Your Family Is An Organisation


What is the essential mission or purpose of this organisation, and what is its main strategy in accomplishing that purpose?

What is your family all about?  Where are you leading your family? Do you have a clear destination in mind? Do you have a flight plan?

People are willing to invest time and energy into running their business, but when it comes to their family, they think, ‘Oh, I don’t need to do that.’ 

They think, ‘My family isn’t going to fire me, but my boss might.’

Is your family a mission-less family? Who is the spiritual head of your family? Who is the spiritual heart of your family? 

If the family is the most important organisation in our lives, as many people believe, why do we spend so much time at work planning, clarifying what success looks like and how we’re going to get there, and then we come home, we’re so reactive and unintentional about family life? It doesn’t make any sense.

Why not use some of the business tools that help grow your companies at home, and see how your family will turn out.

Your family needs a mission to guide it toward intentional living.

Remember, no other success in public life can compensate for failure in the home. For if you have failed at home you have failed eternally.

What Next? Take Time To Reflect


The end of the year is a great time to take stock of the year, to look ahead and to reflect on your life wheel because it encourages mindfulness and accountability.

Take a couple of moments before the New Year to think about new experiences that influenced you personally. Reflect on all the great things you have accomplished in the year 2015 and pull out the greatest lessons you have learned to bring into 2016.

What went well?  Who needs to be acknowledged?  What’s not working?  What do you need to let go of going forward?  What do you need to spend time on to see better results?  How can you be much kinder to yourself in the coming year?  Who will you connect with more in the year ahead?  What kind of leader, peer, friend, partner (and other roles) do you want to be?  What do you want?  What is your word/phrase/question for 2016?

No matter what your lessons and reflections, I wish you a beautiful end to year 2015 and a gratitude-filled start to 2016.

To Your Success!

True Gratefulness Begins With Awareness

True Gratefulness Begins With Awareness

The world is full of pain and suffering, hardship and turmoil, disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful and mean it is, in its own way, a miracle.

All we have has been given to us regardless of what we have done to make ourselves and others think we deserve it.

We sometimes take for granted things like food, water, safety and security, roof over our heads, good health, family, education, employment, etc.

As we approach the end of the year, it is prudent to take some time to do an inventory of all the good things in our lives.  Which one are we grateful for? 
Did we earn it?  Who gave us the ability or skills to earn it?

I am thankful for Grace — for love that cannot be explained (only surrendered to), for a Creator that inspires creativity, for purpose and a hope that there is more to the story than we see.

Listen to “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”

Hope for Tomorrow


God is in control of each storm. Let the storm take you where God wants you to go. He wants the best for us. He has a perfect plan for our lives.

What need are you up against, wondering how it is going to be met?

Take a few minutes today to quietly and deeply think about your life. Is God providing you with the necessary “tools” to go in the direction you are taking? Or is God not providing? Remember, only where God guides, will God provide. Where He leads, He supplies all needs.

Obey Him. Believe Him. Trust Him.
What God starts, He finishes.

Why God Makes Us Wait

Why God Makes Us Wait

Perhaps you know the feeling of waiting for your phone to charge. Whether it’s waiting in line, waiting in traffic, waiting for food service, or waiting for marriage, and the fruit of the womb…?

Christianity is waiting (Psalm 40:1)
#increasedfaith #delayedgratification #WhenGodsaysYes #WhenGodsaysNo #WhenGodsaysLater

Waiting is a part of life and one of God’s tools for developing people.

Waiting reveals our true motives. It brings out the best and worst in people.

Waiting builds patience in our lives. If we can’t wait for God to do a small thing, we certainly can’t wait for something bigger.

Waiting has a way of rubbing off the rough edges of our lives in order to engrain permanent blessing. #gifts #lastinggoodness #sanctification

Waiting builds intimacy and dependency upon God.

I want it… I want all…I want it all now, right now!


Waiting is no waste in God’s economy.

God is just as interested in the journey as He is the destination. He knows what he is doing.

No matter how long it takes, when God works, it’s always worth the wait. Things will change. New exciting things will happen.

We must trust God even when his answer is ‘Wait’!

Watch God work in His ways.
Ask God about His purposes.
Invite God to work in your heart.
Trust God to fulfill His plans.

Your Choices Determine Your Destiny

If you are over 40 years old, you can see that some of the choices you made as a young person determined the course of your life.

Destiny is all about the choices we make and the chances we take.

Everyone has their own destiny. Not everyone makes the choice to pursue it.

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it’s a matter of choice. It’s not a thing to be waited for, it’s a thing to be achieved.

Life is all about choices. Good or bad; right or wrong; your destiny will unfold according to the CHOICES you make.

You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

Making a big change in life is pretty scary, but regret is even scarier.

If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.

Right now, everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, make a different choice.

When you make a choice, you change the future.

The choice is yours…

Keep Your Vision Alive

Keep Your Vision Alive

You need to know where you’re going if you are going to succeed.  You need to have a clear vision of the path ahead and a clear picture of the journey’s end.
You need a vision.

All great leaders – managers, movie stars, entrepreneurs – talk about the certainty with which they could see the final outcome of the path they embarked on.

The long walk starts with a single step, and a clear vision of that destination.

Think of a goal that you have at present. Now double that goal. Visualise what has to happen to achieve this goal. 

We go where our vision is.
