Is what you do important?

By Jim Whitt I was on a conference call as part of my preparation for speaking at a staff development meeting for a trade association. The CEO and a couple of senior staff members were on the other end of the line. My parting question was, “What’s the most important thing you want your people to take away from my presentation?” The CEO didn’t hesitate, “I want each of them to believe that what they do is important.” To drive that point home in my presentation, I decided to share this story about my friend Kent Stroman. Kent grew up… Read More

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

What if we gave thanks for eveything we have?

  By Sondra Whitt In a workshop I facilitated recently, one participant was struggling to keep a positive attitude at work while she was surrounded by overwhelming negativity. While there were several helpful suggestions offered by different participants, she finally came to the conclusion that her best solution was to deliberately practice positive self-talk. She realized that she had no control over the situation — only over herself, her attitude and perspective. If she could change the way she saw the people and situation, she could change her attitude, outlook, be less stressed, happier and more productive. She concluded that… Read More

Too good to be great?

This is a favorite of Angie Youngblut, one of our longtime subscribers. It was originally published August 9, 2006. I think it’s a great message to share again in our first issue for 2014. If any of you have favorites you think are worth sharing again please let me know. Thanks Angie! By Jim Whitt Whenever I’m speaking I’ll ask the audience, “How many of you want to reach your full potential?” Every hand goes up. Now, I believe they mean it. They really want to. But I also know that when most of them walk out of the room they will… Read More

A prison of your own making

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: I was in a restaurant on Fisherman’s Wharf overlooking San Francisco Bay. A radiant sunset framed a silhouette of the Golden Gate Bridge to my left and to my right I could see Alcatraz, the former island prison which once housed such infamous criminals as Al Capone and Machine Gun Kelly. How ironic. Here were two famous landmarks that symbolized both freedom and captivity. The Golden Gate Strait through which so many freedom-seeking immigrants had passed, leads… Read More

The strangest secret: What you see is what you get

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: Comedian Flip Wilson was at his absolute best when he put on a wig, miniskirt and go-go boots to play the part of Geraldine Jones. Geraldine’s most famous line was delivered with this flirtatious boast, “What you see is what you get!” And Geraldine was right in a way she, or he if you prefer, never intended. We naturally gravitate to what we see — and what we see is what we get. This is what Earl… Read More

The science of Axiology: How do you see yourself?

By Jim Whitt This is an excerpt from Chapter 6  of The Transformational Power of Purpose: Finding & Fulfilling Your Purpose in Life: Having personally witnessed the inhumanity accompanying Hitler’s rise to power in pre-war Germany, Dr. Robert S. Hartman envisioned a science which could organize good as effectively as the Nazis organized evil. After years of research, Hartman created a new mathematical system called Axiology which successfully orders the values of our everyday experiences. Derived from two Greek words — xios (worth or value) and logos (logic or theory) — Axiology examines “how we think” and helps us to… Read More
