Simple Is Hard

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2010.

We all dream don’t we?  When does dreaming big ever get old?

Big goals and big dreams are a daily thought process for me.  

Big goals require a ton of work, which is why some big dreams have eluded me all my life.

What are your big dreams this year?

Do you have the indomitable will to do the things you’ve never done before?

Ever think about what it must have been like for our forefathers to tame this land we call America, or any land for that matter?

To tame it.

To make it work for them instead of being an overwhelming obstacle.

My big dream is to help others find their indomitable will.  Have been working very hard at this for a long time.

Have you ever worked really hard at something, for a really long time, and started to think that it’s wasn’t worth all the effort?

I thought so. And when I get frustrated, my thoughts automatically turn to the hardships, and indomitable will of our forefathers:

  1. Jeff. Your website is awesome. Sorry it took me so long to discover it. I too am at the “Rethink, Reprioritize, Recommit point of my (51) life. Outside of my job with Air Products (Home office in Allentown Pennsylvania “Whoo hoo”) I am trying to follow the 3R’s by starting a “Twenty-Something” Bible study in our home that I hope will develop into an Adult Bible Study Class at our church. Last year I also started a Men’s Prayer group on Monday evenings that is currently averaging about ten men each week. I would be interested in any motivational suggestions you could make on how to get people interested in participating in either of these groups. Also, what is your fitness regimen? You look great !

  2. Brian, your comments are inspiring. You are doing good work at your Church. Men need to pray more. Twenty-somethings need to pray more. we all need to pray more.

    For any readers who don’t pray, please know that my comments are not meant in any way whatsoever, to pass judgement.

    I also run, a lot, and my writing at should not offend swimmers, walker, cyclists, or sedentary people any more than these comments here. Everybody with me?

    Good. Carpe diem.

    PS. Brian, like I said in the email, I’ll be in touch. Have a million motivational ideas. 🙂

  3. Looking forward to hearing from you Jeff and glad to hear things are going so well for you and your family. We are both blessed.
