Five Things I Want To Share With You Today...

#1) A great quote from Andy Stanley:  "The fear of dying will rob you of the joy of living."   What do you think about that?

#4) Here's an INSPIRATIONAL STORY from friends working in the Philippines.  CLICK HERE to read the full story.


#5) A classic book:  I was recently talking with someone about "personal productivity" and they asked me what book I would recommend. I mentioned that the all-time best-seller book by Stephen R. Covey, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" is a must-read for anyone trying to get control of their life. This person looked at me and had never heard of this book. I pushed it!  If you want to improve your personal productivity, read the book. If you haven't read the book in the past 5 years, read it again. It will challenge you, remind  you, convict you and give you practical tools that will help you be a "better you"! One of my favorite books, and one that I revisit often. CLICK HERE to purchase it, and you can find it in over 40 different languages, available around the world.
