Pay it Forward Book Excerpt:

Anna Clado has endured a lot of blackness in her life. This Vancouver-based single mom was abused by a family member, betrayed by a husband, and devastated by the mental tyranny of a string of bad decisions. But she's not complaining. Indeed, Clado is focused on the silver lining that wraps her dark cloud: namely, the opportunity to share with others the gift of revelation and healing that has since swept the darkness away. Pay it Forward: A Mom's Journey through Healing and Recovery is a highly personal account of Clado's last 25 years and the wrong turns, bad choices and terrible suffering that characterize them. For a long and harrowing stretch, Clado bowed under the weight of negative emotion and clinical depression-but then her life took a turn. Talk therapy, clinical medication and natural remedies helped. But more than anything, it was Clado's authentic return to religion that rescued her from certain despair. Since that time, the transformation to her existence has been profound. By accepting God's presence and declaring it publicly, this Filipina-Canadian felt elevated, empowered, and reborn. It is Clado's wish that other young women enduring similar hardships can enjoy a shortcut to this epiphany through her words and, in turn, keep their families together longer, make smart choices more often, and find their voices more resoundingly. Pay it Forward is both Clado's living testimony to how God delivered her from darkness and an open invitation to others to benefit from the illumination of her mistakes. Filled with fresh gratitude for life's gifts and enough inspiration to go around, Clado genuinely succeeds in paying it forward....

Paying it Forward Book Excerpt:

Charles Logan was a highly decorated combat veteran and retired Army Ranger. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan brought back the nightmares of young men and women in Vietnam who’d suffered the loss of limbs and had been compelled to endure those consequences. Blessed with unexpected good fortune, he established ReRanger School, a facility predicated on the belief that technology must meet the needs of our heroes, that our heroes must not be relegated to the limitations of technology. He set out to return to them some small measure of what they’d sacraficed for their country.

Mentor Like Jesus Book Excerpt:

We have visualized Jesus as CEO, as environmentalist, and even thought about what His politics might have been. But in reality, in history, regardless of religious beliefs, Jesus is the greatest mentor of all time. The handful of disciples He coached became totally committed to His mission, worked together as an effective team, and through their efforts, one-third of the world's population follows what Jesus taught. From eleven people to two billion people- now that's effective mentoring.

Peacing the World Together Book Excerpt:

A small refrigerator magnet has adorned our kitchen for more years than I can remember. It bears the image of a dove with the words, Let there be peace, at least between you and me. The three square inches it has displaced is opposite in proportion to its magnitude in the lives of family and friends. It is a mantra, a goal, a challenge. Because for so many, peace does not come easily or naturally! Archeological evidence substantiates human irascibility. Indeed, Homo sapiens were endowed with tendencies toward turbulence. Bones shattered by instruments of humanoids are not uncommon to ancient skeletons. Written documents confirm the same: Cain and Able, David and Goliath, dozens of bloody wars and holocausts are recorded in biblical and pre-biblical documents that manifest mankinds snarling, crotchety predisposition to conflict and violence. Discouraged by that disturbing legacy, we recognize exceptions. Though peace is an intentional accord, it is made easier for some who luckily avoid the ancestral consequence of contentiousness. Through genetic good fortune, they are endowed with intrinsic tranquility and a special quiet devoid of malevolence. Gladly, they accept the gift of unsolicited good genes. Acknowledging a quarrelsome nature, then, we embark on this journey of peace, the road made smoother through relevant prayer, prose and poetry. Each step is an encounter with a peace borne naturally or achieved the hard way. In either case, the following pages are channels of peace . . . at least between you and me. And so we reach out together, striving to influence families and cities, states and nations . . . peacefully. After all, the leaders of mighty and minute countries alike agree that the key to peace between all lands is that it begins within individual hearts, homes and families. For only then can it infect every place on a precious earth we will someday call . . . peaceful. Of all the arboreal wonders on earth, none is more amazingly self-propagating than Ficus Benghalensis, the banyan tree. A massive, improbable sight to behold, the banyan puts down feelers from its branches; the feelers grow into the ground and become roots; and the new roots pump sap up and act as support struts for the tree. In this way, the tree grows outward. Equally as amazing, banyans count their days in hundreds of years as they create the widest natural canopies in the world. A single tree can provide shade for an entire village. It is said that Alexander the Great camped with an army of 7,000 soldiers under the shade of one banyan. In more recent years, an imposing banyan tree has spread its arms and roots over one full acre of land in the city of Fort Myers, Florida. Its notoriety and location are the result of a friendship between two of Americas early business pioneers, men who were close, personal friends. The time was 1925. One of the men visited the county of Andhra Pradesh in India and came upon the largest banyan tree in the world, having since reached 570 years in age and covering the breath of 14 acres with 1,650 roots. At the time of his visit, the entrepreneur had a vested interest in the tree, suspecting it might prove valuable as a source of natural rubber. He brought a seedling back to his friend who had a Winter residence in Fort Myers. The friend was delighted with the gift and planted it on his estate. It grew well and still delights guests. Harvey Firestone was the purveyor of the seedling. His friend, Thomas Edison was the recipient. To this day, seedlings of Edisons great tree are sold at his estate, one of them growing in fine health on this writers property. Similarly, admirers from around the world have procured seedlings and carried them back to faraway lands. Hence, the legacy of the giant tree of India is proliferated by the tree of Thomas Edison, now renowned as the third lar

Hacker Culture and the New Rules of Innovation Book Excerpt:

Fifteen years ago, a company was considered innovative if the CEO and board mandated a steady flow of new product ideas through the company’s innovation pipeline. Innovation was a carefully planned process, driven from above and tied to key strategic goals. Nowadays, innovation means entrepreneurship, self-organizing teams, fast ideas and cheap, customer experiments. Innovation is driven by hacking, and the world’s most innovative companies proudly display their hacker credentials. Hacker culture grew up on the margins of the computer industry. It entered the business world in the twenty-first century through agile software development, design thinking and lean startup method, the pillars of the contemporary startup industry. Startup incubators today are filled with hacker entrepreneurs, running fast, cheap experiments to push against the limits of the unknown. As corporations, not-for-profits and government departments pick up on these practices, seeking to replicate the creative energy of the startup industry, hacker culture is changing how we think about leadership, work and innovation. This book is for business leaders, entrepreneurs and academics interested in how digital culture is reformatting our economies and societies. Shifting between a big picture view on how hacker culture is changing the digital economy and a detailed discussion of how to create and lead in-house teams of hacker entrepreneurs, it offers an essential introduction to the new rules of innovation and a practical guide to building the organizations of the future.

Your Identity in the Trinity Book Excerpt:

Many believers struggle with assurance of salvation, tending to approach obedience to God out of either guilt or legalism. We exist to display God's glory, declare God's gospel, and disciple for God's Great Commission. Instead of embracing these truths, many Christians have believed the lie that their identity in Christ does not affect how they live their lives in obedience to him. The gospel tells us that “being” (identity) comes before “doing” (obedience). This lack of understanding our gospel identity frequently results in either legalistic pride or frustrating guilt. The purpose of this book is to help believers understand their identity in the three persons of the Trinity and then joyfully serve God with gospel obedience. The gospel indicatives in the Bible serve as the fountain and power for obeying the moral imperatives in the Bible. The gospel roots our assurance of salvation and motivation to obey God in our identity, not in moralism, which elevates our performance instead of exalting the finished work of Christ.

Baseball bonded the Collins family, culminating when Michael played in the junior college World Series in Enid, Oklahoma, while Jim was coaching University High School in the Illinois state finalsseven hundred miles apart! Those bonds reached new heights with Jim as a head coach and Michael his assistant at University High School. A doorbell rings and lives are changed forever. A drunk driver and a horrific crash. Two brain surgeries. Five days in the hospital. A funeral. All played out in a very dramatic and public manner. But with all the pain comes some miracles, including a Pay It Forward movement with positive impact around the world in honor of Michael. Knowing it is what Michael would want, Jim returns to the dugout to coach the University High School Pioneers. How does a team of high school kids attend the funeral of their assistant coach one day, then resume their season the next? Players, parents, and coaches pull together unlike any team Jim has coached before. There are no complaints about playing time, just a focus on the emotional well-being of this savvy group of teenagers and their still-grieving head coach. One post-season win would be an upset. A regional championship seemed impossible. The team discovers that no adversity on the field can come close to what they have already experienced off it. Coaches, players, and parents learn the power of one team playing with a purpose bigger than the game. The season ends where Jim never could have imagined that first day of practice.

The 2nd Renaissance The Philosophies of the New Age Book Excerpt:

Have you ever asked yourself a question, when no one was around, and received an answer? When I say received, I do not mean in the since of an auditorial impression. I mean by a deep since of knowing or realization. Some claim to have experienced similar events more often during a deep state of meditation. Within this book holds a collection of notes, diaries, beliefs and theories that I have uncovered during a 3 week long intense meditation session. This material is intended to be read, pondered, tested and debated. Regardless, it can be thought provoking.
