Two heads are better than one, but what about 4 or 6 or 7? Their additional combined insights, wisdom, and creativity exceeds a single perspective.

One day, a teenage Benjamin Franklin entered the Boston home of the renowned Reverend Cotton Mather. After their lengthy discussion, he walked Franklin through a tight doorway on the way out with a low beam as Mather told him, “Stoop, stoop!”. Not paying attention, Franklin bumped his head on the beam. The older, wiser Mather found a teachable moment: “You are young and have the world before you. Stoop as you go through it and you will miss many hard thumps”.
All his life, Franklin never forgot Mather’s immortal words.
2019 has produced many good things, and yet, it has been one of my worst years.
Can I be brutally honest, since you are my friends? I have taken quite a lot of shots this year, and am a bit beaten from the beams. Frankly I, like several others I have spoken to, am soooo ready for a new year! Now, this is NOT one of those downer letters that you read and feel sad after reading it.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

What is it?
“Many times momentum is the only difference between winning and losing. With it, everyone is expectant and energized, and people tend to perform at their peak potential. Without it, people lose heart and have difficulty finding motivation.” – John C. Maxwell
Have you ever felt that you lost your motivation and your momentum?
TRUTH: Sometimes I have.
It felt as if I took a punch in the passion gut, and was bent over. While I was on the path to one of my life’s biggest goals-my doctorate-life's challenges, like a ton of bricks, unloaded on me. Now, let me put this in perspective for you.
I’m just like you. I came from small beginnings, have big hopes and dreams, and want to help as many people as I can along life’s way. But I lost my MOJO, my motivation, and I just wanted to come home and escape. Watch a move,have a drink, and just make world go away.

“Where do I fit best?” Have YOU ever asked that?
This question, along with many others like it, have been asked.
-Is there a job tailored just for me?
-Where will my gifts and talents be used to their fullest?
-What can I do to find my perfect place where I work?
So, are you where you “perfectly fit”? Many are not, and surprisingly, have worked that way for YEARS!!!
During the mid-twentieth century, researchers like Katherine Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs-Myers, John Holland, and David Keirsey, investigated person-environment fit and person-job fit. (PE fit and career development theories)
Millions of people have taken personality- and career-based assessments created by these theorists. Have you heard of the MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), Holland’s Career Wheel or Holland’s Codes, or the Keirsey Temperament Sorter (KTS-II)?
I highly recommend taking these informative assessments. They will enlighten you...
