How do you handle it?

You are on a roll.  Focused and in the zone, you tackle your to do list, your next big project, a new schedule for quiet time, that thing which has been calling your name.  Then it happens.  Resistance.  Uncertainty.  Frustration.  According to author Steven Pressfield (The War of Art and Do the Work!) any act […]

Vanguards and Cow Catchers

In the days of wide open spaces and wilderness, traveling by rail could be a dangerous business.  I’m not talking about danger brought about by humans, but by any number  of animals that could just happen to be ambling across the tracks at the precise time that a locomotive was scheduled.  Enter British engineer Charles […]

What’s Your P.O.V.?

I love to watch shows like Food Network Star or Design Star.  It”s not the competition that delights me.  It is watching talented individuals face the challenges of fitting their own style and voice into whatever the assignment is.  Whether it is a tasty morsel for a pool party for 100 or the white room […]

When God Hits the Pause Button

You are sailing along.  Doors seem to be flying open.  Praising the Lord, you marvel at this season of suddenly, as you reconnect with old acquaintances, are introduced to new partnerships, and see the hand of God at work in your life and in those lives around you.  And then “suddenly”….nothing is happening.  The phone […]
