Spring Forward

The past couple of months have been that of new beginnings as spring is in the air. I have continued writing and am 90% complete on our newest book Leadership by LIGHT, Principles that Empower.  This work has been a great challenge and I believe will emerge as a game changer for anyone interested in  becoming more than they are and more than they hoped they could be.  It should be available for purchase in late May of this year.

I promised to share a video about our Launching Leaders Worldwide project in this blog.   This video is an introduction to our course, which is a 12 week on-line experience complete with facilitation and world class mentors.  The complete series of offerings should be available in mid-summer.  Stay tuned.

As we enter this spring time and newness of life; it’s calving season on the Farm. Here is one of the latest farm creations:

This is a great time of the year to ponder our path. Are we just putting in time or are we making a difference?

I recently watched a movie with Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway called The Intern. He is a 70 year-old widower, retired, and searching for meaningful ways to spend his time.  Without giving away the plot, Ben Whitaker (Robert De Niro) decides to shake up his life when he becomes an intern for a startup web company (on-line clothing).   He is assigned to be the owner’s (Anne Hathaway) personal intern.  What struck me was that it is NEVER too late to make a difference.  What this requires however is that we leave our zones of comfort and DECIDE to make a difference.  It’s a part of recognizing our true identity.

I was in this mind set when I decided one of my grandsons needed a lunch date (actually, it was grandpa who needed a lunch date—and my grandchildren never turn me down):

Happy Spring everyone.
