Join the Hard Work Network
Many of you know of this little idea Josh Bullocand I came up with called the "Hard Work Network" (HWN).
The concept is simple. Build a page on your web site centered around a few things you are currently trying to accomplish. This page is designed to be a companion to the standard "About" page, but should…Continue

Well it is just about that time, Christmas! We kick into neutral and enjoy life differently from any other time of the year. The retailers probably don’t get to enjoy much time off because they are working hard to get as much stuff…Continue

This was the fist IDC Project where we took a vote to see which of three suggested activities we would do. This is the activity that won. I’d like to thank Jason Vandehey for suggesting it.Continue

One of the changes that I want to make is to try new things more often and be more adventurous.
Recently, Claudia showed me how she learned to crack an egg with one hand and told me how it was helpful while holding our 4 month old.
While making breakfast a few days later (not holding our 4 month old), I thought, “I should try it.” However, I soon shot the idea down knowing that I had tried it years ago without success. After all, I can make eggs just fine…Continue
I was listening to a podcast recently and the listener mentioned, that while she was an “introvert”, she was also outgoing, social, and liked to be around people. (Jump to the blog)…Continue

"Integrity Counter Tops, this is James."
"Sure, we make laminate counter tops."
"Yes, self edge is eighteen per foot plus five per foot to install."
"Okay, well if you need me to come out and do a bid just let me know."
That is how I answered my phone the first three years I was in business.
I made a common mistake. I assumed that I could run my company with the exact same…Continue

I just had to share this picture of Matthew. It was taken as he entered the great room as we were decorating the tree a few days after Thanksgiving. The look on his face says it all! With his vision and hearing impairments there are not many things that will draw him in and catch his attention.
I have had a gap in my writing for this blog due to a demanding…Continue

"Never was any heart truly great and generous that was not also tender and compassionate."
Compassion is such an integral part of who we need to become and so often so overlooked. We usually think of compassion in specific circumstances in one’s life. We fail to see that compassion needs to be at the very essence and core of who we are and everything we do. If we can…Continue

This week is going to be one of the best weeks of my life. This week will be the week that my wife and I pay off our final debt. Its been a long time coming. We have been fighting to pay off our debt for about 5 years. Now finally the last $4400 will be paid off.
On December 14, 2011 I got a phone called that completely changed our financial plan. During the Christmas season Dave Ramsey was doing a different giveaway each day, from tv's to books and cash. I heard…
It’s a madhouse out there! People running around with this crazed look in their eyes, they don’t even smile at each other anymore. In fact, I don’t think they even see each other!! It’s a mad dash to get everything they ‘need’! They are deep in the Christmas induced coma and, get out of their way, they are on a mission to find the perfect cashmere sweater for their…Continue

Pushing aside her desires for self-expression and creativity, the holding pattern she found herself in, was keeping her from growing into the woman that she, (deep down) knew she could become. (Jump to the show.)Continue

Every week I am on the radio. I do a segment for my job. I'm not the "host" of the show, but rather the side-kick. That's fine with me. We have a great time for an hour and I meet some very interesting people. When folks converge on the small studio it's can get noisy in there very quickly.…

Here I thought I was going to shatter the world with a unique concept to help explain a strange phenomenon. I woke up this morning with the thought of why we don’t achieve success. Why are we afraid of accomplishing goals and bettering ourselves? The term “negative success” popped into my mind. I was excited and thought that I had just created a new way of looking at human behavior.
Ah, the power of Google…I just Googled “negative success” and it turns out a couple of Ph.D.’s…Continue

This week I was offered a chance to command an Air Force Operations Group. After four years away from flying, doing a variety of educational opportunities, deploying to Korea for two years, and now an assignment at the Pentagon, I'll return to flying. Commanding Air Force units in any level is always an honor, but a group is a unique opportunity. It will allow me to focus on my crews without having to worry too much about the length of the grass around the front gate or the condition of the…Continue

I had such a busy day today it didn't dawn on me until a few hours ago that December 17th is the anniversary of my mothers' sudden passing. She was a school teacher who loved her work. She was creative, patient, straightforward and nurturing. The news of her death slapped me in the face hard enough to knock me over a chair. I was sad and sullen for weeks. I talked to her Thursday morning. Saturday at noon, I got the…Continue
