Rethink Possible

(If you do not already subscribe to this Blog, or are not a follower of mine on Twitter, or a friend of mine on Facebook, I encourage you to do so at the right of this page.)

AT&T has been flooding the airwaves with commercials touting their positives, from broadband to national coverage (OK by me, an iPhone user). The tag-line in all of their ads is the phrase: Rethink Possible.

That resonates with me: Rethink Possible. Perhaps we ought to consider that in our relationships, leadership and creativity.
  • In our relationships, we can focus on the possibilities of those we interact with, envisioning them as what they can be, rather than what they are.
  • In our leadership, let's look beyond the problems and instead lead people to an attainable ultimate outcome.
  • In our creativity, I suggest that we look beyond the blank canvas, empty score, or chapter one, and envision the finished product.
Rethink Possible!

Question to answer: What can you rethink that you might consider as impossible?

This is what Brian McClaren is trying to do in his new book "A New Kind of Christianity." Can't say I agree with everything in the book, but it is a refreshing read. Have you read? (Why not? :-) . . He is, of course, being denounced by the "usual suspects" as being a heretic. Would like to know what you think about the book. Be well. Regards to Elaine

Hey Phil! Haven't read it yet, but it is in my 'stack' of new books to read. Thanks for the insight. Hope all is well!
