Are You Living Life Forward?

Posted on August 24, 2016 at 7:37am 0 Comments

My good friend Kent Julian has a business that revolves around living life forward. As a matter of fact, it's called Live It Forward. In case you're not familiar with the concept, he expresses it as "empowering you to move from dream to do". I've known him for a number of years, and he not only teaches others to do it but lives it in his own life.

Well, guess what? This year will be the inaugural launch of his new Live…

Delta Airlines Should Switch Over to a 550 Team Setup

Posted on August 12, 2016 at 9:28am 1 Comment

I'm sure by now most of you have heard of the monstrous computer FUBAR that Delta Airlines faced this week. If you were trying to fly Delta and you're reading this, I'm very sorry. I've slept in airports on several occasions, and it is not fun.

Delta's computer shutdown and subsequent loss of service for virtually everyone in their system is common. Not the specifics but the idea that a small issue cripples an entire operation. Delta is experiencing a problem very…

Sorry it took a while to respond to your friend request.

Who wouldn't want to be a friend with a man who has a cool beard and has his personal berserker mode!

Look forward to being in the SIF Group with you.

Hi Dr. Dave (as I've heard you called), please call me William. It's a pleasure to connect with you and I will also say I enjoyed your guest blog post last week on Dan's website. I used to be one to follow the rules, but have come to realize that making positive and dramatic shifts in one's life requires your methodology - ie: breaking many rules!

Good luck on the weight loss. My day J-O-B has created a sedentary environment where I have added 20-25 #'s in the last 2 years. Definitely want to break that habit as well as the bad habit of being an employee. ;)

Cheers!

William

Aren't we both so lucky.  Life is always exciting.  

I love the imagery you used to describe yourself ... a human puzzle master. 

I look forward to being part of this amazing group.  Let me know if there are any ideas you would like feedback on.

I sat next to you at the Nov. seminar. I just joined this website and wondered what you have to say about it.I love the scripture you listed regarding all things done decently and in order. It hit home with me because I know all things are in perfect and devine order so I am still waiting. I am still searching for the work I love.
