insider thoughts about Saving Moses

 I’ve been thinking about this year & the various achievements & shortcomings for Saving Moses – reflections.  There have been some really cool developments – we made some great initial contacts for nightcare in Asia, we got a SUPER deal on some baby formula in Angola (over 40 metric tons for free if we would pay $5k for the transportation, an obvious no-brainer), some amazing progress with our media abilities, we’ve made some great potential relationships for the future, along with many other things.  On the flip side, there have also been some disappointments – our India trip was frustrating & I found that one of the malnutrition clinics that we recently visited in Angola didn’t have any milk, due to some poor communication.

Truthfully, I always want everything with Saving Moses to be 100% positive, but my experiences this year are teaching me that this isn’t always going to be realistic.  Furthermore, I’m finding that even though I want Saving Moses to be MASSIVELY effective, I need to be patient as we grow & continue to keep taking steps along the journey that will continue to help us be increasingly effective.

predicting success

So I know alot of people do this already & it’s not unusual for me to be slow to figure things out, but I’ve been reading 1 chapter of Proverbs each day for the last few months & it’s been a very interesting experience.  The main take away, so far, is that I really appreciate the practical wisdom it presents in such short & pithy  insights – not too wordy 🙂
Here are a few more lessons I want to digest & integrate into my daily life:

  • routine:  what we do consistently on a daily basis can show not only our priorities, but also what we will be good at in 5, 10, 20 years, etc.  Habits predict the future
  • persistence:  quitting & failing are often as complementary as peanut butter & jelly or salt & pepper
  • wisdom:  there’s a difference between information & wisdom;  the pursuit of wisdom yields higher returns than the pursuit of information
What are some insights you’ve discovered from Proverbs?

a tribute to my mom

Since it’s Mother’s Day, it seems fitting to celebrate our moms & their various contributions to our lives.  My mom invests in my life in a multitude of different ways, but something that I always appreciate about her is the power of routine.  Despite lots of travels & massive demands on her schedule, my mom is very consistent with her routines.  She consistently exercises, makes healthy eating decisions, memorizes the Bible everyday and maintains healthy sleeping patterns.  My mom is the Queen of Routine.  And here’s what is so powerful about the whole routine thing, she’s done this for almost all of my life.  So when people ask me about my mom & the secret to her success, of course God is the number one source for all success, but I’d quickly add that her consistent routines throughout the years have positioned her for the successful living she enjoys today.

So here’s my closing thought:  let’s make the routines of our daily living conform to our priorities 🙂
