What Star Wars can teach us about planning for the future

By Jim Whitt “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” That now iconic opening scroll was inspired by Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers, movie serials originally produced during the 1930s and 40s. That was before my time but I watched them when they were rerun on television. So did George Lucas — and watching those serials provided much of the inspiration for creating Star Wars. “Star Wars is built on top of many things that came before,” said Lucas. “This film is a compilation of all those dreams, using them as a history to create a new… 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 2016. We called him “Doc” – Doc Lunsford. I never knew how he came by the nickname… Read More

Christmas is all about change, leadership and purpose

  By Jim Whitt Sometimes it’s strange where you find inspiration. My friend Monty Teeter asked me to speak at his company’s Christmas party. I was struggling with what I was going to say when I stumbled onto a quote from a book on project management I was reading. That quote made me think about the birth of Jesus so I’ll start with this passage from the Bible: “After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, ‘Where can we find and pay… Read More

A tribute to a purpose-driven life

By Jim Whitt Years ago my friend Becky Teeter shared a book with me written by Joyce Landorf entitled Balcony People. The author uses a metaphor comparing life to a glass sphere, much like a fish bowl. In the bottom two thirds of the sphere is dark, murky water. In the top third is clean, fresh air. The basement people reside in the murk and the mire. They not only are on a dead end street but they insist on trying to pull others down with them. On the other hand, the balcony people live in the clean, fresh air… Read More

So, You Want to Be a Guitar Hero?

This post is dedicated to my friend Nancy Baumunk who celebrates a birthday this week. By Jim Whitt I am not a guitar hero but I’ve played Guitar Hero. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Wikipedia describes Guitar Hero as a series of music video games “in which players use a guitar-shaped peripheral to simulate the playing of lead, bass guitar and rhythm guitar across numerous rock music songs. Players match notes that scroll on-screen to colored fret buttons on the controller, strumming the controller in time to the music in order to score points, and keep the… Read More

What we have here is failure to communicate

By Jim Whitt I looked up communication in a dictionary and found these definitions: • To convey information about; make known; impart. • To reveal clearly; manifest. • To have an interchange, as of ideas. • To express oneself in such a way that one is readily and clearly understood. I then asked myself a question (an internal interchange): In this wondrous world of high technology how good a job are we doing of communicating? This is how I answered myself… Let’s start with email. It’s easy to write. It’s easy to send. It’s easy to respond to. It’s easy… Read More

The one fear all successful people learn to overcome

By Jim Whitt An up-and-coming band was playing bars throughout the south in the 1970s when a Macon, Georgia record producer decided they were good enough for the big time. He recorded a dozen of their songs and headed to L.A. to pitch the band to the big boys of the music business only to find no takers. They said one song was particularly hurtful to their chances. It was too long and would never get airtime on the radio. But somebody did give it playtime and it ended up selling a gazillion copies. The song was Free Bird. The… Read More

Want to be more successful? Go fishing…

By Jim Whitt Fishing brings to mind Rockwellian visions of barefoot boys lounging lazily on a creek bank with cane poles, a can of worms and not a care in the world. Fishing in the 21st century wouldn’t fit in a Norman Rockwell frame, however. Fishing has become big business. Billions of dollars are spent on high powered boats and high tech equipment. But all that technology will not make you a great fisherman. If you learn the secret to successful fishing you will also learn how to be more successful in life. In an issue of Dakota Country magazine,… Read More

Your answer to this question will help determine your success in life and business

By Jim Whitt I walked into an optometry shop looking for a new pair of glasses. I spotted someone who I thought was an employee sitting at a desk. She looked up at me but didn’t say anything so I thought she must be a customer waiting to be helped. I looked at the displays and tried on frames for about 15 minutes when the woman at the desk finally asked, “May I help you?” I thought the fact that I had tried on frames for a quarter of an hour might have been a clue but I held my… Read More
