Transitions are always interesting.
I’ve learned from writing here that, as time passes we are moved from one place to another. I see it in my writing. As I look at what I’ve written about over time, I see where I’m moving. Blogging is Continue reading “Transitions”
Sometimes there are things that are so culturally polarizing, they create such hatred and arguments, that you want to avoid it. In this season where our nation is so polarized I almost hate to broach the subject. I’m afraid of who I might alienate by the next statements on this post.
The Spurs are the best example of team I’ve ever found. I don’t just mean basketball, I mean the best team. Now I have to address all the Miami fans out there, then I’ll come back.
A friend of mine and I were talking about the Finals and he put it aptly: Continue reading “Team Wins”
I work for an organization that is values driven.
You may have some ideas of what that means already, so I’ll explain a bit to avoid any confusion. You see, we aren’t a not-for-profit organization. We’re a for profit business. “OK, so your’ value is making money?” No, not so much. I mean, we’re certainly profitable and we need to make money in order to keep doing what we do. While at the same, that’s not our highest value. “Values Driven” means Continue reading “Values – In Work”
My wife and I have this discussion about once a week. No, it’s not about finances. Hold on, I’ll come back to it.
I used to be really messy.
When I was a teenager my room would be a mess. Clothes all over there floor, bed not made, you get the idea. Standard Teenager. Then I got into college, and

Every week, I lead a small group of teenagers at a bible study. Every week I start with the same questions. Keep that in mind, we’ll come back.
I was a part of a small group of college students. From that small group, a church grew up. One of the first things we did was talk about what we wanted to see out of this group and then search through Continue reading “Values – In Church”
Andy Stanley has said “You’re going to cheat someone. The question is who?” In fact, he wrote a book on it. You may, or may not, have noticed that the blog has been dead for about a week. There’s a reason. Last week we had a difficult family situation and Continue reading “Who will you cheat?”
What are you doing at 10X? I’ll explain.
A long time ago, I liked knowing everything. I liked being the go to guy. I’d always try to learn as much as I could about anything, so that I could be the guy with all the answers. I still like learning, but for very different reasons now. Continue reading “10X”
I skipped church this past Sunday. As a staff member, this isn’t normal for me. I was giving my wife a weekend off and took my kids to their grandparents house. On Sunday morning, over breakfast, I had a conversation with my mom and dad about greeting on Sundays (They have been in ministry for over 30 years). Continue reading “How’s your first impression?”
Are you from an ask or a guess culture? You may be unfamiliar with these concepts. If you’re like me, you’re already putting the pieces together of what ask culture and guess culture are. I’ll give you a short explanation and for further clarity, you can read about these concepts at 99u, The Guardian, or the original concept at ask.metafilter.com. These articles came across my desk this week and I had a need to share them. For me, it explained some otherwise nuanced things in my relationships with others. I think it will also explain some relational pain points to you in regards to asking vs guessing cultures. Continue reading “Asking vs Guessing”
