What Do You Live For?

In your daily routine, are you consciously engaged, moment to moment?

This is what I have trained myself to do. Maybe it’s because, as a professional speaker (a preacher man of sorts), that the best preaching is a great example, not rhetoric.

If you really want to know my secrets, that’s one of the biggest. To not be a hypocrite.

Retired Disney Institute Keynote Speaker and Prolific Blogger. Five daily, differently-themed personal blogs (about life's 5 big choices) on five interconnected sites.


  1. “On my honor, I will do my best
    To do my duty to God and my country
    and to obey the Scout law.
    To help other people at all times,
    To keep myself physically strong,
    Mentally awake and morally straight.”

    I still remember it to this day. I even checked to make sure my memory hadn’t failed me.

    No rhetoric. Just authenticity. At least I strive to be. If I fall, I get back up and try again.

  2. David, fall down seven, get up eight.
    There is something fundamentally practical about the Boy Scouts of America.
    Sure, there are issues with inclusion.
    You know, there are always issues with everything.
    No one and no thing is perfect (except God, which is my personal belief).
    I mean, remember we had a President of the United States that took unacceptable liberties with an intern. That was pretty imperfect.
    This beautiful world we live in, tarnished everywhere by hate, injustice, poverty, famine.
    If we can accept the Boy Scouts practices as imperfect, then we can start to accept the Boy Scouts as about as perfect as we can imperfectly be.
