Stop working.

by Michael Buckingham
Stop working.

PLEASE NOTE: after talking with a few people, it seems I need to take a step back and clarify this role, it’s more than a design position. Let me clarify over here I’m learning that while a job posting often focuses on abilities, great success is about passion. I’m looking for someone who is passionate [...]

Is being me a good idea?

by Michael Buckingham
Is being me a good idea?

As I wrote in my last post, one of the shifts I’m being brought through is a shift from being a creative to a creative leader. But there’s another shift I’m navigating through as well, the shift from being all about Holy Cow to being about Holy Cow and Victory. It’s a both/and world now. [...]

by Michael Buckingham
Your resolution will flop.

No matter what version you read it out of, Proverbs 19:21 sums up 2011, and really the last 7 years of my life quite well. Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. You can make many plans, but the LORD’s purpose will prevail. We humans keep [...]

Hell? Yes!

Seriously? JesusWeen?

by Michael Buckingham
Seriously? JesusWeen?

From the yes-we-have-lost-touch file, I introduce JesusWeen. When I saw this at Gawker I figured, okay hoped, certainly they must be mistaken or just poking fun. Nope. It’s real. And it’s stupid. Listen, I know many/some/all have written Halloween off as evil. And in fact I too believe there are some things about Halloween that [...]
