The Perfect Place

By Jim Whitt There’s a story of a man who wished for a world where people wouldn’t have to struggle. It was unfair, he believed, that for all the progress humanity had made throughout history that so much of the world’s population still struggled just to survive. He roamed the world searching for the solution and while traveling in the Middle East encountered a beggar in the streets. He was not an ordinary beggar, however. He knew what the traveler was searching for — the perfect place. The man followed the beggar who led him through darkened streets to an… Read More

Giving what is most difficult to give: What Doc Lunsford taught me about Christmas

By Jim Whitt The following story about Doc Lunsford was published on December 23, 1991. It remains one of my favorites. So much so that I decided to make it a tradition and share it with our subscribers each Christmas. At a time when Christmas seems to have lost much of its meaning in our hectic lives, it is my sincere desire that this story about Doc would remind us of what we are truly celebrating. Have a Merry Christmas and a Purposeful 2018. We called him “Doc” – Doc Lunsford. I never knew how he came by the nickname… Read More

A lesson in race relations

By Jim Whitt There was one summertime activity that dominated all others growing up in my little hometown of Shidler, Oklahoma — baseball. And no one loved baseball more than my father. It would be hard to count the boys who grew up playing on teams he coached. The first league he coached in that I can remember consisted of two teams — the Mules and the Frogs. As I recall, my brother Marc played for the Mules. A few years later Dad coached the town team Marc played for and I was the batboy. The team won their league… Read More

The future is a foreign country

By Jim Whitt There’s a monument in Liberal, Kan. that reminds me of how different the world looked like 30 years ago. It’s easy to miss because it lies flat on the ground like a stone marking a grave in a cemetery. And in a sense, that’s what it is. It’s a concrete slab upon which once stood a Purina feed mill. I used to ship feed out of that plant when I was in sales with Purina. When I left the company in 1987 that mill was running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It was idle… Read More

A Memorial Day Tribute

By Jim Whitt As this was our first trip to France we suffered from a perpetual state of directional disability. And that is how we met Michel. We wandered through the gate of a small cemetery not a stone’s throw from Omaha Beach in Normandy.  Michel did not speak much English but fortunately, Suedy, a friend of ours from the U.S. spoke a little French. So, with much hand signaling, exaggerated facial expressions and a few exchanges of French and English we were able to communicate. It turned out to be a most fascinating conversation. Michel explained to us that… Read More

What do you think of when you hear the word “politician?”

By Jim Whitt I conducted an experiment on Facebook posting this question: “I’m doing research for an article I’m writing and need some help. What do you think of when you hear the word ‘politician?’” Kenny Rogers replied, “That’s kind of like asking 20 different people what their interpretation of the old psychological ink blots is. You will get 20 different answers.” In fact, I got a lot more. You can check them out and even add your response to my post on Facebook. Some were positive such as: “Needed. Respect those that serve and do a good job.” Others… Read More

Six magic words: What can I do to help?

By Jim Whitt I was on a packed flight on small jet flying from Garden City, Kansas to Dallas. The flight attendant was frantically trying to cover all the bases required to get the plane off the ground. In the bulkhead seat two rows in front of me was an elderly woman who insisted on keeping her bag on the floor which of course was against regulations. There is only one flight attendant on these small jets and this attendant was losing her cool. The elderly woman spoke no English and the frustrated attendant kept raising her voice telling the… Read More

Two words to help you win in life and business

By Jim Whitt Golf looks like an easy game when you watch the pros on television. The problem starts when you go to the golf course and discover you’re not a pro. Rory McIlroy shared two words with the television audience after he won the British Open that all of us can use to help us in golf, life and business. The two words are spot and process. I’m paraphrasing but McIlroy said that he focused on his process and not the results. This is exactly the opposite of what most of us have been taught. We have been conditioned… Read More

It’s time to declare our independence…again

By Jim Whitt This was orginally published two years ago 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 $17.6 trillion. 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 by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that… Read More
