Thank God It's Good Friday

Thank God It's Good Friday

Tracey Jones
Today is Friday, the most yearned for day of the week. We even have a unique acronym for it, TGIF. But while Fridays are tremendous, there is one Friday in particular that the other 51 cannot compete with. That is Good Friday. I always thought good was not good enough to describe what happened on the cross. But God declared His six days of creation week as good, so I guess if it's good enough for God, it's good enough for me!
Are You Reason-Able?

Are You Reason-Able?

Tracey Jones

To be reasonable, you must be able to reason. Our ability to reason is what makes humans humane. And when we abdicate our frontal lobe cortex’s responsibility to interact as adults with others, we devolve into our reptilian brains. And nothing good happens in the Jurassic Park parts of our perceptions.

Retention is Tremendous

Retention is Tremendous

Tracey Jones
“If a man doesn’t want to do something with his heart, there is no use paying him. If you don’t want this man because of what your agency can do for him with a tremendous spirit of obligation, I don’t believe you can bring him through. For the battles ahead, there has to be a bond, and usually, this will be mutual respect and appreciation between the manager and the agent.”
When Everything Means Nothing

When Everything Means Nothing

Tracey Jones

Each of us is instilled within a desire to love and be loved; that is the reason we look forward with hope to tomorrow. There is no other reason we exist than to express love and receive love. This truth is also why some walk around dead long before they are buried. When this cornerstone is not there, our foundation crumbles and we crash. Sometimes, it is a fire that is extinguished; other times, we burn to the ground.

Ben and Brown: A Tale of Two Players

Ben and Brown: A Tale of Two Players

Tracey Jones
This week we got to witness two NFL players exit their home fields for the last time. One departure was spectacular; one was a spectacle. But, let's face it, departures are a fact of life. We constantly generate or abandon ideas, friends, cohorts, relationships, jobs, churches, habits, etc. So, change and movement is part of the cycle of life.
If Not You, Then Who In 2022?

If Not You, Then Who In 2022?

Tracey Jones

Which brings me to the question I have heard more in the past two years than in all my years combined: Where are the tremendous leaders? Our nation is in crisis, our health is under attack, and our Constitution is being shredded. Our global economy is sinking, and all because of poor leadership rooted in the need for power.

Give the Most Tremendous Gift of All

Give the Most Tremendous Gift of All

Tracey Jones
Want to get the perfect gift for everyone on your entire list that will cost you absolutely nothing? Not only is this gift free, but it will not only overjoy the recipient. And if that weren’t enough, this gift grants the giver peace and blessing of exponential proportions every single time. 
Veterans are Tremendous

Veterans are Tremendous

Tracey Jones
The military taught me duty and conscientiousness. Aircraft maintenance taught me safety, production scheduling, quality assurance, and logistics. And my enlisted folks taught me how to be a good leader, how to trust my troops, and how to make decisions. I know from living all over the world how incredibly blessed we are in this country. As a global citizen speaking with those who need our help, I know how thankful people are when we are there to protect them. And I know how proud my parents were of me that I decided to earn my stripes.
The Ghost in the Machine

Is Your Organization Haunted?

Tracey Jones

This Halloween, make sure you avoid the rotten apples that ruin the candy haul. You want treats, not tricksters, so be on the lookout for these three spoilers. These three scary monsters aren't so evil when you deal with them at the earliest opportunity. If you wait too long, you may have created your own organizational horror story.

 

13 Years

13 Years

This past week was a poignant one for me because I celebrated the second anniversary of my mother's homegoing on October 14th and the thirteen-year homegoing of my father on October 16th.

The Mighty Oak Within

The Mighty Oak Within

Tracey Jones
An acorn’s destiny is to become a tree. The acorn has the potential inside of it to become a mighty oak. However, before that happens, the acorn must be buried in the ground and cracked open. In essence, the acorn must die to itself so that it can fulfill a higher and more glorious purpose.
Don't Waste Your Breath on a Stiff-Neck

Don't Waste Your Breath on a Stiff-Neck

Tracey Jones
Nothing you do as a leader to try and help the individual will register with them because their focus is inward. I have worked in numerous entities of all sizes across the globe over the past forty years. I have been in countless personal and familial groupings as well. Unfortunately, I have experienced this type of hard-hearted resistance across all sizes and types of industry, as well as nationality. As leaders, our instinct is to try and fix the issue. You can't fix it because we are responsible to people and not for people.

Live to Work Don't Work to Live

Tracey Jones
In today's world, it's not politically correct to tell someone they have everything they need in life to be successful. That's so boomer and not a ...
There can be no Co-Exist until everyone respects everyone else's right to live their lives based on their core values and convictions. And canceling someone's liberty to speak and think freely and question the facts is the actual hate speech.

The Deception of Perception

Tracey Jones
Censoring divergent viewpoints is never an option in civilizations because it's uncivilized. It's juvenile, reptilian-brained, and sanctimonious. As adults, we should know and do better than cease communication via a phone hang-up, a social media block, a slammed door, or other such dismissive acts that let you know you are no longer worthy of being heard.

In a world that has literally ceased to function the last 13 months because of the fear of death from a global virus, celebrating it seems like an ...
