WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Well, the short answer is that I LOVE “doing stuff” if there is a reason. Not being busy to be busy, but to DO something that will mean something, make an impact, make a difference. I think that’s what we all want.
So few of us actually THINK about what we “can” do, fewer still then strategically, purposefully, PLAN on how they may make a difference, even a smaller number actually DO.
Since I was a very young person, I have not been able to stop myself from thinking in this way. It’s as if God has turned a little switch on in my brain that I can’t shut off.
Truth is, I like the switch being on…
I LOVE the hustle of business, I like getting in a room with nothing but brilliant people, a clean whiteboard, and lots of passion.
I LOVE getting things done! YES, it’s freaking hard, but anything worth doing is gonna be hard. If it’s easy, that’s probably a sign it’s probably not all that important.
The world says “I’m too busy”, “that’s too much work”, “that’s impossible”.
The world says “The rich shouldn’t be rich, I want something for free”.
The world says “that’s not fair”.
The world says “serve yourself first”.
I believe the course society is on to be firmly headed in a direction of ruin and self-service
Billions of people drifting through their life, totally unaware of the fact they are headed nowhere and have no real purpose or meaning to their life. They live for the weekend, they work for the man, and they blame everyone around them for the life they have.

I want to be the kind of husband God has called me to be. The kind that cares for his wife above myself, and above my accomplishments.
