Perception Is NOT Reality – Part I

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 27, 2012

“Hey man, my wife is driving me crazy. She doesn’t do anything to show me that she loves me.” “Really? You honestly believe what you’re saying?” “Perception is reality, man. That’s the way it looks to me. That’s the way it feels. I’m about to be outta’ here!” One of the most common phrases I…

The “Heavy Water” of Trust

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 23, 2012

In a nuclear power plant, “heavy water” keeps the reactor cool as it burns the fuel, which creates the steam that turns the turbines that generate electricity. “Heavy water” is actually deuterium oxide, which is like water, but about 11% more dense. (There’s your physics lesson for today!) All the catastrophes (and near catastrophes) at…

Almost all of us guys get up every day and go to work. Work involves people, and we deal with all kinds of attitudes. Some, we’d just rather not have to deal with at all if we didn’t have to. But others are a joy to be around. And I’m not just talking “Christian” vs….

It was early in my business career. Our start up venture was a little over two years old. We had opened our first expansion city office, and it was awful. Wrong market, wrong people, wrong location, wrong tactics, wrong everything! On a flight with our chairman and our attorney, it became immanently clear that we…

“Denial” is not a river in Egypt

Okay, most people don’t really want to talk about death.  We avoid deathly-ill people.  None of us feel competent in being around the surviving family when death has struck; we don’t know what to say… what to do or how to handle ourselves. And we do a similar dance when it comes to our own…

I had lunch with one of “my guys” the other day. It was our “one on one” to get to know each other. He toured me around his office, introduced me to his partners, and totally blew me away with how smart and competent he was. But at lunch, when we started talking about marriage,…

In my last post, I shared what I’d missed about the “spring” that Jesus puts in us, a “spring of (living) water welling up to eternal life”. (John 4:14) At the very time that Jesus was saying these words to the woman at the well, his disciples were in town buying food. (vs. 8). But…

We’ve spent a ton of time talking to church leaders from all over the country about mentoring. The recurring theme is that men who will take the time to invest in younger men are rare. Very rare. Why is this? I didn’t set out on a mission to answer this question, but I think I…

O.K. here’s a tough one for you… If you were to come into a bunch of money, would the people who know you be genuinely happy for you? …or this one… If you were to be honored with an award, like “Employer of the Year”, would your employees be glad? Would they happily tell their…

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 25, 2012

Parenting is tough. It’s one of the hardest jobs around. There’s no simple manual, no established formula, and God throws curve balls by making every child different. Over time, you grab hold of any principle that makes sense; you try it and if it works, it becomes yours. So I’m going to propose one. Create…
