  • We usually think in terms of, “What is the shortest amount of time and the least amount of money we can invest to make a permanent change?”
  • There is no time in a child’s life that you can’t be a great parent
  • You can’t take a vacation from parenting
  • It’s not exceptional to meet people’s needs it’s exceptional that people don’t think they can or should do it
  • One of the most difficult things you can do is fail and fail publicly
  • Sometimes not taking the money from a donor is the smartest thing you can do, particularly when the gift is given with the hope of it being given to something that will take you off mission
  • The day I walked into my job there was a succession plan
  • There is no plan for the company to go worse upon my departure than when I am here.
  • If you love your organization then you have to leave when it is going up so that way when the next person comes in they don’t come in at a bad time getting wrongly compared to you.
  • It’s easy to have faith when everything is going great; the real test of faith is when you’re faced with something that your faith in God is the only thing that will keep you going
