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…

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…

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…

This is the time of year when people are in the gym, eating kale, and going to bed early. It’s “New Year’s Resolution” season, and we’re all talking about what we’re NOT going to do, eat, or be in the new year. If we’re serious about changing ourselves, we have to look at the three…

Storytelling & screenwriting begin with the question “Who is he and what does he want?” The main character has to want something if it’s going to be an interesting story. For it to be an epic story, he has to want something big & important – and – be willing to take extraordinary risk or…
