Commandments: A divine rule. A rule to be observed strictly. The 7 Commandments of Leadership: Thou shalt protect thy character. Who are you when no one is looking? Is who you claim to be who you really are? In my experience, true character is eventually revealed in leadership. Every time. When stress mounts — when …

Any useful technology that's successfully adopted by a culture won't be abandoned. Ever. (Except by top-down force). The technology might be replaced by a better alternative, but society doesn't go backwards. After books were accepted, few went back to scrolls....

Story
Tagline
Christ Follower, Husband, Father, Pop, Stage 4 Colon Cancer Survivor, Music Biz Exec
Introduction
I'm married to my best friend in all the world. She still takes my breath away. After 32 years she still finds ways to amaze me.

I'm a father to 2 sons who constantly drive me with their creativity and passion. They are both brilliant musicians, and godly men. I'm looking forward to seeing what they will do with their talents.

I have been in the music business 25 years. Change is a constant. I'm still able to get up in the morning excited about where we can go today. Music continues to touch the soul. It's still all about the song.

Since my diagnosis 8 years ago with Stage IV Colon Cancer, I've become involved with Livestrong.
 
Everyday, cancer kills 1,500 Americans— one person every minute. This year, more than 550,000 Americans and six million people worldwide will succumb to this vicious disease. One out of three women and one in every two men will be diagnosed in their lifetimes.

Who will you wear the yellow for?
