Not the whale movie. When I go to church, we follow an agenda. Welcome, confession, absolution, prayers, offerings, praise, scripture, sermon, more praise and communion, and the blessing.

From Christian Simpson, mega coach for aspiring millionaires: “The vast majority of the human race is sleepwalking through this experience we call life, hoping to make it safely to death.” Safely?

Hmmmm? That was the title to my Tall Tale speech last night. I got a few polite chuckles. I used the Rat Race* formula…Start with something believable and then pull it out to all sorts of wacky. I started out with the situation: the floor under my toilet was rotted out due to water seepage […]

I know THAT feeling. “I’ve done quite enough accommodating, growing, adapting, adjusting, and working on my own issues. Also, apologizing.” What if growth doesn’t have to be fixing what’s wrong with you? Accommodating, adapting, adjusting, and working on your own […]
Back in the days of shipping trade, when that was the best way to get goods from point A to point B, there was a lot of risk to be managed. You’re thinking, “The fastest way from Italy to France was by boat? From Turkey to Spain? Why?!” No mountains, no animals, faster pace, the cargo […]
Do you feel you’re losing control? That something is pulling you inexorably in the wrong direction? That this is NOT the path you want to follow but you don’t have a choice? Oh? Then you’re driving in Omaha after 1/4″ of snow. There were pileups on 90th and Burt, 87th and Burt and 84th and […]
