You Are a Rottweiler Puppy

Powerful, smart, and protective.
You're eager to growl at anyone you hate - but you're a big sweetheart inside.

You are kind, popular, and generous.
You tend to be successful at anything you try.
A social butterfly, you are great at entertaining a crowd.

Journey To Greatness

There are many topics that stand out to me when reading books. Most of what authors discussed I have read before in other books, but it is always good to revisit many of the areas discussed in some reading.

One topic that always stands out to me is greatness. To me greatness is about setting goals and ones own understanding of greatness. One has to take a moment “to identify a particular expression of greatness that matters to you.” I taken more than a moment and reflected on thismy own request. I believe hat in identifying your definition of greatness you can identify your goals.

“To identify any potential fear or obstacle that might be challenging you in going forward on this journey to greatness.” Benshea

This was easy for me, I have always known my greatest fear, yet I always seem to get around confronting that fear. We must all confront our fears, and running from or ignoring them is useless. Benshea goes on to write about my biggest fear and does a good job of summing it up, he states that in being “afraid to make the wrong decision, we make no decision and assure failure out of fear of making a mistake”. I cannot let my fears hold me back, and when faced with my fears, I must have enough courage and faith to move past them.

Homecoming Weekend

Homecoming weekend has come and gone for ACU, but the memories are still there. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I had a great time this weekend. It is always a very tiring weekend just because you start early Saturday morning and keep going unit the wee hours of Saturday night. One of the highlights this year was the area, place, (not use what you call it) known as “Jacobs Dream”. It consists of large stones with scriptures written into the stone, and in the middle a large sculpture that represents Jacobs’s dream of Angels ascending and descending from Heaven. To say the least it was very impressive (to me), and adds a lot to the ACU campus.

The Guardian

I took my wonderful wife Heather on a date last night and we went to the Studio Movie Grill and watched The Guardian. We had a good time and the movie was pretty good as well. I do recommend seeing it. The place was packed and just a little bit of advice, if you go to see a movie at Studio Movie Grill get there early. There were some that got there right when the movie started and could not find a seat. Any who, it was a good start to a good weekend and I finally was able to get a hair cut.

Well, I was in the office all day to day for my internship. This is the second day, this year, that I have been able to go up and work all day in the office. The first day is good day not many kids to deal with not much going on. Today on the other hand was crazy. Not sure what was in the water today, but the kids were going nuts. It was a very good experience to me to see a crazy day in the office. And yes I still want to go into administration.

Weekend & Fair Day

Heather and I really enjoyed our weekend with family. Oh, and Heather is feeling much better now. My parents are good, dad (knee surgery) is feeling better, but he hates having to sit in one place all day. Mom is running around waiting on him and watching the twins most of the time. The grandparents are good, still talking and going. The parent-in-laws bought a new Honda Odyssey; it has lots of buttons so that’s fun. Heather is at work today and I am at home, oh the greatness of “Fair-Day”, with a ling to-do list. Well I had better get started.
