Wisdom Followed

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 10, 2018

No matter how many principles or pithy quotes we develop, wisdom is useless when ignored. It has to be applied, meaning we have to lean on the wisdom of our examined experience, on the wisdom of wise counselors God has put in our lives, make the best decision we can, and then trust God for…

Wisdom Found

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 7, 2018

I believe wisdom starts with ambition. A hungry person wants to learn, wants to become wise. Whether to help themselves or to help others, the wise people I know started seeking wisdom when they were young. They curate principles, constantly adding new ones to their ‘wisdom bank’ and forgetting ones that didn’t pan out. Wisdom…

Radical Wisdom

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 8, 2018

If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you probably already know this, but . . . over the course of the sixty-five years I’ve been awake and conscious, I’ve been a collector of principles. Even before I became a Jesus-follower, I picked up “work smart and not so hard” from my boss…

Action vs. Analysis

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 4, 2018

Ok, here I go again, quoting my friend John Richie . . . “Action reveals options analysis will never find.”  I like this quote because it agrees with so many others woven into the fabric of my being. Like . . . “You can’t steer a parked car.” “Ready, fire, aim.” “Try it, do it,…

There Are No Jokes

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 30, 2018

I used to think I could poke fun at people about their foibles. About height, weight, lack of athleticism, mispronounced words, and personal idiosyncrasies. Hey, we’re all big boys, right? We can take it so why not dish it out? I’ve learned that it’s not true. There are no jokes when it comes to peoples’…

Leaders Go First

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 7, 2018

Drive through Texas, and you’ll see town after town like in the picture above. First, there was a store, then a cafe, then a bank, then a barber shop. Before you know it, there’s a little town with sidewalks, churches, and schools. It struck me that someone had to go first. That first building had…

Three Phases in the Life of an Organization

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 3, 2017

Years ago, I read a book that said a start-up venture has three phases . . . Wander around until you find something. Grow it as fast and as profitably as you can. Change the game. I’ve never forgotten it. And I could bore you to tears with examples. The trick is 1) to know…

Born Stoic, Die Epicurean

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 31, 2017

Historian Will Durant is credited with originating the platitude, ‘born stoic, die epicurean.’ He was speaking of nations, but I believe it applies to organizations and individuals as well. We start out fending for ourselves. We scratch and scrape, wasting little and stretching every dollar and minute for all we can get out of it….

On Monday, I shared 5 of my top personal leadership principles and learnings. Here’s part II of that post with the next 5 . . . Ready, fire, aim – If you have a pretty good idea of what you need to do, get started. In my organizations, ‘ready, fire, aim’ is a merit badge,…
