Are You Prepared for the Worst?

We Must Stop Getting Upset with Others

  Too many?leaders are shackled by this menace: constantly getting upset with others. I’ve been there myself. There was a season of my leadership when?I would stay?angry and upset.

Train and Measure; Don’t Find and Punish

I visited a well-liked and very busy restaurant in Fort Worth yesterday. It?s the kind of place where you order your food up front, and then someone brings it to your table for you.
