How Can You Tell? Unanswered Questions?

55%

One Nation, Under God

Earlier this month, I saw an ABC Evening News report that stated 55% of Americans say the Iraq war wasn’t worth it.

Hindsight is 20/20.

Tough choices surround us.

And sometimes suffocate us.

A leader, right or wrong, must make decisions that no one can predict how it will play out.

Same thing when you do nothing.

Same thing with your own personal responsibility, like I was saying in yesterday’s post, “You Won’t”.

Missed The Mark?

Dude, they totally missed the mark on this one. Seriously. I wouldn’t lie to you.

And you hate to call somebody out when they’ve made a mistake, but this time, I just had to.

See? What did I tell you? Merry Christmas! 🙂

Some mistakes are easier to make

Mistakes!

We all make them. We all are “victims” of them. We can never escape that reality that we’ll continue to make more.

Maybe all we can hope for is two simple things.

1. To try to make fewer mistakes as we grow.

2. To forgive ourselves (and others) when a mistake happens.

Case in point, five minutes ago, at 6:47AM, I realized I’ve been working since 5:00Am, and forgot to kneel and pray after waking. Remember the post a few days ago where I challenged myself to start every day on my knees?

Anyway, I forgot this morning. So I simply forgave myself, walked back to the bedroom, knelt and prayed.

Easy.

Our dog followed me from our office to the bedroom. With my eyes closed, I could hear him enter. I extended my hand out.

I knew he would accept it and place his muzzle on my hand. Then he nestled right up next to me.

He’s so predictable. His love is an unconditional love. My goal in life is to become the kind of person he thinks I am.

Do you have a big goal? Hope so. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
