Chances are if you’ve been in your career for any length of time you have acquired a set of skills. Those skills have made you pretty good at your job.
Every job requires a certain skill set (I know that sounds obvious but stay with me) and the more you master those skills the more you advance.
I’m sure you have heard the phrase, “When life gives you lemons make lemonade.”
The old saw encourages us to make the best of less-than-ideal situations. Even though some things aren’t what we expected, good can still come from the bitter.
Last week I was told my grandfather had 12-36 hours left and that I needed to get there as soon as I could to say goodbye.
The drive from New York to West Virginia takes right at 12 hours so I left wondering if I had enough time.
Have you ever wondered how some companies can stay in business when they treat customers so poorly?
It’s becoming more common place and every time I experience it I’m shocked.
Why is it so hard for you to take a day off? I really want you to come up with your best reason.
The reason that would prove God’s idea of taking a vacation every week (a Sabbath) is completely impossible. Got it? Okay hold on to it.
When we think about limits most of us think about trying to break through them. We think of limits holding us back. Limits seem restrictive.

How much vacation time do you get? What if it was possible to not just have 2 weeks or 4 weeks of vacation. What if I could add to your vacation time another 7 ½ weeks every year!!!
No, I’m not talking about becoming a teacher.
You’ve probably heard someone say it’s important to be authentic to who you really are. You should be the person you were designed to be and not try to be someone else. Authenticity is the only thing that matters.
It’s hard to disagree. I mean who wants to be around a fake person?
Have you ever been asked a difficult question and weren’t sure how to answer? Should you walk away or should you wade in?
Being a pastor I find that I get asked a lot of difficult questions. Some questions are heart-breaking like, “Will I go to hell for being divorced?” (In case you’re wondering…No.)
Trying something new takes a bit of courage. It takes even more courage when it seems like everyone else knows what to do or expect except you.
The other day I went for an eye exam and had to have my pupils dilated. I have never had my pupils dilated but I figured it wouldn’t be a big deal. Worst case I’ll just need some sunglasses to protect my enlarged pupils.
