Who Says – (Tweets and Tips from people you know)
– The essence of creativity is figuring out how to use what you already know in order to go beyond what you already think. – Jerome Bruner, Psychologist/Author

Faith Attack – (A probing question or insightful feedback from the “Purpose Posse.”)
Q: Does a leap of faith always involve taking a step forward?
A: Sometimes it might be a step forward, but other times it could be a step sideways. Think of it in football terms. One way to score a touchdown is with a forward pass. But sometimes a lateral pass will do if the receiver can run it into the n-zone. A leap of faith might not always be a forward step at first but should eventually lead to forward progress.
Wise Crack – (A good laugh or timeless message that stirs the soul.)
Every night, Joe would go down to the liquor store, get a six pack, bring it home, and drink it while he watched TV. One night, as he finished his last beer, the doorbell rang. He stumbled to the door and found a six-foot cockroach standing there. The bug grabbed him by the collar and threw him across the room, then left.
The next night, after he finished his 4th beer, the doorbell rang. He walked slowly to the door and found the same six-foot cockroach standing there. The big bug punched him in the stomach, then left.
The next night, after he finished his 1st beer, the doorbell rang again. The same six-foot cockroach was standing there. This time, he was kneed in the groin and hit behind the ear as he doubled over in pain. Then the big bug left.
The fourth night Joe didn’t drink at all. The doorbell rang. The cockroach was standing there. The bug beat the snot out of Joe and left him in a heap on the living room floor.
The following day, Joe went to see his doctor. He explained the events of the preceding four nights. “What can I do?” he pleaded.
“Not much” the doctor replied. “There’s just a nasty bug going around.”
