Try again… And again…

I haven’t failed, I just found 10.000 ways that won’t work – Thomas Alva Edson The beauty of this sentence is that it shows us that even the brightest people don’t always get it the feat time. If you haven’t tried it 10.000 times you still have an excuse to keep on trying. It will […]

Family beyond walls

I heard this phrase more than 15 years ago and it’s always stuck with me. Living in a different country for almost 10 years now, it’s clearer than ever what he meant. Here is the phrase:

Just because one moves away from the Family it doesn’t mean he is not Family anymore, it just means that they will have to work harder to keep together (Will Smith on Fresh prince of Bel-air during an episode where Jazz is jealous because he is going to college).

Booyah! That is philosophical! Jokes aside, all Fresh prince fans give it up right now c’mon! Ok. Back to business…

In countless circumstances you will be faced with the challenge of keeping close to those who matter most to you. All this technology was supposed to help us shorten the distance but the reality is that we become more and more anti-social through “social media”

Lately with the tragic news of the passing away of our brother Myles Munroe and family we are reminded that life is too short to waste and their example only exalts more how that great brother in Christ value family and those he loved as they were on a mission together.

As he said it himself and we have heard several times on the media: “the greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life without purpose”.

So, learn from Master William (as Geoffrey use to call him) and just work harder at it! Make the phone call, go for the night meal, stretch a little bit! You an do it!

Have a great family weekend!

Those who never make mistakes work for all of us who do – Henry Ford I’ve heard so many great expressions about making mistakes. Things like “fail forward”, recently I heard in a movie “those who make the biggest mistakes make the best teachers”. And Henry Ford puts it in a very practical way. You’re […]

Church and baseball

Baseball is like church: many attend, few understand – Leo Durocher former MLB manager Nothing could be closer to the truth specially in our so called post-modern days. We call it post modern with the idea that we are past modernity but it feels like we are going backwards. The church (in many cases) lost […]

The tough reality

Have a look at this drawing and tell me… Or better, tell yourself if you’ve never been in a position where you saw it but then it was just gone. We all hate to be in the position that is shockingly rare and not being able to do something about it. Oh well, here is […]
