Leadership: music, ministry, politics, technology and family
the tweaking never ends.. 4/17 but it is important to keep every version. This I know for certain.
Translating strategy to operational improvement, market position, and positive growth results does not just happen. You must embrace visionary leadership coupled with disciplined, excellence in execution. I can and will succeed in making it happen from the board room to the classroom, to the opera/concert stage.

Morality is not dead, but it is not anywhere to be found in government or the media. #LookAround #idiotseverywhere and some of them are actual criminals. and some have just been accused... and most are not worthy of an ounce of the attention they receive.
Such is the world which we make. #WeThePeople are responsible.
How you spend your time and money shows your priorities.
What do I do to manage? I try to turn off the "illusion of the world" and act in my world locally... in schools, churches, neighborhoods.. with friends and family...
I Choose to give in spite of what I know...
It is all that I can do. That is how things change. Every day is an opportunity.
Am I good enough? in my book? no.. tomorrow is another opportunity to do better.. and so on and so on.
My friend Lloyd Arriola passed away this weekend and I'm not able to deal with it yet. I've read the hundreds of glowing tributes and condolences online as I ponder this looming void in my future. Lloyd and I became friends through the Lasker Summer Music Festival and our close mutual relationship with Dr Charles Hulin IV. I remember first meeting him and thinking... wow... that guy is as passionate and powerful at the piano as an opera singer... That image still stands in my mind.
We argued often about politics as we held distinctly different world views about the role of governing powers in this crazy world of ours but whenever we actually talked face to face, mano a mano, we found so much more common ground than disagreement. His love of the SF Giants and even the 49ers drew respect from me as a long time Denver Broncos fan... I still maintain that baseball is just not that big a deal...
Lloyd, I can't help but think of the huge volume of guttural utterances you …
Last few weeks have generated a lot of self examination for me. I've been exploring my own life and living for a bible study I'll be teaching over the Summer on the Kingdom way of Life. I'm already a little obsessive about a lot of things. (family and friends are LOLing right now...) Reality is... there are pros and cons to this tendency, blessing, gift... Think about that, as Ill come back to it in a bit.
Jesus teaches me that I need to live in grace, embracing every moment, not judging, understanding that I am a member of the body of Christ. Most importantly... I'm not the head. That is a tough one for me... (maybe for you too)
I am "good at" a lot of things.. listening... hearing... technology... music... performing.. parenting... coaching... competition, and yes collaboration.
I am "bad at" a lot of things... gentleness... crying... exercise... submission... silence... and yes sometimes collaboration.
