Mission Not Mobs

Our values (core belief that guide our live & pursuits) are the stepping stones that support us on our mission. Our mission, built on our values, is the specific adventure we embark on as we fulfill our vision.


Vision with strategic mission stands firm on values against doubt, mobs and the many competing ideas about who you are and your larger purpose.


Mission freely built on healthy, ethical, mindful, honorable, true, faith-filled values is a wrecking ball to obstacles and lies. My mission - built on a handful of values shaped by my Christian faith, character beliefs, resource usage and family rhythm - helps allows me to focus us on my coaching goals and navigate my life, faith and creative pursuits with clarity. I'm convinced it will do the same for you.


An extreme, but all too real, example: Recently the banjo player for Mumford and Sons shared a positive note about a book he had read by photo journalist Andy Ngo revealing a violent fascistic movement here in the States (note: fascism is cancer to healthy creativity). After the mob-like outcry from fellow artists, antifa, 'fans', and fellow band members - he caved. He apologized for reading the book in the first place and then again for offending the mob. Then he exited the band he'd helped form.


My point?


Values help us weather personal, vocational, social (even fascistic) and spiritual storms. Both alone, and together with those running the race with us.


Mission, personal mission rooted in grace and truth, helps us navigate alternate opinions, ignorance and both real & fabricated outrage toward our values and beliefs. Mission, like-minded mission within our team / band, helps us stand strong together as we move forward in the same direction.


Vision keeps our eyes focused ahead.


You are responsible for your responses to adversity. Be clear. Be honest. Stand on, in and for truth in your creative pursuits. Don't give in to the mob and don't become the mob. After all, they're never satisfied and rarely right.


Play on.
