Contents: pt. 1 Lesson about life: --
The most effective things in life are usually simple --
Patience is sometimes over-rated --
If everybody loves you, you're probably not doing anything worthwhile --
If you don't believe in yourself, you cannot expect others to believe in you, either --
It's important to have fun on the job; it prevents burnout and ruptured relationships-both of which are likely as the pressure mounts --
Experts usually aren't --
Pick your fights --
It's true; you really can't believe everything you read --
Every trial brings with it a lesson. Learn the lesson quickly and so minimize your chances of having to re-live the trial on another day --
The best reason to study history may simply be to grasp the big picture. Only then can you understand just how insignificant, in the long-run, today's crises really are --
Anyone who accomplishes more than average must not have children living in their home --
True innovators are a rare breed; clever impersonators of innovators are a dime a dozen --
There are two ways to get ahead in life: work hard or schmooze hard --
New York and Los Angelos are worlds apart. pt. 3 People: --
Americans are world-class amnesiacs. We aren't so much forgiving as we are forgetful --
Americans are bombarded by increasing amounts of information, but are less well-informed about their world than ever --
You only do a truly great job at those things you have been built to do --
You''re either a thinker or a feeler --
Everyone loves a gift --
pt. 4 Leadership: --
It's much easier to lead without vision, but it's virtually imposible to be successful for fulfilled that way --
If you want to get something done, give it to the busiest person --
but only if you're not in a hurry --
Public opinion is usually soft. A real leader can shape it however he or she wants --
Bad outcomes are often attributable to bogus assumptions --
Arriving at a solution to most problems requires attention, not brilliance --
The most powerful vacuum sucking time out of a leader's day is known as "meeting" --
Focus on the bad news --
Commitees and task forces are usually a cover-up for weak leadership --
A great leader is an individual who accomplishes his or her own agenda without alienating those whose agendas were superseded --
Leadersm do their homework. If you want it done right, do it yourself. If you want to maximize your impact, delegate the task --
Making it on your own is satisfying. Experiencing that success with a true partner, though, is fulfilling --
pt. 5 Religion and church life: --
Hindsight, as a tool for recongnizind and comprehending God's grace, power and purposes, is under-rated --
Maybe more people would read the bible if they didn't already know "whodunnit" --
Most churches do not grow numerically because they do not want to grow numerically --
Some christians are more interested in "serving" in ways that are personally confortable than in doing whatever it takes to build God's kingdom --
Failure repeats itself if you let it --
Too many churches treasure order more than impact --
Quantity is much more appealing than quality --
Citing 'lack of funds' is a common smokescreen that hides the real problems of a ministry --
We use a secret language that communicates cleary.
