I know what you’re thinking: “It’s not fair to compare an airport to a retail store. Airport security is a matter of life and death.” That’s a reasonable observation.
Leadership is leadership, no matter what the arena. You don’t have to be perfect, to be excellent.
I learned a lot from Mama but, without question, one of the best lessons she taught me was to be still and quiet.
To say that someone has succeeded solely because of some immutable quality, like race, is insensitive and degrading. And that’s no different for white people than for anyone else.
It is fortunate for me that I was birthed and raised in the South, a place of magical, moonlit and sun-kissed areas where the landscape is the melody and the people are the harmony in our stories.
We shouldn’t try to tamp down emotions at work; we should capitalize on them.
A speaking engagement in the Chattanooga area landed us within a few minutes of Chickamauga, the site of one of the Civil War’s bloodiest battles, so I insisted that we take a side trip to the historic battlefield.
When it comes to work, there are two stories you can tell yourself. You can tell a money story, or you can tell a meaning story. Which one would you rather have in your head everyday?
The word on the left-wing blogosphere is that recent videos showing Planned Parenthood employees talking about selling “fetal tissue” and other horrors are “fake” or “doctored” or “selectively edited,” taking people’s statements “out of context.”
The moral of this story is simple: There are people and churches in need of kindness and generosity. We can each be a blessing in meaningful ways. Just look around.
My Dad was all in. He was all in for his family, his job, his friends, and everything else that mattered. I aspire to do the same. How about you?
The left loves to lecture the rest of us about being “on the wrong side of history,” as if history were some sort of choreographed march toward a fixed point, and not merely a record of what fallible, illogical, and unpredictable human beings have actually said and done.
No one, regardless of how old we are, likes to be an orphan. It feels oddly like a ship that has been securely moored in a harbor but then is set free to drift without anchor.
It’s not that conservatives never try to suppress speech. But the left has invented a right not to be offended and developed outrage into an art form.
Watching some movies set in Georgia, you’d think a screen writer has never visited the South.
