About 360 Minutes
I’m a Christian, a husband, and a father. I’m an ordained deacon, and a small-group ministry leader. I’m quite proud of being an Eagle Scout. I’m a frustrated novelist, perpetually working on several unfinished novels…and maybe a children’s book…maybe. I often have found, and still find, myself in desperate need of more time than I have available to accomplish everything that seems important. I must continually remind myself – and be reminded by those I trust – that everything is not equally important.
I have been a manager, a supervisor, an independent program evaluator, a graduate assistant, a volunteer fireman, a tractor driver, and a Boy Scout Leader. I also have worked on Capitol Hill, albeit briefly. I’m presently employed as a management professional.
I live near Washington, DC, with my wonderful family, several pets, and a yardfull of delightful wildlife. Applying the principles I discuss in this blog, more often than not with the help of a very patient and loving wife, an unrivaled confidante, and a world-class executive coach, enables me to enjoy these blessings far more than I used to.
For anyone still looking for credentials: I hold a graduate degree in International Relations and Comparative Politics. I hold a graduate certificate in Earned Value Management from the Project Management Institute College of Performance Management. I’m Kaplan & Norton Balanced Scorecard Certified Â® .
Be wise in the way you act…making the most of every opportunity.
Colossians 4:5 (NIV)
Have fun, and enjoy life. If you aren’t, find something else to do where you can.
