Lessons on change from Pope Francis & Seth Godin

By Jim Whitt I’m not Catholic but I “liked” the pope on Facebook after reading an article entitled Pope Francis urges Catholics to shake up dioceses. “Francis was elected pope on a mandate to reform the church,” according to the article, “and in four short months he has started doing just that: He has broken long-held Vatican rules on everything from where he lays his head at night to how saints are made. Here’s a little of what he had to say in Rio de Janeiro on World Youth Day: “I want a mess. We knew that in Rio there… Read More

Leadership lessons from a cowboy named Rooster and a horse named Clyde

By Jim Whitt When I hired on as a pen rider at Wheatheart Feeders in 1972 there were roughly 20 cowboys and 60 company horses. The longest tenured hands got the pick of the best horses leaving the newest cowboys — forgive the pun — saddled with the worst. Wheatheart had a good-looking buckskin that had a reputation for bucking. Since the seasoned cowboys preferred function over form the buckskin ended up being ridden by one of the newer hands who were more enamored with the horse’s color and conformation. The buckskin ended up as a mount for a new… Read More

Are you a diamond in the rough?

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: He was right. They were there. You couldn’t see them with the naked eye but magnified ten times you could see them — tiny flaws. I was examining a diamond under a loop — the small magnifying glass that jewelers use to examine gems. Looking at the ring from the counter, you would never know the diamonds were anything but perfect. The jeweler explained how the Gemological Institute of America grades diamonds. In addition to a scale… Read More

Defining success: Malcolm Forbes, Madonna, Al Franken & Dana Carvey

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: In our reward and punishment culture, success is most often defined by achievement, competence and recognition — the esteem needs on Maslow’s hierarchy. With that as the standard, you are deemed successful by how much money you make, how smart you are, how beautiful you may be or how famous you become. It’s a culture where celebrity rules. It’s a recipe for an emotional breakdown because trying to succeed by those standards will leave most of us feeling… Read More

California Political Review features “It’s time to declare our independence again” as the Top Story for Independence Day edition

I’m honored that the California Political Review thought enough of my editorial, It’s time to declare our independence again, to feature it as their Top Story in today’s Independence Day edition. It was orignally published on my blog if you missed it.

It’s time to declare our independence…again

By Jim Whitt This was orginally published a year ago today but the message needs to be repeated until we “get it.” There is one number that needs to be updated in paragraph four. Our national debt is now nearing $17 trillion, a $1 trillion increase in one year. If you want to know what led to the creation of the United States of America you have to read the Declaration of Independence. The defining statement of this document would have to be: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed… Read More
