Fig Leaves & Failure. Gold Medals & a Garden.

Gold Medals and a Garden A few weeks ago I attended a one-day leadership conference led by Craig Groschel and Andy Stanley – two mega-church pastors from the US. At one point, Stanley made this statement: “When you look at success from a birds-eye view, it’s easy to assume one or two great decisions paved the […]

It was all about the bling in 2008 on Andy Bondurant

Success or Rewards?

I’m currently heading to, in or on my way back from Bolivia. The internet access (along with my time) is a little more sketchy there than here in the States. So I’m re-posting a few of mine and your favorite posts from the last year or so. Enjoy! All about the bling-da-bling-da-bling In early 2008, […]

Andy Bondurant's new Big Hairy Audacious Goal

Bigger and Bolder

Vision My 2014 Word of the Year is VISION. I want a clear picture of what I see and God sees for my life. Part of the reason I chose that word was I wanted to dream bigger and bolder. To this point, it’s been more systematic thinking about what it means to have vision […]

Strength Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath on building strengths not weaknesses

It’s all about the WHAT dummy.

2014 Word of the Year My Word of the Year is VISION. With that in mind, I read a book by Andy Stanley called Visioneering in January. Interestingly, I purchased this book for Kia over a year ago. I happened to throw it in my bag packing for a vacation. I only took it out […]

Different vs Difference

Andy Bondurant in the Desert of Joshua Tree National Forest

How to escape the desert.

The Vision and the Desert. Earlier this week, I posted about how the size of your vision is many times equitable to the length of you stay in the desert (thank you Andy Stanley). I also shared 3 ways to survive the desert: Don’t give up. Die tryin’. Find a companion (or two). I thought […]

The Vision and the Desert

Vision: Word of the Year 2014. Last week, I shared my 2014 Word of the Year. I was so excited when it came to me. It was the exact thing I had been attempting to put into a single word for weeks. VISION. I want to have a clear and distinct VISION for my family, […]

I'm doing a great work shirt by Andy Bondurant

Sorry. I’m doing a GREAT work.

Screen Printing I mentioned in one of my last posts, I received a screen printing kit for Christmas. I’m enjoying the learning process, and I’m enjoying the final products. It is so much fun. I’m in love. One of my first successes has been this shirt… I love the design, but more importantly, I love the meaning […]

You are more productive than you think.

The 7 Year Itch. Last night, I couldn’t sleep. I began a long conversation with myself when this happens, and for some odd reason I listed all the major life milestones passed in one 7 year stretch. I started with the year I turned 18: Graduated from high school (1992 at age 18) Kia and […]
