And then there are those who don’t care what others believe and march to the beat of our own drum.
I spent the bulk of my 70 years in leadership positions. One of the main tenets of leadership is to exhibit the behavior you want your followers to emulate.
In the words of Admiral Farragut, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” Never pay attention to what others are doing. Always do what is right and eventually you will prevail.
Personally (a religion of one), I believe in “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Does this look like the Kingdom of God? Not to me. Which means it is a work in progress.
Jesus gave us the blueprint. It’s up to us to follow it.
Just my extremely personal idea.
I often wonder if God created man for comic relief.
Sometimes there is nothing more important than another person with big ears that are open and a heart to match.
I do have to say this about AT&T. When they bought out McCaw Cellular, it was with the intention of running their wireless business under McCaw principles (which were good).
Several years later, I was working for Vanguard Cellular when they were being bought out by AT&T (see a theme here). I have to say that many of the people I dealt with during the transition were the same people I knew at McCaw. They seemed to think it worthwhile to stay on.
AT&T tried to hire me back to the headquarters across the lake from Seattle. I told them I had a 2600 sq foot home on a wooded 3/4 acre lot on a lake and a 5 minute commute from work. If they could pay me enough to afford that in Seattle, I’d go. About the only property that comes close to fitting that description in the Seattle area would put me next door to Bill Gates.
I know that the Resurrection is the central theme of Christianity, but I think the Incarnation is also important. Think about it. God liked us so much he wanted to join our club. That’s one hell (?) of a celebrity endorsement for the human race.
There are other things going on in the world besides Trump. However, you have to go to BBC America or on line to find out what they are.
Second best way to meet women in a park. Walk a dog.
Best way, push a stroller with a baby and wear a sign that says, “I am her uncle.”
There is such a thing a juice-jacking. It’s “free” power at public locations. There is more than electrons going up and down that cable: there’s data too.
Men are from Earth. Women are from Earth. We share the same turf. Deal with it.
