Authenticity and Cheese

April 26, 2018

I love the realness of the younger generations; it is refreshing to see the unfiltered ways of a generation that values being their true-selves over the opinions of others.  This is often referred to as authenticity. Oscar Wilde is quoted as saying “Be yourself.  Everyone else is already taken.”  However, just being yourself is not … Continue reading Authenticity and Cheese

Passover, Moses, Baseball and Launching Leaders

Guest Post By Rabbi John Crites-Borak Launching Leaders Worldwide Advisory Council We Jews focus on freedom during Passover.

Head of the Spring

April 2, 2018

I grew up in a log cabin, remodeled over the years. It started out being a one room cabin with a dirt floor and an outhouse. Then came indoor plumbing and additions to include a modern bathroom (modern compared to the outhouse at least). My parents bought this home for $1,000 when they got married. … Continue reading Head of the Spring

Here are some comments from a few who have recently seen the earth from this perspective: “Every … Continue reading Perspective: 3 Ways to Move Your Vision Forward

The Root of Values

February 15, 2018

Over the past few years I have had the honor of attending the worship services of many faiths – from various Christian groups to Muslim and Jewish groups, to groups that claim spirituality without a specified denominational affiliation. The sincerity and conviction of each group I’ve spent time with is authentic.  Clearly, all are believers—all … Continue reading The Root of Values

What About Kindness

December 15, 2017

As I spend time with the 20 and 30-somethings and the newer generations, I am truly mesmerized by their emboldened character traits.  I love these generations for so many things; their desire to make a difference, non-judgmental attitudes, nomad traits—going anywhere to find the tribe that can support their passions, and shaping their own fabrics … Continue reading What About Kindness

We know that in all phases of their lives, they desire to be a part … Continue reading Plan Without Doubt: 3 Ways to Move Forward
