connection with other people, we find it highly addictive. As humans, we have been designed to connect. Virtual connections [...]

Putting God First in Your Life

Some think that I overdo the best life emphasis. I don't think I am. I passionately believe that we will live our very best life when we live in harmony with Who God is, how He designed us, and how He created the universe to work. There is nothing shallow about that. The best life [...]
