Potentiality, Actuality, And The Hard Work Of Creating Reality

potentiality actuality potential energy work creativity reality leadership blog graphic

I remember being extremely fascinated by the concept of “potential energy” in school. My earliest memories of the concept are from sometime around junior high, maybe eighth grade, on the second floor, end of the hallway in the big science room. If you think about that, this is saying something because, seriously, how often can you recall when and where you first pondered scientific concepts?

“Taking The Lid Off” And Recounting My Season Of Rejection

It is okay to blog about yourself, unless you want people to read it. And yet, a blog in which one doesn’t talk about himself will not be much for reading either. Facts are fine and all, but stories are what we care about. With my last post, which was basically one giant allusion to this post, I had hoped to feel a sense of “freedom” from writing it, and I even thought I did for about a day after …

On “Getting Back In The Ring”, And Not

There are many ways to win a fight. Everyone has their own strengths and strategies. Sometimes your best bet is to out-muscle your opponent. Sometimes it’s to out-think or out-maneuver. Yet there are other fights in life that we, metaphorically or not, must simply take a beating while we wear the other person down or psych them out with our tenacity. Many fights are decided by the highest pain tolerance, not the skills or strength. Still even the best in every way have moments, …

How Are You? Besides “Busy” – A Bad Self Worth

Lately I’ve thought a lot about business and busyness. Why? Because I run businesses, I help businesses, I’m passionate about business, and it keeps me super busy! Also, and more so why it’s been on my mind, I’ve realized how often everyone says, “Oh ya know, I’m just really busy.” in response to, “Hey how are you!?” This can’t be good – but not for the reasons you may be thinking.

Why Waiting For A Sign For Marriage Might Be Dumb

As leaders and ministers trying to train and teach well, or even as students trying to grow up, think well, and live well, one of the biggest decisions of our lives is one that we get very little help with whether we’re making it or guiding others. Even the church does a really poor job of teaching about this subject. Because of this, and our own silly selves, I think we way over complicate this one question.

C. S. Lewis (The Four Loves) On Experiencing The Love Of Friendship – [Quote]

In each of my friends there is something that only some other friend can fully bring out. By myself I am not large enough to call the whole man into activity; I want other lights than my own to show all his facets. Now that Charles is dead, I shall never again see Ronald’s reaction to a specifically Caroline joke. Far from having more of Ronald, having him ‘to myself’ now that Charles is away, I have less of Ronald. Hence true Friendship is the least jealous of loves. Two friends delight to be joined by a third, and three by a fourth, if only the newcomer is qualified to become a real friend. They can then say, as the blessed souls say in Dante, “Here comes one who will augment our loves.” …For in this [friendship] love “to divide is not to take away.”
