Do Nothing But…

Too often we seem to just drift through life letting each moment come and go as it will. Before we know it ten thousand moments have flown by and we are no different (or perhaps worse off). God did not create us to drift through life. But with his leading we live proactive and intentional.  […]

The Walt Disney Compass

Over the past several years I have had a great interest in Walt Disney the man and how the company he built has grown to become an international entertainment giant. Several years ago when I attended Disney World with my family I was captivated by how well they operated and how all the employees, despite […]

Did You Show UP Today?

The older I get the more I realize that time is fleeting. We never know what tomorrow holds or if for us, will it ever come. Much is taught about vision and dreams for the future and I have blogged on it myself. However, if we are not careful, our dreams for the future can […]

Titles and Position will only carry your leadership so far. People often follow those with titles because they have too. In reality they are driven or pushed forward not lead.

Focus – My One Word for 2016

Last year was the first year I chose a single word to define my year. Last year’s word was “Generous.” Yes I will still be generous this year; however, for this year my word will be “Focus.” I always say that I am a slow learner but as I have crossed over into my second […]

Someday is not a Day and neither is Tomorrow

I have to admit I used to be the king of someday. I would love to wile away my time dreaming about someday or tomorrow. When I was very young my Aunt Tootie (Everyone needs an Aunt Tootie) would ask me to spend the night. Being rather attached to my parents I would always respond […]

Well another year has come and gone. Another year of great reads is complete. I did not read as much as I wanted but this was a very busy year for a variety of reasons. As you will see I have a rather eclectic reading list. Also read quite a bit on the historical wring […]

The Jon Stallings’ Daily 5

I have always struggled with goals. Yes part of that is a tendency to be lazy. However, the other part is that if you listen to all the “experts,” you need goals for personal growth, goals for your career, goals for your health, goals for family etc. If you do it their way, you will […]

A Life of Focus is A Life Lived Well

“Devoting a little of yourself to everything means committing a great deal of yourself to nothing.” – Michael LeBoef I have so many interests I am prone to start many projects and prone to finish few. I will start reading three books at a time but I will wind up putting one or two aside […]
