Rumor has it that parents can make rules. That they can make a difference. In fact, that’s their job. But that’s not the way we think.

Knowing When to Care

One of the more important personal disciplines as a leader is to be able to know what you don’t care about. Or more to the point, what you shouldn’t care about.

The Year (Really) in Review

This is the time to recap the year that was. But how do you really get a twelve-month snapshot of a culture’s zeitgeist? I would argue for two words: “Google searches.”

The Real Christmas Carol (2013)

Most people have seen one or more versions of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. But when I first read the novel itself, after viewing various editions of the movie, I was shocked. Scrooge was not the buffoonish, almost cartoon-like character some of the movies made him out to be. He was genuinely evil.

Generation X-Mas (2013)

An intriguing editorial in TIME magazine chronicled how "A Christmas Story" has become the quintessential American film for Christmas, replacing "It’s a Wonderful Life."

A Great Man

During my time in Johannesburg, I went to the Apartheid museum. Housed in the museum is a replica of Cell Block B that for eightteen years housed a man by the name of Nelson Mandela.

Praying Kingdom Come

It’s a simple idea, and a deeply biblical one, woven into the very fabric of the prayer Jesus taught us to pray. “Thy kingdom come.”

A Very "Selfie" World

By now you may have heard that Oxford Dictionary’s word of the year is “selfie.” It’s good word for our day, as without a doubt, it has become a very “selfie” world.

Strategic Strategy
