Slay Your So-Called Giants

Have you ever heard of a giant? You know, guys like Goliath or Andre The Giant.

They’re bigger than life. And scary! Could you imagine picking a fight with either of those two? I’d be shaking in my boots.

Even though I most likely would be fearful meeting either of these giants, others have faced them. And defeated them.

They slayed their giants. I believe you can slay your giants too.

What Is A Giant?

A giant could be many things. Your giant may be a person standing in the way of your dream, a larger organization, or a disability you have.

Anything you see as bigger than your dream could be considered a giant.

They’re standing in front of you. Taunting you. Telling you you can’t succeed.

Catalyst Atlanta 2013 Recap

I returned from the Catalyst Atlanta Conference over the weekend. I can’t believe it’s done already.

My time there was a whirlwind. I was able to attend the Catalyst Lab sessions on Wednesday and then attend two days worth of great leadership content.

These three items were the core of the conference. What are we known as. What are we known by. What are we known for.

When you combine these three pieces, you are known. And known well.

What I Learned At Catalyst

You may be wondering what I learned during my time at Catalyst. Honestly, it was a lot. Almost to the point of overwhelm.
