One of my favorite life mantras has always been “Always be kinder than necessary. Everyone is fighting some sort of battle”.
In the Holy Bible Apostle Paul, through God’s wisdom and Spirit, has encouraged us to be kind to people.
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32
Today, I encourage and challenge you to be kind only to one person. We can be kind when having God in our life.
Genuine kindness is great!

Marietta, GA – Becoming great….
“Start where you are,
Use what you have,
Do what you can.”
– Arthur Ashe
Arthur Ashe was a fantastic tennis player who helped change the world with his talents and gifts. Even though Arthur retired in his early thirties, he became known for his determination to leave the world a better place. His speech at the United Nations was broadcast far and wide as a call to invest in AIDS research and inner city improvement.
Be encouraged that you can make a difference in someone’s life like Arthur did. You will never know how many people watch you in a personal and work context. You too can change the world by subtle contributions
#Be a Change for Good
PS. Today’s shout out goes to Scott Manness who encourages me every time we meet. Scott’s generosity will forever be remembered by my family. Thank you Scott for your friendship and encouragement.
Kennesaw, GA – Relationomics
“Facebook is everyone else’s highlight reel.”
– Dr. Randy Ross
Dr. Ross presented his latest book at a luncheon in Marietta, GA in 2020 and I was able to speak with him afterwards. Our relationships are found beyond our physical reach as Facebook has shown us. We watch others, others watch us. Developing strong bonds with a few good relationships can extend way beyond just “who you know” to include “who knows you”, and your reputation via relationships.
PS. Bryan Jostworth is more than a great brother in law. He’s also a terrific role model in being a great relationship builder. I have quietly watched his integrity over thirty years and can say with certainty that we are known by our relationships and not by words alone.
