The Problem With Surrounding Yourself With Smart People

I grew up in the South and spent my early years watching buddies hang out their entire lives. Usually these buddies were picked because they wouldn’t challenge each other, push each other, or inspire each other. You probably know some people like this. They’re buddies that do nothing but “hang out.”

So I decided early on that I wanted to do the opposite – to surround myself with smarter, more talented, and more driven people than me. And for most of my life, my friends have done some amazing things. They produce movies, write successful books, run big companies, perform on Broadway, and make a great name for themselves. I’m incredibly proud of them and learn from them everyday. And in the process, they’ve inspired me to keep working, push myself more, and accomplish more than I ever dreamed. FULL POST

What to do if You’ve Been in a Serious Motor Vehicle Accident

A car accident is a serious event that can cost the driver a lot of time and money. Car accidents usually result in damage to property and can even result in injury or death. Although car insurance can cover a portion of these costs, many times, you are left with additional costs and expenses that can be difficult to afford. This can include any medical bills down the road, loss of income due to medical treatment and replacing your car with a new one. Being prepared for an accident and the subsequent aftermath can help you decrease your chances of paying out of pocket expenses.

Because car accidents are sudden and unexpected, it can be difficult to know what to do when you’ve been in a serious accident. Many times, your body is in shock. This can prevent you from responding to the accident properly and can even mask injuries inflicted during the accident. If possible, familiarize yourself with the necessary steps to take after an accident. If necessary, contact your lawyer and get advice on the next steps to take.

The History Of The Honda Accord

Over the years the Honda Accord has become more modernized and luxurious, while maintaining an affordable buying price. Since its inception in the 1970s, there has been eight generations of the Honda Accord.

The Body

Initially, the Honda Accord was a three-door hatchback with a four-cylinder engine. The Accord was transformed in later models, becoming first a two-door coupe and later a four-door sedan. Over the years, the Honda Accord developed a more “sporty” exterior, making it a popular vehicle for all different types of age groups. New and improved trim levels were also introduced, allowing Accord owners to personalize their vehicles to personal preference.


This first Honda Accord contained modern features of the time such as an AM/FM stereo and remote rear hatch release. In later generations, the Honda Accord maintained its reputation as a modern vehicle, adding such features as front and side airbags, more horsepower and low emissions tech. All of these added features have contributed to status of the Honda Accord as one of the most popular vehicles of the modern day.

Flying Charter Vs. Flying Commercial

Who hasn’t imagined of chartering a private jet and flying off to places such as Paris, Rome or London? Or maybe you have longed to indulge in boarding a charter plane with associates for convenient and easy last minute business travel. Whatever your dream scenario is, it may be more realistic than you think. In the past, traveling commercial has offered travelers a cheaper way to travel with little inconvenience. But with the increase of travel costs and the hassle of flying commercial, wouldn’t it be great to fly private? Yes, the cost of chartering a private jet is indeed a bit more costly, but the perks are plentiful. Imagine having the ability to book travel on your terms, and think of the privacy and comfort of flying private. You have the luxury of sipping champagne and relaxing during your flight, instead of gulping down bitter coffee and listening to screaming children as you would if you were flying coach. No more lost luggage or waiting in lines. These perks are just the beginning of your dream scenario coming true.

People are More Valuable Than Technology

I was reading in 2 Kings 12:13-15: “The money brought into the temple was not spent for making silver basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, trumpets or any other articles of gold or silver for the temple of the Lord; it was paid to the workmen, who used it to repair the temple. They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty.” It’s interesting that the writer actually noted that the workman were important. Their skill had value that was worth paying before anything else was paid.

But in today’s churches, ministries, and nonprofits, leaders are happy to pay for technology and equipment first, and then pay employees just above the poverty line.

Listen to this carefully:  I’d rather have top quality people and below level equipment, than state of the art equipment and below level people. People drive creativity, innovation, and success. Bells and whistles are nice, but I’ve seen too many clients over the years who spent all their money on great equipment, but refused to pay qualified people to run it. FULL POST
