Principle led Living

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 11, 2013

“In Atlanta Georgia, traffic is always an issue but rarely an excuse.” “People resist when you want something from them but they’re open when you want something for them.” “The one human quality you can always depend on is selfish interest.” These are principles. I collect them… from sermons or friends or books. A few…

Are you waiting….or procrastinating?

Since 200, over 100 guys have been “Radically Mentored” around my dining room table. Around the world, another 2,400 guys have had similar experiences. Some mentor poured his cup into their cup. They made a covenant commitment to pour their cups into some younger guys’ cups…when God lets them know they’re ready. Some are now ‘paying…

The Good, Fast or Cheap Test

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 21, 2012

In my effort to pass along everything I share with my mentees, I have to pass along the “good”, “fast” or “cheap” test. One of my first mentors, Pat MacMillan taught me this almost 30 years ago. It goes like this…. Good, fast or cheap. You can have two, but you can’t have all three….

In case you were out on another planet, you heard there was a Supreme Court ruling on Thursday. People are all fired up; celebration on one side and anger on the other. What to do. Jesus made this crystal clear for us when He walked this earth. He said that we’re men and women under…

The Lesser of Two Evils is Still Evil

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 7, 2012

Last August, I wrote (here) about how functionally, decisions come down to choices between the greater of two goods or the lesser of two evils. There’s another dimension I didn’t mention….the lesser of two evils is still evil. “I may still smoke, but at least I’m not gaining weight.” “Looking at porn on-line is better…

The Idea of the Thing

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 31, 2012

Learning to recognize the “thing” versus the “idea of the thing” is huge. For years, I kept my eye out for a ’66 yellow GTO like the one I had as a kid. One day, I saw it. It jumped out of my browser and grabbed me. (I can’t remember how I got to ebay…

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…

Goal Achieving or Tension Relieving

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 11, 2011

Everything we do has purpose. Maslow would say the first priority of every human being is survival. So our motive for dodging the oncoming car, our motive for eating when we’re hungry, our desire for sleep…all come from our innate drive to survive. But after you get past that most basic motive, what drives our…

There’s a long-running debate among a few of my friends. We pretty much agree that God revealed His moral will for us through the Scriptures. And that He keeps His sovereign will to himself. We’ll have to wait ‘til heaven to understand all He was doing as we lived our lives here on earth. But…

Decision Making….thinking about it

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 17, 2011

“All decisions, in the moment, from the perspective of the decision maker, are between the greater of two goods or the lesser of two evils. There are no ‘right or wrong’ decisions.” When I heard this principal from Robert McKee’s book on story – I was repulsed. “Of course there’s a right or wrong decision….
