If you've followed my blogging journey over the last year or so you'll probably be aware of many of the transitions and lessons I'm learning along the way in this journey of life. The last couple of weeks have been particulary packed full of "journey lessons" and so I wanted to highlight just a few of them as I begin the long trip back home today (I'll be arriving Orlando at 10.47pm EST which is actually 3.47am GMT).
- A legacy is written long before you realize you're "writing" one.
- People would rather learn from what you do rather than what you say.
- Difficulties and obstacles are an essential part of character building.
- Leading effectively is nearly impossible if you've never been "tried in the fire."
- After every "valley" experience, there is a slow climb to the top of the next mountain.
- Christians shouldn't approach death as if it is the end of life, but as if it's the beginning of real living, because it is.
- My wife and kids mean the world to me.
- I am truly grateful for good friends! Friends like Byron and Angie Bledsoe, David Melnik, Gene Cristan and my incredible lead team.
- Tylenol P.M. makes long international flights bearable.
