Here’s the email I sent to leaders in Reno County on Monday, 8/19/13:
I’ve had some conversations recently with people who are plenty fired up about a great many things, but their words and actions aren’t moving toward a purpose. One was fed up with a recent Brownback policy, another couldn’t believe Obama had done this or that thing. Across the board (and more than likely all the way down to our local level), people get fired up about a great many things. But, how we act in light of being fired up may help or hinder progress. So, this Monday AM, what are you fired up about? How are you speaking and acting? And, what might you do to be more purposeful, to step into the arena of inspiration, so that progress is made? Consider these things and, better yet, act on them and see if it doesn’t help move our community along.
