From Good To Great

In his book, “Good to Great,” Jim Collins says that the secret to a great business is “getting the right people on the bus, the right people off the bus, and moving people to the right seats on the bus.”
That metaphor also works for your life. Every life is lived in community, which also affects your mind and thoughts. not every person will help make your life “great.” You need to invite some new people onto your “bus,” move some people around (“excuse me, actually, I am the driver, not you”) and…some people need to be moved out of you life. Or, at least, out of your inner circle and out of your daily life and mind.
…once you get people on, off, and in the right seats (you in the drivers seat!)…then you’re really ready to get your life rumbling down the road in the right direction!

I have been a missionary. I have been a pastor. I have been to seminary. Right now, I'm all about getting healthy, and caring for my family. The healthier I get, the closer I seem to get to God. ...and life seems to make more and more sense. It's working for me. Join me on my journey, if you would like.
