Asleep at the Wheel

Posted by Kevin Harris on November 7, 2016

Have you ever been asleep at the wheel? In the business world, it’s called strategic drift. How many of you still carry a Nokia or Motorola cell phone? Or have a Myspace page? Sometimes it’s the size of an organization, an overly mature culture, or the arrogant belief that develops when you are #1 ….

I think about Mary (Jesus’ mother) all the time. I picture her standing there, watching people bowing down and worshipping her baby. From kings to shepherds, they brought gifts and stared at her newborn. Scripture says she, “treasured these things in her heart.” Instead of “treasured,” other versions use the word “held” or “pondered.” The…

Teaching Your Children to Make Decisions

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 1, 2016

Someone said there’s three things that determine the person we become: 1) our DNA, 2) the way we were parented when we were young, and 3) the decisions we make. I don’t remember a single time my parents talked to me about decision-making. I bought my first car, chose my wife, bought our first house…

Obedience

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 12, 2016

It’s a word we use but don’t think much about. Mostly, it’s what we want from our children, and what we notice when it’s missing in other people’s kids. In religion, it’s the reason crazies blow things up and justify it by saying they were obeying Allah or the Quran. Or why people who call…

“I Can’t, I Have To . . .”

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 21, 2016

Have you ever had to tell someone “I can’t, I have to . . .”? It’s called ‘negative assertion.’ On one side of the comma, you’re saying ‘no’ . . . on the other side, you’re saying ‘yes.’ You have to say ‘no’ to one thing in order to say ‘yes’ to something else. Negative…

When To Quit

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 21, 2015

I’ll never forget meeting with an entrepreneur who was looking for investment in his startup company. His idea wasn’t all that unique . . . in fact it wasn’t unique at all. I asked how long he’d been at it. He said “A little over a year.” I asked how he’d funded things so far….

This isn’t going to be one of those ‘sunshine up your skirt’ posts, but it’s a reality. A reality most guys don’t want to face. We just want to get stuff done. We don’t want to think about it . . . we know what we’re doing. “Don’t question us, just get out of the…

A Problem Without a Solution is a Fact

Like most of my best stuff, I got this from my friend John. But like most of his best stuff, he got it from another really smart guy, in this case, former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres. Here’s the quote. . . “If a problem has no solution, it may not be a problem, but…

Waiting for God

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 1, 2014

“I’m just waiting for God to give me direction.” “God says ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or ‘wait’. Right now I’m waiting.” “I don’t want to get ahead of God.” We’ve all said these things. They’re part of our ‘Christian-ese,’ our ‘church-speak.’ But are they true? Biblical? Helpful? Or error . . . even folklore? “Waiting for God…

Surrender to Who?

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 17, 2014

Another dimension of surrender has to do with who you’re surrendering to. Surrender is hard because it’s humiliating. It’s admitting you’ve got nothing left to fight with. It’s failure from an ego perspective, so it’s easier to surrender to someone who’s respected and who’ll treat you with dignity. It’s just that no one really knows…
