When Machines Go Wild!

When Machines Go Wild! Basic Solutions to Complicated ProblemsSometimes... for no "apparent" reason... machines do funny things. There is a reason. There is always a reason. But the reason is not apparent. Like last night when we were nearly done closing out the night and we were called to assist with an ice machine that had decided to produce ice on it's own. With a giggle the ice machine stopped, but with one light tap it started up again. So we giggled it again and it stopped. We called security to call maintenance and they'll have it all fixed before I show up today... probably...

But this makes me think about life and success. I had a business mentor that told me that there is absolutely NO problem in life or business that is a result of complicated issues. It may look very complicated. It may seem from the outside and outset that there is no way to fix the problem and that it's to complicated for anyone to solve. However this mentor had spent a career solvin…

Prison Praise: Break out of your circumstances!

COME:
Acts 16
23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. 24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed. 27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. 28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, "Do yourself no harm, for we are all here." 29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 And he brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?"

Best In The World!

Core Concept:
Staying true to your core concept/theme means that you are staying true to the thing or things you can be best in the world at. Now when I say "Best In The World" I don't mean that there is no one better than you. One could say that it's debatable whether there is a difference between Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix in ability.

However, There is no debate that they operate in different styles. It's clear, from a non partial casual observer that they are both excellent players and have their own unique style. They both add something to the world of music.

The idea here is that they are both "Best In The World" at what they do. This is because they have something of themselves to add to their music and nobody else does it quite like them.

What is there, in your life, that you do BEST! This is not to say that there is nobody else who is better, this is rather to say that there is something that you do really well, and nobody does it quite like y…

Time is Precious - Build Your House Right

Time
Time is Money. That's what they say. I say Time is worth FAR more than money. Fortunes have been lost and rebuilt by one person more than once. I say time is worth more. Time is possibly the only commodity that cannot be replaced.

Have you ever taken a look back and realized all the time wasted on things that didn't bring you progress, and didn't add value to your life? Life is like building a house. If you don't start with a good foundation, take time to measure and cut, draft out plans, follow through with the right materials, spend time doing it right, make sure not to cut corners or scimp out on details.

Logs
Take time to enjoy your life. The person in this video not only took the time, 9 months, to build this project right, but he took the extra care to video the experience. This is a lesson we could use. Keeping a diary/blog of your life, even if you keep it for your eyes only, is a great way to keep track of your life. This has many benefits. Pictures, Diaries,…

Paphos: How to take a country for Jesus!

COME:
Acts 13:3-12
3 Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away. 4 So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus. 5 And when they arrived in Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews. They also had John as their assistant. 6 Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus, 7 who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith. 9 Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him 10 and said, "O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord? …

Barnabas, The Apostle of Encouragement

Barnabas, The Apostle of Encouragement
Who was Barnabas?
Son of EncouragementAn Apostle in the Earlier Church - To the Gentiles, just like PaulSeeker of the RejectedGiver of Self and PossessionsPassionate for People's Prosperity (Spiritually, Physically, Financially)Prone to a fault to avoid conflict...Passionate to the point of conflict to protect and help another grow. 
Introduction to Barnabas:
Barnabas is one of the more interesting side characters the New Testament. He often overlooked because he is always seen as he interacts with the other Apostles, primarily Peter and Paul. However, Barnabas is an interesting character in and of himself. As I took to study him, there was much more written about him than I had before realized.
Barnabas has been believed by some to have been the rich young man that came to Jesus and was told to "sell what you have give to the poor, and follow Me..." (Matt 19:21, Luke 18:22, and Mark 10:21) A few interesting articles were written to that…

Key to Success- Develop Your Inner Hedgehog

Keys to Success Develop Your Inner Hedgehog Your Life Core Message/Theme/Concept 1 VS 1000 “I have far more respect for the person with a single idea who gets there than for the person with a thousand ideas who does nothing.” ~ Thomas EdisonI was thinking about this. I've been the guy who has the thousand ideas. I must learn to remember my hedgehog concept (core concept) and stick to it. My life core concept is good success, hence this blog. Everything I do is about good success. Not just success but good success.

Developing your hedgehog concept is a life long process. There is always some refining to do, but at you look at your life, what drives you, your personal motive for doing what you do, not just at work, but in general... there is a theme that runs through it all. No matter how diverse your favorite activities are, there is always a theme.

What is the hedgehog concept?
Jim Collins writes about it in a book I suggest you read called: Good to Great. The following is my synopsis:

Faith in His Name

COME: Acts 3:11-16 11 Now as the lame man who was healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them in the porch which is called Solomon's, greatly amazed. 12 So when Peter saw it, he responded to the people: "Men of Israel, why do you marvel at this? Or why look so intently at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? 13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. 14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. 16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. HEAR:
His Name, through faith in His name, has mad…

The Working Christian's Battle

Working Christians Battle: 
Work is hard sometimes. For the believer it can be especially hard sometimes. But why is it hard? We are not only trying to do the right thing, we are trying to do the right thing with people watching us.

As a coach I know that taking calls on the phone is one thing, and taking live calls in front of 30 new hires watching you and needing to learn everything you are doing, trying not to make any big mistakes that they'll have to unlearn... that is a different ball game entirely.

There are people watching us at work. It's one thing when you are newly saved, people don't know yet. You curse about a rude customer and no-body really notices, they do it to. It's another issue entirely when you are "The Token Christian" in your department, probably more vocal and known for your stance on issues and love for God than any other Christian there, and people know you write blogs and do things for the ministry locally... Then you get every eye wat…
