Why You Don’t Need More Clarity

Why You Don’t Need More Clarity

What keeps you up at night? I have asked and been asked this question many times. My usual response relates to God-sized dreams that both inspire and paralyze. I'm currently reading a book by Pete Wilson called What Keeps You Up At Night?: How To Find Peace While Chasing Your Dreams. One of the things Pete shares in this book is the idea of clarity. Have you ever wanted more of this? Have you wanted to see beyond the uncertainty in your life, to the next step that you need to take? How…Read more …
Lead Like You Run

Lead Like You Run

I run but, I am hardly a runner. Yes, I try to run at least three times a week, but it is purely for the cardio. Just trying to keep the ol' heart muscle pumping well.

She is among few of her peers here who have taken the…Read more …

Effectively Communicating

Effectively Communicating

  Great post by Michael Hyatt (I believe originally from Ken Davis) on being an effective communicator.  Great stuff! Listen to most presentations and you will hear a litany of stories half submerged in what might be major points—or maybe just another story. Regardless, 75 percent of the people leave a presentation with no idea what the point of the message was. Even worse, 50 percent of speakers can’t identify the objective of their own talk. During my thirty-five years as a professional speaker, I have been constantly asked the secret to being…Read more …
