Make 2014 Your Best Year Ever!
(Or . . . Don’t Set Goals for 2014!)


So why shouldn’t you set goals for 2014? Actually, you should, but not until you’ve first done something else! And then it just might be your best year ever.

In part of my commitment to lifelong leadership development, I have joined Platform University, Michael Hyatt’s organization for communicators. It’s expensive but worth it! Especially when it comes to the leadership gold I receive in monthly doses.

NAB Update

As the end of the year draws near, many will wish to give to the ministries of the North American Baptists, generously planting seeds for our missionaries and churches to preach the gospel, in word and deed, throughout the world in 2014. We are grateful to God for those who so faithfully spread God’s love through financially supporting NAB’s ministries. Thank you for giving!

As you consider donating to NAB in tax year 2013, here are a few factors to keep in mind to make sure that we are able to give you a tax receipt for calendar year 2013: 


Thinking… in the Age of Execution

When Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan wrote their bestseller Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done, it took the business and leadership worlds by storm. Why? Because there was a HUGE gap between what leaders were promising and the results they were delivering.

Everyone talks a good game (or shares a good vision, or explains how things can be better in the future), but very few people actually deliver. Talk is cheap—usually free.

What about your talk? What about mine?

Do you and I deliver in a way that adds value… or do we just talk?
