Excited or Entrenched

Excited or Entrenched

Tracey Jones
The landscape of our lives is constantly changing which wreaks a great deal of havoc on humans who would often rather die than change. We lose relationships and our health, we miss once in a lifetime and repeated opportunities, yet we continue to blame everyone but ourselves.
Producing a Tremendous Harvest

Producing a Tremendous Harvest

Tracey Jones
Here comes my favorite season of the year—fall. I can see the day’s becoming slightly shorter; I watch for a leaf or two to begin transitioning to flames of gold and red; I hear and see the birds starting their migration to their new home. In South Central PA, the harvest is a sight to behold. This year's rain and sun ratio were magnificent. I have never seen fields of corn as high and green as the ones that fill our landscape. Autumn is the time of year when we look to the harvest and reap the products of our labor.
Entremanureship

Entremanureship

Tracey Jones
Ah, entrepreneurship—the opportunity to be your own boss, to come to work when you want, to not ever have to deal with office politics, to make millions and never even had to change out of your jammies. Over ten years ago I transitioned out of the soul-sucking, life stifling world of bureaucracies to run through the liberating fields of entrepreneurship.
Driven to Win or Guided by Grace?

Driven to Win or Guided by Grace?

Tracey Jones
When we allow life to unfold before us —versus trying to wrestle it into a constructed box— our lives take a more relaxed and joyful form. There’s a difference between kicking down doors and allowing them to swing wide open when the time is right.
When the Information Superhighway Leads to Nowhere

When the Information Superhighway Leads to Nowhere

Tracey Jones
The information superhighway can lead you to a more evolved mind if you avoid lazy thinking, research your sources, and search out divergent opinions so you can fully understand the issue at hand. A closed mind is a dying mind and, in this day and age, there is no reason why we should not be getting bigger brains and traveling the super highway together on a tremendous road trip every single day.
Lead Like a Tree

Lead Like a Tree

Tracey Jones

As leaders, we wear many hats. We are optimists, encouragers, ethicists, decision-makers, saviors, and sense-makers. So just like the mighty forests, we must do the same for ourselves and our organization. We need to be intentional about who we allow in our forest. After all, you cannot get it right without the right people. We need to stay nourished as well because leading others, although incredibly uplifting, can also be unbelievably draining. We must deal with bureaucracies, laws, budgets, attitudes, and global issues. To stay above the fray, we need to make sure our roots go deep; so deep that when the winds of change or fires of crisis come into our forest, we can not only survive, but thrive.

The Theory of Transcendence

The Theory of Transcendence

Tracey Jones
Everything in life has potential, but it must be developed. That never happens without a catalyst. Motivation arises from a need greater than self. Motivation is about uncorking potential. You have potential, but nothing happens until something is put in you to act as a catalyst.

What Happens In Book Club Doesn’t Stay in Book Club

Tracey Jones

With everyone clamoring about what’s wrong with the world today, there’s one solution that’s rarely suggested: reading. They tell me it’s too old school, that people’s attention spans can’t focus for that long, that everyone is too busy with digital addictions and watching online to take the time to read. Well then, they’re never going to find what they are looking for.
