What is In Your Hands?

We heard a sermon yesterday that we feel is important to share. In the Bible, Moses had his Staff and David had his slingshot and a stone. With those primitive tools, they did amazing things. The other amazing thing is that we are all created with our tools to do amazing things. As we set off on a new week, we would like to encourage everyone to think of all the tools available to each of us ind...

Have a Yegative Attitude

Dill was in a meeting last week and someone asked, "how do you stay positive?" It brought a smile to his face as Bryan Brousseau, an early ignitor, popped into his memory. They were in Seoul, South Korea bringing the Olympics to Life working with Coca-Cola on the 2004 Global Olympic Torch Relay. Everything that could go wrong with the stage video screen was going wrong, and we had less than one ...

Your Destiny is the Consequence of Your Daily Decisions

We have seen this written in many places with no mention of the author. It is a shame, because he or she deserves credit for such a great thought. As we prepare to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Blue Planet Run here at the Farm, it is with great respect as we think of those 20 Intrepid Spirits who ran around the 40th parallel in 94 days. We stepped off from the United Nations Plaza at...

Stay Low . . . Keep Moving

These words are not only true in the military but also in life. Some days we just need to s...

Chapter 14 – Positioning Yourself

If you do not position yourself someone else will and it is usually not complimentary.   A positioning statement is not a statement about you but rather a statement about what you do or the value that you bring to your target audience. It is not a factual claim, it is a reason that people will want you on their team, that they will want to be around you. Your positioning statement...
