What Was Your Answer?

Yesterday’s post asked, “What do followers want”?

What was your answer? Mine was simple.

Passion!

Followers want a leader who has passion. Passion to make a difference. Passion to do good. For other people.

Ever wonder why people do the things they do? Ever wonder why you do the things you do? I do. Tomorrow, I’ll share my “why?”. Let’s compare again. Not comparing to see who’s right or wrong, simply an exercise to get us thinking.

“An unexamined life is not worth living”. Why are you here? What’s your purpose? Carpe diem.

What Do Followers Want?

What do followers want?

Ever thought about a question like this?

Ever think about it long enough to determine a firm answer?

Why not try it right now. Think about this question.

Tomorrow, I’ll reveal an answer and we can see how closely we think. Carpe diem. 🙂

Is Today The Day?

Is it?

Is today the day you do the thing you’ve been wanting to do, but haven’t found the courage?

Do what you fear and the death of that fear is certain.

If not today, when?

Seriously. Carpe diem. 🙂

Try

That’s all we can do really, isn’t it? Try.

Seems simple enough. Just try.

Try to do what?

Try to do your best. To be a good and decent person, using a moral compass as our guide.

jeff noel.org is one of the ways I try to practice what I preach. But you already knew that, right?

PS. (gulp) How do you think I’m doing?

Why The Spiritual Basics?

We can never get bored with the spiritual basics. Can we? What tempts us to get bored? Why do we think the basics ae relatively unimportant? Do we even think about such things?

Is it because they are too basic. Too elementary? Too simple? Is this why it’s not on our daily radar screen?

Why?

We can never get bored with the basics. Ever! What example do we set for the people following us – family, friends, colleagues and others we don’t even know about.

Tomorrow marks the seven month “anniversary” of starting every day on my knees. After 50 years on our planet, it occurred to me that starting each day on my knees was as basic as it gets. And yet, I had never done it. Why?
