The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others.

But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again, and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.

It's no secret that I am #4HGrown. I am who I am because of my 4-H experience, almost as powerful an influence as my religious faith. It was an integral aspect of my family and community life.

I learned at an early age that commitment, service, citizenship, health, loyalty, hard work towards a goal, community, teamwork, leadership, safety, empathy, global awareness, and many more ideals that many people treat only as concepts could, in fact, be quite tangible and achievelable ends. I learned that daily habits, attitudes, and goal achievement were as important as skills and knowledge, and that goal-setting and achievement can be EXTREMELY fun!

I have and will invest the rest of my life giving back all and more than I received as a 10-year 4-H member in Edgar County, Illinois. I encourage other 4-Hers to do the same.

Help #Illinois #4H win $20k!

If necessity is the mother of invention, conflict is the father of innovation.

Conflict is not the problem with inept collaborative efforts or dysfunctional teams, although a team's rules of conflict may be. If conflict is allowed to exist in a "right versus wrong" or "win or lose" stance, everyone loses something and teams degrade.

When conflict is based the notion that everyone has "right" ideas, and a "right versus right" or "win or win" stance exists, conflict begins to create a convergence of mission-focused right ideas and the practical application of creative ideas: in other words, innovation.

The Value of Having Distinctive Values

I first wrote and shared this a year ago. I think it's worth re-reading and sharing again now. Warning: it calls you to action. Maybe those actions will help you make your week a little better; maybe your year! Or maybe just your social media experience...
