Rule 11: No cutting through parking spaces

leave a comment »

This rule is pretty simple and I have seen so many drivers do it.  In a parking lot, I can’t drive through parking spaces to get across the lot.  I have to drive in the designated driving lanes and not across parking spots.

This rule is more, it is just dangerous because people don’t pay attention and you never know what may happen if you cut across the lot.

Rule 10: Communist countries are off-limits to travel

leave a comment »

I would like to travel to China, walk the Great Wall of China or go see the pandas or the Terracotta Army.  But I have a rule of not travel to countries whose government is communism.  Maybe it is after watching Locked Up Abroad but I worry about doing something that might be considered a crime in a country whose legal system is questionable.

A while back there was this American kid in Singapore who got in trouble for chewing gum.  It is not like I am going to travel to communist countries to commit crimes but I would rather not go to jail for something that might be considered a non-issue back home.

Better safe than sorry because I am too pretty for jail.

Day 14: Be a Good Steward of Opportunities

leave a comment »

It has been a while since my last post, not because my journey has ended but quite the opposite.  My journey with God has grown immensely.  I am so blessed by His grace.

There is a recurring theme since I took my leap of faith and changed employers some months back, a friend recently asked if I regret leaving a large corporation to go to a small local start-up.  There is no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision and no hesitation to provide an answer and an update.

Where I am today would not be possible if I hadn’t taken care of past opportunities.  From what I can gather, it all started 2 employers ago.  I had just been placed on a new client project who 4 years later would be the large corporation whom I would leave in a leap of faith moment.  That initial project would lead me down a road of incredible opportunities and making some amazing connections.

Most of the opportunities presented to me I like to think I acted correctly.  I worked hard and was kind to those around me most of the time.  I do realize at times I was not the most pleasant person to be around, I accept that fault and has promised to not repeat the mistakes as I have been given a second chance.  Other times it was the result of the environment which lead to some lapse in judgement.

In looking back, I was presented one opportunity at a time and each opportunity I tried to be a good steward.  One after another, person after person and here I am.

Every day I look at each opportunity in a different light, even if it is one I would not normally review I keep an open mind and look at it as a stepping stone.  God brought it in front of  me for a reason and I just hope I don’t screw it up and ruin my chances of the current leading to a future opportunity.
